A Changing World… A growing need for a paradigm shift in the way we teach and learn… A Nation at Risk (1983) SCANS Report and America 2000 (What Work Requires of Schools) “The best time to plant a tree is twenty years ago; the second best time is today.” (Ancient Chinese Proverb) Both links work 11/18/13 NATION at RISK: see FINDINGS: Schools in US diff. grades, graduation requirements, college admissions, difficulty subject matter, amt. hw (2/3 say < 1hr/ nt. In HS) SCANS REPT: see What work requires of schools (p.18) … The educational side of work (p.19) US gr.11 stu. Puts in ½ of the 60 hrs a week that a Japanese peer devotes to schoolwork. ….

20 A (Quick) Walk through the PARCC!

21 Race to the Top Assessment Grants:
$350 million of Race-to-the-Top Fund to consortia of states to design and develop common K-12 assessment systems aligned to CCSS In September 2010, the U.S. Department of Education awarded grants to: Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) – 18 States, & DC Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Winning consortia - four years - to develop assessments systems, States participating will administer new assessments statewide by ACHIEVE was selected through a competitive bid process, by PARCC to be the Project Manager.

22 Race to the Top Assessment Grants:
New Jersey is PARCC Governing Board State: Will administer the assessment system statewide school year. Will field test assessment items spring 2014. Governing Board meets quarterly. The chief state school officer for each of the governing states sits on the PARCC Governing Board. This to make major policy, operational, design and financial decisions regarding PARCC. Executive Committee meets weekly. (Governing Board Members from 6 states) ACHIEVE won competitive bid, selected by PARCC to be the Project Manager.

23 Why New Common Assessments?
Current Assessment Systems… Too many tests, often with disconnected purposes (e.g., instructional improvement vs. accountability vs. college admissions) Not challenging enough to measure CCR Do not measure the full range of college- and career- ready knowledge and skills (such as research, analysis, critical thinking, and collaboration)

24 Why New Common Assessments?
Current Assessment Systems… Fail to generate information for educators and students quickly enough or at all Are widely inconsistent across states making results impossible to compare

25 Why New Common Assessments?
Next-Generation Common Assessment Systems will… Measure students’ mastery of Common Core State Standards Provide a common measure of college and career readiness Include a range of item types that allow for the assessment of higher-order skills

26 Why New Common Assessments?
Next-Generation Common Assessment Systems will… Leverage new technologies in assessment and reporting to get actionable student data to educators and parents in real time Mitigate challenges associated with student mobility by ensuring students will have the same expectations wherever they live

27 PARCC Assessment Consortium

28 K-2 3-8 High School ONGOING STUDENT SUPPORTS/INTERVENTIONS
K-2 formative assessment being developed, aligned to the PARCC system Timely student achievement data showing students, parents and educators whether ALL students are on-track to college and career readiness College readiness score to identify who is ready for college-level coursework Targeted interventions & supports: 12th-grade bridge courses PD for educators K-2 3-8 High School SUCCESS IN FIRST-YEAR, CREDIT-BEARING, POSTSECONDARY COURSEWORK ONGOING STUDENT SUPPORTS/INTERVENTIONS

29 Use the modeling practice to solve real world problems
What does it mean? “Students are on-track or ready for college and careers” (Math) Solve problems involving the major content for their grade level with connections to practices Solve problems involving the additional and supporting content for their grade level with connections to practices Express mathematical reasoning by constructing mathematical arguments and critiques Use the modeling practice to solve real world problems Demonstrate fluency in areas set forth in the Standards for Content in grades 3-6

31 The PARCC Commitment… PARCC is designed to promote quality instruction aligned to the CC Standards, so the assessment is worthy of preparation rather than a distraction from good work. TEACHING to the TEST may be a GOOD THING! 31

32 Understanding the Common Core State Standards …is to understand PARCC
PVRSD Math TF – Work Session 1 | November 18, 2010 32

33 Why Common Core State Standards?
"The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers," which will place American students in a position in which they can compete in a global economy. 33 33

34 Why Common Core State Standards?
Before Common Core State Standards we had standards, but rarely did we have standards-based instruction. Long lists of broad, vague statements Mysterious assessments Coverage mentality Focused on teacher behaviors – “the inputs” 34

35 Principles of the CCSS…
FEWER CLEARER HIGHER Aligned to requirements for College and Career Readiness Based on evidence Honest about time 35

36 The CCSS Difference: Grade 8 Mathematics
Before: NJCCCS (2004) Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. After: CCSS (2010) Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system. 36

37 a2 + b2 = c2 a = 4 b = 3 c = ? 5 25 a b c 3 9 4 16

38 Implications of the CCSS on WHAT and HOW to teach…
What are the Critical Shifts to Consider? 38

39 COMMON CORE SHIFTS in ASSESSMENTS
Shift 1: Focus Priority standards = focus of the assessments. Other standards deemphasized. Shift 2: Coherence Assessments will reflect the progression of content and concepts as depicted in the standards across grade levels. Shift 3: Fluency It will be assumed students possess required fluencies through grade 8; as such, students will not be allowed to use calculators in grades 3-5. Students will be allowed to use four-function calculators with a square root key or scientific calculators in grade 6 and scientific calculators in grades 7-8.

40 CC SHIFTS in ASSESSMENTS continued ….
Shift 4: Deep Understanding Each standard will be assessed from multiple perspectives, while not veering from the primary target of measurement for the standard. . Shift 5: Application Shift 6: Dual Intensity Students will be expected to know grade-level mathematical content with fluency and to know which mathematical concepts to employ to solve real-world mathematics problems.

69 READING CCSS and Mathematics

70 Not Text-Dependent in ELA Text-Dependent in ELA
In “Casey at the Bat,” Casey strikes out. Describe a time when you failed at something. In “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” Dr. King discusses nonviolent protest. Discuss, in writing, a time when you wanted to fight against something that you felt was unfair. In “The Gettysburg Address” Lincoln says the nation is dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Why is equality an important value to promote? What makes Casey’s experiences at bat humorous? What can you infer from King’s letter about the letter that he received? “The Gettysburg Address” mentions the year According to Lincoln’s speech, why is this year significant to the events described in the speech? Examples of questions that take students outside and inside the text. Text-dependent questions require students to pay attention to the text at hand and to draw evidence from that text. What does this look like in the classroom? Teachers insist that classroom experiences stay deeply connected to the text on the page and that students develop habits for making evidentiary argument both in conversation, as well as in writing to assess comprehension of a text. Students have rich and rigorous conversations and develop writing that are dependent on a common text.

71 Text-Dependent in mathematics
Use a high school EXAMPLE not grade-2 December 2, author: J. Brendel Material not to be duplicated.

72 Regular Practice with Complex Text and
its Academic Language Attendees make a list of 10 Vocab words specific to hs math 72

73 Regular Practice with Complex Text and
its Academic Language Cramer’s Rule for solving systems of equations uses determinants to solve for each variable. D is the determinant of the coefficient matrix. Dy is the determinant formed by replacing the coefficients of y in D with the constant terms. Algebra-II Sample academic language in a basic statistics task: measure of central tendency, skewed, mean, median, mode, outlier, bimodal, quartiles, box-and-whisker plot, percentile, random sample, … New to Pre-Algebra, Algebra I or II 73

74 Regular Practice with Complex Text and
its Academic Language (“Adult Language”) Example: Phone company ‘A’ charges an initiation fee plus a charge per minute. The cost of using 300 minutes (plus initiation fee) is $25 and the cost of 700 minutes (plus initiation fee) is $33. Write an equation to represent the cost. What is the initiation fee? What is the cost per minute? Is this company’s offer better than the new phone company ‘B’s? Explain or compare with charts and graphs Pre-Algebra, Algebra Or “base salary” plus “commission” – similar vocab. students rarely know 74

75 Regular Practice with Complex Text and
its Academic Language Basic constructions w/triangles using protractors, compasses or online with simulation tools: Students construct, do proofs and solve problems involving: Medians, vertex angle, balancing point, centroid Altitudes, acute triangles, obtuse triangles, right triangles, orthocenter, interior, exterior or …. Perpendicular Bisectors, concurrent lines, point of concurrency, circumcenter of a triangle Angle Bisectors, incenter, equidistant, … Geometry Teacher (mid Nov in cp Geometry) … students had hands-on construction practice w/compass & protractor … for 3 different special line segments … and they never used the terminology. Not discovery-based … followed teacher step-by-step … (The could have done wax-paper folding as informal discovery … and will do Geometer’s Sketchpad constructions following week). May have been more effective to do more w/’medians’ first and include applications and real-life problem scenarios. 75

76 Adjusting Math Language to the CCSS
Old habit to eliminate: Defining equality as “same as.” The problem: This is mathematically incorrect and leads to misconceptions. New habit to adopt: Defining equality as “same value as.” • Old habit to eliminate: “Addition makes things get bigger.” The problem: When negative numbers are introduced, the old habit has to be debugged. New habit to adopt: Addition is about combining. • Old habit to eliminate: “Subtraction makes things get smaller.” The problem: As with addition, negative numbers make this wrong. New habit to adopt: Subtraction is about difference. Kappan article re elementary mathematics and ‘habits to change.’ OTHER PROBLEMS: focus on interesting students/getting them moving/ motivated … but … improper math habits and language! Relate TV video Excellent Teaching (saw Nov. 28, 2013) … model classroom experiences … mid school … students survey time classmates spent each day (1-week) using diff. forms of technology, reading, etc. … Teacher ‘told them’ just put minutes over 60 and get decimal number … then she read decimal number as “point 45” … no discussion of estimated and comparing to ‘half,’ … no discussion of what “point 45” really meant … Students mimicked the teacher’s terminology. 76

77 Regular Practice With Complex Text and its Academic Language: Why?
Gap between complexity of college and high school texts is huge. What students can read, in terms of complexity is greatest predictor of success in college (ACT study). Too many students are reading at too low a level. 77

78 What are the Features of Complex Text?
Subtle and/or frequent transitions Multiple and/or subtle themes and purposes Density of information Unfamiliar settings, topics or events Lack of repetition, overlap or similarity in words and sentences Complex sentences 78

79 What are the Features of Complex Text? (cont.)
Uncommon vocabulary Lack of words, sentences or paragraphs that review or pull things together for the student Longer paragraphs Any text structure which is less narrative and/or mixes structures 79

83 The Common Core Standards: Classroom Video Illustration
High School School Click to link to online video … NYC Hillcrest HS Queens NY … see applications / hear CCSS HS concepts outlined …

84 The Standards are NOT new names for old ways of doing things…

85 NOT … A different topic every day
Every topic/concept treated as equally important Elementary students dipping into advanced topics at the expense of mastering fundamentals Infinitesimal advance in each grade; endless review Incoherence and illogic – bizarre associations, or lacking a thread 85 85

86 Dan Meyer: Math Class Needs a Makeover
Dan Meyer’s is a high school math teacher. I believe this video is helpful in showing WHAT this learning looks like in the classroom. He does not address content/curriculum development specifically, but I believe models high student engagement, critical thinking in authentic learning situations. He also shares how disciplines can work collaboratively.

87 From.... To…. 856 = ___ hundreds, ___ tens, ___ ones 1 hundredth = ___ tenths x2 + 10x + 21 = 0 ¾ c(c –1) = c Lack of rigor Reliance on rote learning at expense of concepts Aversion to repetitious practice Severe restriction to stereotyped problems lending themselves to mnemonics or tricks Lack of quality applied problems and real-world contexts Lack of variety in what students produce E.g., overwhelmingly only answers are produced, not arguments, diagrams, models, etc. NOT 87

88 Three (3) Significant Shifts in Mathematics:
Focus: Focus strongly where the Standards focus. Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades. Rigor: In major topics, pursue: conceptual understanding; procedural skill and fluency; and application with equal intensity. Processing the CC Math Shifts Activity Here 88

100 COHERENCE Integrative tasks draw on multiple standards to ensure students are making important connections.  The Standards are not treated as a checklist.

101 COHERENCE Need to include h.s. task(s) that incorporate multiple standards to show connections.

102 Circle all that are true. Given: All squares
Coherence and NEW multiple-choice questions. Circle all that are true.

103 *Activity 4: Work with your group (p. 15. Ex. 8)
What skills and understandings are assessed here? Do they come from only one standard? One domain? A. subtraction w/decimals B. addition then subtraction C. write % as a decimal; multiply D. read carefully, add and subtract money E. know how to find an average F. know to ÷ or x; compute accurately G. know to add lowest, then highest; understand concept, recognize > and < symbols Work in groups … give enough time and workspace

104 Coherence: Link to major topics within grades
Example: HIGH SCHOOL performance task; Algebra-I unit 1 A large truck has two fuel tanks, each with a capacity of 150 gallons. One of the tanks is half full, and the other is empty. Fuel is pumped into the tanks until both tanks are full. The pump delivers fuel at a constant rate of 5¾ gallons per minute. Write an equation for the total number of gallons of fuel …. How much fuel is in the tanks after the pump … 8 minutes? Graph the equation … on the coordinate plane … label …. Algebra-I Unit-1 104 104

105 Three (3) Significant Shifts in Mathematics:
Focus: Focus strongly where the Standards focus. Coherence: Think across grades, and link to major topics within grades. Rigor: In major topics, pursue: conceptual understanding; procedural skill and fluency; and application with equal intensity. Processing the CC Math Shifts Activity Here 105

106 RIGOR Need to include h.s. task(s) that incorporate multiple standards to show connections.

107 See the Rigor – Early Elementary Grades
Ray’s father has 129 plants in his garden. Billy’s father has 230 plants in his garden. Ray says his father has more plants because 9 is bigger than 2. Is Ray correct? Yes ___ No ___ Explain how you know. Processing the CC Math Shifts Activity Here Guess the grade level! 107

108 See the Rigor in Grade-3 Fractions on a Number Line
A major topic focus in 3rd grade is fractions. This problem causes students to truly understand fractions and not just memorize patterns.

109 See the Rigor in Middle Grades
Understanding of Fractions Write a number that is greater than and less than Hint: Find equivalent fractions for and with denominators of 40 or 100. Why wasn’t it helpful to use 20 as a denominator? (JB) Processing the CC Math Shifts Activity Here 109

110 See Rigor in Grade 6: Ratios
Ratios is one of the major topics of focus for 6th grade. This is not your typical ratio problem. Students must build upon their solid knowledge of fractions, established primarily in 3rd grade, and apply it to what they have learned about ratios. This problem not only demonstrates Shift 1, focus where the standards focus, but also Shift 2 – Coherence within and across grade levels. PARCC - Grade-6 Slider Ruler: type-I

111 ONLINE http://www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes

112 See the Rigor in High School Math

113 Linking to major topics – Grade 7
This two-part problem illustrates coherence within and across grade levels. You see major topics covered previously as well as multiple grade level concepts being connected to each other..

114 Part B Are these the types of questions we are asking in our classrooms or are we just leading our children through rote practice applying memorized algorithms with little or no conceptual understanding?

115 Linking to major topics – High School Part A
A high school example, again demonstrating coherence within and across grade bands.

116 Part B Describe Write Compare
Students must be able to apply the skills used to solve Part A to create a new example and must be able to explain. General note: Students are expected to recognize and compare functions seen within a scenario, as an algebraic equation, a table, or graph. (Relate to how do you compare fractions with different denominators … or numbers seen as decimals, percents, and fractions.)

122 Application Students can use appropriate concepts and procedures for application even when not prompted to do so. Teachers provide opportunities at all grade levels for students to apply math concepts in “real world” situations, recognizing this means different things in K-5, 6-8, and HS. Teachers in content areas outside of math, particularly science, ensure that students are using grade-level-appropriate math to make meaning of and access science content. Using mathematics in problem solving contexts is the third leg of the stool supporting the learning that is going on in the math classroom. This is the “why we learn math” piece, right? We learn it so we can apply it in situations that require mathematical knowledge. There are requirements for application all the way throughout the grades in the CCSS.  {read slide}  But again, we can’t just focus solely on application—we need also to give students opportunities to gain deep insight into the mathematical concepts they are using and also develop fluency with the procedures that will be applied in these situations. The problem-solving aspect of application is what’s at stake here—if we attempt this with a lack of conceptual knowledge and procedural fluency, the problem just becomes three times harder. At the same time, we don’t want to save all the application for the end of the learning progression. Application can be motivational and interesting, and there is a need for students at all levels to connect the mathematics they are learning to the world around them.

123 FLUENCY and new type of MC question
3rd grade PARCC Fluency Sample. Students must be able to move with ease through basic multiplication and division facts to recognize which of these equations are true.

124 Real world application – Grade 4
Relatable, real-world problems will engage students and demand they apply their conceptual understandings in new and rigorous ways.

125 HS Teachers outside of math use grade-level-appropriate math
This is a high school prototype, which asks students to connect math and science, demonstrates beautifully the application component of Shift 3. This problem has 4 parts, the last of which asks students to explain their thinking in detail and connect it to prior learning.

126 Part B In Part B of the same problem, students must move the tiles to write a recursive definition using the chart at the top.

127 Part C In Part C, students must recognize statements that are true after applying the formula.

128 Part D We must not teach students to take tests but rather prepare them to solve problems creating and explaining their own solutions. FROM Kimberley Harrington, Director of Standards, NJ Department of Education

129 Standards of Mathematical Practices
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. Model with mathematics. Use appropriate tools strategically. Attend to precision. Look for and make use of structure. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others Model with mathematics. Attend to precision 129

130 Mathematics Assessment:
Analysis of the PARCC Mathematics Assessment: Design Shifts (Activity No. 4) 130

131 Shift No. 1…Focus where Standards Focus
Advance: PARCC assessments will focus strongly where the Standards focus (70% or more on the major work in grades 3-8). Focus allows for a variety of problem types to get at concept in multiple ways. Students will have more time to master concepts at a deeper level. 131

132 Shift No. 2…Coherence across/within grades
Advance: The assessment design is informed by multi-grade progressions in the Standards and the Model Content Frameworks. Key beginnings are stressed: e.g., ratio concepts in grade 6, e.g., fluency with the multiplication table in grade 3 Become key endpoints and takeaway skills 132

133 Shift No. 2…Coherence across/within grades
Advance: Integrative tasks draw on multiple standards to ensure students are making important connections. The Standards are not treated as a checklist. 133

134 Shift No. 3…Rigor Advance: PARCC assessments will reach the rigor in the Standards through innovations in technology and item design. 134

154 Modifications Accommodations NOT permitted
Modifications involve changes in the conditions under which a student takes an assessment that result in unacceptable changes to the test itself, or what the test measures (e.g., reducing or changing expectations for students) and are therefore not permitted on PARCC assessments. Examples of modifications that will result in invalidated results on PARCC include: Requiring a student to be assessed on less content matter than other students because he has been taught less material; Reducing the scope of assessments so a student needs to complete only a limited number of problems or items;

155 Modifying the complexity of assessments to make them easier (e. g
Modifying the complexity of assessments to make them easier (e.g., deleting half of the response choices on a multiple-choice test so that a student selects from two options instead of four); Giving hints, clues, or other coaching that directs the student to correct responses on assignments and tests; Adults defining vocabulary on the test or explaining test items; Allowing the student to complete an assessment of English language arts in a language other than English; and Using dictionaries that provide definitions (rather than an acceptable word-to-word dual-language dictionary).

157 Distinguished Command
Results Types… Proficiency (PLDs) On-Track-to-College and Career Readiness (CCRDs) Growth Data Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) Performance Level Description Level 5* Distinguished Command Level 4* Strong Command Level 3 Moderate Command Level 2 Partial Command Level 1 Minimal Command *Achieved CCR Performance Threshold 157

158 What does “distinguished” (Level 5) mean?
“Students performing at this level demonstrate a distinguished command of the knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the Common Core State Standards for English language arts/literacy assessed at grade 11. They are academically well prepared to engage successfully in entry-level, credit-bearing courses in College English Composition, Literature, and technical courses requiring college-level reading and writing. Students performing at this level are exempt from having to take and pass placement tests in two- and four-year public institutions of higher education designed to determine whether they are academically prepared for such courses without need for remediation.” Acuplacer test (Typical Community College placement test) no need to be taken if student “passes” the PARCC test in h.s. 158

159 What does it mean to be CCR? (Level-4)
“Students who earn a PARCC College- and Career-Ready Determination by performing at Level 4 in mathematics and enroll in College Algebra, Introductory College Statistics, and technical courses requiring an equivalent level of mathematics have approximately a probability of earning college credit by attaining at least a grade of C or its equivalent in those courses.” 159

160 What does it mean to be CCR? (cont.)
Will be used as a benchmark against which the CCR cut score on the PARCC assessments will be validated through empirical research. WHY - a “C” is the minimum grade needed to earn credit for a course WHY - a reasonably high standard but not unattainable. WHY - similar to the criteria used by ACT, WHY - other important CCR skills will not be measured by PARCC assessments. 160

161 What are the cut scores for each level?
As/PARCC, “the vendor selected through the RFP will also work with state leaders, educators and eternal experts to determine the cut scores to establish the five PARCC Performance levels for each grade-level assessment. RFP for “Operational Assessment” Vendor proposals are due by Dec. 11, 2013.

165 PARCC Timeline… NJ Spotlight (Nov. 20, 2013)
For the first time since 1989, New Jersey will next year suspend its requirement that high school graduates pass a state test in language arts and math to receive their diplomas. (No HSPA) But that doesn't mean there will be fewer tests, just that they'll be used for different purposes. For instance, current eighth, ninth, and 10th graders will be tested in language arts and math now in three separate tests, and while passing the exams will not be required for graduation, the scores will be included in a student’s permanent transcript. ( school year) 165
