2 1% Instructional Time Effective March 2, 2014, any Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) plan submitted to the Commissioner for approval for use in the school year and thereafter must include a signed certification by the superintendent, district superintendent or chancellor attesting that no more than one percent of total instruction time in each classroom or program of the district or BOCES is spent taking any locally determined traditional standardized third party assessment or traditional standardized district, regional, or BOCES-developed assessment for APPR purposes.

4 What is a “Standardized Assessment?” Traditional standardized assessments are defined by NYSED for the purposes of this regulation as a systematic method of gathering information from objectively scored items that allow the test taker to select one or more of the given options or choices as their response. Examples include multiple-choice, true-false, and matching items. NYSED defines this term to focus specifically on those assessments that require the student (and not the examiner/assessor) to directly use a "bubble" answer sheet.

5 But it does NOT include…. Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students during instruction that provides feedback to adjust ongoing teaching and learning to improve students’ achievement of intended instructional outcomes.

6 But it does NOT include… Diagnostic assessments are evidence-gathering procedures that provide a sufficiently clear indication regarding which targeted subskills or bodies of enabling knowledge a student possesses or does not possess — thereby supplying the information needed by teachers when they decide how to most appropriately design or modify instructional activities.

7 But it does NOT include… Performance Assessments Science experiments Extended responses/essays Research papers

8 But it does NOT include… State Assessments!

9 How do I determine 1% of instructional time? Need to determine: Maximum amount of time for assessment (not including any mandated time extensions) Number of schools days x Minutes of daily instruction
