Reauthorization of the Statewide Pupil Assessment System and SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Update Transitioning to New Assessments
California Current Assessments Standardized Testing and Reporting Program (STAR) California Standards Tests (CSTs) Early Assessment Program (EAP) California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA) California Modified Assessment (CMA) Standards-based Tests in Spanish (STS) California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) California English Language Development Test (CELDT) General Educational Development Test (GED) California High School Proficiency Exam (CHSPE) National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Physical Fitness Test (PFT)
Reauthorization of STAR AB250 -- Requires the State Superintendent of Instruction to make recommendations for changes to STAR that reflect an assessment system that would meet the requirements of the current ESEA. Plan : http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/ab250.asphttp://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/ab250.asp January 8 th, 2013 -- presented to the legislature January 16 th, 2013 -- presented to the SBE as an information item
STAR in 2013-14 (requires new legislation) ELA (CST, CMA, CAPA) -Grades 3 – 8, 10 (CAPA only), 11 (CST only) Math (CST, CMA, CAPA) -Grade level exams in Grades 3 – 7 -Algebra in Grades 7 & 8, if applicable -General Math in Grade 8 in no Algebra -Alg. II or H.S. Summative Math for Grade 11 Science (CST, CMA, CAPA) -Grades 5, 8 & 10
What will be eliminated? Grade 2 (CST, CMA, CAPA) Grade 9 ELA (CST, CMA, CAPA) Grade 10 ELA (CST, CMA) Grade 11 ELA (CMA & CAPA) Grade 8 & 11 History World History (9, 10 or 11) EOC Math (except Alg. CST/CMA in 7 & 8, Alg. II & H.S. Math CSTs in Gr. 11) EOC Science--all Grades 2 - 11 STS (Standards Test in Spanish)
Pilot Testing Current Pilot: – 10,000+ items and performance tasks – Two million students – LBUSD: Burcham K-8, Cleveland, Garfield, Henry K-8, Lafayette, Monroe K-8, Muir K-8, Robinson, Cubberley Past LBUSD Pilots: – CAMS: Technology Enabled (on computer) – Newcomb, Holmes, Hudson: Technology Enabled – CORE 8 Pilot: Performance Tasks 6
The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Assessments for grades 3 - 8 and 11 aligned to the Common Core State Standards (ELA and Math) Operational in the 2014–15 school year Meets ESEA assessment requirements 7
9 Six Item Types Selected Response Short Constructed Response Extended Constructed Response Performance Tasks Technology-Enabled Technology-Enhanced Which LBUSD assessments have these types of items?
Common Assessment Formats Paper and pencil testing Computer based testing (CBT) – Uses fixed form but is administered using a computer Computer adaptive testing (CAT) – Presents harder or easier questions, depending on how the student performs as the test proceeds – Can provide greater accuracy with fewer questions 10
11 Computer Adaptive Testing The system will adjust the difficulty of items throughout the assessment Correct or Incorrect Difficulty of Next Item CorrectMore Difficult IncorrectEasier
