What is the CCSS Initiative?
  • An initiative of the National Governors
    Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State
    School Officers (CCSSO)
  • A significant and historic opportunity for states
    to collectively develop and adopt a core set of
    academic standards in Mathematics and
    English/Language Arts

2
3
What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
  • Fewer, clearer, and higher
  • Aligned with college and work expectations
  • Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking
    and application of knowledge
  • Evidence- and/or research-based
  • Internationally benchmarked

CCSSO/NGA Process
Fall 2009 -Released draft of College/Career Readiness Standards to states and public
Jan. 2010 -Released several drafts of K-12 Standards to states
Feb. 2010 -Released draft K-12 Standards to the public
June 2, 2010 -Released Final K-12 Standards

Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
  • Key design considerations
  • Individual grade levels in K-8
  • Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers,
    addition, subtraction, multiplication, division,
    fractions, and decimals
  • Solid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry,
    algebra, and probability and statistics

Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework
  • Initial alignment study done in-house and
    additional study done by SEDL
  • Overall alignment is not good
  • -Many specifics in the CCSS are addressed in
    the MS Math Framework but at a lower
  • grade level(s)
  • -Several of the MS Math Framework
  • objectives are not mentioned in the
  • Common Core
  • CCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math
    Framework

Race to the Top (RttT) Assessment Proposals
  • The Process
  • Proposals were due from multi-state consortia on
    June 23, 2010
  • Awards were made in September, 2010
  • New Consortia tests to replace current state NCLB
    tests in 2014-2015
  • Two Comprehensive Assessment Proposals Funded
  • Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for
    College and Careers (PARCC)
  • 26 states, 31 million students K-12
  • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
  • 31 states, 21 million students K-12
  • Note 12 states currently in both and 6 states in
    neither

RttT Assessment Program Requirements
  • Build upon shared standards for college/career
    readiness
  • Measure individual growth as well as proficiency
  • Measure the extent each student is on track, at
    each grade level tested, toward college/career
    readiness by high school completion, and provide
    information that is useful in informing
  • Teaching, learning, and program improvement
  • Determinations of school effectiveness
  • Determinations of educator effectiveness for use
    in evaluations and provision of support to
    teachers/principals
  • Determinations of individual student
    college/career readiness, through high school
    exit decisions, college course placement into
    credit-bearing classes, and/or college entrance.

PARCC Two Types of
Summative Assessments
  • One to three tasks that assess a
  • few keystone standards/topics
  • Given at three points during the
  • school year, near the end of quarters
  • Results within 2 weeks to inform
  • instruction and intervention
  • Taken on computer, with mixed
  • item types
  • Scored entirely by computer for
  • fast results

Scores from both focused end-of-yr.
assessments will be combined for annual
accountability score.

PARCC Focused Assessments 1 and 2
  • In a single session/class period, students in
    grades 3 - 11 will
  • ELA Read texts, draw evidence to form
    conclusions, and prepare a written analysis
  • Math For each of 1 or 2 essential topics
    (standards or clusters of standards), complete 1
    to 3 constructed response tasks

Management at ETS
26
PARCC Focused Assessment 3
  • Over several sessions/class periods, students
    will complete a project-like task that draws on a
    range of skills. Examples
  • ELA Locate digital information, evaluate
    and
  • select sources, and compose an
    essay or
  • research paper
  • Math Perform a multi-step performance task
  • that requires application of
    mathematical
  • skills and reasoning and may
    require
  • technological tools
  • Speaking/Listening task Conducted in
    classroom,
  • not used for accountability,
    scored by teacher.
