  6. Common Core Timeline YOU ARE HERE 2014 -2015 2013 – 2014 Grades 2-7 and 10 this year will test next year Grades 3-8 and 11 will be assessed annually

  7. Developing the Common Core Assessment

  8. What is the Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium? • SBAC is a groupof 25 states that have been working collaboratively to develop next-generation assessments that are aligned to the CCSS and that accurately measure student progress toward college and career readiness. www.smarterbalanced.org • The other consortium: PARCC ~ Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers

  9. SBAC Member States Six ODE staff members are on SBAC Work Groups SMARTER: Summative Multi-State Assessment Resources for Teachers and Educational Researchers

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

  16. Assessment Item Types • Selected Response (SR) • Variety of multiple choice and true/false • Constructed Response (CR) • Short or long answer using textual evidence • Performance Tasks (PT) • Use higher level thinking skills; integrate reading, writing and speaking • Technology Enhanced (TE) • Technology embedded into items

  17. Notice and Note • On a piece of notebook paper, create a T-chart. • Write Student Skills on top of the left column. • During this sample item review, think about the skills students need to be successful in answering the questions. • Jot those skills down on your T-chart.

  18. Smarter Item Types • Multiple Choice • Assess a broad range of content. • Scoring is objective, fast, and generates immediate results. • Difficult to understand a student’s reasoning process and to assess higher-order thinking skills. • Selected Response

  19. Componentsof Selected Response Items Lizards are fascinating creatures. There are over 3,000 known species, including monitors, skinks, geckos, chameleons, and iguanas, and they vary greatly in appearance. The largest lizard, the Komodo dragon, can grow over ten feet long, and the smallest, the Jaragua lizard, can fit on a dime. Skinks usually have smooth scales like snakes, iguanas have mohawk-like crests running down their backs, and the moloch is covered with spikes from head to tail. Lizards vary in color from shades of gray and brown to bright red or green, spotted or striped. Most have four legs but some are legless and easily confused with snakes (Hint: if it has external eardrums and eyelids it’s a lizard). Geckos can walk up walls. Chameleons not only change color but also have prehensile tails, similar to those of monkeys, that wrap around branches and their eyes can move in different directions. What is the best way to revise the highlighted sentence to match the language and style of the paragraph? • Geckos are able to adhere to flush surfaces because setae on their footpads facilitate van der Waals forces between the setae structures and the surface. • Geckos are awesome because they have sticky toes that allow them to climb windows like Spiderman. • Geckos have the remarkable ability to walk up walls thanks to tiny hair-like structures on their toes that cling to smooth surfaces. • Geckos scurry up walls like tiny dancers gliding effortlessly across a stage, their movements as (Reading Passage) STIMULUS What is the best way to revise the highlighted sentence to match the language and style of the paragraph?

  24. Turn and Talk • When do you use Selected Response questions in your classroom? • How might you include them in your formative and summative assessments?

  25. Smarter Item Types • Multiple Choice • Assess a broad range of content. • Scoring is objective, fast, and generates immediate results. • Difficult to understand a student’s reasoning process and to assess higher-order thinking skills. • Selected Response • 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. • Constructed Response

  26. Components of a Constructed Response Item • (Reading Passage) • The Shepherd’s Boy and the Wolf • A Shepherd's Boy was tending his flock near a village, and thought it would be great fun to trick the villagers by pretending that a Wolf was attacking the sheep: so he shouted out, "Wolf! Wolf!" and when the people came running up he laughed at them because they believed him. He did this more than once, and every time the villagers found they had been tricked, for there was no Wolf at all. At last a Wolf really did come, and the Boy cried, "Wolf! Wolf!" as loud as he could: but the people were so used to hearing him call that they took no notice of his cries for help. And so no one came to help the boy, and the Wolf attacked the sheep. • In a few sentences, explain what lesson the reader can learn from the shepherd’s boy. Use details from the story to support your response. STIMULUS STEM • In a few sentences, explain what lesson the reader can learn from the shepherd’s boy.

  30. Scoring a Constructed Response Item

  31. Turn and Talk • What skills do students need to answer Constructed Response questions? • Please write them on your T-chart. • When do students complete short answer questions in your classroom?

  32. Smarter Item Types • Multiple Choice • Assess a broad range of content. • Scoring is objective, fast, and generates immediate results. • Difficult to understand a student’s reasoning process and to assess higher-order thinking skills. • Selected Response • 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. • Constructed Response • Students manipulate information (example: drag and drop) • May have digital media for stimulus: video, animation, sound. • Technology Enhanced

  33. Technology-Based Items • Technology-enhanced • Computer delivered items that include specialized interactions for student responses • Technology-enabled • Computer delivered items that use digital media such as sound or video • May watch or listen multiple times Examples: • Moving an object to a set of locations (drag and drop) • Selecting, copying, pasting blocks of text • Listening to a an audio clip and answering questions

  34. Technology Enhanced A student is writing a story for class. She needs to correct the punctuation mistakes in her paragraph. Read this paragraph from her story and the directions that follow. We were eating supper last night when we heard a huge crash from outside. What had happened. For about ten seconds, we all sat there wondering, and looking at each other. My dad stood up, and we followed him into the yard to see what had caused the loud noise. A giant branch had fallen off the oak tree next to the house. If it had dropped just three feet to the left, it would have crashed right through the roof! Click to highlight two sentences that do not have correct punctuation. 4th grade
