This report is used to report test security and ethics violations of the AZELLA before, during, and after test administration. All incidents must be thoroughly investigated by the district and school prior to submitting this form. When the test security and ethics incidents involve the AZELLA test, this secure report needs to be submitted to the Arizona Department of Education's Assessments AZELLA Team within 24 hours of the incident. ADE will respond within 2 full business days of the submission.
Large-scale assessments like the AZELLA are developed, administered, and scored to meet comprehensive standards of validity, reliability, and fairness for a wide range of learners. In assessment, reliability is the characteristic of an assessment that allows its results to be repeatable. A reliable assessment will produce stable and consistent results. We can ensure these standards are maintained by closely adhering to security policies throughout test administration and conducting the assessment in a fair and ethical manner.
The Arizona Department of Education, or ADE, is committed to taking every step required to assure the security and confidentiality of all state test materials, including the AZELLA.
All AZELLA staff whether they are inventorying, distributing, or administering the tests, or just have incidental access to AZELLA materials must abide by these security standards. Failure to do so could negatively impact the validity of the AZELLA, and the results of the test. It could also lead to allegations of test impropriety.
