18Switch to file for entry slip First find a location to save the blank file to your computer. Save so that you will not have to depend on using the internet each time you need the form.Type beginning at the top of the page, student name, date of beginning of task, name who develops the portfolio.Then click on the grade level box and select the correct grade. Do no forget this each time because it automatically reverts to grade 3.Click on the Content Standard and entry. The CS description will appear in the box below. Click in the box below CS # to populate the box with the correct CS descriptionClick on the SLE#, then click in the box below to populate the box with correct SLE descriptionClick on the Level of Assistance-remember to check this according to the way you have completed the Student Profile page. Never means not having to go beyond what is required based on the disability of the student that has been described.Go to the next page-Task Sheet. This page was developed as is for a couple of reasons, 1. Many have asked for more room to explain the task and how the student responds to the task. 2. There was not enough room on the original entry slip with the addition of Science to keep it all to one page. 3. You now have a box to describe the task given to the student in more detail and a box to explain how the student accesses this curriculum. Explain what the scorer is supposed to be observing in order to see if the student did exactly what the teacher requested in the task. Also, you have a place to list the type of evidence and a line to list the setting of the task.Follow the directions carefully so that you will always have the correct information on these 2 sheets.You must complete a task sheet with each entry slip.

38Suggested Timeline for Collecting Evidence A suggested timeline has been developed to guide teachers through the process of compiling portfolios for students participating in the Arkansas Alternate Portfolio Assessment.The purpose of the timeline is to assist teachers in dividing the necessary steps into chronologically manageable sections.
39Suggested Timeline for Collecting Evidence The Timeline has been sub-dividedinto 4 phases.Planning PhaseCollection PhaseOrganizational PhaseSubmission Phase
41Planning Sheets and Instructions Create a preliminary plan using the Planning Sheet for each content area to map out the Standards and SLE’s appropriate for your student’s assessment.Think about instructional tasks that will allow the student to demonstrate knowledge and achievement related to the standard.Identify the type of evidence that will best show what the student knows.Allow for generalization of skills in other settings and with various individuals.
46Evidence RemindersA chart has been developed to help teachers to ensure that all evidence included in the portfolio is appropriate and has been clearly documented with all necessary information.Reminds teachers to be certain that all tasks represented by the evidence are aligned to the Standard and SLE being assessedStresses the requirement that at least two different types of evidence need to be included for each entry
48Series of Captioned Photographs TWO TYPES EVIDENCEGeometry G.8.5.2Identify and draw congruent, adjacent, obtuse, acute, right, and straight angles.This is an example of incorporating 2 different types of evidence within the 3 pieces of evidence needed for the entry.First, pictures show the student creating angles by cutting line segments, sliding one paper plate into the other and moving the plates to create different angles.Series of Captioned Photographs
49The second piece of evidence is a work sample The second piece of evidence is a work sample. The student identified different angles.Work Sample
50For the third piece of evidence, the student went around the school and took pictures of angles. He then created an angle book, which is a permanent product.
52Verification of Evidence Page 39This is a great tool to make sure that you have included all entries and evidence before you submit the portfolio to your School Test Coordinator.
53Scoring Rubric page 46 and 47 Domain DefinitionsPerformance: student’s demonstration of skill while attempting a given task.Context: the degree to which the tasks are age appropriate and allow the student to use age-appropriate materials, provide a realistic challenge for the student, and reflect meaningful, real-world activities.Level of Assistance: the degree of independence demonstrated in the student’s performance.Settings: the observed settings or environments in which the tasks are performed (for grades 3-8 and 11 only).Refer to page 45 in the Administration Manual for the scoring rubric.Please note that to be eligible for a “4” in performance. 3 pieces of evidence must be included in the entry. This does not guarantee a “4.” The quality of the student work will determine that.If there are only 2 pieces of evidence submitted, the highest score that can be achieved is a “3” – again, this does not guarantee a score of “3.”The highest score an entry can achieve with only 1 piece of evidence is a “2.”Remember that the initial directions are not considered prompting. The critical part here is how much prompting the student needs to be successful. If the student required prompting at the beginning of instruction, but he doesn’t require any by the time he has mastered the skill, make that notation on the evidence. We will score what is on the entry slip and look to the evidence for verification.
56Scoring ProceduresRangefinding: A committee of Arkansas educators is convened in the spring to review current portfolio entries and to reach consensus on their scores. The scored entries are used to create a scoring guide and training and qualifying sets used in reader training.Reader Training: The readers receive intensive training and must qualify before they may begin scoring portfolios. Readers who do not qualify are not allowed to work on this project.We had approximately 60 readers scoring the portfolios this year.
57Scoring ProceduresAll entries are scored twice. If scores given by 2 readers are nonadjacent, those entries are scored a third time.We have designated readers to assign nonscoreable codes. Entries are flagged that appear to be nonscoreable. It is the responsibility of the designated readers to determine if the entry is nonscoreable.
60Portfolio Organization The portfolio consists of 1 entry for each Algebra I standard and 1 entry for each Geometry standard.Organize the portfolio using the illustration on pages 10 and 11 in the Administration Manual for Ninth-Grade Mathematics.
61Organization of Portfolio Pages 10- 11 Organizational chart for grade 9 – page 11
62Curriculum Frameworks for 9th grade Math Portfolio Must use the Framework documents for Algebra and GeometryMust use these 2 documents for Content Standard and SLE’s

76Tips for Teachers page 14-15 How to avoid nonscoreable entriesStrategies for collecting evidence
77Strategies to Collect Evidence Student work samples are the appropriate type of evidence for the majority of the grade 9 students assessed (resource math students).The same types of entries that are appropriate for students in grades 3-8 and 11 may be appropriate for your grade 9 student.Think of the best way to show what your student knows.Include the student’s best work.Provide appropriate tasks that present a realistic challenge for the student.
78Avoid Nonscoreable Entries Be sure to include 1 entry for each Algebra I Content Standard and 1 entry for each Geometry Content Standard – 10 entries total.Use an SLE only one time.Make sure that the tasks support the selected SLE.Make sure that the evidence you include in the entry shows what you have stated in the task.
79Strategies to Collect Evidence Include 3 pieces of evidence for each entry.Do not include the same worksheet completed on different days.Use only 1 entry slip for the 3 tasks – not a separate entry slip for each task in the entry.
80Avoid Nonscoreable Entries Use the forms in the black binders or use the electronic forms on the ADE website.Complete the entry slips correctly.
81Avoid Nonscoreable Entries Use the Algebra I and Geometry frameworks that are in the Administration Manual. Write the entire number and description and make sure they match.Content Standard 1: Students will develop the language of geometry including specialized vocabulary, reasoning, and application of theorems, properties, and postulates.LG.1.G.2 Represent points, lines, and planes pictorially with proper identification, as well as basic concepts derived from these undefined terms, such as segments, rays, and angles
82Appendix A – Scoring Rubric Domain Definitions-Performance: student’s demonstration of skill while attempting a given task.-Context: the degree to which the tasks are age appropriate and allow the student to use age-appropriate materials, provide a realistic challenge for the student, and reflect meaningful, real-world activities.-Level of Assistance: the degree of independence demonstrated in the student’s performance.Refer to page 39 in the Administration Manual for the scoring rubric. The only difference between this rubric and the rubric for grades 3-8 and 11 is that the grade 9 students do not receive a score for settings.Please note that to be eligible for a “4” in performance. 3 pieces of evidence must be included in the entry. This does not guarantee a “4.” The quality of the student work will determine that.If there are only 2 pieces of evidence submitted, the highest score that can be achieved is a “3” – again, this does not guarantee a score of “3.”The highest score an entry can achieve with only 1 piece of evidence is a “2.”
83Appendix A – Sample Entry Geometry – Relationships Between Two- and Three-DimensionsContent Standard 4: Students will analyze characteristics and properties of 2- and 3- dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.SLE R.4.G.2: Solve problems using properties of polygons: *sum of the measures of the interior angles of a polygon *interior and exterior angle measure of a regular polygon or irregular polygon *number of sides or angels of a polygonIf you are using an activity that deals with angle measurement use this SLE not T.2.G.2 Investigate the measures of segments to determine the existence of triangles. This would be nonscoreable because angle measurement and line segment measurement are not the same task.
