6 Resources for Formative Assessment Insert Quality Core link

7 How are students doing DURING the year? Increased emphasis on formative assessment Global Scholar – Over 600,000 tests administered to date in 84% of the districts QualityCore – Over 330 teachers trained in January Other? 7

8 ALABAMA HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA This one approach to the Alabama High School Diploma removes the need for endorsements or the Alabama Occupational Diploma. The focus will be on the coursework taken that necessitates a clearly articulated and individualized four-year high school plan built for each student based on the results from the EXPLORE academic and career interest assessment and middle school coursework Draft

9 Equivalent Course Approval Process Courses may be submitted by LEAs or initiated from SDE An Equivalent Course Committee will review for standards and rigor – 4 times a year Approval will be granted ultimately by Dr. Bice

10 Whats Next with CCRS PD! Summer Teaching Academies will be offered throughout the state in June and July Goal is to go deeper into the standards and to develop lessons and units of study for all grade levels and courses Three days in Summer, 2013, with two follow up days in school year

11 Absolutes During the Transition Teach to the standards for each of the required subjects (Alabama College- and Career-Ready Standards - Courses of Study) Through a clearly articulated and locally aligned K-12 curriculum (Sample curricula found on ALEX and Alabama Insight) Supported by aligned resources, support, and professional development (Sample lesson plans and supporting resources found on ALEX, differentiated support through ALSDE Regional Support Teams and ALSDE Initiatives, etc.) Monitored regularly through formative, interim/benchmark assessments to inform the effectiveness of the instruction and continued learning needs of individuals and groups of students (GlobalScholar, QualityCore Benchmarks, and other locally determined assessments) With a goal that each student graduates from high school with the knowledge and skills to succeed in post-high school education and the workforce without the need for remediation as evidenced by multiple measures achieved through multiple pathways to meet the graduation requirements set for students in Alabama.
