A Balanced Assessment System

Common Core State Standards specify K-12 expectations for college and career readiness

All students leave

high school college and career ready

Teachers and schools have information and tools they need to improve teaching and learning

Interim assessments

Flexible, open, used for actionable feedback

Summative assessments Benchmarked to college and career readiness

Teacher resources for formative assessment practicesto improve instruction

Using Computer Adaptive Technology for Summative and Interim Assessments

Provides accurate measurements of student growth over time

Increased precision

Item difficulty based on student responses

Tailored for Each Student

Larger item banks mean that not all students receive the same questions

Increased Security

Fewer questions compared to fixed form tests

Shorter Test Length

Turnaround time is significantly reduced

Faster Results

Common Core State Standards

Define the knowledge and skills students need for college and career

Developed voluntarily and cooperatively by states; more than 40 states have adoptedProvide clear, consistent standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics

Slide 19

The CCSS Require Three Shifts in Mathematics

Focus: strongly where the standards focusCoherence: Think across grades and link to major topics within gradesRigor: In major topics, pursue conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with equal intensity

Slide20

Slide 20

GradeFocus Areas in Support of Rich Instruction and Expectations of Fluency and Conceptual UnderstandingK–2Addition and subtraction - concepts, skills, and problem solving and place value3–5Multiplication and division of whole numbers and fractions – concepts, skills, and problem solving6Ratios and proportional reasoning; early expressions and equations7Ratios and proportional reasoning; arithmetic of rational numbers8Linear algebra and linear functions

Shift #1: Focus

Key

Areas of Focus

in Mathematics

Slide21

Slide 21

Shift #1: FocusContent Emphases by Cluster

The Smarter Balanced Content Specifications help support focus by identifying the content emphasis by cluster. The notation [m] indicates content that is major and [a/s] indicates content that is additional or supporting.

Slide22

Slide 22

Shift #2: Coherence Think Across Grades, and Link to Major Topics Within Grades

Carefully connect the learning within and across grades so that students can build new understanding on foundations built in previous years.

Begin to count on solid conceptual understanding of core content and build on it. Each standard is not a new event, but an extension of previous learning.

Slide23

Coherence: Some Standards from Early Grades are Critical Through Grade 12

1.OA.7 Understand the meaning of the equal sign, and determine if equations involving addition and subtraction are true or false. For example, which of the following equations are true and which are false? 6 = 6, 7 = 8 – 1, 5 + 2 = 2 + 5, 4 + 1 = 5 + 2.

Slide 28

Shift #3: Rigor In Major Topics, Pursue Conceptual Understanding, Procedural Skill and Fluency, and Application

The CCSSM require a balance of:

Solid conceptual understanding

Procedural skill and fluency

Application of skills in problem solving situations

Pursuit of all three requires equal intensity in time, activities, and resources.

Key Shifts in the CCSS for English Language Arts

1.Complexity: Regular practice with complex text and its academic language 2.Evidence: Reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from text, both literary and informational 3.Knowledge: Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction

Implications for Assessment

FromToFocusing only on reading skillsAlso focusing on complexity of what students can readStudents moving quickly through a textStudents taking time to read and reread, study, and ponderAssessing literary terminologyAssessing academic vocabularyMostly assessing through SR items that do not require specific reference to textual evidenceAssessing through a range of items that require students to draw evidence from text; use CR items to require a variety of complex performancesMainly writing to de-contextualized promptsFocusing on text-based writing prompts (arguments and informative essays)Measuring ELA onlyMeasuring literacy across disciplines
