4 Why Assess? Improve student outcomes Adjust instruction Make data-based decisions Improve student engagement 4

5 Assessment is: The process of collecting and interpreting information that informs educators, students, and families about students’ progress in attaining the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors to be learned or acquired in school (JCSEE, 2013). Illinois State Board of Education 5

7 Balanced Assessment and Student Growth All assessments can be used to show student growth –Joint committee determination –Purpose of the assessment 7

8 Balanced Assessment System A balanced assessment system is the strategic use of formative, interim, and summative measures of student performance to address immediate student needs, inform ongoing instructional changes, and guide long-term educational improvement. https://sites.google.com/a/dcsdk12.org/bas 8

9 Illinois State Board of Education The goals of a balanced assessment system are 1) to ensure that assessments are being used for their defined purpose; 2) to streamline the assessment process reducing the amount of assessment; and 3) to increase the use of appropriate assessment data. 9

10 Terminology Using common terminology is very important There are many, many assessment glossaries with multiple terms for the same concept/process 10

11 Definitions Formative assessments are designed to provide regular feedback to teachers so they can adjust instruction to improve student learning. Interim assessments are designed to identify strengths and weaknesses in curriculum and instruction. Summative assessments are designed to measure overall curriculum and program effectiveness. These assessments are standardized to allow comparison across student groups. (Wiliam, 2011; Perie, Marion, & Gong 2009; Popham, 2009) 11

12 Balanced Assessment System Summative Interim Formative Frequency of Administration Measuring Student Growth: A Collaborative Process End of Course/Year Assessments Performance-Based Assessments Portfolios Mid-Year Assessments Unit/Chapter Assessments Performance-Based Assessments Self/Peer Assessments Discussion/Observation/Checklists Adapted from Perie, Marion, & Gong (2009) 12

13 PERA Definitions Type I assessment –An assessment that measures a certain group of students in the same manner with the same potential assessment items, is scored by a non-district entity, and is widely administered beyond Illinois Type II assessment –An assessment developed or adopted and approved by the school district and used on a district-wide basis that is given by all teachers in a given grade or subject area Type III assessment –An assessment that is rigorous, aligned with the course’s curriculum, and that the evaluator and teacher determine measures student learning 13

14 Classroom Example: Literacy Formative- Running record; classroom rubric used for monitoring guided reading responses Interim- Fountas & Pinnell Benchmark Assessment System, 2 nd Edition (3x annually) Summative- PARCC and MAP® Examples listed are for purposes of illustration and are not endorsed by the ISBE 14

15 Classroom Example: English Formative assessment – Exit slips for reading comprehension skills; checklist for reading comprehension used during group discussions Interim assessment - Scholastic Reading Inventory (completed fall and spring) Summative assessment – PARCC Examples listed are for purposes of illustration and are not endorsed by the ISBE 15

16 Classroom Example: Music Formative- rubric to assess singing on pitch; classroom rubric to assess playing in rhythm; classroom listening assessment Interim- district-developed interim assessments containing performance tasks for rhythm and an evaluation tool (given 3x a year) Summative- none Examples listed are for purposes of illustration and are not endorsed by the ISBE 16

17 Assessment Use: Four Corners What is the purpose of each assessment? What data are gathered from each assessment? How are you currently using these assessment data? What data do you STILL need to determine your students’ growth? 17
