1 ALIGNING DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE WITH THE TEKS AND THE STAAR ONLINE TRAINING 12/16/2013

2 Depth of Knowledge (DOK)  No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires assessments to “measure the depth and breadth of the state academic content standards for a given grade level”. USDE, 2003  The DOK is based on the research of Dr. Norman Webb from the University of Wisconsin’s Center for Education Research Institute. Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 2

3 DOK Alignment (Webb, Norman L. “Alignment, Depth of Knowledge, & Change.” Wisconsin Center for Education Research, Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 3 Cognitive demands of the TEKS Cognitive demands of the STAAR

4 What is the purpose of the DOK? Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 4 1 Intent and level of student demonstration required by the TEKS matches the STAAR items 2 Instruction is delivered at a level that will promote student achievement

5 Rigor and Relevance  DOK is the degree of depth and complexity of knowledge (rigor) required by the TEKS and the STAAR.  DOK level is determined by the TASK not the grade level or ability of the student. Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 5

6 Goal of DOK in Assessment DOK’s are a ceiling not a target. The STAAR includes a variety of DOK’s to ensure  Complexity and rigor  Important information about student learning is captured along an achievement continuum Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 6

7 DOK is NOT 1. The same as Bloom’s Taxonomy 2. The same as “difficulty” 3. About the use of “verbs” Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 7

8 Blooms vs. Webb Bloom’s TaxonomyWebb’s DOK 8 Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 1. Recall/Reproduction 2. Skill/Concept 3. Strategic Thinking 4. Extended Thinking 1. Knowledge 2. Comprehension 3. Application 4. Analysis 5. Synthesis/Evaluation

9 1. DOK is not the same as “Bloom’s” Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 9 Depth of thinking required to answer a question Bloom’s Depth of thinking required to complete an activity DOK

10 Webb’s Levels of Cognitive Complexity Level 1: RecallLevel 2: Skill/ConceptLevel 3: Strategic Thinking Level 4: Extended Thinking Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 10 Depth of Knowledge

11 2. DOK is not about “difficulty” “Difficulty” is a reference to how many students answer a question correctly.  How many of you know the definition of exaggerate?  How many of you know the definition of pellucid? Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 11

12 DOK Level 1 - RECALL  Receive or recite facts  Use simple skills/abilities  Oral reading that does not require analysis  Basic text comprehension  Understanding of word or phrase Examples: Identify figurative language, referencing text details Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 12

13 DOK 2 – Skills and Concepts  Basic reasoning  Comprehension and processing of text  Analysis of inference  Summarize, interpret, classify, organize, collect, compare Examples: Using context clues, predicting outcomes, summarizing events Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 13

14 DOK Level 3 – Strategic Thinking  Deep knowledge  Explain, generalize, connect ideas  Reasoning and planning  Abstract themes  Inferences across entire passage Examples: Author’s purpose, summarizing information from multiple sources Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 14

15 3. DOK is not about “using verbs” Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 15 Depth of thinking required Context in which the verb is used DOK Level

16 1 Verb – 3 Levels of Thinking “DESCRIBE” Group activity 1. Write each of the following statements on an individual post-it. 2. In your groups read and discuss each statement and assign them a DOK level of 1, 2, or Place your post-it on the appropriate DOK poster. Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 16 Describe two physical characteristics of the wolf in the Three Little Pigs. Describe what kind of house you would build to protect yourself from the wolf. Describe the differences between the three houses each pig built.

17 Webb’s Levels Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 17

18 DOK Level 4 – Extended Reasoning  H.O.T  Application of significant conceptual understanding  Rigor of task requires extended time  Complex analysis of text connections  Synthesis of information from multiple sources Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 18

19 Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 19 Applying DOK to Test Items

20 Applying DOK to Test Items – DOK 1 Which of the following uses figurative language? AOn a rainy day good coffee is like a friendship. BHer coat was wet because it was raining outside. CIt was raining heavily and water was getting into the house. DLast year, it rained day and night for a week. Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 20

21 Applying DOK to Test Items – DOK 2 When the author says “Good coffee is like friendship” he means both – Aare rich, warm, and strong Btake a long time to make Care something people enjoy Dremind people of rainy days Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 21

22 Applying DOK to Test Items – DOK 3 Based on the story, think about what makes a person a good friend and choose the simile that can be used to describe that friend. ALike a brother that is always there BAs a giant in front of a problem CLike a clown in the circus of life DAs a clock that is always on time Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 22

23 21 st Century Thinkers Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 23

24 Preparing students for 21 st Century Skills with DOK By increasing the DOK levels of activities, teachers can teach students to: Adapt to challenges Work collaboratively Solve problems on their own  Levels 3 and 4 require students to solve challenging problems in groups without the constant supervision of teachers (real-world application) Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 24

25 Review Seminar Objectives Understand the concept of Webb’s Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Identify the complexity of tasks related to each DOK level Recognize the instructional rigor we want teachers to attain and demonstrate in daily classroom instruction Aligning Depth of Knowledge with the TEKS and the STAAR 25
