2 The Direction  Eligible Content rewritten to embrace Common Core Standards  PA Academic Standards revised to reflect the content and rigor of Common Core.  PSSA aligned to revised Eligible Content 2

3 What Common Core Says Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from text. (Common Core: Gr. 7)

4 What We Have ASSESSMENT ANCHOR R7.A.1 Understand fiction appropriate to grade level. ELIGIBLE CONTENT R7.A.1.3 Make inferences, draw conclusions, and make generalizations based on text. R7.A Make inferences and/or draw conclusions based on information from the text. R7.A Cite evidence from text

5 When It’s Revised ASSESSMENT ANCHOR R-07.A – L1.1 1Key Ideas and Details R07.A.1.1 Demonstrate understanding of key ideas an details in literature. EC: Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences, conclusions, and/or generalizations drawn from text.

12 Keystone Exam Schedule  Operational: 2012 – 2013  Algebra I  Biology  Composition  Literature  Field Test: 2012 – 2013  Civics and Government 12

13 Project Based Assessments 13 An Alternative Pathway to Proficiency

14 Project Based Assessments  Informed by Chapter 4  A new perspective on the TEST

15 Chapter 4 Students who do not score proficient or above on a Keystone Exam after having taken the test at least twice may choose to complete a project based assessment for that module based upon the requirements as detailed below.

16 Chapter 4 If a student is unable to meet the requirements in § 4.24(b)(1)(iv)(A) (relating to high school graduation requirements) after two attempts on a Keystone Exam, the student may supplement a Keystone Exam score through satisfactory completion of a project-based assessment. Points earned through satisfactory performance on one or more project modules related to the Keystone Exam module or modules on which the student did not pass shall be added to the student’s highest Keystone Exam score.

17 Project Based Assessment Overview  Created by PA educators guided by Jay McTighe  Scaffolded tasks building to the creation and submission of a Project Based Assessment  Five to seven hour time frame for completion  Project work by student completed before, during, or after school in supervised environment  PSSA accommodations apply

18 Roles in the PBA  Student  Monitor  Tutor  School Site Administrator  District Level Administrator  Intermediate Unit  Regional Review Panel

19 Review of Sample PBA  Online Delivery  Secure Site  Accessible by Defined Roles
