Avant STAMP 4Se Docs
Following these procedures will help assure the security of the STAMP 4Se test and the validity of each assessment.
The test proctor needs to provide the test takers with the information below. The information can be written on a whiteboard/ blackboard, projected on a screen, or given verbally – but test codes and passwords should never be distributed to test takers on slips of paper.
The proctor must remain in the testing area throughout testing. Circulate while the testing is taking place to ensure that no paper, pens, pencils, cell phones, etc. are being used. Make sure that no additional windows or applications (such as Word, email or Web browsers) are open or launched during testing. Make sure that no dictionaries, textbooks or other support materials are being used. There should be only one student at each computer during the test, and there should be no interaction between students.
Any infractions to the above regulations are to result in the immediate logging out of the individual test taker’s test by the proctor (by closing the browser), and the suspension of testing for that individual test taker. Such incidents shall be reported to the Testing Coordinator.
If a test taker needs to resume the test due to lost connection (or any other reason), the login information will need to be entered exactly as originally entered. STAMP 4Se should resume from the point at which the test taker left off. The “Continue where you left off” screen should be the first screen to appear after logging in to resume a test. If the Audio Playback Check/Audio Recording Check screen appears instead, the test taker must STOP the test. This indicates that the Full Name entered this time is different than it was when originally entered. If necessary, the teacher or proctor can use the Teacher Login to look up the test taker name.
After a testing session is completed, the test proctor or test coordinator may log in to the STAMP 4Se test reporting website (https://stamp4se.avantassessment.com) to view test results and identify test takers who did not complete the test.
Writing and Speaking scores are typically available within 3 to 7 business days after test completion. They may be available sooner, so check the test results screen periodically to determine the grading progress.
After scoring of a test is complete, the proctor or test coordinator may print individual test taker reports or download a Microsoft Excel file of test results. Do not allow the test takers to access the teacher report page or see other test taker scores.
