SBAC Overview Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium smarterbalanced.org ◦Smarter Balanced Assessments Sample Items and Performance Tasks Claims ◦Think of these as a title of a series of books Targets ◦ Think of these as chapters in a book Think of Standards and Practices as the words in the chapter 4
ELA Assessment Claims Claim 1: Students can read closely and analytically to comprehend a range of increasingly complex literary and informational text. Claim 2: Students can produce effective and well-grounded writing for a range of purposes and audiences. Claim 3: Students can employ effective speaking and listening skills for a range of purposes and audiences. Claim 4: Students can engage in research/inquiry to investigate topics, and to analyze, integrate, and present information.
ELA Target 2 for Claim 1 Claim 1: Students can read closely and analytically to comprehend a range of increasingly complex literary and informational text. Target 2 for Claim 1 for Literary Text: 4 TH GRADE: CENTRAL IDEAS: Identify or summarize central ideas/ key events. (DOK 2). 8 TH GRADE: CENTRAL IDEAS: Summarize central ideas/key events using key details from the text (DOK 2) 11 TH GRADE: CENTRAL IDEAS: Summarize central ideas/key events using key relevant details (DOK 2)
ELA - SBAC Blueprint Grade specific 3-5, 6-8, 11
Mathematics - SBAC Blueprint Claims Concepts and Procedures Problem Solving, Modeling & Data Analysis ◦Combined because of content similarity Communicating Reasoning
Mathematics Sample Item We will use this sample item to identify how an item is built and scored
Mathematics Assessment Claims Claim 1: Concepts and Procedures ◦Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency Claim 2: Problem Solving ◦Students can solve a range of complex well-posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies Claim 3: Communicating Reasoning ◦Students can clearly and precisely construct viable arguments to support their own reasoning and to critique the reasoning of others Claim 4: Modeling and Data Analysis ◦Students can analyze complex, real-world scenarios and can construct and use mathematical models to interpret and solve problems Claims explain how the students will be tested
Common Core State Standards Standards to guide K-12 instruction for success in college and work Math Standards Practices - how Content – what SBAC – show what we know Find the Content Standard for the Mathematics Sample Item
Claim 1 Assessment Targets Elementary Targets are the Clusters ◦Priority and Supporting Grade Specific Grade Level Number of Assessment Targets
All Standards are Critical Major/Prioity work is to gain a strong foundation ◦Conceptual understanding Key concepts – teacher gives access to concepts from a number of perspectives – so it is no longer a set of mnemonics or discrete procedures ◦High degree of procedural skills and fluency Class and home time for students to practice core functions – to later apply to complex concepts/procedures ◦Ability to apply math they know to solve problems inside and outside the math classroom Apply math outside of the context – use math to make meaning Take time to look over the Targets for Claim 1 Reminder: Targets are an integration of standards
Claims 2 & 4 Assessment Targets Problem Solving Modeling and Data Analysis
Claim 3 Assessment Targets Communicating Reasoning ◦ Look over the Targets for Claims 2 & 4, and 3
