1 Using Acuity to Guide Instruction Sandra Foster Office of Assessment and Accountability Leatha Williams Office of School Improvement

2 Acuity an Instructional Tool When our students leave school, we want them to be college and career ready. This requires mastery of both content and skills.

3 CCSS Alignment West Virginia Custom Items Alignment to both CCSS and NxGen CSOs Crosswalks developed by Office of Instruction and WV teachers Learning targets may move up or down grade levels Items will be checked for grade level appropriateness Acuity Items Shelf items have been aligned with the CCSS

4 CCSS Rollout Acuity office intends to help students and teachers with the transition. Student mastery will continue to be assessed using WESTEST 2. (last administration in spring 2014) NxGen Interim Assessments Math Grades 4 and 5 – mini-assessments by cluster Math I – assessments by units RLA Greater complexity of changes due to passages Probably will create mini-assessments by cluster

5 Using Acuity to Target Skills/Objectives Teacher-Created or Common Assessments Benchmark Assessments Instructional Probes Data Reports on Assessments Instructional Resources

10 532 items available for RLA Students will interpret and extend the ideas in literary and informational texts to summarize, determine story elements, skim and scan, determine cause and effect, compare and contrast, visualize, paraphrase, infer, sequence, determine fact and opinion, draw conclusions, analyze characterize and provide main idea

11 Common Core Language RI.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.

12 WVDE State Authored Benchmark Assessments WVDE Benchmarks WV CSOs form the basis of the assessments Aligned to 21 st century CSOs in content and DOK Similar in style and blueprint to WESTEST 2

13 Using Acuity Data to Improve Student Performance There is a correlation between STUDENT PERFORMANCE on Benchmark 3 and WESTEST 2. Data analysis: Analyze benchmark data to identify areas of individual student weakness on specific learning targets Differentiate instruction – Assign Instructional Resources at the appropriate developmental level as a re-teach tool for students – Other instructional resources
