Test Taker Lists

The Test Taker lists show test information for each test taker. These lists will start to show data as soon as the test taker answers the first question. Reading and Listening scores are available as soon as the test taker completes those sections (refresh the page for updates). Writing and Speaking scores are typically available in 3 to 7 business days. They may be available sooner, so check the test results screen periodically to determine the grading progress.

If you are using a district/organization or school/sub-organization viewing code, use the View Summary feature to drill-down to the desired class/testing group.

A two-part Level Key is used (shown below) to provide information for interpreting the student levels. One part is for Writing and Speaking and the other part is for Reading and Listening. For more information, see the STAMP4Se Benchmarks and Rubrics Guide.

  • Non-target language – The sample is not in the target language.
  • Off-topic – The sample does not relate to the item topic.
  • Violent/Profane – The sample includes violent or inappropriate language.
Other possible reasons for “Not Ratable” Speaking items include:
  • No audio – The test taker clicked NEXT without recording.
  • No speaking – A Speaking sample was submitted, but has only background noise or is not understandable.

Individual Reports

Individual Reports show the Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking levels attained on the STAMP4Se test for each test taker. They provide in clear, direct language what test takers at each level are generally able to do.

  • Click View on the Test Taker list to access the Individual Report for a specific test taker.
  • Click Class Batch Reports to create reports for all test takers on the list (for best results, wait until all testing and grading is complete).
  • To print the report, use your browser’s print function.
  • You can create a PDF version of the report if your printer selection includes a PDF writer.

Each test taker’s report has a scoring graphic for each section of the test. This inverted pyramid has a yellow shaded area that depicts the level attained. The level is also shown in the red bar for each section of the test.

Individual Report

For the Writing and Speaking phases of the test, an additional blue shaded area will appear if the test taker had one test item that scored at a higher level. This serves as an alert that the test taker is operating across a range of proficiency levels with this skill. This situation is quite common for test takers in the Novice and Intermediate ranges, mostly due to limited topic exposure and control.

For Reading and Speaking sections of the test, you will also see a Scaled Score to the right of the level. These can be used to track student progress within the levels.

For the Writing and Speaking sections, click on Sample 1 or Sample 2 to read or hear the test taker's actual response for each specific task.

Line Item Summary Download

The Line Item Summary download creates an Excel file that includes test taker test results and other test taking data. From the spreadsheet you can create a customized report with just the fields you want, and sort it as needed.

For example:

  • Sort by test Status to quickly see test takers who need to finish the test
  • Sort by Speaking Score to determine if any test takers had "Not Ratable" speaking responses
  • Use the file as a basis for uploading test results to your student information system
  • And more!

To create the download file:

  1. Click Line Item Summary, located near the bottom of most screens
  2. Follow the instructions on your screen, which may vary depending on your computer setup

Summary Chart Download

In many cases, a screen print of the Summary Charts on the test results screen will meet your needs for graphical presentation of the summary information. However, if you prefer to create a different style of chart or graph, the Summary Chart download makes it easy to create an Excel file with the information from the Summary Charts.

To create the download file:

  • Click Summary Chart, located near the bottom of most screens.
  • Follow the instructions on your screen, which may vary depending on your computer setup.

There are eight columns of information for each level. For each domain, there is a column that displays the total number of test takers at the level and the total percent of test takers at the level.
