1 SAGE Update: What do we know now? Leadership Meeting October 24, 2013 Hal Sanderson & Darren Draper

2 Agenda & Objectives AgendaObjectives SAGE TimelinesParticipants will leave with a clear understanding of district and state timelines SAGE Student ViewParticipants will gain a better understanding of the key features of the testing experience for students SAGE Information for TeachersParticipants will leave with a clear understanding of test blueprints and testing time Technology for SAGEParticipants will leave with a clear understanding of SAGE technology requirements and receive good news about state technology grant. Next Steps in CommunicationParticipants will understand next steps in communicating SAGE to teachers and parents

3 General SAGE Timeline Break 2:00-2:15 End of Session 3:15 Closing Keynote 3:30-4:30

4 District SAGE Testing Window April 21 st through May 30 th Six week window

5 What will the SAGE test look like? Student View

6 SAGE Test Information See SAGE sample questions athttp://Demo.TDS.airast.org/AIRAssessment ITEM TYPESTUDENT ACTION Approximately 50% will be multiple choice Students select correct choice out of four choices Approximately 50% will be constructed-response, machine scored Student constructs the answer (drag and drop, hot spot, write an answer)

13 The SAGE test Information for Teachers

14 SAGE Test Assignment – Grade Based See Handout from the Utah State Office of Education

15 SAGE Test Assignment – Course Based

16 The SAGE test blueprints Available at

17 SAGE Mathematics Blueprint Available at

18 SAGE ELA/Literacy Blueprint Available at

19 SAGE Science Blueprint Available at

20 What is DOK listed in the blueprints? Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the core content. DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks. DOK levels grow in cognitive complexity and provide educators a lens on creating more cognitively engaging and challenging tasks. See DOK for each content area.

21 Depth of Knowledge - ELA See Handout

22 Depth of Knowledge – Math/Science See Handout

23 What are the SAGE technology requirements

24 2014 SAGE Technology CSD STANDARD. Windows, Macintosh, or Chromebook computers purchased in the last FOUR years can be utilized for SAGE. iOS Devices. Schools interested in using iPADS will need written approval from Darren Draper by April 15 th. According to the State, all IPADS must have external keyboards. Headphones are required for the SAGE ELA test. Currently the Assessment Department is planning on purchasing inexpensive earbud headphones for each student. This district plan for headphones is subject to change.

25 Do we have a State grant for more technology to help with testing time and instruction? YES! HB 2 – Computer Adaptive Testing (CAT) Funds

26 SAGE-Compatible Computer Labs We have enough grant money (H.B. 2 General Legislative Session 2013) to provide each school with one new Chromebook lab. To opt-in, schools need only to provide $1,350 for the cost of a Chromebook cart!

27 How to Opt-In To opt-in to the Chromebook lab Deal O’ the Year, please submit a journal entry: For $1,350 To 32 E By November 1 st

28 Next Steps  SAGE information brochure for teachers  SAGE information brochure for parents  Chromebook purchase  SAGE information for Students with Disabilities
