HCPS II HCPS III Standard Benchmark (grade cluster) Performance Indicator (one or more per benchmark: together these indicators attempted to cover the benchmark) Standard Topic Benchmark (grade cluster) Sample Performance Assessment (one per benchmark, one way of showing achievement of the benchmark) Rubric (assess achievement of the benchmark) Social Studies, Career and Technical Education, Fine Arts, World Languages HCPS II vs. III Comparison: Organization
Strandthe big ideas that define a content area Content Standard a broad statement of what a student needs to know or be able to do at the end of K-12 schooling TOPICa category under which related benchmarks are grouped Grade-Level Benchmark a specific statement of what a student should know or be able to do at a specific grade level or grade level cluster Sample Performance Assessment a generalized description of how a student can demonstrate significant aspects of the benchmark Rubric a tool to assess the quality of a students achievement of the benchmarks at the specified taxonomic level HCPS III: Organization

More Definitions Sample Performance Assessment = a generalized description of how a student might demonstrate significant aspects of the benchmark Specific Task = a specific description of how a student might demonstrate knowledge or skill related to significant aspects of a benchmark Rubric = a description of levels of performance in relation to a benchmark
Specific task Sample Benchmark WL.IS.Y1.3.1 (HCPSIII p.39) Use oral language skills to make simple presentations Sample Performance Assessment (SPA): The student: Gives oral presentations (e.g., information, poetry, songs), arranging ideas to focus on a single topic using both memorized and original sentences, may use props, visual aids, or technological presentation tools. Task/Activity: The student: Gives a 1 minute speech to the class on his/her favorite school subject.
Generalized rubric AdvancedProficientPartially proficient Novice Use simple phrases and expanded vocabulary to make simple presentations on a variety of topics Use simple phrases and familiar vocabulary to make simple presentations on commonly encountered topics Use simple phrases and familiar vocabulary to make simple presentations on some very familiar topics Use only memorized words or phrases to make simple presentation on limited topics
Task Specific rubric AdvancedProficientPartially proficient Novice Use simple phrases and expanded vocabulary, with accuracy and expression. Use simple phrases and familiar vocabulary, with no significant errors and some detail. Use simple phrases and familiar vocabulary, with a few significant errors and minimal detail. Use only memorized words or phrases with many significant errors.
Rubric Focus Consistency Difficulty Error Level of detail Significance of detail Quality Speed or Fluency Variety
Task Specific/Benchmark Assessment The student prepares and presents a collage that describes himself/herself on videotape. Video exchanged with school of target culture.
Small group work Select a course and one benchmark. Design a specific task for that benchmark. *Create a rubric for the task.
Break Time, but please …
Benchmark Maps Purpose: Provides consistency in identifying when benchmarks will be addressed as schools develop curriculum maps.
Benchmark maps are: Sequences of clustered benchmarks by quarters Clustered around Big Ideas of a grade or course
The Benchmark Map is developed with the following premises: All benchmarks for the grade level/course will be achieved in a school year. Major understandings are the big generalizations for the topic/concept. Benchmarks are presented in the suggested quarter for assessment. Italicized benchmarks are developed and assessed throughout the year.
Criteria considered Classroom practice and teacher input Language specific considerations (e.g., level of language learning difficulty) Content, skills, and topics Essential concepts of second language development o scaffolded learning o extended listening experience o receptive skills before productive skills
Taxonomic levels Benchmarks that contribute to big ideas for the time period Related benchmarks Balance of outcomes among the four quarters Difficulty and complexity of benchmarks
Sample of Benchmark Map: Introduction to World Languages A Grades 7/8 Semester 1, Quarter 1 Big Idea(s) / Major Understanding(s): Students will understand that: The functional use of a language is learned through developing and applying skills in authentic or meaningful contexts. Awareness of the perspectives of another culture provides insight into ones own culture and develops respect for the practices, products, beliefs, and values of other cultures
Introduction to World Languages A Grades 7/8 Semester 1, Quarter 1 HCPS III Benchmarks: WL.IS Identify tangible and intangible products and practices of the target culture and compare them to other cultures WL.IS Ask and answer social questions to get information or to maintain a conversation
Pair/share: What role do benchmark maps play in standards-based education? How can I use the maps?
Sample Curriculum Map
Application of Benchmark Maps Do a curriculum map for the first quarter of one course, based on the draft of the benchmark maps. Submit through courier or by to Lynette Fujimori by September 1, 2006.
