1 Company LOGO Introduction to the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and PARCC Assessments 1


3 corestandards.org3 Standards Development Process Summer Develop college and career readiness standards Develop K-12 learning progressions Collect multiple rounds of feedback from states, teachers, researchers, higher education and the general public June 2, Final Common Core State Standards released

4 Why is this important? Previously, each state had their own academic standards. Students will now have less difficulty moving between schools and states. All students have clear expectations and skills to compete with both American and international peers. Textbooks can have more focus, coherence and rigor. States can share resources and compare data. adapted from corestandards.org4

5 45 States + DC Have Adopted the Math Common Core State Standards 5 *Minnesota adopted the CCSS in ELA/literacy only

6 corestandards.org6 The Common Core State Standards: Have rigorous content and application of knowledge Use lessons learned from current state standards Are internationally benchmarked Are based on evidence and research

7 Common Core State Standards Fewer, Clearer, Higher –Focus –Coherence –Rigor 7

8 corestandards.org8 Intentional Design Limitations What the Standards do NOT define: The nature of advanced work beyond the core The interventions needed for students well below grade level The full range of support for English language learners and students with special needs

9 Standards for Mathematical Practice These are K-12 standards that describe habits of mind of a mathematically proficient student 1.Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2.Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3.Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4.Model with mathematics. 5.Use appropriate tools strategically. 6.Attend to precision. 7.Look for and make use of structure. 8.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. 9

10 K-8 Standards presented by grade level Each grade introductions highlights critical areas Organized into domains that progress over several grades High School Standards presented by conceptual categories (Number & Quantity, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, Statistics & Probability) Standards for Mathematical Content 10

11 CCSSM Vocabulary Organization of the document Standards define what students should understand and be able to do. Clusters summarize groups of related standards. Domains are larger groups of related standards. **Standards from different domains and clusters may sometimes be closely related. 11

12 K-8 Write and interpret numerical expressions. 5.OA.1. Use parentheses, brackets, or braces in numerical expressions, and evaluate expressions with these symbols. 5.OA.2. Write simple expressions that record calculations with numbers, and interpret numerical expressions without evaluating them. For example, express the calculation add 8 and 7, then multiply by 2 as 2 × (8 + 7). Recognize that 3 × ( ) is three times as large as , without having to calculate the indicated sum or product. Operations & Algebraic Thinking 5.OA Domain Cluster Standards 12

14 corestandards.org14 Putting It All Together Standards: Important but insufficient To be effective in improving education and getting all students ready for college, workforce training, and life, the Standards must be partnered with a content-rich curriculum and robust assessments, both aligned to the Standards.

15 The Assessment Proposals The Process: Proposals were due from multi-state consortia on June 23, 2010 Awards were made in September, 2010 New Consortia tests will replace the current state NCLB tests in

16 Assessment Consortia PARCC – Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career, this is a 24-state consortium that is developing assessments for grades (Illinois) Smarter Balance – This is the second major consortium developing assessments. ASSETS – English Language Proficiency Assessment System – this consortium is developing assessments for English Language Learners. (Illinois) DLM – Dynamic Learning Maps Assessment Consortium - this consortium is developing assessments for students with disabilities. NCSC – National Center and State Collaborative – this consortium is also developing assessments for students with disabilities.

17 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) 17


19 Claims Driving Design: Mathematics Students solve problems involving the major content for their grade level with connections to practices Students solve problems involving the additional and supporting content for their grade level with connections to practices Students express mathematical reasoning by constructing mathematical arguments and critiques Students solve real world problems engaging particularly in the modeling practice Student demonstrate fluency in areas set forth in the Standards for Content in grades 3-6 Students are on-track or ready for college and careers 19

20 Goals of the PARCC System 1.Create high-quality assessments 2.Build a pathway to college and career readiness for all students 3.Support educators in the classroom 4.Develop 21 st century, technology-based assessments 5.Advance accountability at all levels 6.Build an assessment that is sustainable and affordable

21 Goal #1: Create High Quality Assessments 21 Priority Purposes of PARCC Assessments: 1.Determine whether students are college- and career-ready or on track 2.Assess the full range of the Common Core Standards, including standards that are difficult to measure 3.Measure the full range of student performance, including high and low performing students 4.Provide data during the academic year to inform instruction, interventions and professional development 5.Provide data for accountability, including measures of growth 6.Incorporate innovative approaches throughout the system taken from

22 Goal #2: Build a Pathway to College and Career Readiness for All Students 22 K High School Optional K-2 formative assessment being developed, aligned to the PARCC system Timely student achievement data showing students, parents and educators whether ALL students are on-track to college and career readiness ONGOING STUDENT SUPPORTS/INTERVENTIONS College readiness score to identify who is ready for college-level coursework SUCCESS IN FIRST- YEAR, CREDIT- BEARING, POSTSECONDARY COURSEWORK Targeted interventions & supports: 12 th -grade bridge courses PD for educators taken from


24 Goal #4: Develop 21 st Century, Technology-Based Assessments 24 PARCCs assessment will be computer-based and leverage technology in a range of ways to: Item Development –Develop innovative tasks that engage students in the assessment process Administration –Reduce paperwork, increase security, reduce shipping/receiving & storage –Increase access to and provision of accommodations for SWDs and ELLs Scoring –Make scoring more efficient by combining human and automated approaches Reporting –Produce timely reports of students performance throughout the year to inform instructional, interventions, and professional development taken from

25 Minimum Technology Guidelines

26 PARCC Assessment Design 26 Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) Extended tasks Applications of concepts and skills Required Diagnostic Assessment Early indicator of student knowledge and skills to inform instruction, supports, and PD Non-summative 2 Optional Assessments/Flexible Administration Mid-Year Assessment Performance-based Emphasis on hard- to-measure standards Potentially summative End-of-Year Assessment Innovative, computer-based items Required Speaking And Listening Assessment Locally scored Non-summative, required
