Professional Senate

September 30, 2014

state board meeting follow up
State Board Meeting Follow-Up

Rule Waiver:

160-4-2-.11 Promotion, Placement, and Retention sections (3)(a), (3)(b), (3)(c) and 160-4-2-.13 Statewide Passing Score sections (2)(d), (2)(e), (2)(f)

Based upon the delay of scores in this first year of Georgia Milestones due to the necessary and required technical work involved, including setting achievement expectations (i.e., cut scores), specific provisions of these two Board Rules were waived for the 2014-2015 school year.

Additional information:

  • Academic Affairs and the Department of Accountability, Assessment, and Reporting Services are in the process of updating local regulations related to the calculation of final course grades for courses requiring a Georgia Milestones End Of Course assessment and for promotion criteria in grades 3, 5, and 8 for Georgia Milestones End Of Grade assessment.
  • Additional guidance regarding other purposes and uses of the end of course assessments, such as “test-outs”, retests, etc., will be forthcoming from GaDOE for the 2014-2015 school year.

Georgia Milestones: Unique Features

Features include:

  • Constructed-response items in ELA and mathematics, in addition to selected-response items
  • A writing component (in response to text) at every grade level and course within the ELA assessment;
  • Norm-referenced items in every grade and content area to complement the criterion-referenced information and to provide a national comparison; and
  • Transition to online administration over time, with online administration considered the primary mode of administration and paper-pencil back-up until transition is completed.

Addition of technology-enhanced items beginning in 2016-2017.

Blended: Criterion-Referenced and Norm-Referenced

Georgia Milestones will provide:

  • criterion-referenced performance information in the form of four performance levels, depicting students’ mastery of state standards
  • norm-referenced performance information in the form of national percentiles, depicting how students’ achievement compares to peers nationally

Note: To provide norm-referenced information, some norm-referenced items may not align to Georgia’s content standards. Only aligned NRT items will contribute to proficiency designations.

Item Types

  • Selected-Response [aka, multiple-choice]
    • all content areas
    • evidence-based selected response in ELA
  • Constructed-Response
    • ELA and mathematics
  • Extended-Response
    • ELA and mathematics
  • Technology Enhanced
    • to begin in SY 2016-2017

Constructed response is a general term for assessment items that require the student to generate a response as opposed to selecting a response. Extended-response items require more elaborate answers and explanations of reasoning. They allow for multiple correct answers and/or varying methods of arriving at the correct answer. Writing prompts and performance tasks are examples of extended-response items.

Excerpt from

David and the Phoenix

by Edward Ormondroyd

What do paragraphs 4 through 7 show about David? Use two details from the story to support your response.

Extended Response: 3rdGrade ELA

Sea Turtles

by Kathy Kranking

The author provides many details about how sea turtles are similar to and different from each other. How is a leatherback sea turtle similar to a green sea turtle? How are they different from each other? Use details from the passage to support your response.

In your response, be sure to

• explain how a leatherback sea turtle is similar to a green sea turtle

• explain how a leatherback sea turtle is different from a green sea turtle

• use details from the passage to support your response

georgia milestones writing
Georgia Milestones - Writing

Writing at Every Grade

  • All students will encounter a constructed-response item allowing for narrative prose, in response to text, within first or second section of the test.
  • Within the writing section of the test, students will read a pair of passages and complete a series of “warm-up” items:
      • 3 selected-response items asking about the salient features of each passage and comparing/contrasting between the two passages
      • 1 constructed-response item requiring linking the two passages
      • 1 writing prompt in which students must cite evidence to support their conclusions, claims, etc.

Warning: Students who simply rewrite excerpts from the passage(s) to illustrate their point(s) will not receive favorable scores.
