Building Schedules for TCAP Spring 2012

Running Creek Elementary              Singing Hills Elementary

Elizabeth Middle School                 Elizabeth High School

   Frontier High School

All Elizabeth School District students participate in state and district tests to assess their progress toward the Colorado State Standards. This information is used to help teachers identify each student’s instructional needs and for parents to know what and how their child is learning. The assessments are also used in combination with other measures to gauge how well students are progressing.

Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) formerly CSAP is Colorado’s standards-based assessment designed to provide a picture of student performance to schools, districts, educators, parents and the community. The primary purpose of the assessment program is to determine the level at which Colorado students meet the Colorado Model Content Standards in the content areas assessed. The TCAP is collaboratively developed by the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado teaching community and CTB/McGraw-Hill. The data should be used to keep abreast of individual student, school, and district progress toward attaining higher student achievement levels. The fact that TCAP is based on the Colorado Model Content Standards will ensure that all districts are held to the same challenging standards that Coloradans expect for their students regardless of whether they live in urban, suburban, or rural areas.

  • TCAP tests students reading, writing, and math skills in grades 3-10.  Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 also are tested in science.
  • CTAP is administered in the spring of each year.  Each test includes multiple choice, short answers, and long essay questions.  Each test takes from 60 to 65 minutes, depending on the grade level.
  • Based on their performance, students receive a rating of unsatisfactory, partially proficient, proficient or advanced.
Colorado English Language Assessment (CELA)
The Colorado English Language Assessment is an assessment for second language learners who are not yet proficient in English.
  • CELA tests a student’s ability to listen to, speak, read, and write in English.  CELA is used to test only those students kindergarten through 12th grade that are not yet fully proficient in the English language. 
  • CELA is administered in January of each year.  Each test requires students to listen and respond to directions, speak in words, sentences, and phrases, and read and write in English.  Each test takes about 1 hour, depending on the grade level.
  • Based on their performance, students will receive a designation of non-English proficient, limited English proficient, or fully English proficient.
Dynamic Inventory of Basic Early Literacy Skills (DIBELS)
DIBELS is a quick screener to help teachers know if students are on track in the development of their reading skills.
  • DIBELS is administered to students in grades K-3 (some schools use DIBELS up to and including the 6th grade).
  • DIBELS is administered by the teacher in the fall, winter, and spring.
  • Students will be classified as at risk, at some risk, and at low risk.
  •  
Development of Reading Assessment 2 (DRA2)
DRA2 is an assessment that teachers use in the classroom to help them determine how well students are reading different types of text.
  • DRA2 helps teachers to determine independent reading level and instructional needs and primarily is administered to grades kindergarten to 3rd grade students at least once during the school year.
  • The test uses benchmarked reading books ranging from levels A to 40 to determine the reading level for students.
  • Students are scored on reading engagement, fluency, and comprehension.
The Colorado Alternate Assessments (CoAlt) formerly CSAP-A is a standards-based assessment designed specifically for students with significant cognitive disabilities and is meant to provide a picture of student performance to schools, districts, educators, parents and the community. The primary purpose of the assessment program is to determine the level at which Colorado students meet the Expanded Benchmarks which are linked to the Colorado Model Content Standards in the content areas assessed. The data should be used to keep abreast of individual student progress toward attaining achievement in the content areas
  • CSAPA tests students reading, writing, and math skills in grades 3-10.  Students in grades 5, 8, and 10 also are tested in science.
  • CSAPA is administered in the spring of each year.  Rather than paper and pencil tests, students are rated on their response to tasks presented by the teacher.
  • Based on their performance, students receive a rating of inconclusive, emerging, exploring, developing, or novice. 
The Colorado ACT Exam (CO ACT)
The Colorado ACT is an assessment of 11th grade students to determine their level of college readiness.
  • CO ACT tests English, mathematics, reading, and science.  Students in grade 11 are tested each year in the spring.
  • Students may take the National ACT again in the 12th grade as a part of their college entrance requirements.
  • Students receive an overall composite score and subtest scores for each content area.
