3.3.11 AssessmentSubTest

A psychological construct measured by the assessment. Operationally, a subtest is a class of scores on an assessment. Some assessments may have only one subtest or type of score but most assessments measure more than one psychological construct. The subtest can be based upon items in a section or items that are empirically related. Subtests can also be composites of other subtests that are combined using a particular algorithm. Examples of subtests of an assessment are math total, reading composite, total test, and English composition.

3.3.25 LearningResourcePackage

Many instructional applications in a SIF zone need to share teaching and learning objects. Curriculum planning applications, content repositories, learning management systems, etc.—all of these systems need to share instructional content utilizing the LearningResource object.

The LearningResourcePackage object provides a transport envelope to move these files across the SIF zone.

Note: With SIF Implementation Specification version 2.4 the choice element depicted in the diagram below has changed. In the XSD files, the choice element used to be rendered as a sequence of optional elements. Now, in the XSD files, the choice element is rendered as an xs:choice. This may cause problems with agents that treat the choice element as two optional elements rather than a choice of one and only one of the choices.

3.3.37 SchoolCourseInfo

This object is for course information.

All local ids in non-authoritative objects are optional. It is therefore up to the provider and the actual agent's design and choreography to determine whether or not to use or local ids from parent objects. There are cases in some subscribing systems where it might not possible to add RefId columns and therefore the RefId of related objects cannot be stored. For example a target system that listens to TimeTableSubject events and updates them may not be able to store the associated SchoolCourseInfoRefId with that object. The only way it can link the TimeTableSubject object with the appropriate course might be through its local course id. Having local ids that link the parent objects with the child object can simplify the agent design. Generally it is suggested to use the appropriate RefIds whenever possible and only use local ids if there is no other way to use RefIds.

SIF_Events are reported for this object.

3.3.42 SIF_ReportObject

This object is an envelope used to send other data objects, typically reports, to authorities such as state departments of education, district offices, other schools, etc. It is also used to signal a data collector agent that a report is compiled and ready to be requested. SIF_ReportObject contains a data object, which is either complete or partial (a partial data object is one that contains a subset of the elements for the data object). One or a series of SIF_ReportObjects contained within one or a series of related SIF_Response messages makes up a complete report.

SIF_Events are reported for this object.

3.3.54 Sif3AssessmentSubTest

A psychological construct measured by the assessment. Operationally, a subtest is a class of scores on an assessment. Some assessments may have only one subtest or type of score but most assessments measure more than one psychological construct. The subtest can be based upon items in a section or items that are empirically related. Subtests can also be composites of other subtests that are combined using a particular algorithm. Examples of subtests of an assessment are math total, reading composite, total test, and English composition.

SIF_Events are not reported for this object.

xs:string
 Items/Item/ResponseLocation
     
O

An optional element that contains a URL pointing to the location of the response or additional response.

 
xs:anyURI
 Items/Item/ResponseCorrectness
     
O

After the test has been scored, this value will indicate the correctness of the response. This element will be missing if the response has not yet been scored. For open ended items that are scored using a rubric, this value will also likely be missing. These items do not fall nicely into the right/wrong category.

 
values:
correct
incorrect
partial
Partially Correct
 Items/Item/ViewStatusO

This element will indicate if the item has been viewed or not by the student. Note this value can only be determined for online delivered tests. Paper tests should not use this attribute.

 
values:
yes
Student viewed the item
no
Student did not view the item
 Items/Item/AttemptStatusO

This element indicates if the student attempted the item. If a full or partial response is present then the item should be considered attempted. If the student never responded then the item was not attempted. If the item was answered and then later the answer was removed, then it is the rule of the assessment system that would determine if that was considered an attempt. For paper tests, an erasure would also be determined by the rules of the assessment system (assuming gray scanning scale capabilities).

 
values:
yes
Student attempted the item
no
Student did not attempt the item
 Items/Item/NumberOfAttempts
     
O

The number of times a student changes their answer or attempts a response. For online tests, this would represent each time an item was changed after the original (complete) response was provided and the student navigated away from the item. For paper-based tests, if erasure analysis is performed, this could represent either the number of erasures or be set to 2 if multiple responses are detected.

 
xs:unsignedInt
 Items/Item/TimeOnItemO

The length of time the student spent viewing or answering this item. Only applies for online tests. If the student viewed the item multiple times, then this would be the accumulated total time spent on the item. As much as is possible, the delivery system should remove inter-item latency or item presentation time.

 
xs:duration
 Items/Item/ItemNumberO

Identifies the sequence of the item as it was delivered to this student. For adaptive testing, this is the sequence in which the item was delivered. This should be the item sequence starting at 1 and continuing to the end of the test (spanning all sections). This should include all items such as sample items.

 
xs:token
 Items/Item/ItemNameO

Identifies the item on the assessment by name.

 
xs:token
 Items/Item/AssessmentRubricRefId
     
O

This identifies the rubric that was used to determine the score that is being recorded for this item response. This is only used for items that are scored using one or more rubrics.

 
RefIdType
 Items/Item/ItemScoreO

This is the score the student received on the specific item.

 
xs:token
 Items/Item/ItemScoreCodeO

This is the score code the student received for the specific item. Generally only applies to open ended items. Values are program specific, but example values might be 'BL = blank', 'OT = off topic', 'FL = foreign language'.

 
xs:token
 Items/Item/CommentsO

If the scoring process provides for comment codes, then this list will contain each comment code provided with the item score.
