Common Core State Standards

Mathematics and English/Language Arts

Association Spring Meeting

May 5, 2011

• 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

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

Competency 1 Objective i

Recall multiplication and division facts.

Competency 1 Objective f

Model and identifyequivalent fractions.

Mathematics Alignment Examples

Page 23, 3.OA, #7

Fluently multiply and divide within 100.

Page 24, 3.NF, #3a

Understand two fractions as equivalent.

Cont.

Page 31, 4.MD, #3

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

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

-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

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

• Writing

• Speaking and Listening

• Language

Competency 2

Objective b, b1, b6

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

-identify cause and effect as stated in text

ELA Alignment Examples

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.

Page 21, W, #5

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

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

-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

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

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

Center for K – 12 Assessment & Performance Management at ETS

• 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.

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

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

2014-2015 New summative assessments in use

Summer 2015 Setting of common achievement standards

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

• 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 Assessments

• 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

MDE Timeline for AssessmentsReview and Adoption

March: Conducted alignment study of draft Common Core State Standards and MS frameworks

June: Received SBE approval to begin APA Process

Aug.: Received SBEapproval (completed APA Process)

June-Oct.: Conducted alignment study of final Common Core State Standards and MS frameworks

Nov.-Mar.: Determining implementation and training options for 2011-12 and beyond

31

Preferred Implementation Scenario Assessments

Development, Training, and Follow-up Activities will occur

in parallel tracks across all years.

Next Steps for MDE Assessments

• Continue to meet with stakeholder groups (K-12 and IHL) to:

- review findings of the alignment study (DONE)

- develop a crosswalk (IN PROGRESS)

- determine 9-12 courses (IN PROGRESS)

• Conduct regional awareness sessions & webinars (DONE)

• Plan work with the regional laboratories, technical assistance providers, and other groups (IN PROGRESS)

• Format the CCSS to reflect the structure of the MS Curriculum Frameworks (TBD)

• Revise/develop instructional materials (teaching strategies, resources, & assessment aids) and offer training(TBD)

• Determine which policies/procedures need adjustment (TBD)

• Plan transition to new assessments (IN PROGRESS)

• Continue working with PARCC to implement assessments (IN PROGRESS)

What to expect from NGA and CCSSO Assessments

• Developing an implementation guide

• Meeting with textbook publishers

• Developing example tasks, suggested texts, & student samples (timeline TBD)

• Planning to do work around birth to 5 year olds to have a seamless set of standards

• Working on Science and Social Studies
