1 A Look at the Future of Assessments - ELA Ron Bauman · January 29, 2014

2 The Heart of PARCC’s Design (and the Standards) 1.Complexity: Regular practice with complex text and its academic language. 2.Evidence: Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text, literary and informational. 3.Knowledge: Building knowledge through content rich nonfiction.

3 Key Considerations to ELA/Literacy Assessment Quality Questions Worth Answering: Sequences of questions that draw students into deeper encounters with texts are the norm. Texts Worth Reading: The assessments use authentic texts worthy of study.

4 Key Considerations to ELA/Literacy Assessment Quality Better Standards Demand Better Questions: Custom items are being developed to the Standards. Fidelity to the Standards: Evidence statements are rooted in the language of the Standards.

5 Looking Closer 1.Model Content Framework 2. PBA and MYA 3. EOY 4. Released Sample Items 5. Prototype Items 6. Performance Level Descriptors (PLD) 7. Practice Test/Field Tests

6 Looking Closer Model Content Framework 1

7 Looking Closer Performance Based/Mid- Year Assessment (PBA/MYA) 2

8 Document Reference Refer to document: PARCC Evidence Tables PARCC Evidence Tables PBA and MYA (Blueprints and Test Specs)

9 Looking Closer End of Year Assessment (EOY) 3 End-of-Year Assessment (EOY) administered after approximately 90% of the school year. The ELA/literacy EOY will focus on reading comprehension.

10 Looking Closer Released Sample Items 4

11 Looking Closer Prototype Items 5

12 Looking Closer Prototype Items

13 Looking Closer Performance Level Descriptors (PLD) 6

14 Looking at the PLDs This row provides the sub-claim being viewed This row provides the level being described This row provides information about the patterns displayed by students in reading at this level

15 Five Performance Levels Level 5: Students performing at this level demonstrate a distinguished command of the knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the Common Core State Standards assessed at their grade level. Level 4: Strong command… Level 3: Moderate command… Level 2: Partial command… Level 1: Minimal command…

16 Claims for ELA/Literacy ELA/Literacy for Grades 3–11 “On Track” Master Claim/Reporting Category: Students are “on track” to college and career readiness in ELA/Literacy.

21 Looking Closer Field Tests/Practice Tests 7

22 PARCC Updates - Field Tests PARCC Items Field Test (Research) Computer Based Test (CBT) Pencil/Paper Test Practice Test (Accompanied by a set of scoring guidance)

23 Rubrics Draft rubrics are general and will be used as the basis for creating item-specific rubrics for each operational PARCC item. Click to see the PARCC rubrics for Grade 3, Grade 4-5, and Grades 6-11.Grade 3 Grade 4-5Grades 6-11

24 Rubrics PARCC has provided two white papers to support readiness for PARCC: The first paper provides ideas on how to use the draft rubrics during classroom instruction.first paper The second paper provides a sample of writing forms that may be used to elicit student writing on the PARCC Summative Assessments for ELA/Literacy.second paper

25 Accessibility and Accommodations PARCC's Commitment to Accessibility PARCC assessment items and tasks are being developed using principles of universal design.
