Common Core ELA /Math Testing and How it relates to Common Core The Common Core Standards have shifted which has resulted in a shift in the types of assessment questions Students need to try their best on these exams just as they would on anything else in school Testing is just one snapshot of student performance, assessment occurs daily Deeper Meaning is at the core of both assessments Students will be taking the assessments on a computer, at some point in the future
NYS Common Core Standards Shifts Impact NYS Assessments Common Core ImplementationCommon Core Assessments Balancing Informational and Literary Text Building Knowledge in the Disciplines Staircase of Complexity Text-based Answers Writing from Sources Academic Vocabulary Focus Coherence Fluency Deep Understanding Applications Dual Intensity 6 Shifts in Mathematics 1 & 2: Non-fiction Texts Authentic Texts 3: Higher Level of Text Complexity Paired Passages 4&5: Focus on command of evidence from text: rubrics and prompts 6:Academic Vocabulary 1:Intensive Focus 2:Linking Back 4, 5, 6:Mathematical Modeling 6 Shifts in ELA Literacy
Shifts in ELA/Literacy 3 Shift 1Balancing Informational & Literary Text Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. Shift 2Knowledge in the DisciplinesStudents build knowledge about the world (domains/ content areas) through TEXT rather than the teacher or activities Shift 3Staircase of ComplexityStudents read the central, grade appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are patient, create more time and space and support in the curriculum for close reading. Shift 4Text-based AnswersStudents engage in rich and rigorous evidence based conversations about text. Shift 5Writing from SourcesWriting emphasizes use of evidence from sources to inform or make an argument. Text-based Shift 6Academic VocabularyStudents constantly build the transferable vocabulary they need to access grade level complex texts. This can be done effectively by spiraling like content in increasingly complex texts.
