7 A System of Assessments

8 October 20, 2014 | Slide 8 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Smarter Balanced Sustainability  The Smarter Balanced grant is coming to an end  4 years of development – remarkable accomplishments  Now housed at UCLA  Member states pay UCLA to use assessments  Joe Willhoft is retiring as of Dec 31; Tony Alpert has been named executive director  Each state implements on their own, with common protocols  Most states, including Washington, need a vendor to assist with implementation

9 October 20, 2014 | Slide 9 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION New Smarter Balanced Vendor to Support Our State’s Implementation  Multi-Agency Assessment Cooperative (MAAC)  Washington, Hawaii, Idaho, South Dakota, US Virgin Islands, West Virginia partnered on an RFP  Smarter Balanced assessments (common to all) and state specific (Science MSP and EOC, new state exit exams)  Contract awarded to our new service provider  American Institutes for Research (AIR)  Kick off meeting held last week ( )  Current vendors assisting through fall/winter

12 Digital Library Educator resources for formative assessment practices to improve instruction 12 October 20, 2014

13 October 20, 2014 | Slide 13 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Digital Library  Access  District Assessment Coordinators (DACs), or their designees, should enroll instructional and support staff who work directly with students in their districts.  Functionality  The Digital Library offers professional learning resources and instructional materials—like lesson plans, units, and learning modules—for educators to use daily with students and staff. Resources span K-12 and are aligned to Washington State Learning Standards for English language arts and mathematics. Resources are also aligned to formative assessment practices.

14 October 10, 2014 Slide 14 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Digital Library  How to Add Users (Demonstration of what ought to happen)  Known issues and solutions/recommendations

15 October 10, 2014 Slide 15 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Digital Library  Known Bugs:  addresses cannot have apostrophes  addresses are case-sensitive  It’s possible create two accounts that only differ in case of addresses.  We recommend creating all accounts using lower case; if it’s too late for that, the correct case can be found in the original upload file, by searching in ART* or in the welcome *  Coordinators sometimes see users from other states  But cannot edit or change them  Export only includes users listed on the current screen  This is causing problems with OSPI’s effort’s to support password resets  Estimate is 2-3 weeks for these issues

16 October 10, 2014 Slide 16 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Digital Library  The Big Problems (and what we’re doing to fix them)  If user has a state and district role, District Coordinators cannot see the records in ART  Short Term Solution: contact OSPI to remove STATE records  Long Term Solution: working with Smarter to get the complete list of WA’s users and removing all STATE level records (may disrupt some users)  User never logged in during preview and doesn’t have temp  Short Term Solution: School or District Coordinator can reset one- by-one (unreasonable in most districts)  Long Term Solution #1: OSPI resets every password in the state  Long Term Solution #2: allow all users to use ‘forgot password’ even if they don’t have a security question for a limited time period

17 October 10, 2014 Slide 17 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Digital Library  Big Problems (continued)  s not coming through  (NOTE: s only created during initial account creation)  Whitelist BEFORE uploading lists to  Check school/district level spam/junk/quarantine folders to see if the s hit the server or not to isolate if the issue is local or remote  Issue seems to be consistently district wide (suggests local issue, but working to confirm)  OSPI working on providing dedicated staff for firewall issues, but can provide additional sender info to help configure firewalls (“Tier 2 Support”). Password issues should be resolved by early next week; triage on a case-by-case basis

18 Digital Library Basics The Digital Library is accessed through a single sign-on with user permission levels so educators have access to all of the instructional and professional learning resources for each grade (Grades K-12). There are resources that educators can share or use with students and families, but students and families will not be able to access materials directly. All resources will have the formative assessment process embedded within them. But the Digital Library WILL NOT be a “bank” of formative assessment items alone. All submitted materials will be vetted through a Quality Criteria Review Process by reviewers across the nation. Each resource reviewed and rated by at least 3 trained educators If resources do not meet the quality criteria, they are not included in the library Page 18

19 Resources in the Digital Library * Resources include the following file types: Video, HTML5, Audio, PPT, Excel, Word, and PDF. Commissioned professional development modules Resources for students and families Frame formative assessment within a balanced assessment system Articulate the formative assessment process Highlight formative assessment practices and tools Commissioned professional development modules Instructional materials for educators Instructional materials for students High-quality vetted instructional resources and tools for educators High-quality vetted resources and tools for students and families Reflect and support the formative process Reflect and support the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts Create Professional Learning Communities Assessment Literacy Modules Exemplar Instructional Modules Educational Resources Page 19 Demonstrate/support effective implementation of the formative process Focus on key content and practice from the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts

20 Digital Library Functionality Enables State Networks of Educators and State Leadership Teams to submit, review, and publish resources Allows educators to view, download, and rate resources Uses state-of-the-art tagging and search to quickly find resources by CCSS and other topics Enables educators from across the Consortium to collaborate and share their knowledge Facilitates access to resources that are stored in participating libraries Illustrative Slide 20

48 October 20, 2014 | Slide 48 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Summative Assessments – Paper/Pencil  Smarter Balanced 3–8 and 11 paper/pencil tests will cost $6.00 per test per content area ($12.00 per student if using paper for both ELA and Math).  Additional costs do not apply to MSP science Grades 5 and 8, HSPEs, Off Grade Level tests, EOCs, or Grade 10 ELA.  Selection of paper/pencil is at a school by grade by content area (e.g., a school use online except for 5 th grade math).  Print-on-demand tests required for visually impaired students (documented on the Individualized Education Program), are available through the Smarter Balanced testing engine at no cost to districts.

49 October 20, 2014 | Slide 49 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION Summative Assessments – Paper/Pencil  Paper/pencil tests are fixed forms – not computer adaptive. This means students will likely take longer to complete paper/pencil tests than online tests.  The online test engine for Smarter Balanced incorporates a multitude of embedded usability, accessibility, and accommodations – districts will need to provide those accommodations or have individual students who need accommodations test online.  Scoring paper/pencil tests will take longer than scoring online tests. Shipping paper/pencil tests back to the scoring vendor will necessitate a shorter testing window to minimize the delay in scoring and reporting.

63 October 20, 2014 | Slide 63 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION ELA Exit Exam  Legislation calls for OSPI to develop a comprehensive ELA exit exam for 10 th graders to use to fulfill assessment graduation requirement, using Smarter Balanced items  Limited items available to states would necessitate paper/pencil format  Paper/pencil precludes CAT  Test map would be same as 11 th grade test  Items would be the same as 11 th grade test  Why not just use “11 th grade” test?

64 October 20, 2014 | Slide 64 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION ELA Exit Exam – News!  Wa’s ELA Exit Exam will use the same test engine and item bank as HS Smarter Balanced ELA test (used in 11 th grade for school and district accountability)  In other words, the Smarter Balanced ELA test will be taken by 11 th graders for accountability but should be available to10 th graders for graduation purposes (to allow time for remediation and retakes)  An Exit Exam cut score will be set by the State Board for graduation purposes based on 10 th graders’ performance  The College & Career Ready cut score set by the consortium will be used for accountability (11 th graders)

65 October 20, 2014 | Slide 65 OFFICE OF SUPERINTENDENT OF PUBLIC INSTRUCTION ELA Exit Exam – more detail  Wa’s ELA Exit Exam will now be available online – administration within last 12 weeks of school (but no later than June 15). Previously expected to be paper/pencil only.  Fixed form paper/pencil can be used (at no cost) – administration May 12–14 OR May 19–21.  Only online test will be Computer Adaptive.  If a student meets or exceeds the College and Career Ready cut score in 10 th grade, we will bank their score so they won’t need to be tested in 11 th grade.
