Common Core State Standards
  • Define the knowledge and skills students need for
    college and career
  • Developed voluntarily and cooperatively by
    states more than 40 states have adopted
  • Provide clear, consistent standards in English
    language arts/Literacy and mathematics

A Next Generation of Assessments
US Dept. of Ed has funded two consortia of states
with development grants for new assessments
aligned to Common Core State Standards
  • Rigorous assessment of progress toward college
    and career readiness
  • Common cut scores across all Consortium states
  • Provide both achievement and growth information
  • Valid, reliable, and fair for all students,
    except those with significant cognitive
    disabilities
  • Administered online
  • Use multiple measures
  • Operational in 2014-15 school year

A National Consortium of States
  • 25 states representing 40 of K-12 students
  • 21 governing, 4 advisory states
  • Washington state is fiscal agent
  • WestEd provides project management services

A Balanced Assessment System
Summative College and career readiness
assessments for accountability
Teachers and schools have information and tools
they need to improve teaching and learning
All students leave high school college and
career ready
Common Core State Standards specify K-12
expectations for college and career readiness
Interim Flexible and open assessments, used for
actionable feedback
Formative resources Supporting classroom-based
assessments to improve instruction

Class of 2013 Percentage Meeting the CR
Benchmark on PSAT and SAT
What are the College and Career Readiness
Benchmarks? The College and Career Readiness
Benchmarks are the scores that students should
meet or exceed to be considered on track to be
college ready. They are one part of a series of
indicators that help educators gauge college
readiness at different points in a students
career. The benchmarks are associated with a 65
percent likelihood of achieving a B- first year
college grade point average. The College and
Career Readiness Benchmarks should not be used
for tracking purposes, to discourage students
from pursuing college, or to keep students from
participating in rigorous courses.

represent an inclusive testing cohort.

Critical Reading
Skill Areas With Lowest Performance
Skill Percent Correct Suggestion from SAT Skills Insight
Understanding Literary Elements Understand literary elements such as plot, setting and characterization. 40 When reading a novel, short story or play, try to identify the different ways authors create character. What is revealed about a character through his or her dialogue and interactions with other characters?
Reasoning and Inference Understand assumptions, suggestions and implications in reading passages and draw informed conclusions. 42 When reading a longer text, notice how the author develops an idea. Think about how the idea is introduced and how the idea is developed throughout the text. When reading a text, think about why the author chose to write it. Consider both what the author says in the text and what can be inferred.
49
Mathematics
Skill Areas With Lowest Performance
Skill Percent Correct Suggestion from SAT Skills Insight
Algebra and Functions Solve problems using algebraic expressions and symbols to represent relationships, patterns, and functions of different types. 45 Formulate and solve problems involving proportions Solve multistep problems involving linear and quadratic relationships Use and interpret graphs, including graphs of step functions Solve problems involving algebraic inequalities Evaluate an operation in three variables represented by unfamiliar symbols
Geometry and Measurement Solve problems based on understanding the properties of shapes, such as triangles and circles, and the spatial relationships between angles and lines. 43 Recognize and use the following - Simple inscribed and circumscribed figures - The Pythagorean Theorem - Coordinate geometry (e.g., slope calculations) - Parallelism and perpendicularity - Two- and three-dimensional figures Interpret and solve two-step problems involving geometric proportions
50
Writing
Skill Areas With Lowest Performance
Skill Percent Correct Suggestion from SAT Skills Insight
Managing Grammatical Structures Used to Modify or Compare Understand correct use of adjectives or adverbs, comparative structures (such as neither and nor), and phrases used to modify or compare. 45 When reading, choose a paragraph and identify the adjectives and adverbs in the sentences and the words they modify. When writing, check to see that adjectives are used to modify nouns and that adverbs are used to modify verbs. When reading, focus on sentences that contain comparative phrases (e.g., as strong as or more fit than). When writing, check to see that appropriate structures are used to compare things and ideas.
Recognizing Correctly Formed Sentences Recognize correct sentence structure. 46 In your reading, pay attention to the parts of speech and how they agree in well-formed sentences notice modifying words and phrases and how they function when used correctly and note the relationships between phrases and clauses in well-formed sentences. In your own writing, make sure that subjects agree in number with their associated verbs and that main verbs are used to construct complete sentences that pronouns agree in number, gender and person with their logical antecedents and that verb forms are used consistently and logically.
