In accordance with new CASAS assessment and implementation guidelines, CT requires biennial recertification of all staff who are involved with testing, both paper/pencil and eTesting.
To administer CASAS reading, math, and listening tests, adult education programs must ensure that a CCS Program Facilitator is on staff or actively pursuing Facilitator status.
The Director’s designee becomes a Facilitator by completing Online Self-Paced Modules offered by CASAS:
Module 1: CASAS Implementation Basics
Module 2: CASAS eTests Implementation
Module 3: CASAS Paper Test Implementation
Connecticut Competency System (CCS) for New Program Facilitators and New Directors training offered by ATDN in cooperation with the State Department of Education.
The Program Facilitator performs critical functions that ensure the comprehensive and high-quality implementation of the CASAS system (CSDE, 1993).
The Program Facilitator maintains certification by attending the Statewide Annual Meeting and completing the refresher training offered by CASAS every two years and submitting new Certificates of Completion to ATDN.
