10 Planning for Scoring  Collaborative/Regional Scoring  Facilitated In-District Scoring  Scorers/Subs

11 Collaborative/Regional Scoring The Regional scoring model has teachers coming together at the scoring site, receiving scoring training and working together to grade randomized papers from each district represented in the group.

12 District Responsibilities  Package assessments according to the Nassau BOCES preparation of boxes for delivery  Deliver box/boxes of completed assessments to designated Nassau BOCES site  Provide scorers (approx.) Grades 3, per 100 papers Grade 7 – 4 per 100 papers Grade per 100 papers Grades 6, 8 – 6 per 100 papers  Pick-up box/boxes of scored papers Note: scorers must have qualified at the at the Nassau BOCES training for scoring this assessment

13 Nassau BOCES responsibilities  Randomize and derandomize papers  Notify district for pick-up of box of scored papers  Deliver scantron sheets to Nassau BOCES RIC  Provide continental breakfast and lunch each day  Provide administration of the process  Coordination of participating districts  Meet with staff of participating districts  Organization of papers  Facilitation of scoring  Trained listening/writing and reading scoring leader  Supplies  Packaging of scantrons for transport to Nassau BOCES RIC on designated day.

14 Facilitated In-District Scoring The Facilitated In-District scoring model has a scoring consultant from Nassau BOCES to facilitate the scoring process within the district, providing assistance with: scheduling, training, movement of student papers, back reads, data input and packaging of scantrons for transport to Nassau BOCES Regional Information Center.

15 District Responsibilities:  Space tables, chairs, continental breakfast, lunch  Scorers (approx.) Grades 3, per 100 papers Grade 7 – 4 per 100 papers Grade per 100 papers Grades 6, 8 – 6 per 100 papers  Table Facilitators (approx.) Grades 3, 5, per 350 papers Grades 4, 6, per 140 papers  Scoring supplies  Clerical support to randomize/derandomize papers  2 trained scorer leaders (trained at Nassau BOCES training sessions

16 Nassau BOCES responsibilities  Assistance with scheduling and coordination  scoring training/questions  Movement of student papers  Back reads by facilitator  Administration of the scoring process  Packaging of scantrons for transport to Nassau BOCES RIC

17 Cost  Collaborative/Regional Scoring (minimum number of papers from participating districts 3,000) ($ for each unfilled scorer position) $3.50 per paper for Grades 4, 6, and 8 $3.10 per paper for Grades 3, 5, and 7  Facilitated In-District Scoring $1,  1 facilitator for 1 ½ days

18  Certified Teachers  Retirees  Specials Planning for Scorer/Subs

19 ELA  Grades 3, 4, 5 Common Branch Certified Teachers  Reading Teachers  Special Education Teachers  Certified Retirees  Grades 6, 7, 8 ELA Certified Teachers  Reading Teachers  Social Studies Teachers  Special Education Teachers  Certified Retirees

20 MATH  Grades 3, 4, 5 Common Branch Certified Teachers - one grade level below and above for each test  Grades 6, 7, 8 Math Certified Teachers  One grade level below and above for each test  Math Certified Retirees

21 Consistency Assurance Sets (CAS) Certification  ELA  Grades 3, 4, 5 (training begins on January 20)  Grades 6, 7, 8 (training begins on January 27)  Math  Grades 3, 4, 5 (training begins on March 17)  Grades 6, 7, 8 (training begins on March 24)
