Sec. 11518.37 - Unlisted Resources
§ 11518.37. Unlisted Resources
(a) An LEA may submit, on behalf of a pupil who has an IEP or Section 504 Plan, a request through the assessment management system to the CDE, prior to the administration of the ELPAC or the Alternate ELPAC, to allow the use and approval of an unlisted resource. The LEA ELPAC coordinator or the site ELPAC coordinator shall make the request on behalf of the LEA ten business days prior to the pupil's first day of ELPAC testing. The CDE shall respond to the request within four business days from the date of the electronic transmission. Transmissions must include:
(1) LEA name and county/district/school code;
(2) School/test site and school code;
(3) LEA ELPAC coordinator name, phone number, and email address;
(4) Site ELPAC coordinator name, phone number, and email address;
(5) Statewide Student Identifier(s) for the pupil(s) for which the unlisted resource(s) is/are being requested;
(6) ELPAC test and grade;
(7) If the pupil has an IEP, include the primary disability code and/or designated Section 504 Plan; and
(8) Description of the unlisted resource being requested.
(b) The LEA must annually request approval by the CDE for the use of an unlisted resource by a pupil.
(c) The use of an unlisted resource by a pupil will not be allowed if the CDE determines its use threatens the security of the test.
(d) In addition to determining whether the unlisted resource may be used, the CDE will determine whether the unlisted resource changes the construct being measured by the ELPAC.
(1) If the CDE determines the unlisted resource changes the construct being measured, the unlisted resource will not be approved by the CDE but may still be used by the pupil; although, it will affect the pupil's overall score and that pupil will receive an individual score report.
(2) If CDE determines the unlisted resource does not change the construct being measured, the unlisted resource will be approved. A pupil using an approved unlisted resource will receive an individual score report.
(e) The following non-embedded unlisted resources have already been determined to change the construct being measured on the ELPAC and therefore are not approved for use during ELPAC testing:
(1) bilingual dictionary;
(2) English dictionary;
(3) signed exact English;
(5) translations of test items and questions; and
(6) translated word lists.(1. New section filed 8-1-2019 as an emergency; operative 8-1-2019 (Register 2019, No. 31).
