Updates and Reminders
2016–17 Superintendent’s Designation of CELDT District Coordinator.
New districts must contact the CELDT Customer Support Center to obtain a Superintendent’s Designation of CELDT District Coordinator Authorization Request 2016–17 Edition (SDF) form. If your CELDT District Coordinator is changing, submit an Authorization Request by logging on to the secure District Portal and selecting the link to the form at the top of the page.
2016–17 Edition Additional Ordering Window.
The Additional Ordering Window is now open. Districts may place one Additional Order through the secure District Portal each month. A $45 processing fee will be charged for each subsequent order in the month. Allow 5–7 business days for processing. Report overages and shortages for these shipments within two weeks of receipt.
2015–16 Edition Initial Assessment (IA) and Annual Assessment (AA)/IA Combined Summary Reports.
These reports will be shipped to districts in November 2016. Contact the CELDT Customer Support Center if your district has not received these reports by Wednesday, December 7, 2016. These dates are subject to change.
2017–18 Edition CELDT Scoring Training of Trainers (STOT) Workshops.
STOT registration will open on Monday, February 13, 2017. Registration priority for the 2017–18 STOT workshops will be given to CELDT district trainers who have never attended a STOT workshop. CELDT district trainers who have previously attended a STOT workshop must fulfill the 2017–18 training requirement by either completing the online training presentations and quizzes in the Moodle Training Site or attending a regional workshop. The dates and locations for the statewide and regional 2017 STOT workshops are posted on the Workshop Locations Web page.
2016–17 Edition Local Scoring Tool (LST).
The LST is now available. Use this calculation tool to prepare a Preliminary Local Student Score Report for students who take the CELDT as an Initial Assessment (IA). The LST is available via the Quick Links section on the CELDT Web Site.
2016–17 Edition Pre-Identification (Pre-ID) Extended Window.
Pre-ID labels are available year-round. Prices and fees for files submitted during this window and information about providing a new purchase order, and the printing schedule are available on the Pre-ID Services Web page.
On-Your-Own Shipping (i.e., districts shipping scorable documents via their own carrier without using the online scorable Request a Pickup application) is not necessary unless the shipping deadlines for the close of the Annual Assessment or Initial Assessment windows are not met (October and June administration months). If the deadline for placing a Request for Pickup for October and/or June is missed, CELDT District Coordinators may ship test materials using a traceable carrier at the district’s expense. See the 2016–17 Edition District and Test Site Coordinator’s Manual Retrieval Schedule for additional information and deadlines that must be met for processing.
