### GLE Awareness Session

Spring 2004

Rhode Island Department of Education

Goals of this Training:
• Explain history of grade level expectations (GLEs)
• Discuss the purpose of and use of GLEs
• Identify and discuss GLE implementation plan
A Short History
• 1983 A Nation at Risk
• 1990 States develop frameworks
• State assessments align with frameworks
• Development of state accountability systems
• NCLB Requirements
What is the New England Compact?
• Coordinated efforts to address NCLB by Commissioners of Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont
• New England Compact developed New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) Grade Level Expectations for grades 2-8 (NH, RI, and VT)
• Content and skills students need to know and be able to do at a specific grade
Mathematics Strands
• Number and Operation
• Geometry and Measurement
• Functions and Algebra
• Data, Statistics, and Probability
Mathematics

M–DSP–4–2 Analyzes patterns, trends, or distributions in data in a variety of contexts by determining or usingmeasures of central tendency (median or mode), or range.

M–DSP–5–2Analyzes patterns, trends, or distributions in data in a variety of contexts by determining or using measures of central tendency (mean, median, or mode) or range to analyze situations,or to solve problems.

Specific indicators for assessment at this grade

What are the four mathematics strands?

What do the conjunctions “and”, “or”, and “orsc” mean?

How many stems are there in the Data, Statistics, and Probability strand?

What types of representations will students use to organize and display data in grade 3?

What are the six reading content clusters?

Which Reading GLE is only assessed at the end of grades 2, 3, and 4?

What are the five writing content clusters?

What are the three modes of writing that will be assessed at grades 5 and 8?

A Set of GLEs

Focused, coherent, and developmentally appropriate instruction without narrowing the curriculum

Grade Level Expectations Provide Clear Expectations to:
• Develop common state assessments
• Develop local assessments
• Support the development of district curricula
NECAP
• New England Common Assessment Program

New Hampshire, Vermont and Rhode Island common assessment.

Comprehensive Assessment System

Informal and formal data about student learning not only shape instruction but also determine its effectiveness.Tomlinson (Feb. 2003)

Building Blocks of the NECAP Assessment

• NECAP GLEs
• Distribution of emphasis across the content strands
• Depth of Knowledge (Webb)
• Universal Design – all kids

Distribution of Emphasis for Mathematics Assessment

Building Blocks of the NECAP Assessment

• NECAP GLEs
• Distribution of emphasis across the content strands
• Depth of Knowledge (Webb)
• Universal Design – all kids
Levels of Depth of Knowledgeby Norman Webb
• Level 1 Recall
• Level 2 Skill/Concept
• Level 3 Strategic Thinking
• Level 4 Extended Thinking

Elements of Universally Designed Assessments

• Inclusive assessment population
• Precisely defined constructs
• Accessible, non-biased items
• Amenable to

accommodations

4.5

Amy, Eric, and Kayla decide to share a pie that costs \$7.50. The 3 friends will split the cost of the pie equally. Eric used his calculator to find how much each of them should pay. The calculator display shows Eric’s answer.

In the box below, explain why you think Eric’s answer is or is not reasonable

Revised item – Simultaneously dealing with language, context, and the mathematical construct being assessed.

Three friends buy a pie for \$7.50. They split the cost of the pie equally.

Your classmate says, “Each friend should pay \$4.50.”

Should each friend pay \$4.50? Explain why or why not.
