SVMI Leading the Way for CCSS September 7 th, 2011 Hayward School District
In the Era of the Common Core Standards David Foster Silicon Valley Mathematics Initiative Assessment for Learning
45* States, DC, and US Virgin Islands Islands 3 *Washington and Idaho have adopted the CCSS conditionally/provisionally ** Minnesota has adopted the CCSS in ELA only
Race to the Top Assessment Program In September 2010, the U.S. Department of Education awarded $350 million of Race to the Top Funds as grants to the two consortia: Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) Task: To design and develop common K-12 Mathematics and English language assessment systems aligned to common, college-and career- readiness standards.
SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium Alabama *California *Connecticut *Idaho *Kansas *Maine *Missouri *Nevada North Carolina Ohio *Oregon South Carolina *Utah *Washington *Wisconsin Wyoming Colorado Delaware *Hawaii Iowa Kentucky *Michigan *Montana *New Hampshire North Dakota Pennsylvania South Dakota *Vermont *West Virginia * Governing States
Caveats These assessment consortia are state-led initiatives with many players - Many decisions have not been made yet -Some decisions are in flux The federal role is to provide support to the states for the development of innovative assessments There will be new assessments in How innovative will the new assessments be?
Intention of SBAC Design To strategically balance summative, interim, and formative assessment through an integrated system of standards, curriculum, assessment, instruction, and teacher development, while providing accurate year-to year indicators of students progress toward college and career readiness. Center for K-12 Assessment and Performance Management at ETS
Current vs. CCSS Current STAR Assessments Grades 2-11, writing at 4 th and 7 th Only paper & pencil option Taken around 85% of the instructional days Only multiple choice Part of the state and federal accountability system Proposed CCSS Assessments Grades 3-8 and 11, Grades 9 and 10 available for states that choose to use them Delivered via computer (Paper and pencil option available for 3 years) and are computer adaptive Taken during the final 12 weeks of school Performance tasks and comprehensive end-of -year computer adaptive assessment which will some selected response items Accountability system has not been established yet
Proposed Elements to the Common Assessment Online testing College and career-readiness assessment aimed at 11 th grade Rapid reporting system to inform instruction Teachers involved in developing and scoring tests Item types – Short constructed response – Extended constructed response – Technology enhanced – Performance tasks – Selected response
Proposed Assessment System Components Summative assessment (computer adaptive) -supports accountability and measures growth Interim assessment (computer adaptive) -Optional comprehensive and content cluster assessment -Learning progressions -Available for administration throughout the year Formative process and tools -Optional resources for improving instructional learning -Assessment literacy
The System (Possible Scenario)
Proposed Timeline Development of formative tools, processes, and practices underway; Specifications for summative and interim assessments developed Summative and interim item development completed ; Interim item pool become available for use Field testing of items for adaptive summative assessment completed Preliminary achievement standards proposed and other policy definitions adopted Operational summative assessment administered; Final achievement standards verified and adopted Center for K-12 Assessment & Performance Management at ETS
Novice – short items focused on skills and routines Apprentice – medium performance tasks with scaffolding Expert – long tasks with high cognitive load and/or complexity. Types of Tasks in Mathematics
SBACs Specifications for Math Written by Hugh Burkhardt and Alan Shoenfeld as commissioned by Linda Darling Hammond for SBAC. 60% of the SBAC will be assessed using performance assessment and scored using an analytic point scoring rubric (fashion after MARS rubrics) 40% will be machined scored.
