1 Mary Jenks, Principal Raifa A. Russ, Assistant Principal Briarlake Elementary Parent Presentation March 10, 2015

2 Georgia Milestones 2  Grades 3 – 8  End of Grade (EOG) in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies  Will replace CRCT and the Grade 3 and 5 Writing Assessment  It is important to remember that Georgia Milestones is primarily a criterion- referenced test, reflecting the content standards for each grade and course

3 Georgia Milestones 3 Blended: Criterion-Referenced and Norm-Referenced Georgia Milestones will provide:  criterion-referenced performance information in the form of four performance levels, depicting students’ mastery of state standards  norm-referenced performance information in the form of national percentiles, depicting how students’ achievement compares to peers nationally

4 Georgia Milestones o It is anticipated that the state/district scores will drop during this testing cycle. o Local scanning will not be continued [constructed-response items require hand scoring] o Scores will be delayed in year 1 due to technical work and standard setting o School district will determine policy for promotion in grades 3 rd, 5 th, and 8 th 4

5 Coherency – Consistency Achievement of Georgia Students in Mathematics 2013 NAEP – Grade 4: 39% at/above proficient CRCT – Grade 4:84% met/exceeded Achievement of Georgia Students in Reading 2013 NAEP – Grade 4: 34% at/above proficient CRCT – Grade 4:93% met/exceeded Achievement of Georgia Students in Science 2011 (NAEP) / 2013 (CRCT) NAEP – Grade 8: 30% at/above proficient CRCT – Grade 8:74% met/exceeded (67% in 2011)

6 Georgia Milestones 6 Paper/pencil versions will be available for the small number of students who cannot interact with computer due to their disability. Braille forms will be available. Transition to Online  Year 1: minimum of 30% online  Year 3: minimum of 80% online  Year 5: minimum of 100% online

7 Georgia Milestones Types of Test Items Selected Response o Multiple Choice Constructed Response o Generate a response as opposed to selecting a response Extended Response o More elaborate answers and explanations 7

8 Georgia Milestones 8 General Test Parameters ELA will consist of 3 sections, 1 of which will focus mainly on writing Mathematics will consist of 2 sections Science will consist of 2 sections Social Studies will consist of 2 sections

9 Administration Dates & Times April 21 – April 30, Note: These time limits do not apply to those students who have the accommodation of extended time.

10 Georgia Milestones 10 General Test Parameters: ELA Criterion-Referenced Total Number of Items: 44 / Total Number of Points: 55 Breakdown by Item Type: 40 Selected Response (worth 1 point each; 10 of which are aligned NRT ) 2 Constructed Response (2 points each) 1 Constructed Response (worth 4 points ) 1 Extended Response (worth 7 points) Norm-Referenced Total Number of Items: 20 (10 of which contribute to CR score) Embedded Field Test Total field test items: 6

11 Warning: Students who simply rewrite excerpts from the passage(s) to illustrate their point(s) will not receive favorable scores. Genres Writing prompts will be informative/explanatory or opinion/argumentative depending on the grade level. Students could encounter either genre. Writing at Every Grade – All students will encounter an extended constructed-response item allowing for narrative prose, in response to text, within first or second section of the test (contributes to the writing score). – Within section three, students will read a pair of passages and complete a series of items prior to writing their essay: o 3 selected-response items asking about the salient features of each passage and comparing/contrasting between the two passages (contributes to reading score) o 1 constructed-response item requiring linking the two passages (contributes to the reading score) o 1 writing prompt (allowing for an extended writing response) in which students must cite evidence to support their conclusions, claims, etc. (contributes to the writing score)

30 Preparing Our Students at Briarlake  Teachers are providing rigorous instruction using the CCGPS in ELA and Math, GPS in Science and Social Studies  EngageNY Mathematics is being used to increase rigor and provide mastery in constructed and extended response items.  Online testing opportunities are embedded in STAR Assessments, SLO’s and classroom activities.  Write Score Assessments provide opportunities for writing using complex text. 30

31 It’s Not Your Father’s Math Anymore!

32 History and Development  PARCC-Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers  Membership is a coalition of states  What it takes to be successful in College and Careers  Georgia was a member from  Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium

33 Developed by Great Minds  Partnership with NY State Education Dept.  Engageny/Eureka Math Written by math educators:  Nell McAnelly  Scott Baldridge

34 Foundation of the Curriculum  “A Story of Units” (PK-5)  Builds on success of the focus, coherence and rigor of Singapore Math  Writers are Singapore Math trained and lead writers are Singapore math experts  “Learning Progressions”  math domains and child development

35 Problem Solving in Learning Math Concepts  “Old way”  old-movie-clip old-movie-clip  “New way”  Construct  Examine  Justify

36 Sample problem  Forming units to solve word problems is one of the most powerful examples of the overarching theme in “A Story of Units.” Here is a sample problem that illustrates why:  A bottle holds 900 ml of water. A bucket holds 6 times as much water as a bottle. A glass holds 1/5 as much water as a bottle. How much more does the bucket hold than 4 bottles?  We can use the bottle capacity to form a unit pictorially and illustrate the other quantities with relationship to that unit:  Bottle  Bucket  Glass  The unit can then be used to answer the question about this situation, “How much more does the bucket hold than 4 bottles?”  Once the units are established and defined, the task is simply manipulating them via arithmetic. With this repetition of prior experiences, the student realizes that he has seen this before.

37 Eureka Math  Differs from traditional textbook  Overarching theme is told in a story  Defines basic building block of math-the UNIT  Not a scripted program  Exemplars of student/teacher instructional situations  Instructional adjustments  Customization of materials

38 Lesson Structure Fluency Maintenance, Preparation, & Anticipation. Application Apply math concepts in “real-world” situations Concept Development Main component Builds on prior knowledge and supports future learning Student Debrief Students articulate the focus of the lesson and the learning that has occurred.

39 Lesson Structure

40 Assessment  Mid and end-of-modules assessments  Expectation is demonstration of procedural skills, fluency and conceptual understanding  Constructed response questions  Explain thought process  Show work

41 Eureka Math is… Using real-world problems Understanding why Explaining your reasoning Doing math in your head

42 It’s not your father’s math…  Parents face the toughest challenge  Unknown models and procedures  No more memorization of formulas, shortcuts and tricks  Emphasis is on concepts behind the math operations  Multiple ways to arrive at the same answer

43 Eureka Math is not…  endless exercises without context  isolated memorization  working alone  relying on a calculator

44 DCSD Schools and Math  Brockett- Reflex Math, IXL, State Frameworks, My Math  Chestnut Charter-Eureka Math, My Math  Dunwoody-My Math, Front Row Math, Reflex Math  Globe Academy-Eureka Math, State Frameworks, Everyday Math  Laurel Ridge-State Frameworks, My Math  Oak Grove-My Math, Everyday Math  Pleasantdale-Eureka Math, State Frameworks, Inside Mathematics  Princeton-Reflex Math, Exemplars, Common Core workbooks  Briarlake- Eureka Math, State Frameworks, My Math, Exemplars, Front Row Math, Reflex Math, IXL

45 Curriculum Questions  Dekalb County has adopted the McGraw Hill My Math curriculum and provided text books to all DeKalb County schools. Is Briarlake obligated by County protocol and/or teacher contracts to use the McGraw Hill My Math curriculum?  Is Briarlake allowed to use Engage NY?  what is the message being delivered to parents/teachers on why Engage NY is being used in lieu of My Math?  What My Math text books were provided to teachers at the beginning of the school year?  Were teachers instructed to use these new books, not to use them, or to use a combination of My Math and Engage NY?  What math curriculum are other neighboring elementary schools using?  Which curriculum, Engage NY or My Math, teaches the curriculum skills and most importantly, the math terminology (i.e. number bonds), consistent with the Georgia Milestones assessment?  What training and support is provided to teachers in order to effectively teach the Engage NY math curriculum?  If a student is struggling with the Engage NY math curriculum, what resources/support is available to the students and parents  Has DeKalb County just recently provided new textbooks for English Language Arts?  What is the time frame for the improvements to the computer lab to be completed?
