3 Welcome and Introductions

4 The Common Core Controversy CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.11-12.1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.11-12.2 Determine two or more central ideas of a text and analyze their development over the course of the text, including how they interact and build on one another to provide a complex analysis; provide an objective summary of the text. CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.11-12.5 Analyze and evaluate the effectiveness of the structure an author uses in his or her exposition or argument, including whether the structure makes points clear, convincing, and engaging. English Language Arts Standards » Reading: Informational Text » Grade 11-12

10 Region ___ IQ-MS Report Highlights Based on collection and analysis of data from a wide range of measures, the IQ-MS has been shown to be exerting a greater than expected impact on reform-based classroom practice in math and science classrooms of treatment schools after one year. Again, significant positive change is seen in attitudes about the effectiveness and personal command of purposeful reading techniques. Teachers appear to have gained knowledge and competency in the area of meaningful writing over the course of the school year. Finally, it is notable that at each of the visited schools, the instructional specialist was well- known and respected. Teacher frequency of use of DL strategies in the mathematics classroom was a significant, positive predictor of student achievement on the PASS 2013 assessment in math and English language arts (ELA). However, for science where the number of teachers in the analysis was smaller, there were no significant findings and less consistency in directionality of the coefficients across content areas. With the acquisition of 2013 PASS data next year, analyses are expected to be more accurate and informative. BSCS Evaluation Report (ER 2013-05) October, 2013
