SMARTER BALANCED QUESTION TYPES OVERVIEW TEXT TXT EXT Assess a broad range of content. Scoring is objective, fast, and inexpensive to score. Difficult to understand a student’s reasoning process and to assess higher-order thinking skills. Require the student to generate a response as opposed to selecting a response. Include both short and extended responses. Allow students to demonstrate their use of complex thinking skills consistent with the expectations for college and career readiness. Require students to demonstrate ability to think and reason, and produce fully developed products. Measure complex “assessment targets.” Provide evidence of college and career readiness.
“Claims” for Mathematics Summative Assessment Claim #1 Concepts & Procedures: “Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.” Claim #2 Problem Solving: “Students can solve a range of complex well- posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies.” Claim #3 Communicating Reasoning: “Students can clearly and precisely construct viable arguments to support their own reasoning and to critique the reasoning of others.” Claim #4 Modeling and Data Analysis: “Students can analyze complex, real-world scenarios and can construct and use mathematical models to interpret and solve problems.”
