Assessment Update Ms. Danielle Shockey, Deputy Superintendent Dr. Michele Walker, Director of Student Assessment Ms. Sholonda Trice, Assistant Director of Student Assessment November 2014
Agenda CCR Standards & Assessments Support for Educators Transitions: IMAST, Graduation Exam and Beyond 2
States must adopt college- and career-ready (CCR) standards CCR ELA and Math standards adopted by State Board of Education on April 28, 2014 States must administer assessments based on CCR standards by the spring of 2015 Featuring new item type: technology-enhanced (TE) items Transitioning Standards and Assessments: ESEA Flexibility Waiver/Federal Requirements
Designing the Spring 2015 ISTEP+ (Grades 3-8) ISTEP+ Part 1 March Administration – Applied Skills Items (Online voluntary) Paper/Pencil Testing Window: March , 2015 Online Testing Window: March , 2015 ISTEP+ Part 2 April/May Administration (Online required) Paper/Pencil Testing Window (Requires Pre-Approval): April 27 – May 8, 2015 Multiple-Choice and Gridded-Response Items Online Testing Window: April 27 – May 15, 2015 Multiple-Choice and Technology-Enhanced Items
ISTEP+ Assessment Notes – Part 1 (Grades 3-8) English/Language Arts Writing Prompts Read one or more passages Respond to 4 multiple-choice questions (scaffold to the prompt) Provide evidence from the passage(s) when responding to the prompt Mathematics Icons – Not displayed on the assessment Mathematical Process Standard 5 Use appropriate tools strategically
ISTEP+ Assessment Notes – Part 2 (Grades 3-8) Mathematics, continued Reference Sheets – Grades 4-8 Separate sheet by grade level Fluency items Measure fluency as demonstrated “efficiently” and “accurately” Define the variable When creating an expression or equation Gridded-Response items – Grades 4-8 During ISTEP+ Part 2 paper-and-pencil administration ONLY
7 Construct an answer using Math Palette
Drag-and-drop Multiple-correct response
Designing the Spring 2015 ISTEP+ End of Course Assessments (ECAs) Spring 2015 ECAs will include two components: Graduation examination Aligned to IAS (2000 Algebra I, 2006 English 10) Accountability assessment Aligned to CCR IAS (2014 Algebra I and English 10) Grade 10 students participating in the ECAs

Acuity Assessments (Gr. 3-8: September; ECAs-Accountability: January) NEW Acuity Readiness Assessments Grades 3-8, ELA and Math Aligned to the CCR 2014 Indiana Academic Standards 3 administrations/diagnostic in nature (Science, Social Studies remain unchanged) Acuity for Algebra I and English 10 Continue Predictive forms for the ECAs NEW CCR-aligned items for use by teachers
Assessment Professional Development (Gr. 3-8: October; ECAs-Accountability: January) Grades 3-8: Recorded WebEx sessions Focused on: Use of Instructional and Assessment Guidance Sample open-ended items based on new CCR standards Technology-enhanced item types Watch for professional development related to CCR standards on the ECAs.
Item Samplers (Gr. 3-8: October) Updated for Sample open-ended items based on new CCR standards Examples of ISTEP+ Part 1 administration English/Language Arts Items: writing prompts, constructed-response, extended-response Focus on evidence Mathematics Items: constructed-response, extended-response Focus on content and process

. Spring 2015 ACCUPLACER Testing Window Part 1: January 22 – February 20, 2015 Administer to juniors who meet State Board-adopted criteria during Part 1 Part 2: February 25 – April 1, 2015 Participation Criteria PSAT score Performance on ECAs Updated guidance coming soon Includes details re: Dual-Credit, Financial Aid, and more!
. Transition: Spring 2015 ECAs Spring 2015 ECA Administration: Graduation Examination and Accountability Assessment Implementation Grade(s) End of Course Assessment (1 test with 2 components) Accountability Assessment Notes Graduation Examination (IAS 2000 Algebra I, 2006 English 10) Accountability Assessment (CCR IAS 2014 Algebra I, English 10) (Accountability Assessment component will likely consist of 1-2 extra test sessions.) Grade 10 Required (testers/retesters) Required (testers/retesters) Accountability calculations for Grade 10 students testing in spring 2015 are based on new CCR standards. Grades 9, 11, 12 Required (testers/retesters) Optional—Local Decision Feedback regarding new CCR standards may be helpful for remediation and other purposes. (NOT included in accountability calculations) Adults Required (testers/retesters) Not Applicable Adults are not included in school accountability. Watch for more ECA-related guidance coming soon!
. Transition: IMAST Federal regulations discontinued modified assessments after Indiana’s version: IMAST Sunset after Spring 2014 administration “IMAST Transition” resources/information available Refer to Office of Student Assessment webpage IMPORTANT: Provide local support necessary to students formerly participating in IMAST Provide support for parents, too!
. Future Assessments: Beginning in Assessment Resolution passed by Education Roundtable and State Board of Education includes 7 Components: 1.Summative Assessment (Grades 3-10) Grade 10 ISTEP+ becomes new Graduation Examination High School Science Assessment based on Biology I 2.IREAD-3 3.Phase-out Algebra I, English 10 ECAs (Graduation Examination) 4.Grade 11, 12 Post-Secondary Assessments 5.College- and Career-Readiness Exam (Grade 11) 6.Formative Assessments (Grades K-10; ELA, Math, SCI, SS) 7.Alternate Assessment (Grades 3-10)
