  1. Statewide Assessment Update Vince Dean, Ph.D. Director, Office of Standards & Assessment January 30, 2013 SIFN

  2. The Assessment Challenge ...to here? Common Core State Standards specify K-12 expectations for career and college readiness All studentsleave high school career and college ready ...and what can an assessment system do to help? How do we get from here...

  3. Transitions • MEAP  SBAC • MME  SBAC • MEAP-Access (for students with disabilities for whom both MEAP/MME and MI-Access are inappropriate)  SBAC • MI-Access (for students with significant cognitive disabilities) • Functional Independence (for students with mild cognitive disabilities) • Supported Independence (for students with moderate cognitive disabilities) • Participation (for students with severe cognitive disabilities)  DLM • Michigan English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA)  WIDA/ASSETS

  4. SBAC - A Consortium of States • 25 states representing 40% of K-12 students in U.S. • 21 governing, 4 advisory states • Washington state is fiscal agent • WestEd provides project management services

  5. A Balanced Assessment System Summative assessments Benchmarked to career and college readiness Teachers and schools have information and tools they need to improve teaching and learning Common Core State Standards specify K-12 expectations for career and college readiness All students leave high school career and college ready Teacher resources for formative assessment practices to improve instruction Interim assessments Flexible, open, used for actionable feedback

  7. Timeline Formative Processes, Tools, and Practices Development Begins Summative Master Work Plan Developed and Work Groups Launched Writing and Review of Pilot Items/Tasks (including Cognitive Labs and Small-Scale Trials) Writing and Review of Field Test Items/Tasks (throughout the school year) Field Testing of Summative and Interim Items/Tasks Conducted Final Achievement Standards (Summative) Verified and Adopted Procurement Plan Developed Content and Item Specifications Development Pilot Testing of Summative and Interim Items/Tasks Conducted Preliminary Achievement Standards (Summative) Proposed and Other Policy Definitions Adopted Operational Summative Assessment Administered Common Core State Standards Adopted by All Member States

  20. ASSETS Cont. • Future: • 2015/16 School Year: • WIDA W-APT & WIDA ACCESS  WIDA ASSETS • ASSETS will be a fully online screener/interim/summative assessment system

  21. ASSETS Timeline

  22. Alternate ACCESS Currently available Designed for ELs who are also SWDs Based on alternate performance indicators and alternate proficiency levels

  23. Michigan Developed Interim Assessment Timelines

  24. Michigan Developed Interim Assessment Timelines

  25. Technology Readiness Progress Bruce Umpstead, OEII & Dave Judd, BAA Spring 2015, online assessment to the extent possible Smarter Balanced and Michigan accountability assessments will have paper/pencil version at least through spring 2017 Michigan interim assessments are optional so no paper/pencil version
