20 Questions? Nebraska Department of Education Statewide Assessment Pat Roschewski – Edward Foy – 4/25/201519

21 The New Rubric A Closer Look 4/25/201520

22 The New Rubric Changes were made to the rubric for a number of reasons.  A revision of the Language Arts standards occurred in  An external study determined that the new standards and the writing assessment rubric did not match, necessitating a review/revision of the rubric. 4/25/201522

23 The New Rubric Changes were made to the rubric for a number of reasons.  Influence favoring analytical assessment was expressed in an effort to provide more specific data to data users.  The use of a computer based assessment reflects a “real world” application of writing. 4/25/201523

24 4/25/201524

25 The New Rubric Specific changes to the rubric include:  Domains--New combinations within the domains have been added, however the traits and the criteria within the domains remain similar.  Revised wording throughout the rubric  Consistency in wording across score points  Domains hold specific weight when scores are calculated  Number of score points changed from 10 to 4 4/25/201525

26 4/25/201526

27 Holistic vs. Analytical Scoring Holistic scoring involves one score being given that represents the overall quality of the paper against a set of criteria, i.e. the six traits and their criteria. 4/25/201527

28 4/25/201528

29 Holistic vs. Analytical Scoring Analytic scoring involves a score being given for each domain and its criteria. These individual weighted scores are combined to calculate the final score. 4/25/201529

30 4/25/201530

31 Holistic vs. Analytical Scoring Formula for each rater’s scoring: R= 100[0.35D D D D 4 -1] 3 Two readers’s scores combined will create a scale score of 0 to /25/201531

32 The New Rubric  The new rubric is available on the Assessment page of the NDE website. html 4/25/201532

33 The Process of Analytical Scoring The New Statewide Process 4/25/201532

34 The Analytical Scoring Process The Process  First read: focus on Ideas/Content and Organization--assign a score to each domain of 1, 2, 3, or 4.  Then review paper: focus on Word Choice/Voice and Sentence Fluency/Conventions-- assign a score to each domain of 1, 2, 3, or 4. 4/25/201534

35 The Analytical Scoring Process The Process  Each paper is scored by two readers.  Agreement: Exact matches or adjacent scores  A Third Read by the table leader is required for each domain if scores are not in agreement 4/25/201535

36 The Analytical Scoring Process Rules for obtaining the final score for a student after the third read: 1.If the third score is an exact match to one of the original scores, the two matching scores are used. 2.If the third score is adjacent to one of the original scores but not the other, the third score and the score adjacent to it are used. 3.If the the third score is adjacent to both scores, the third score is used twice. 4/25/201536

37 The Analytical Scoring Process Possible impact of analytical scoring:  Information: Each student report will include four sub scores and one scale score. These reports are shared with students and parents.  Trends: Over time, data from this assessment can indicate domain strength or weakness at a classroom, school, and/or district level. 4/25/201537

38 Scoring Practice 4/25/201537

39 The school board has received funds to support one current or one new activity/program. Think about a current or new activity/program you would support. It could be artistic, athletic, dramatic, educational, or social. Write an essay persuading the school board that yours is a good choice. Give specific reasons to support your recommendation. 4/25/ Prompt
