Transition assessment in Spring 2014 is the same as we have always planned
The transitional test will serve as the backbone for the new Kansas College and Career Ready Assessment
The core machine-scorable part of the test will be parallel to what was administered in 2014, but we will refresh the item pool.
After analyzing the field-test items, we will create the best form possible that includes all features of our future assessment.
Now we have a fully enhanced test that covers all of the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards.
The test will be adaptive to allow students to be measured on items close to their ability level.
Adaptivity should help students who used to take the KAMM. They will be assessed on grade-level, but with easy items.
We want Kansas educator and stakeholder fingerprints all over these new assessments
Students watch “I have a dream” and read an essay by Malcolm X. They are then asked to write an essay comparing and contrasting the two approaches to the civil rights movement. They may be asked to define and give examples of civil disobedience and discuss its efficacy.HS Example
Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/ experiments, or technical processes.
