Meeting May 5, 2011

2
What is the CCSS Initiative?
• An initiative of the National Governors
Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State
School Officers (CCSSO)
• A significant and historic opportunity for states
to collectively develop and adopt a core set of
English/Language Arts

2
3
What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
• Fewer, clearer, and higher
• Aligned with college and work expectations
• Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking
and application of knowledge
• Evidence- and/or research-based
• Internationally benchmarked

Sample from CCSS -Mathematics

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
• Key design considerations
• Individual grade levels in K-8
• Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers,
fractions, and decimals
• Solid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry,
algebra, and probability and statistics

7
Mathematics Alignment Examples
• Page 23, 3.OA, 7
• Fluently multiply and divide within 100.
• Page 24, 3.NF, 3a
• Understand two fractions as equivalent.
• Competency 1 Objective i
• Recall multiplication and division facts.
• Competency 1 Objective f
• Model and identify equivalent fractions.

Cont.
8
Mathematics Alignment Examples
• Page 31, 4.MD, 3
• Apply the area formula for rectangles in real
world and mathematical problems.
• Competency 4 Objective c
• Use formula to estimate and calculate the area
of a rectangle.

9
Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework
• Initial alignment study done in-house and
• Overall alignment is not good
• -Many specifics in the CCSS are addressed in
the MS Math Framework but at a lower
• -Several of the MS Math Framework
• objectives are not mentioned in the
• Common Core
• CCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math
Framework

Common Core State Standards for English Language
Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies,
Science, and Technical Subjects
• Key design considerations
• Sections divided by Strands for K-5 and 6-12
• Writing
• Speaking and Listening
• Language

12
ELA Alignment Examples
• Page 14, RI, 1
understanding of a text, explicitly using the
text as the basis for the answers.
• Competency 2
• Objective b, b1, b6
• Analyze texts in order to identify, understand,
infer, or synthesize information.
• -identify cause and effect as stated in text

Cont.
13
ELA Alignment Examples
• Page 21, W, 5
• With guidance and support from peers and adults,
strengthen writing as needed by revising and
editing.
• Competency 3 Objective a
• Use an appropriate composing process (e.g.,
planning, drafting, revising, editing, and
publishing/sharing) to compose or edit.

14
Alignment of CCSS English Language Arts (ELA)
and MS ELA
• Initial alignment study done in-house and
• Overall alignment is good
• -Few specifics in the CCSS are not addressed
• in the MS ELA Framework or not
• at the same grade level
• -Many of the MS ELA Framework
• objectives and sub-objectives are
not
• mentioned in the Common Core
• Rigor is comparable

14
15
Common Core State Standards
• High School

16
Common CoreHigh School Mathematics
• CCSS Grade 8 is comparable to the current MS
Algebra I course.
• High school standards require students to
practice applying mathematical ways of thinking
to real world situations.

17
Common CoreHigh School Mathematics
• High school standards are listed in conceptual
categories
• -number and quantity
• -algebra
• -functions
• -modeling
• -geometry
• -statistics and probability

19
Common Core State Standards English Language Arts
• Literacy standards in History/Social Studies,
Science and Technical Subjects

Race to the Top (RttT) Assessment Proposals
• The Process
• Proposals were due from multi-state consortia on
June 23, 2010
• Awards were made in September, 2010
• New Consortia tests to replace current state NCLB
tests in 2014-2015
• Two Comprehensive Assessment Proposals Funded
• Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for
College and Careers (PARCC)
• 26 states, 31 million students K-12
• SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
• 31 states, 21 million students K-12
• Note 12 states currently in both and 6 states in
neither

RttT Assessment Program Requirements
• Build upon shared standards for college/career
• Measure individual growth as well as proficiency
• Measure the extent each student is on track, at
each grade level tested, toward college/career
readiness by high school completion, and provide
information that is useful in informing
• Teaching, learning, and program improvement
• Determinations of school effectiveness
• Determinations of educator effectiveness for use
in evaluations and provision of support to
teachers/principals
• Determinations of individual student
exit decisions, college course placement into
credit-bearing classes, and/or college entrance.

Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for
College and Careers (PARCC)
• Received Race to the Top funds to help support
states efforts to transition to the CCSS and
assessments
• Formed the Assessment Design and Development
Committee
• Established timeline
• Met in Dec. 2010 to begin work on test
specifications
• Met in Feb. 2011 with content specialists and
post-secondary reps

23
Basic PARCC Timeline
• 2010-2011 Development/approval of common
policies/procedures
• 2011-2012 Initial item and task development,
piloting of components
• 2011-2012 Development of PD resources
online platform
• 2012-2013 Field testing
• 2013-2014 Field testing
• 2014-2015 New summative assessments in use
• Summer 2015 Setting of common achievement
standards

PARCC Two Types of
Summative Assessments
• One to three tasks that assess a
• few keystone standards/topics
• Given at three points during the
• school year, near the end of quarters
• Results within 2 weeks to inform
• instruction and intervention
• Taken on computer, with mixed
• item types
• Scored entirely by computer for
• fast results

Scores from both focused end-of-yr.
assessments will be combined for annual
accountability score.

PARCC Focused Assessments 1 and 2
• In a single session/class period, students in
• ELA Read texts, draw evidence to form
conclusions, and prepare a written analysis
• Math For each of 1 or 2 essential topics
(standards or clusters of standards), complete 1

26
PARCC Focused Assessment 3
• Over several sessions/class periods, students
will complete a project-like task that draws on a
range of skills. Examples
• ELA Locate digital information, evaluate
and
• select sources, and compose an
essay or
• research paper
• Math Perform a multi-step performance task
• that requires application of
mathematical
• skills and reasoning and may
require
• technological tools
classroom,
• not used for accountability,
scored by teacher.

PARCC End-of-Year Assessment
• Composed of 40 to 65 questions of a range of
item types including innovative
technology-enhanced items to sample the full year
of standards
• Scored by computer
• Will make major investment in enhanced item types
