5 What is the CCSS Initiative? An initiative of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) A significant and historic opportunity for states collectively to develop and adopt a core set of academic standards in Mathematics and English/Language Arts 5

6 Why is this initiative important? Provides consistency across states Allows for equal access Prepares students to compete globally Allows for more focused professional development Allows for the development of a common assessment Provides the opportunity to compare and evaluate policies that affect student achievement across states 6

7 What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)? Fewer, clearer, and higher Aligned with college and work expectations Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking and application of knowledge Internationally benchmarked Evidence and/or research-based 7

8 Instructional Delivery System At a minimum, to implement Common Core State Standards successfully, TEACHERS must: 1.Know how to plan intentionally for rigorous and deep learning experiences. 2.Know how to design and utilize formative assessment that ensures retention and the ability to apply learning. 3.Be able to create a learning environment that fosters deep thinking, engagement of students, integration of subject areas, and problem-based learning experiences. 4.Must be able to analyze and use a variety of data to drive instructional practice. 5.Must embrace continuous professional learning. 8

9 Shift from “What’s Taught” to “What Students Need to Be Able to Do” 9 To succeed in 21 st century college and careers, students need to be able to: Solve problems Manage themselves Adapt to change Analyze/conceptualize Reflect on/improve performance Communicate Work in teams Create/innovate/critique Engage in learning throughout life

10 What is not included in the CCSS? How teachers should teach All that can or should be taught Intervention strategies to support students The full range of support appropriate for English Language Learners and for students with special needs Textbooks to help with implementation 10

11 MDE Implementation Timeline 11 Grades K – 2 3 – 5 6 – 8 9 – 12 Training Follow Up Training Follow Up Summer 2011 Fall 2011 Spring 2012 Fall 2012 Spring 2013 Summer 2012 Training Follow Up Follow Up Training Follow Up Follow Up Summer 2013 Follow Up Follow Up K-12 follow-up sessions will occur around the state in late summer Proposed implementation schedule pending funding and additional PARCC resources Intended to get MS ready for CCSS and Assessment as early as possible

12 K-2 Implementation 12 The MDE will begin the implementation process with K-2 in K-2 was selected as the initial implementation grade span because: Participant feedback from overview sessions was highly favorable to begin with K kindergarten students will be the first 3 rd graders to participate in the Assessments for grades during the school year. High stakes testing does not occur at the K-2 grade levels.

13 K-2 Implementation 13 Training-of-the-Trainers sessions will be offered in three locations this summer with follow-up sessions offered across the school year. Training for grades 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 will follow the same basic pattern with improvements that are learned along the way. All grade levels will be trained by summer 2012 and will have completed follow-up activities by the summer of 2013, well before the start date of the new assessments. Implementation may be considered as a multi-year process of weaving the Common Core State Standards into the fabric of classroom instruction until the CCSS have replaced the MS Curriculum Frameworks.

14 CCSS Assessment Consortia Two Comprehensive Assessment Proposals through RttT Funding:  Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)  25 states, 31 million students K-12  SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)  31 states, 21 million students K-12 Note: 12 states are currently in both and 6 states are in neither consortium. New Consortia tests will replace current state NCLB tests in Center for K – 12 Assessment & Performance Management at ETS

15 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) 15 About PARCC PARCC is a 25-state consortium working together to develop next-generation K-12 assessments in English and math. PARCC benefits: Students, who will know if they are on track to graduate and ready for college and careers Teachers with regular results available to guide learning and instruction Parents with clear and timely information about the progress of their children States with valid results that are comparable across the 25 member states The nation as it is based on college- and career-ready, internationally- benchmarked CCSS

16 16 PARCC Timeline SY Development of assessments and related resources begins SY First year pilot/field testing and related research and data collection SY Second year pilot/field testing and related research and data collection SY Full administration of PARCC assessments SY Launch and design phase Summer 2015 Set achievement levels, including college-ready performance levels

17 PARCC – Two Types of Summative Assessments 17 FOCUSED ASSESSMENTS END OF YEAR COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT One to three tasks that assess a few “keystone” standards/topics Given at three points during the school year, near the end of quarters Results within 2 weeks to inform instruction and intervention Taken on computer, with mixed item types Scored entirely by computer for fast results Scores from both focused & end-of-year assessments will be combined for annual accountability score.
