BEST Plus 2.0 Scoring Refresher Training - July 25, 2017

 Registration is closed for this event
This session is designed to strengthen the scoring accuracy skills learned by trained test administrators in the initial training workshop. Participants will refresh their understanding of the scoring rubric and recalibrate their scoring in order to ensure reliable and accurate scores in Listening Comprehension, Language Complexity, and Communication. Through the use of the Scoring Refresher Videos, the Scoring Activity Video, and the Scoring Refresher Workbook, test administrators will determine their scoring accuracy. Each participant and their administrator will receive a final Scoring Activity Feedback Sheet. On the Feedback Sheet, overall performance scores will be given for each of the three scoring rubric components. In each of these components, scores will fall into three categories of scoring accuracy:  
   
1. Recommended
2. Acceptable 
3. Unacceptable
 
These Feedback Sheets will give program managers and staff the opportunity to remediate areas of scoring difficulty to ensure that only those who are able to score accurately participate in BEST Plus test 2.0 administration. Scoring Activity results will be sent to both the participants themselves and their agency’s program manager. Program managers must ensure that test administrators with “unacceptable” results participate in remediation activities either in-house or through the RAEN. Participants will meet with the RAEN’s BEST Plus 2.0 trainer for the final remediation activity.
 
ACCES/AEPP requires that trained and active BEST Plus 2.0 test administrators participate in a RAEN sponsored/coordinated Refresher session approximately once a year.
 
Test administrators should review the BEST Plus 2.0 Test Administrators Guide and bring it to this session. Test administrators who have completed this training within the past year should bring their Scoring Refresher Workbooks. Those attending this session for the first time will receive workbooks.
 
Trainer: Mellissa Woodhams, regional trainer certified by the Center for Applied Linguistics
