Double Scored Writing
  • MME Social Studies Rubric
  • Same social studies prompt as used in past
  • Scored using MME Social Studies Rubric (same 5pt
    rubric as used in the past)
  • MME Persuasive Writing Rubric
  • MME Persuasive Writing Rubric (6pt rubric
    designed by OEAA for the MME)

13
Rubrics
  • Students will have in their MME social studies
    test booklets…
  • Only the 6pt score criteria of the MME Persuasive
    Writing Rubric, and
  • Only the 5pt score criteria of the MME Social
    Studies Rubric

In other words, in the test booklet students will
only see the top score criteria of each rubric
and not all the score criteria of each
rubric. However, during evaluation all the score
criteria of each rubric will be used to score the
same written response.
14
How much time will be allowed for the
double-scored-writing?
  • As of now, the double-scored-writing will be
    timed.
  • Students have 50 minutes to complete each part
  • Each part contains multiple choice items and one
    Civic Writing item
  • One Civic Writing item impacts the students MME
    score
  • The other Civic Writing item is evaluated as a
    field test item.
  • The writing on day one of ACT portion of the MME
    is also a timed test.

15
Comparing Rubrics
  • MME Persuasive Writing Rubric

MME Social Studies Rubric
?
Following is a comparison of the criteria to earn
the maximum points for each rubric.
16
Comparison
MME Persuasive Writing Rubric
MME Social Studies Rubric
  • A clear and supported statement of a position.
  • The essay takes a position on the issue in the
    prompt, shows clear understanding of that issue,
    and maintains focus across the response.

17
Comparison
MME Persuasive Writing Rubric
MME Social Studies Rubric
  • Position is supported by
  • A Core Democratic Value
  • Supporting social studies knowledge
  • Information from the Data Section.
  • Position is supported thoroughly and consistently
    with specific, logical reasons and/or examples.

18
Comparison
MME Persuasive Writing Rubric
MME Social Studies Rubric
  • A credible argument that someone with the
    opposite point of view could use and an
    explanation that reveals the flaw in his or her
    argument.
  • The response may demonstrate insight and
    complexity by evaluating various implications of
    the position and/or by responding to arguments
    that differ from the writers position.

19
Comparison
MME Persuasive Writing Rubric
MME Social Studies Rubric
  • Not Applicable
  • Organization is well controlled, with a logical
    sequence of reasons and strong transitions and
    relationships among reasons. The essay shows a
    good command of varied, precise language that
    supports meaning. Few, if any, errors distract
    the reader.

20
Analysis
  • Advantages
  • Fewer extended writing pieces (which in the past
    contributed to test fatigue)
  • Including writing technique should improve the
    quality of persuasive civic writing.

21
Double Scoring MME Spring 2007
  • All 11th grade students 2007
  • Seniors completing a retake in 2007 will take the
    Social Studies MEAP and not the Michigan Social
    Studies component of the MME and thus, double
    scoring does not apply
  • All students in 2008
  • Seniors completing a retake in 2008 will take the
    Michigan Social Studies component of the MME

Identifying and Analyzing Prompt
  • Using the Energy Conservation Prompt
  • Identify the critical attributes of the prompt
  • Document one or two ways to teach students how to
    quickly learn what information is presented in
    the prompt
  • Share what you documented with someone next to
    you
  • Be prepared to report out to the whole group
  • You have ten minutes. Go!

25
Critical Attributes of Social Studies Rubric
  • Review each of the five points of criteria
  • Score two sample papers
  • Key Phrase
  • The supporting prior knowledge, data, and core
    democratic value used by students must be
    explained in enough detail to show a clear
    connection to the position taken in order to
    receive credit.
