Agenda CCR Assessment Updates Assessment Support for Educators Assessments and Beyond Accountability Updates 1
States must adopt college- and career-ready (CCR) standards CCR ELA and Math standards adopted by State Board of Education on April 28, 2014 States must administer assessments based on CCR standards by the spring of 2015 Featuring new item type: technology-enhanced (TE) items Transitioning Standards and Assessments: ESEA Flexibility Waiver/Federal Requirements
Designing the Spring 2015 ISTEP+ (Grades 3-8) Aligned to CCR ELA and Math Indiana Academic Standards ISTEP+ Part 1 March administration Applied Skills (open-ended) items ISTEP+ Part 2 April/May administration Multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items
4 Construct an answer using Math Palette
Drag-and-drop Multiple-correct response
ISTEP+(3-8) Assessment Items – General Notes English/Language Arts Spring 2015 ELA Applied Skills items are based on reading passages. Mathematics Icons will not appear on the Spring 2015 Math items, as Mathematical Process Standard 5 requires the use of appropriate tools strategically. The Spring 2015 Math assessment will include items that measure fluency as demonstrated “efficiently” and “accurately” by students. When creating an expression or equation, students must define the variable. Gridded-Response items will appear as part of the pencil-and-paper version for Part 2 in grades 4 – 8.
Designing the Spring 2015 ISTEP+ End of Course Assessments (ECAs) Spring 2015 ECAs will include two components: Graduation examination Aligned to IAS (2000 Algebra I, 2006 English 10) Accountability assessment Aligned to CCR IAS (2014 Algebra I and English 10) Watch for additional ECA updates coming later this fall!

Test Blueprints Provide “big picture” view of strands/reporting categories Assist in prioritizing curriculum Enhance instructional planning Guide development of classroom assessments
Instructional and Assessment Guidance Provides “granular” view of standards Informs curricular and instructional priorities Provides transparency regarding assessments ISTEP+ Part 1, ISTEP+ Part 2 +,, –

Acuity Assessments: Grades 3-8 English/Language Arts and Mathematics Replace Predictive and Diagnostic paths Aligned to the CCR 2014 Indiana Academic Standards 3 administrations – serve as pretest assessment Science and Social Studies Program remains unchanged
Acuity Assessments: ECAs Acuity for Algebra I and English 10 Continue Predictive forms for the ECAs Assesses Graduation Examination content NEW CCR-aligned items for use by teachers Assesses accountability assessment content
Assessment-focused Professional Development PowerPoints, recorded WebEx Sessions, and other resources are posted on the Office of Student Assessment’s website Focused on: Use of Instructional and Assessment Guidance Sample open-ended items based on new CCR standards Technology-enhanced item types
“Experience College- and Career- Ready Assessment” Tool (ISTEP+ Grades 3-8) Released on October 1, 2014 (now available on ISTEP+ website); open now through spring 2015 Technology-enhanced item types Training for students and educators Engaging and interactive (ECAs) To be released in January 2015 Teachers are encouraged to use Experience CCRA as an instructional tool in the classroom!
Transitions: IMAST Federal regulations discontinued modified assessments after – Indiana’s version: IMAST “IMAST Transition” resources/information available Refer to Office of Student Assessment webpage IMPORTANT: Provide local support necessary to students formerly participating in IMAST
. Future Assessments: Beginning in Assessment Resolution includes: Summative Assessment (Grades 3-10) Grade 10 ISTEP+ becomes new Graduation Examination Phase-out ECAs (Algebra I, English 10) High School Science Assessment based on Biology I content IREAD-3 Alternate assessments (Grades 3-10) Formative assessments (Grades K-10) College- and Career-Readiness Exam (Grade 11) Grade 11, 12 assessments (focused on college and career)

School Year School Year Accountability System 2012 Accountability A-F Accountability Growth 1 Year Projected Targets Target scale scores are compared to actual scale scores to categorize Low, Typical, or High Growth. 1 Year Projected Targets with equi-percentile concordance Target scale scores are compared to actual scale scores to categorize Low, Typical, or High Growth. (Note: Due to the assessment transition, an equi-percentile concordance will be utilized to translate the target score from the previous assessment scale to a target score on the new assessment scale. Additional validations will be implemented to ensure continuity during the transition.) Growth Availability Grade Levels Grades 4-8 AMO (Annual Measureable Objectives) 2012 Baseline2015 Baseline will be determined
Assessment and Accountability Transition School Year School Year Educator Effectiveness Growth Rating Student Growth Percentile The median SGP along with the standard error is used to generate Educator Effectiveness Growth Ratings (1-4 or 1-5). Student Growth Percentile The median SGP along with the standard error is used to generate Educator Effectiveness Growth Ratings (1-4 or 1-5). (Note: While Student Growth Percentiles are assessment neutral, results will be closely evaluated to ensure accuracy in calculation as well as fidelity in implementation of new academic standards.)
