Using PARCC Tools to Develop Assessments in Grades 6-8 A Workshop Prepared for the Rhode Island Department of Education by Monique Maynard November 2014
Goals By utilizing resources from the PARCC assessment system, participants will be prepared to review and evaluate assessment items.
Agenda Purpose PARCC Design Tools: Model Content Frameworks, Sub-Claims, and Evidence Tables (Implications for Assessment Design) Mock Item Review o Type I Items o Type II and III Items
Summative Components: Mathematics Solving multi-step problems that require reasoning and address real world situations Demonstrating understanding of concepts, fluency, and application of knowledge Performance-Based Component (PBA) End-of-Year Component (EOY) PBA and EOY Combined = Total Score
Key Advances and Fluency Expectations Model Content Frameworks
Master Claim: On-Track for college and career readiness. The degree to which a student is college and career ready (or “on- track” to being ready) in mathematics. The student solves grade-level /course-level problems in mathematics as set forth in the Standards for Mathematical Content with connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Sub-Claim A: Major Content 1 with Connections to Practices The student solves problems involving the Major Content 1 for her grade/course with connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. 36 - 47 points Sub-Claim B: Additional & Supporting Content 2 with Connections to Practices The student solves problems involving the Additional and Supporting Content 2 for her grade/course with connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. 9 - 20 points Sub-Claim C: Highlighted Practices MP.3,6 with Connections to Content 3 (expressing mathematical reasoning) The student expresses grade/course-level appropriate mathematical reasoning by constructing viable arguments, critiquing the reasoning of others, and/or attending to precision when making mathematical statements. 14 points Sub-Claim D: Highlighted Practice MP.4 with Connections to Content (modeling/application) The student solves real-world problems with a degree of difficulty appropriate to the grade/course by applying knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for the current grade/course (or for more complex problems, knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for previous grades/courses), engaging particularly in the Modeling practice, and where helpful making sense of problems and persevering to solve them (MP. 1),reasoning abstractly and quantitatively (MP. 2), using appropriate tools strategically (MP.5), looking for and making use of structure (MP.7), and/or looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning (MP.8). Total Exam : 82 points 12 points Claims Structure*: Mathematics – Grades 3 - 8 1 For the purposes of the PARCC Mathematics assessments, the Major Content in a grade/course is determined by that grade level ’ s Major Clusters as identified in the PARCC Model Content Frameworks v.3.0 for Mathematics. Note that tasks on PARCC assessments providing evidence for this claim will sometimes require the student to apply the knowledge, skills, and understandings from across several Major Clusters. 2 The Additional and Supporting Content in a grade/course is determined by that grade level ’ s Additional and Supporting Clusters as identified in the PARCC Model Content Frameworks v.3.0 for Mathematics. 3 Sub-Claim C includes only Major Content. * Updated September 2014. All points from fluency items in Grades 3 – 6 were reallocated to Sub-Claim A or Sub-Claim B.
Evidence Tables Several types of evidence statements are being used to describe what a task should be assessing, including: 1.Those using exact standards language 2.Those transparently derived from exact standards language, e.g., by splitting a content standard 3. Integrative evidence statements that express plausible direct implications of the standards without going beyond the standards to create new requirements 4. Sub-claim C & D evidence statements, which put MP.3, 4, 6 as primary with connections to content

Item Review Process Step 1. Read the item independently. Step 2. Ensure that the item meets the evidence statement (e.s.) and standard (std.). o If the item aligns, continue to Step 3. o If the item does not align, consider two options: (i) if the item can be edited to align with the indicated e.s./std., note how to do so OR (ii) align the item, as is, to a more appropriate evidence statement. o If the item cannot be aligned, reject the item. Step 3. Review the item in terms of other criteria (Guiding Questions). Make notes to reflect needs for revision.
Guiding Questions Is the task worthy of high-quality instruction? Is the task mathematically correct and free of errors? Is the task (wording and art) clear, cohesive, concise, accurate, grade-level appropriate, and free of internal clueing? For Type II and Type III tasks only, is the scoring guide/rubric clear, correct, and aligned with the expectations for performance that are expressed in the task?
Record Task Outcomes Task Number ApprovedApproved with EditsRejected. Reasoning 1 2 3 4 5
Evidence Statement Text Apply the Pythagorean Theorem in a simple planar case. Clarifications i) Tasks have “thin context” or no context. ii) Tasks require students to find one side of a right triangle in the plane, given the other two sides. iii) In 50% of tasks, the answer is a whole number and is to be given as a whole number. iv) In 50% of tasks, the answer is irrational and is to be given approximately to three decimal places. v) The testing interface can provide students with a calculation aid of the specified kind for these tasks. Item #1Course: Grade 8 Evidence Statement: 8.G.7-1 EOY Calculator Code: YES Math Practice: Additional ContentPoints: 1
Evidence Statement Text Understand the concept of a unit rate a/b associated with a ratio a:b with b≠0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship. For example, “This recipe has a ratio of 3 cups of flour to 4 cups of sugar, so there is 3/4 cup of flour for each cup of sugar.” “We paid $75 for 15 hamburgers, which is a rate of $5 per hamburger.” Clarifications i) Expectations for unit rates in this grade are limited to non- complex fractions. (See footnote, CCSS p 42.) The initial numerator and denominator should be whole numbers.
