1 Update on STAR data Update on API and AYP status How We Prepare Our Students Questions

2  California Standards Tests (CSTs)  CST results are used for: ◦ API calculation (state) ◦ AYP determination (federal) ◦ Informing parents – STAR Report (comparable schools) ◦ Informing teachers in planning instructional program ◦ Informing CVUSD Multiple Measures  California Modified Assessment (CMA) grades 3-5

8  Course of study and sequence is driven by California standards, frameworks, and blueprints (we do it everyday!)  District common assessments (multiple measures) aligned to California Standards  Test Prep Strategies– teaching students how to “navigate” (using Test Ready materials)  Scheduling appropriately: breaks and snacks!  Remind students that the “test” is their time to “show what they know!”

9 Released CST questions:

10  Word Analysis, Fluency, and Systematic Vocabulary Development (Performance Level: Advanced) –  Which word has more than one syllable? A easily  B dreams  C freeze  D patched   Results  50% of students gave this response. (Correct Response)  12% of students gave this response.  10% of students gave this response.  28% of students gave this response.  Note: Percentages may not total 00 due to rounding.  1.3 Decoding and Word Recognition: decode two-syllable nonsense words and regular multi-syllable words.

11  Support the “show what you know” message  Extra sleep (no homework!) and hearty breakfast  Minimize absences and tardies ◦ Jan thru May is “crunch time” ◦ Best place for learners to test is in their learning environment ◦ Majority of testing is May 7-9 (T, W, Th)

12 Beyond the Bubble Test

13  Students choose the answer (60%)  Not limited to multiple choice (40%)  Newer methodology allows for more complex question types and greater depth

14

15  The student now has to look at each part separately and decide whether 2/5 can take different forms  There are 16 ways to respond to this item. Guessing the correct combination is much less likely than the traditional 4 option selected-response item  Computer adaptive: questions will vary depending upon student accuracy

18  Students will be required to justify their thinking with evidence from the text; no longer just multiple choice options  Passages will focus on non-fiction and non- fiction text features (charts, captions, etc.)
