2 2 VisionDevelopmentAction Transitioning to Action

3 3 Meaningful Goals for NC Students Common Core English Language Arts Mathematics Science Social Studies World Languages Arts Education Instructional and Technology Skills Healthful Living Guidance Occupational Course of Study English Language Development Career and Technical Education Essential Standards New Standard Course of Study International-benchmarked When achieved, ensure students are ready for post- secondary education

4 4 Equity Students expectations the same regardless of where they live College and Career Readiness Students need to be more than proficient Comparability State results will be comparable through common assessments Sharing of Resources The ability to share instructional materials across state lines can improve practice Economies of Scale Possible savings due to sharing of resources and assessments Student Mobility Students moving into and out of states will have the same standards Why the Common Core?

5 5 Principals: What will you look for in classrooms next fall because of the Common Core State Standards? Teachers: What will you do differently next fall because of the Common Core State Standards? Common Core

6 6 Three Shifts in Mathematics Shift 1 Shift 2 Shift 3 Focus strongly where the standards focus Coherence think across grades, and link to major topics within grades Rigor require conceptual understanding procedural skill and fluency, and application with intensity

7 7 Three Shifts in Literacy Shift 1 Shift 2 Shift 3 Informational and nonfiction Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational texts Evidence Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text Complex Texts Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary

8 Summative Assessments English Language Arts o Common Core State Standards (June 2010, SBE) o Grades 3-8 and English II EOC Mathematics o Common Core State Standards (June 2010, SBE) o Grades 3-8 and Algebra I/Integrated I EOC Science (February 2009, SBE) o Essential Standards o Grades 5, 8 and Biology EOC 8

9 Item Types Mathematics: gridded response items o Grades 5-8 and Math I (Algebra I/Integrated I) Calculator Inactive: Grades 3-8 and Math I (Algebra I/Integrated I) o One-third to one-half of grades 3-8 o One-third of Math I (Algebra I/Integrated I) English II: short constructed response and multiple choice 9

10 Assessment Formats Prefer Online Administration but a Paper/Pencil version is available o All NCEXTEND2 (EOG and EOC) o Science Grades 5 and 8 o English II EOC o Biology EOC o Algebra I/Integrated I EOC Prefer Paper/Pencil Administration but an Online version is available o General English Language Arts o General Mathematics Grades

14 14 29 states representing 48% of K-12 students 21 governing, 8 advisory states Washington state is fiscal agent

15 15 Turnaround in weeks compared to months today Faster results Fewer questions compared to fixed form tests Shorter test length Provides accurate measurements of student growth over time Increased precision Item difficulty based on student responses Tailored to student ability Larger item banks mean that not all students receive the same questions Greater security

16 High School Indicators Elementary and Middle School Indicators End of Course Assessments % of students proficient on Math I, Biology and English II assessments ACT College Readiness Benchmarks % of students who score well enough to have a 75% chance of getting a C or higher in their first credit-bearing college course Graduation Rates 4-year: % of students who were freshmen in who graduated in year: % of students who were freshmen in who graduated by Future-Ready Core Completion % of graduates who take and pass higher-level math classes WorkKeys % of graduates achieving the Silver level on the three WorkKeys assessments Graduation Project Schools that complete the Graduation Project achieving the standards of quality established in the process End of Grade Assessments % of students proficient on 3-8 Mathematics assessments % of students proficient on 3-8 English Language Arts assessments % of students proficient on 5 th and 8 th grade Science assessments 16

18 REPORTING We want a hallmark of the new accountability model to be performance and growth data that is easy to understand useful, and easy to access 18 October 2008’s Response to the Framework for Change focused on Transparency

19 REPORTING Some specific design features we are considering o Reporting both absolute performance in a given year as well as growth over time on all indicators o A clean front interface that starts only with the indicators o Scaffolding that helps the user understand the actual meaning of the data (the use of “hover-over” or “click-into” web design so that users can get the facts on what each indicator is) o Inclusion of State (and District) Results on each report; additionally, the inclusion of targets (either state or federal) o Intuitive navigation on the website that makes it obvious how to get to school performance data 19

20 Sample High School Click For Info End of Course Assessments 74% Click For Info ACT College Readiness Benchmarks 46% Click For Info Graduation Rates 4-year 76% 5-year 77% Click For Info Future-Ready Core 89% Click For Info WorkKeys Achievement 78% Click For Info Graduation Project YES % of students proficient on Math I, Biology and English II assessments (the performance composite) For discussion purposes only. Data are not actual data from a school or the state. 20

21 REPORTING End of Course Assessments % of students proficient on Math I, Biology and English II assessments 74% State-wide result in For discussion purposes only. Data are not actual data from a school or the state. Example We plan to include the state-wide result on each of the 6 indicators so that the user can immediately see where the school is relative to others Data tools might additionally allow for a user to see where this school is relative to similar schools 65% Additionally, we are determining how to represent the new Annual Measurable Objectives (part of our ESEA Flexibility Request) 21
