ELPAC: Your Input is Needed!
ELPAC email update, October 22, 2021.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
As you may be aware, the ELPAC Writing tests for students in kindergarten through grade two (K–2) are currently administered on paper–pencil Answer Books, which are distributed and collected through shipping processes then scanned through ETS machinery for scoring. This process has often created numerous logistical and time-related challenges. As a result, ETS is working on developing a new way of collecting K–2 Writing responses that will streamline and expedite the current processes.
Secure Capture of Response (SCoR) is a web-based application designed to make reviewing, submitting, and tracking ELPAC K–2 Writing tests easier and more efficient. It involves the use of any internet-connected device with a camera through which users will be able to securely capture images of student item responses from the Answer Book and upload them directly to ETS. Moreover, SCoR will have dashboards that enable electronic, real-time tracking of response captures and submissions
In order to help inform the development of SCoR, please participate in a quick survey , which will take no more than five minutes of your time.
We appreciate your feedback!
Please direct any questions regarding SCoR to Yoon Byun at firstname.lastname@example.org.
