4 Overview of New Iowa Assessments

5 New Iowa Assessments Forms E and F All new items All items written and reviewed by Iowa educators All items field tested on Iowa students All items align to the Iowa Core and the Common Core State Standards 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

6 Major Changes from Current Forms All Levels – Order of tests within the booklet; adjusted number of items – Use of color, page layouts – New configuration of composite scores Levels 5/6 to 8 – Sources of Information has been eliminated Levels 9 to 14 – Maps and Diagrams and Reference Materials have been eliminated * – Mathematics (two separately timed parts) has replaced Math Concepts and Estimation and Math Problem Solving and Data Interpretation Levels 15 to 17/18 – Spelling and Sources of Information * have been eliminated *where appropriate content has been moved to Science or Social Studies 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

19 Iowa Assessments – Forms E/F Standards-based instructional decisions Individual progress and growth for individuals Reporting group progress and growth Providing relative comparisons Providing empirical evidence that supports comparisons with NAEP, state results and international benchmarking measures Providing information that measures a continuum of achievement and tracks student progress from kindergarten to grade 12. Measuring achievement in core academic areas important for success in college including reading, language arts, mathematics and science by Iowa Testing Programs

20 Test Development Sources of Evidence Common Core State Standards Leading state standards International standards Assessment data Curriculum surveys NAEP frameworks and specifications Scholarly research in curriculum and assessment Feedback from educators, researchers, professional organizations, parents, students 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

21 Introduction to Reports

22 Reports to Support Uses of The Iowa Assessments Standards-based Interpretations Accountability Growth College Readiness Relative Comparisons 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

23 Standards-Based Interpretations Determine which standards have been mastered by the student, classroom or school Determine which standards need additional focus Compare progress among students 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

24 Accountability 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

25 Measure Growth Determine expected growth for all students Set goals for a student based on any starting place Measure student growth using vertically articulated standards 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

26 College Readiness Predict college readiness indicators Help students plan the appropriate coursework Identify students that are not “on track” 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

27 Relative Comparisons Determine student strengths with respect to the school, district, state and nation Use relative comparisons to evaluate programs, set expectations and determine interventions 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

40 Implications for AYP Reporting

41 New Iowa Assessments Implications for Determination of Proficiency Background – Due to historical trend data available prior to NCLB, the state’s workbook application requested continued flexibility of administration dates (fall, midyear or spring) – The National Percentile Rank (NPR) metric allowed for a fixed cutscore while allowing for flexibility in administration dates 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

42 New Iowa Assessments Implications for Determination of Proficiency Assumptions for new forms – Schools will continue to administer their Iowa Assessments to meet their scheduling requirements and to retain their historical trend data (fall, midyear or spring) – New forms will be linked to previous forms and the equivalent of the 41 st NPR from the 2000 norms will be identified on the Form E scale – The expectations for proficiency remain the same from Forms A/B to Forms E/F – Interpretation information will be made available to schools to transition to new forms 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

43 41 NPR = 259 Standard Score = 21 Raw Score Standard Score Scale 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

47 Summary Proficiency cutscores be reported in Standard Score metric Proficiency cutscores be available in August Cutscores will be provided for: – Grades 3-12 – Mathematics, Reading, Science – Fall, Midyear, Spring 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

54 Accommodations Determined by IEP or 504 Plan Should be consistent with state policy as defined in the annual Department of Education letter on NCLB requirements 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

55 Calculator Use Calculators may be used on the Mathematics test (Parts 1 and 2) – Use of calculators should be guided by district alignment of assessment with instruction – No separate calculator norms Calculators may not be used on the Computation test 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

56 Test Security Assurance statement for school administrators from the Iowa Department of Education Applies to test preparation and test administration practices Maintaining test security is a requirement for NCLB compliance and Title I funds 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs
