Sterling High School PARCC Information

2
●Academic Standards ○No standards/district created standards > 1996 NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards > 2010 Common Core (National) State Standards (CCSS) ●CCSS ○Aligned to college and career expectations ○Internationally benchmarked so that all students are prepared to succeed in our global world ○Coherent and focused towards achievement ○Include rigorous content and application of knowledge through use of higher-order skills History of Academic Standards

3
●Federal Regulations require states to assess students’ progress towards standards ●State regulations require districts to administer standardized assessments ●District funding is contingent on at least 95% student participation Standards are not new, standardized assessments are not new, the only change is PARCC! History of State Assessments

4
●Greater consistency between districts and states ●Clearer progression of topics, content, and proficiencies ●Deeper commitment to quality curriculum ●Promote higher expectations ●Partners include 200 higher education institutions ●Foster nationwide accountability with a true national metric Merits of New Standards and PARCC

5
Two Required Assessments Yield Overall Score Performance Based Assessment 75% of school year Extended tasks, applications - ELA: Writing effectively when analyzing text, research simulation - Math: Solving multi-step problems requiring reasoning, precision, perseverance, and use of tools End of Year 90% of school year Innovative, short answer items - ELA: Reading comprehension - Math: Short items; concepts and skills

6
Spring Block Administration Performance Based Assessment Administration Dates: March 23 rd – May 1 st End of Year Assessment Administration Date: May 8 th – June 5 th

7
The ELA PARCC Expects Students to: ● Demonstrate the ability to read and comprehend a variety of complex passages ● Defend ideas with evidence from texts

8
To Succeed on the ELA PARCC, Students Must: ● Gain a comfort level with reading passages in the science and social studies content areas ● Analyze primary source documents ● Construct written arguments using evidence from multiple texts ● Find evidence to support their arguments ● Understand and compare authors’ points of view ● Understand how point of view influences authors’ text

9
Key Shifts in Math Standards ●Focus: Concentration on key topics ●Coherence: Build skills within and across grade levels ●Rigor: Develop conceptual understanding, procedural skills and fluency, and application with equal intensity

10
The Mathematics PARCC Expects Students to: - Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them - Reason abstractly and quantitatively - Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others - Model with mathematics

11
The Mathematics PARCC Expects Students to: - Use appropriate tools strategically - Attend to precision - Look for and make use of structure - Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning

12
HSPAPARCC Single Test Administration March - Performance Based Assessment May - End of Year Assessment Paper based - no technologyAdministered Online 60-135 minutes per day60-90 minutes per unit ELA grades 3 - 8 and 11 Math grades 3 - 8 and 11 Science grades 4 and 8 ELA grades 3-11 Math grades 3-8, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II

13
Typical Student’s Testing Experience ● Classroom, Computer Lab, or Media Center ● Teachers permitted to help with students with technology questions ● Teachers can clarify directions ● Students can flag questions, review, and change answers ● If necessary, computer will be “swapped out” if there is a problem

PARCC Assessment - ELA Item Types and Sample Questions

18
PARCC Assessment Tasks Three Focus Areas 1.Literary Analysis - This task will ask students to carefully consider literature worthy of close study and compose an analytic essay. 2.Research Simulation - This task asks students to exercise the career- and college- readiness skills of observation, deduction, and proper use and evaluation of evidence across text types by analyzing an informational topic presented through several articles or multimedia stimuli. 3.Narrative Writing - This task asks students to write a story, detail a scientific process, write a historical account of important figures, or to describe an account of events, scenes or objects, for example.

19
PARCC Assessment Types of Questions ● Evidence-Based Selected Response (EBSR) ● Technology-Enhanced Constructed Response (TECR) ● Prose-Constructed Response (PCR) *Prose Constructed Response does not appear on EOY

20
Evidence Based Selected Response Items ● Address at least two Common Core reading standards ● May have multiple interconnected parts ● For example, Part B may require students to justify their response to Part A

22
Technology Enhanced Constructed Response Items Technology Enhanced Constructed Response items allow for a variety of technology- enhanced student responses, including but not limited to the following: ● drag and drop ● highlighting the text ● annotating text ● other negotiated methods

24
Prose Constructed Response ● Students will respond in writing to reading selections ● Students’ writing should: ○ include a clear purpose ○ model the language of the Common Core Writing Standards ○ specify the audience to be addressed ○ clearly state the topic, issue, or idea to be addressed ○ reference the text(s)

26
PARCC Assessment Mathematics Item Types and Sample Questions

27
Type 1 Questions: Concepts, Skills and Procedures ● Balance of conceptual understanding, fluency and application ● Can involve any or all of mathematical practice standards ● Machine scored including innovative, computer-based formats ● Will appear on the End of Year and Performance Based Assessments

28
Type 2 Questions: Mathematical Reasoning ● Calls for written arguments/justifications, critiques of reasoning or precision in mathematical statements ● Can involve other mathematical practice standards ● May include a mix of machine and hand scored responses ● Included on the Performance Based Assessment

29
Type 2: Eighth Grade Example Part A Each box below identifies side lengths of a triangle. Classify each triangle by dragging the box to the appropriate location: Right Triangle or Not a Right Triangle 6 cm, 8 cm, 10 cm 12 in, 14 in, 16 in triangle with vertices A (-5,1), B (-2,5), C (6,-1) Right TriangleNot a Right Triangle s= 3 ft

30
For each triangle that is not a right triangle in Part A, prove why the triangle is not a right triangle. Type 2: Eighth Grade Example Part B

31
Type 3: Modeling/Applications ● Calls for modeling/application in a real-world context or scenario ● Can involve other mathematical practice standards ● May include a mix of machine and hand scored responses ● Included on the Performance Based Assessment

35
PARCC Scores and Reports HSPAPARCC 3 Levels - Scale of 100-3005 Levels - Scale of TBD Limited dataRich data Received in Fall of next year Year 1 receive in Fall of next year Years after receive by June of current year Ceiling scoreScore beyond grade level

36
Purpose and Use of PARCC Data ● As one of many multiple measures that assist teachers, our schools, and the district to support differentiated instruction and strategic decision making ● To inform parents and students on progress towards “on track” college and career readiness ● By colleges and universities as one of the indicators of a student’s readiness for entry-level, credit-bearing college courses

37
NJDOE Graduation Requirements For the Classes of 2016, 2017, and 2018: English Language ArtsMathematics Passing score on a PARCC ELA Grade 9 orPassing score on a PARCC Algebra I or Passing score on a PARCC ELA Grade 10 orPassing score on a PARCC Geometry or Passing score on a PARCC ELA Grade 11 orPassing score on a PARCC Algebra II or SAT>=400 or ACT>=16 or Accuplacer Write Placer>=6 orAccuplacer Elementary Algebra>=76 or PSAT>=40 or ACT Aspire>=422 or ASVAB-AFQT>31 or Meet the Criteria of the NJDOE Portfolio Appeal

38
PARCC Preparation ● Standards based curriculum, instruction, and programs ● Practice Tests http://parcc.pearson.com/practice-tests/ ● Technology ○ Strategic plan to support infrastructure and accessibility ○ Skills - Drag and drop, highlight text, cut and paste, move items, use of math tools and online calculators (6-11), graphing tools, and type written responses in ELA and Math ○ http://nextgen.nwoca.org/skill-development http://nextgen.nwoca.org/skill-development ○ http://parcc.pearson.com/tutorial/ (TestNav8 tutorial) http://parcc.pearson.com/tutorial/ ● Mindset - “Do your best but don’t stress!”
