Title: Illinois Alternate Assessment


1
Illinois Alternate Assessment
  • Directors Conference
  • July 31, 2008

2
Misc. Assessment Update
  • Vacancy
  • 2 flexibility
  • 2008-2009
  • Accommodations
  • Guidelines

3
IAA Agenda Overview
  • Where weve been
  • What weve learned
  • Adjustments
  • Scoring Validation
  • Calendar
  • Resources

4
IAA Life Cycle to Date
  • Fall 2006 Writing Pilot
  • February 2007 Portfolios R, M, S
  • Spring 2007 Writing Operational
  • Fall 2007 Pilot R, M, S
  • Spring 2008 Operational for R, M, S, W
  • 2009 adds Gr. 3 Writing to complete operational
    test

5
ISBE IAA 2008 Survey
  • May, 2008, an electronic survey was sent out to
    teachers and coordinators using contact
    information from the Pearson Assessment Network
    and Scoring System.
  • 345 Teachers Coordinators participated in the
    survey

6
Excellent Work, Coordinators!!
  • 92 of teachers knew in advance when the testing
    window would fall.
  • 94 of teachers reported the IAA coordinator had
    the online scoring set up and ready for scoring.
  • 95 of teachers said they knew who to contact if
    there was a problem.

7
Time required for administration
8
Concern 1
  • 51 of teachers attended a training session
  • This raises questions regarding the use of the
    trainer of trainers model. The accuracy of test
    administration and scoring may have been
    impacted.

9
Concern 2
  • Comparability to regular assessments in terms of
    content coverage.
  • In states I have worked with, there tend to be
    more alternate assessment items than (ISBE) has
    developed. (peer reviewer)

10
Response to the Two ConcernsPotential for
Refinement
11
2009 IAA Training, Part 1
  • More training sessions will be provided in 2009
  • Northern Illinois including Chicago
  • January 26-30, 2009
  • Central and Southern Illinois
  • February 2-6, 2009
  • Watch the ISBE website for signup opportunities
    in your area of the state in Fall, 2008.

12
2009 Training, (Possible) Part 2
  • To further ensure precise administration and
    scoring of the tasks, especially for those
    teachers who have not been trained
  • Rubric language could be embedded in the teacher
    administration instructions.

13
Built-In Task Characteristics
  • Plus
  • Task-specific texts, symbols, and artwork
    embedded in the task.
  • The General Prompt embedded in the task (in the
    event it is needed).
  • All tasks would follow the same rubric template
    for teacher administration instructions.
  • Flexibility in presentation of tasks and how the
    student responds would be maintained.

14
Sample Science Task
  • Primary Task
  • a dog and a cat a cat and a plant
    three bushes
  • Which picture shows only mammals?
  • General Prompt
  • Rabbits are mammals.

15
Sample Draft Teacher Instructions
  • Level 4
  • Show the student the primary task and say Which
    picture shows only mammals? Present the answer
    options in order and say a dog and a cat, a cat
    and a plant, three bushes.
  • The student receives a score of 4 for a correct
    response.
  • If the student does not respond or responds
    incorrectly, you may repeat the question exactly
    as it appears
  • one time only. If the student again chooses an
    incorrect answer or does not respond, move to
    Level 3.
  • Level 3
  • Show the student the general prompt and say
    Rabbits are mammals.
  • Re-present the primary task and say Which
    picture shows only mammals? Re-present the
    answer options in order and say a dog and a cat,
    a cat and a plant, three bushes.
  • The student receives a score of 3 for a correct
    response. If no response or incorrect response,
    move to Level 2.
  • Level 2
  • Indicate the specific prompt and say Cats
    and dogs are mammals.
  • Re-present the primary task and say Which
    picture shows only mammals? Indicate the choices
    in order and say a dog and a cat, a cat and a
    plant, three bushes.
  • The student receives a score of 2 for a correct
    response. If no response or incorrect response,
    move to Level 1.

16
Build a Better IAA by
  • Extending
  • content coverage
  • requires increasing
  • the quantity of items.

17
2008 IAA Operational Test

Required tasks covering identified
priorities. FT field test task (pilot) for
future tests
18
Sample Content Coverage Plan
  • Each Standard assessed with
  • At least 1 task for each objective
  • 2 tasks for each identified high priority
    objective (2 priority objectives at each
    subjects grade level).
  • 4 objectives always assessed (tasks assessed
    annually as anchor items)

19
Using the previous content coverage plan, the
2009 Operational Test would look like

Required tasks covering all objectives in each
subject. FT field test task (pilot) for
future tests
20
Some Things Never Change
  • Assessment frameworks remain the same.
  • IAA Participation Guidelines remain the same.
  • Use of mode of communication specific to the
    individual student remains the same.
  • Options in types of student responses remains the
    same.
  • Score submission online remains the same.
  • Number of Writing tasks remains the same.
  • Content coverage is expanded, not changed, in
    Reading, Math, and Science.
  • Training will be provided on administration of
    the tasks.

21
Potential Results?
  • Refinements should
  • Enhance content coverage.
  • Improve likelihood that the IAA
  • will pass peer review.
  • Avoid rejection of the IAA
  • by the federal agency.

22
August 4-5, 2008
  • To enhance the quality and quantity of the IAA
    performance tasks
  • Item Writers will be working on
  • Reading
  • Math
  • Science
  • Number of Writing tasks is sufficient at this
    time.

23
IAA Scoring Validation Has Not Changed
  • Recruiting more Coordinators to serve as
  • Second scorers
  • Super raters
  • If interested, contact Pearl
  • at 217/782-4823 or pschneid_at_isbe.net

24
IAA 2009 Proposed Calendar
  • Jan. 26-30 Feb. 2-6, 2009
  • IAA training sessions throughout the state
  • Feb. 17, 2009
  • Tentative date for delivery of IAA test
    materials to schools/districts
  • February, 2009
  • Online scoring system IDs passwords
    distributed
  • March 9-27, 2009 Regular test window
