Training Workshop: ACT QualityCore Training
This session will provide an overview of the new ACT QualityCore test administration system and help users learn how to:
- Set up and manage users
- Upload and maintain student accounts
- Upload and modify classes
- Administer ACT QualityCore tests online
The demonstration website supports the creation of a demonstration district with up to 10 demonstration schools that enable District Test Coordinators, School Test Coordinators, Teachers, and Test Administrators to practice the functions required to administer ACT QualityCore tests. The website also enables students to complete a demonstration test to become familiar with the test delivery system. The system generates account information for 25 student accounts for each school as well as these administrative users:
- Two District Test Coordinators (primary and secondary)
- Two School Test Coordinators (primary and secondary) for each school
- One Teacher per school
Other data for the demonstration district (e.g., courses, computer-based and online tests, students requiring accommodations, and students not enrolled in courses) is created to help administrative users learn the system.
Note: The demo system enables you to add additional users as needed. For detailed information on using the ACT QualityCore system, see the appropriate manual:
- Test Coordinators Manual. This manual is designed for District Test Coordinators and School Test Coordinators to provide detailed instructions on using the online administration system to manage administrative users and students, prepare for paper-based and computer-based testing, and manage ongoing computer-based testing.
- Test Administration Manual This manual is designed for Teachers and Test Administrators to prepare for and administer computer-based testing. It contains step-by-step instructions to help Teachers and Test Administrators prepare for administering computer-based tests and verbal directions for administering the tests to students.
Important: When practicing CSV uploads please use the following course codes. For the Training Math MCMC course use 980000 and for the Training English MCMC course use 990000.
