      You are invited to apply to participate in a California Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) Program standard setting process for the Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS) for grades two, three, and four. A standard setting determines the cut scores for reporting performance levels (advanced, proficient, basic, below basic, and far below basic).

      Participants in the STS standard setting panel who are NOT teachers or curriculum specialists must meet the following criteria:

      ·        Be a: school administrator, parent/guardian of a student enrolled in bilingual education, or a bilingual community representative

      ·        Be bilingual and biliterate in Spanish and English

      ·        Have at least three years of close involvement in bilingual education, including familiarity with the capabilities of students taking the STS (Other examples of involvement include having leadership roles with bilingual parent groups, experience working with and/or representing teachers in bilingual education, or having a demonstrated leadership role in bilingual communities in California, especially as related to education.)

      ·        Knowledge of and experience with the California content standards is highly desired, but not required

      Standard setting for reading/language arts is scheduled for February 4–6, 2009, in Sacramento. Standard setting for mathematics is scheduled for February 9–11, 2009, in Sacramento. ETS will pay for all travel expenses; however, no stipends for your time are available.
