17 Let’s take a (quick) break!
18 Let’s get to work…
19 Let’s take our… (page-3) PARCC Pre-Assessment! Item 9: grade-7 level math w/new CCSS (What’s different?) ADD H.S. EXAMPLE
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 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 High School 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 ONGOING STUDENT SUPPORTS/INTERVENTIONS College readiness score to identify who is ready for college-level coursework SUCCESS IN FIRST-YEAR, CREDIT- BEARING, POSTSECONDARY COURSEWORK Targeted interventions & supports: 12 th -grade bridge courses PD for educators
29 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 What does it mean? “Students are on-track or ready for college and careers” (Math)
30 Assessment Transition Timeline 30 Assessment Transition Timeline Spring 2012 NJ ASK Aligned to NJCCCS Spring 2013 NJ ASK Aligned to the CCSS and NJCCCS (Except Gr. 6-8 Math) Spring 2014 NJ ASK Aligned to the CCSS SY Full administration of PARCC assessments “Transitional Assessments”
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!
32PVRSD Math TF – Work Session 1 | November 18, 2010 Understanding the Common Core State Standards …is to understand PARCC
33 Why Common Core State Standards? 33 "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.
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”
35 Principles of the CCSS… FEWER - CLEARER - HIGHER Aligned to requirements for College and Career Readiness Based on evidence Honest about time
36 The CCSS Difference: Grade 8 Mathematics Before: NJCCCS (2004) 1. Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem. After: CCSS (2010) 1. Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. 1. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. 1. Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.
37 a 2 + b 2 = c 2 a b c a = 4 b = 3 c = ?
38 Implications of the CCSS on WHAT and HOW to teach… What are the Critical Shifts to Consider?
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 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?

72 Regular Practice with Complex Text and its Academic Language
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
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
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
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.
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.
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
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
80 It all boils down to… Texts Worth Reading…and Questions Worth Answering!

130 Analysis of the PARCC Mathematics Assessment: Design Shifts (Activity No. 4)
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.
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
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.
134 Shift No. 3…Rigor Advance: PARCC assessments will reach the rigor in the Standards through innovations in technology and item design.

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., 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).
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.”
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 0.75 probability of earning college credit by attaining at least a grade of C or its equivalent in those courses.”
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.
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.
162 Timelines and Resources: What We Know Now!
163 PARCC Timeline… Jan – Aug 2013 Release of 2 nd set of prototype assessment and instructional tasks (spring 2013) Release of online professional learning modules (spring 2013) (update: expected June 2014) Item tryouts (spring 2013) – see next slide Full-scale pilot/field testing (spring 2014) Partnership Resource Center launches (spring 2013) Optional performance tasks for K-2 available (February 2014) College readiness tools available (spring 2014) Diagnostic assessments release (September 2014) Full operational administration of PARCC assessments (spring 2015) Setting of achievement levels, including college-ready performance levels (late spring 2015 (post-administration)
164 PARCC Timeline… *Over the next year, PARCC will develop five online training modules for teachers, school leaders, and school site testing coordinators – each with a unique purpose. PARCC will produce modules with the following foci: 1.PARCC Common Assessments Overview 2.Introduction to the PARCC Mid-Year Assessment 3.Introduction to the PARCC Diagnostic Assessment 4.Introduction to the PARCC Speaking/Listening Assessment 5.PARCC Accessibility System *It is anticipated that modules will be available in June 2014.
165 PARCC Timeline… NJ SpotlightNJ 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.
