Evidence Based Assessment How do we assess students’ ability to use evidence within the confines of our curriculum and our time?
The CCSS Shifts Build Toward College and Career Readiness for All Students http://www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes
Three Item Types demand Students’ Command of Evidence from Complex Texts • Evidence-Based Selected Response (EBSR)—Combines a traditional selected-response question with a second selected-response question that asks students to show evidence from the text that supports the answer they provided to the first question. Underscores the importance of Reading Anchor Standard 1 for implementation of the CCSS. • Technology-Enhanced Constructed Response (TECR)—Uses technology to capture student comprehension of texts in authentic ways that have been difficult to score by machine for large scale assessments (e.g., drag and drop, cut and paste, shade text, move items to show relationships). • Range of Prose Constructed Responses (PCR)—Elicits evidence that students have understood a text or texts they have read and can communicate that understanding well both in terms of written expression and knowledge of language and conventions. There are four of these items of varying types on each annual performance-based assessment. http://www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes
