4 A Balanced Assessment System Available in North Dakota

5 Digital Library on Formative Assessment An online collection of resources aligned to the Common Core that will support K-12 teachers’ use of the formative assessment process. Assessment literacy modules Exemplar instructional modules Education resources submitted and vetted by teachers Teachers can rate materials and share their expertise with educators across the country. Accounts can be established by DPI for all educators in districts requesting access. Districts should contact Rob Bauer for account creation

6 Interim Assessments – Available in Optional assessments administered in grades 3-8 and high school For North Dakota, the Interim Assessments will likely be designed with only machine-scorable test items. At the high school level, the assessments may be administered in grades 9, 10, 11, and/or 12. Allow schools to check in on student progress and provide information to inform instruction Flexible administration options Interim Comprehensive Assessments use the same design as the summative assessments. Interim Assessment Blocks focus on smaller sets of related standards and provide more detailed information for instructional purposes. Available in North Dakota

7 The Smarter Balanced Assessment System 7 Administered in the last 12 weeks of the school year Students will receive composite scores for each subject area and the following claim-level scores: English language arts reading, writing, listening, and research; Math concepts and procedures, problem solving and modeling/data analysis, and communicating reasoning

8 Summative Assessment Testing Windows Each district will establish a schedule for the administration of the Smarter Balanced summative assessments using a testing window as defined below: Grades 3–8 Testing shall not begin until at least sixty-six percent (66%) of a school’s annual instructional days have been completed, but no sooner than March 16, Testing may continue up to and including the last day of school. Grade 11 Testing shall not begin until at least eighty percent (80%) of a school’s annual instructional days have been completed, but not sooner than March 16, A typical North Dakota high school might begin testing between April 1 and April 20, 2015, depending on the school calendar. Testing may continue up to and including the last day of school. [Note: Sixty-six percent of a school year occurs after the 120th instructional day in a 180-day year, leaving a twelve-week window for grades 3–8 testing; eighty percent of a school year occurs after the 144th instructional day in a 180-day year, leaving a seven-week window for grade eleven testing.] 8

Smarter Balanced assessments are designed as untimed tests; some students may need and should be afforded more time than shown in this table.

12 Technology Preparation DPI is partnering with EduTech to deliver webinars and face-to-face trainings on preparation for the online assessment. Training includes information on system requirements network requirements supported devices Secure browsers Contact EduTech Help desk for more information

13 Measured Progress North Dakota’s Smarter Balanced Test Vendor Measured Progress (MP) has been selected as the test vendor that has overall management and responsibility for delivery of the online assessment. MP will provide a North Dakota test portal with the Test Administration Manual, training modules for test administration, and secure access to student test records. NDSAsmarter.measuredprogress.org Test Administrators will administer the assessment through the MP portal. MP will provide a North Dakota Service Desk phone and address for support

20 20 “We are developing the DLM assessment where supporting instruction is in the very design of the assessment, not an afterthought, so that all children can meet high standards.” Neal Kingston DLM Project Director

21 All children participate in state accountability assessments. The Dynamic Learning Maps™ Alternate Assessment System (DLM™) is an instructionally relevant system that supports student learning and measures what students with significant cognitive disabilities know and can do. 21

22 DLM Assessment Design The DLM system is designed to map a student’s learning throughout the year. There are two testing phases. The Instructionally Embedded occurs in the fall, winter, and early spring. Students are assessed at least once on each Essential Element that is chosen by a teacher before instruction. Results factor into overall accountability reports. 22

23 DLM Assessment Design The Spring Testing window students are re-assessed on a subset of the previously tested Essential Elements. The system selects five testlets per content area. These also factor into overall accountability reports. 23

24 Essential Elements The Essential Elements (EEs) are specific statements of knowledge and skills that link the academic expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities to grade-level standards. The EEs specify academic targets, while the learning map clarifies how students can reach the specified standard. EEs included in the blueprint for each grade are listed in blueprint documents. 24

25 Assessment Results The DLM scoring system works differently from traditional alternate assessments. The system uses the student’s performance on instructionally embedded assessments and spring testing and compares it to the learning map to determine the student’s level of mastery on the Essential Elements. There are no raw scores, percentages, or scale scores. 25

26 Assessment Results Each student’s results will include information about performance on the assessed EEs. Score reports will be provided at the individual student level and include: Essential Element Learning Profile Performance in each conceptual area Overall performance 26

27 Test Administration Time All times noted are estimates and ranges. Total testing time varies depending on the number of EEs assessed and a student’s unique learning needs. Testlets may be taken separately across multiple testing sessions as long as they are all completed within the testing window. Instructionally Embedded Testlets: Time Per Testlet 5-10 minutes for mathematics minutes for reading minutes for writing Spring Testing: Total Testing Time minutes in ELA minutes in mathematics 27
