    and attendance, class size, school safety,
    teacher quality at school, district and state
    levels and is utilized by many who make decisions
    about K-12 education in our state.

11
ABCs Reports
  • The High Student Performance tab includes
    information about how students performed on state
    end-of-grade or end-of-course tests.
  • The Safe, Orderly and Caring Schools tab
    highlights data for school safety, student
    attendance and instructional resources, which
    includes how many books are in school libraries
    and how many classrooms are connected to the
    Internet.
  • The Quality Teachers tab provides information
    about the number of teachers who are
    fully-licensed and/or have advanced degrees or
    National Board Certification, and the percent of
    teachers that are classified as Highly Qualified
    as defined by the federal No Child Left Behind
    Act.

    specialists, nurses, social workers, and
    psychologists employed full-time in North
    Carolina public schools. Interdisciplinary
    seminar topics include the physical and
    biological sciences, technology, humanities,
    arts, communication, and health and wellness
  • Each five-day seminar includes immersion in
    hands-on study and learning with colleagues from

ACRE and Essential Standards
  • North Carolina's Accountability and Curriculum
    Reform Effort - ACRE - is the state's
    comprehensive initiative to redefine the Standard
    Course of Study for K-12 students, the student
    testing program and the school accountability
    model.

Remember!
  • Even though we are preparing for the new
    Essential Standards, the SCOS will be taught and
    tested through the 2011-2012 school year.
  • There will be no transition year.

    ESSENTIAL STANDARDS
27
RBT Essential Standards
  • The Essential Standards are written using the
    Revised Bloom's Taxonomy
  • RBT has well-defined verbs and is built on modern
    cognitive research
  • RBT will help move North Carolina students to the
    complex thinking expected from 21st Century
    graduates

28
Revised Blooms Taxonomy
  • The RBT categorizes both the cognitive process
    and the knowledge dimension of the standard

29
RBT answers the Four Fundamental Questions
  • THE LEARNING QUESTION
  • What is important for students to learn in the
    limited school and
  • classroom time available? (Prioritized and
    focused)
  • THE INSTRUCTION QUESTION
  • How does one plan and deliver instruction that
    will result in high
  • levels of learning for large numbers of students?
    ( Success for all)
  • THE ASSESSMENT QUESTION
  • How does one select or design assessment
    instruments and
  • procedures that provide accurate information
    about how well
  • students are learning? (Assessment for learning
    and less assessment
  • of learning)
  • THE ALIGNMENT QUESTION
  • How does one ensure that objectives, instruction
    and assessment
  • are consistent with one another? (the degree of
    consistency)

30
ESSENTIAL STANDARD What is it? Essential
Standards express the most important knowledge
(object) and processes (verb) students should
learn during the semester or year in which the
course or subject is taught. What does it look
like? All Essential Standards have the same
grammatical structure subject-verb-object and
will start with The student
Course
Essential Standards and Clarifying Objectives
The New SCOS
CLARIFYING OBJECTIVE What is it? Clarifying
Objectives express the necessary knowledge and
processes students must master in order to master
the ES. The clarifying objectives unpack the
most important content for clear understanding of
the ES. They are, however, above the day-to-day
instructional objective level. What does it look
like?For the purposes of distinguishing them
from Essential Standards, Clarifying Objectives
will begin with the verb, not "The student as
will Essential Standards.
31
  • Assessment PrototypesUsed as part off the
    standards development process
  • As a bridge to classroom assessment and test
    development
  • To ensure the standards are concrete and
    measurable

The Classroom Prototypical Assessment is a
question, problem, or task that a teacher could
use in the classroom to determine how well
students are learning the Essential Standard.
For the purposes of the accountability framework,
the EOC-EOG Prototypical Assessment must be
written as it would likely show up on a summative
assessment. Notice that the Classroom and EOC-EOG
may be (and in some cases should be) based on the
same kind of question, problem, or task. They
differ primarily in their format.
32

National Standards in Science
  • The National Science Education Standards were
    produced by the National Research Council in 1995
    and published in 1996. The Standards were the
    result of four years of work by twenty-two
    scientific and science education societies and
    over 18,000 individual contributors. The National
    Science Teachers Association is now part of an
    ongoing effort to implement the Standards in
    classrooms throughout the country.

38
NEW National Standards in Science
  • Draft framework public comment from July 12
    through August 2
  • The NRC committee has begun the process of
    summarizing and digesting.
  • This process will take several months.
  • Once the revisions are complete, the framework
    will undergo confidential review.
  • Then the framework report will be finalized and
    released to the public.
  • The final version will not be publicly available
    until early 2011.

39
NEW National Standards in Science
  • The education nonprofit organization Achieve
    (www.achieve.org) will then work with a group of
    states to develop a set of standards for K-12
    science education
  • They will be based on and guided by the final NRC
    committee framework report.
  • Achieve has already begun planning and is
    currently developing a network of state partners.
  • Further opportunities for public comment will be
    managed by Achieve as its work on the science
    education standards proceeds in 2011.
