Computer Skills Needed For GED 2014
  • Clicking
  • Drag and Drop (Clicking catch and release)
  • Scrolling (Directed clicking)
  • Basic keyboarding (Typing)

Types of Questions
  • Multiple choice items (MC)
  • Multiple select (MS)
  • Fill in the blank (FIB)
  • Brief short answer items (SA) (Science)
  • Several different types of technology-enhanced
    items
  • Drop down items embedded in passages
  • One 45-minute extended response item (RLA)
  • One 25-minute extended response item (Social
    Studies)

Included in all 4 content area tests
  • Multiple choice (MC)
  • Four options instead of five
  • RLA only content area where each MC item refers
  • to a passage
  • Multiple select (MS)
  • Test takers must select two or three correct
    responses to
  • receive full credit (worth two points).
  • MS may be a better measure of a test takers
    understanding of
  • the relationship between details and
    conclusions.

(continued)
  • Fill in the blank (FIB)
  • FIB can be used when potential answers have
    little variability.
  • On the Mathematical Reasoning Test, test takers
  • can enter an equation using keyboard symbols or
  • the character selector.
  • Drop down
  • Items with multiple response options embedded
    directly
  • within a text via a drop down menu
  • Designed to mimic the editing process as
    authentically
  • as possible

13
Several (two actually) different types of
technologically advanced items
  • Hot spot (not used with RLA Test)
  • Items consist of a graphic image with virtual
  • sensors placed strategically within the image
  • These items are answered by clicking the virtual
  • sensor
  • Drag-and-drop
  • Items that require test takers to move small
    images, words,
  • or numerical expressions to designated drop
    targets
  • on a computer screen
  • Uses of this type of question could include
    making graphs,
  • sequencing information, and classifying data

Thats not writing thats just typing
  • Short answer (SA) (only used with the Science
    Test)
  • Items provide opportunities for test takers to
    demonstrate a
  • wide range of cognitive strategies as they
    compose their own
  • brief responses
  • SA items will be scored on a three point scale
    either
  • empirically (just the facts), or holistically
    (summarizing or
  • synthesizing information) depending on the
    question
  • Extended response (ER) (45 minutes on the
  • RLA Test, and 25 minutes on the Social Studies
    Test)
  • ER items will require test-takers to analyze one
    or more source
  • texts in order to produce a writing sample.
  • (continued)

16

17
(continued)
  • ERs will be scored by a three-trait rubric
  • The RLA ER will have a 12 point scale
  • The Social Studies ER will have a seven point
    scale
  • The three wise
    traits
  • Analysis of Arguments and Use of Evidence (What
    did
  • you conclude?)
  • Development of Ideas and Organizational Structure
  • (Did you use paragraphs?)
  • Clarity and Command of Standard English
    Conventions
  • (Hows your grammar?)

Webbs Depth of Knowledge Model (DOK)
Difficulty v. Complexity The perceived difficulty
of a test item will vary among test-takers the
complexity of an item is more consistent among
test-takers.
  • Four Levels (but were only using three)
  • 1. Recall basic facts
  • 2. Skills and concepts put information to use
  • multi-step process
  • 3. Strategic concepts justify the response plan
  • and organize information

20
The Four Content Areas
21
DOK similarities across all four tests
GED assessment philosophy There is a
foundational core of academic skills and content
knowledge that must be acquired in order for an
adult to be prepared to enter a job, a training
program, or an entry level, credit bearing
postsecondary course.
Roughly 80 (50 on the Mathematical Reasoning)
of test items will be written to DOK levels two
and three. Texts will come from both academic
and workforce contexts.

RLA Test and DOK
Three essential components The ability to read
closely The ability to write clearly The
ability to use proper grammar 75 of texts will
be non-fiction 25 literature One 45 minute ER
