Subject: WI Statewide ACT Assessments Update – Dec 7
Dear educators,
Thank you for completing the “Manage Participation” process for ACT and WorkKeys. There are only a few
schools that did not complete this required task by the deadline. ACT is following up with those schools via email
and phone call this week and next. Test coordinators will now turn their attention to submitting
accommodations requests to ACT (deadline: January 12) and placing orders for WorkKeys accommodated
materials (deadline January 17). Please read below for resources and tips related to accommodations and
preparing for the ACT and WorkKeys test administration.
Tips for submitting accommodations requests – Deadline January 12
? If a student has previously approved ACT accommodations, the requester must manually apply the
request to the state test dates in TAA.
? As announced previously, non-college reportable accommodations are not offered.
? Schools can have multiple staff members with the Test Accommodations Coordinator role to enter
requests in TAA.
? You will know you have submitted an accommodation request when you receive a confirmation email.
? You will receive an email when an accommodations decision has been made. The email will prompt you
to log into TAA to see the decision.
? Log into TAA at any time to review the status of your requests. You can sort the student list by status to
see which requests are in review, approved, partially approved, require action, or are not approved.
? Requests that are not approved can be edited for reconsideration until January 26.
? If a request is not approved and you are unsure about what documentation to submit for
reconsideration, consult the ACT Documentation Policy or contact the ACT Accommodations team at
800-553-6244 x1788 or actaccoms@act.org.
? Review the List of Allowable Accessibility Supports. Local arrangements (embedded/universal supports)
require prior planning but do not need to be entered into TAA. List local arrangements on the
Irregularity Report submitted after testing.
? Accommodations resources can be found here: https://dpi.wi.gov/assessment/act/accommodations
Student Data
? DPI will upload student information from WISEdata into PearsonAccessnext on January 9.
? Please have student data in your local Student Information System up-to-date on January 8 to ensure
accurate and up-to-date student information is loaded.
Test Materials
? Test coordinators do not place an order for initial test date, standard time test materials; this order is
automatically generated by your student enrollment count in PearsonAccessnext after the student data
upload on January 9.
? Orders for ACT-approved accommodations or English learners (EL) supports materials for the initial test
date are automatically generated based on approved ACT accommodations in TAA.
? Test coordinators (TCs) must manually place an order for WorkKeys accommodations test materials in
PearsonAccessnext.
o Instructions can be found on p. 13 in the PearsonAccessnext User Guide for WorkKeys.
o The deadline to place WorkKeys accommodated materials order is January 17, 2018.
o The Standard Time Testing material count will populate after DPI completes the Student Data
Upload on January 9.
o TCs enter the quantity of WorkKeys accommodations materials needed. After the data upload
on January 9, TCs can adjust the quantity of standard time WorkKeys materials.
