Mathematics and English/Language Arts

Mississippi Educational Technology Leaders

Association Spring Meeting

May 5, 2011


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


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

3


CCSSO/NGA Process

4


Sample from CCSS -Mathematics


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


MS Math 4th grade

Competency 1 Objective i

Recall multiplication and division facts.

Competency 1 Objective f

Model and identifyequivalent fractions.

Mathematics Alignment Examples

CCSS Math 3rd grade

Page 23, 3.OA, #7

Fluently multiply and divide within 100.

Page 24, 3.NF, #3a

Understand two fractions as equivalent.

Cont.


Mathematics Alignment Examples

CCSS Math 4th grade

Page 31, 4.MD, #3

Apply the area formula for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems.

MS Math 5th grade

Competency 4 Objective c

Use formula to estimate and calculate the area of a rectangle.


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

Sample from CCSS English Language Arts

Reading Standards for Informational Text K-5

RI


Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects

Key design considerations:

Sections divided by Strands for K-5 and 6-12

  • Reading

  • Writing

  • Speaking and Listening

  • Language


MS ELA 3rd grade

Competency 2

Objective b, b1, b6

Analyze texts in order to identify, understand, infer, or synthesize information.

-answer and generate questions

-identify cause and effect as stated in text

ELA Alignment Examples

CCSS ELA 3rd grade

Page 14, RI, #1

Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, explicitly using the text as the basis for the answers.

Cont.


ELA Alignment Examples

CCSS ELA 3rd grade

Page 21, W, #5

With guidance and support from peers and adults, strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing.

MS ELA 3rd grade

Competency 3 Objective a

Use an appropriate composing process (e.g., planning, drafting, revising, editing, and publishing/sharing) to compose or edit.


Alignment of CCSS English Language Arts (ELA) and MS ELA

  • Initial alignment study done “in-house” and additional study done by SEDL

  • Overall alignment isgood

    -Few specifics in the CCSS are not addressed

    in the MS ELA Framework or not addressed

    at the same grade level

    -Many of the MS ELA Framework

    objectives and sub-objectives are not

    mentioned in the Common Core

  • Rigor is comparable

Common Core State Standards

High School


Common CoreHigh School Mathematics

  • CCSS Grade 8 is comparable to the current MS Algebra I course.

  • High school standards require students to practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world situations.


Common CoreHigh School Mathematics

High school standards are listed in conceptual categories :

-number and quantity

-algebra

-functions

-modeling

-geometry

-statistics and probability


Common Core High School ELA

  • Individual grade levels for grades 6-8

  • Two-year grade band for grades 9-10

  • Two-year grade band for grades 11-12


Common Core State Standards English Language Arts

Section for grades 6-12:

Literacy standards in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects


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, collegecourse placement into credit-bearing classes, and/or college entrance.

Center for K – 12 Assessment & Performance Management at ETS


Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)

  • ReceivedRace to the Top funds to help support states’ efforts to transition to the CCSS and assessments

  • Formed the Assessment Design and Development Committee

  • Established timeline

  • Met in Dec. 2010 to begin work on test specifications

  • Met in Feb. 2011 with content specialists and post-secondary reps


Basic PARCC Timeline

2010-2011 Development/approval of common policies/procedures

2011-2012 Initial item and task development, piloting of components

2011-2012 Development of PD resources & online platform

2012-2013 Field testing

2013-2014 Field testing

FOCUSED

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.

    • 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

    PARCC: Focused Assessment 3

    75%

    • 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

    Status of MS Implementation

    • Working with the RESAs to provide sessions on CCSS for leadership teams followed by Train-the-Trainer sessions

    • Participating in training sessions offered by national organizations

    • Identifying available resources to assist districts/schools

    • Continuing relationship with PARCC Consortium and CCSSO to allow MS to benefit from collaboration with other states
