1 PARCC Readiness What ALL Administrators - Teachers - Parents - Students Must Know...

2 What does PARCC stand for? The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers.

3 The Belief... ● Assessment should work as a tool for enhancing teaching and learning ● Fully aligned to the CCSS ● Ensure that every child is on a path to college and career readiness ● Provide parents and teachers with timely information to identify students who may be falling behind and need extra help

4 ● There are two required assessments set to deploy through PARCC for both mathematics and English Language Arts Literacy. ● What are they? Required Assessments

5 Performance Based Assessment ● Given after 75% of the school year ● Extended tasks, applications of concepts and skills ● ELA - Writing effectively when analyzing text; research simulation ● Math - Solving multi-step problems requiring abstract reasoning, precision, perseverance and strategic use of tools

6 PBA Timelines by Grade Grade 6 and 7: -ELA - March 9th, 10th and 11 th -Math - March 12th and 13 th Grade 8: -ELA - March 16th, 17th and 18th -Math (and Algebra I) - March 19th and 20 th

7 End Of Year ● Given after 90% of the school year ● Innovative, short-answer items ● ELA - Reading comprehension ● Math - Short items that address both concepts and skills

8 EOY Timelines by Grade Grade 6 and 7: -ELA – May 4 th and 5 th -Math - May 6 th and 7 th Grade 8: -ELA - May 11 th and 12 th -Math (and Algebra I) - May 13th and 14th

9 Higher Expectations for PARCC ● ELA o Read sufficiently complex texts o Write effectively o Build and present knowledge through research ● Mathematics o Reason mathematically o Solve problems: content and mathematical practice o Model real world problems o Have fluency in mathematics

12 ELA Resources/Video Links For brief video tutorials on a variety of Language Arts related technology tools on the PARCC assessment, please use the link below and then select the video you would like to view: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EcNbcVKqvuR3- QPzMfVDXjb2FUZv7sS4aukAg5IlBNQ/edit?usp=sharing

13 Preparation For Success In All Content Areas 1.Academic Vocabulary-focus on the wording and language directives of tasks 2.Analyze Questions and the Purpose-focus on the decoding of the question and what is being asked of the students 3.Transitioning to the PARCC scoring rubric 4.Regular exposure to/practice with PARCC related tasks and questions in class and at home

14 Academic Vocabulary “Research has shown that students’ understanding of just 55 ‘critical words’ contributes to 85% of success on standardized assessments that are aligned with Common Core” (Marilee Sprenger, a noted expert on child literacy and brain development (http://www.marileesprenger.com/the-critical-words.html) From Bruce D. Taylor "Most Significant Common Core Key Terms," Chicago 2014

15 What are the Key Words in the Common Core?  Compare (31)  Contrast (35)  Describe (34)  Identify (38)  Story (46)  Demonstrate (86)  Determine (89)  Explain (43)  Details (101)  Develop (116)  Narrative (29) From Bruce D. Taylor "Most Significant Common Core Key Terms," Chicago 2014

16 The most used terms in the Common Core? From Bruce D. Taylor "Most Significant Common Core Key Terms," Chicago 2014

17 What are The Key Terms on the PARCC Assessment ? What are Students Expected to do? From Bruce D. Taylor "Most Significant Common Core Key Terms," Chicago 2014

18 Suggested Skill Integration Common Core Resources Do-Nows Exit Tickets Break Times Student Groups Student developed PARCC related questions Family navigation of PARCC site, discussion with children, exposure to non-fiction text, explore PARCC Math tools
