SIX STANDARDS RELATED TO TEACHER EFFECTIVENESS STANDARDS 1-5 FROM OBSERVATIONS AND EVIDENCE STANDARD 6 AS A MEASURE OF STUDENT GROWTH WITH A TEACHER AND IN A SCHOOL Reminders- NC Teacher Evaluation Instrument
What are MSLs/Common Exams? New assessments provided by the state of North Carolina in certain subject areas Created by teams of teachers from across NC Student growth data from Common Exam scores will be one data point used in populating Standard 6 on a teacher’s evaluation
Assessments that measure what a student should know at the end of a course be able to do at the end of a course Replace a teacher-made final exam Count 25% of a student’s overall grade in a high school course What are MSLs/Common Exams?

What are MSLs/Common Exams? Timed Assessments 90 minutes – TOTAL TESTING TIME Considered a classroom test classroom testing accommodations apply Consist of Multiple Choice Constructed Response Items* Must be scored by teachers before assessment can be scanned
ETHICAL STANDARDS Since constructed response items will be scored daily and teachers will see the constructed response items before all students take the exams, teachers will be reminded that information related to the Constructed Response questions cannot be discussed with other classes.
To eliminate the need for Proctors, we will utilize a department trade-off model. Teachers will pick up testing materials from the office conference room on the date of the test. When the testing session is complete, teachers will return test materials to the conference room.
How will we score the Constructed Response Items? Teachers will meet at 2:45 pm to score Common Exams after students are dismissed from school.
Table tents will be placed on each table to designate where scoring will occur for each course. Courses within each content area will be grouped together.
Folders will be located on each table. Contents included within this folder will include: Directions Scoring Rubrics Blank Piece of Paper Before scoring begins, the scoring team for each content area will need to look at each question and the rubric.
Best practices for scoring student work Ensure consistency of scores based on state rubrics Maintain “blindness” Graders will complete a score card for each paper. He/she will assign a number for each response based on the rubric(s). A class roster will be included with materials for the recorder.
How will we score Constructed Response Items? The recorder will maintain the roster with both the student name & NC WISE Number Graders will put the number they would assign to each constructed response with their initials, NC WISE number and subject on the cardstock. Once they are finished with this for each student, they will pass this card to the recorder. The recorder will create a master list with the number for each question. He/she will also be responsible for bubbling the numbers on the answer sheet.
How will we score Constructed Response Items? The recorder will finish creating a master list with the scores for each constructed response from each teacher.
Scoring of Common Exams Scores from Constructed Response items will then be transferred to student’s answer documents. Graders will double check that all scores recorded on the answer sheet are correct. Student answer documents will then be scanned at Central Services. Scores will be returned to teachers for student grade calculations for high school. How will we score Constructed Response Items?
When will we score items? Common Exam Scoring will take place on the following dates: May 20, 2013 May 21, 2013 May 22, 2013 The second person will score at HCHS on May 29, 2013.
