2 AB 484 Status and Impacts Passed by legislature Awaiting governor’s signature Creates the Measures of Academic Performance and Progress (MAPP) to replace the Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR) program Suspends the Academic Performance Index (API) for two years Transitions to the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium tests Federal reaction uncertain (double-testing waiver) 2

3 State Assessments for 2013 – 14 Eliminates most STAR tests; tests remaining for this school year include: CST and CMA science tests at grades 5, 8, and 10 (life science) CAPA at grades 2 – 11 CSTs at grade 11 to support students’ voluntary participation in the Early Assessment Program (EAP) Standards Based Tests in Spanish as an optional assessment for English language arts and mathematics in grades 2 – 11 CST = California Standards Tests CMA = California Modified Assessment CAPA = California Alternate Performance Assessment 3

4 Smarter Balanced Testing for Participation in the Smarter Balanced field tests — scientific sample — at grades 3 – 8 and 11 California will expand participation to all schools in the state Not every student will take both the English language arts and mathematics field tests Will not receive student-level results; the field test is a “test of the test” 4

5 Smarter Balanced Testing for All students at grades 3 – 8 and 11 in both ELA and mathematics (except CAPA students) Includes computer adaptive questions (many with new question types, e.g., technology enhanced, multiple correct answers) Constructed Response and Performance Task components Will receive student-level results 2 – 3 weeks after testing Availability of Smarter Balanced interim assessments and item bank 5

7 District Assessments for We will continue to assess students and monitor progress Transitioning away from old ELA and mathematics benchmark exams aligned to old standards Keep the grades 3, 4, and 5 science benchmark exams Introducing new, Common Core-aligned interim assessments in ELA and mathematics Continue with end-of-unit or end-of-topic grade-level tests and end-of-course exams Continue other district assessments where appropriate (e.g., WRAP) and site-based assessments 7

8 Implications for SSCs and SPSAs The process and data for goal setting and data review will change during the transition Targets for old benchmark exams, CSTs, API, or safe harbor are no longer relevant Sites, in collaboration with their area superintendents, will define targets/goals based on site-level priorities and districtwide direction where provided 8
