Cumulative Progress Indicators
Create the Assessment from the CPI
6.4.5 8th grade
Discuss the political and philosophical origins of the United States Constitution and its implementation in the 1790s.
6.4.6 12th grade
Compare and contrast the major philosophical and historical influences on the development of the Constitution (e.g., Washington’s Farewell Address (1796), Locke’s Second Treatise, the ideas of Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, and William Paterson).
Once you create an Assessment, then create the Lesson Objectives
Then, create the Lesson that will help you gather evidence to demonstrate that the students have met your objective.
NJ State Assessment writers (fellow teachers) structure assessment guidelines that will have students demonstrate their mastery of the CPI.
Test Creating companies, like ETS, hire teachers to write the questions.
Teachers are trained to write the questions directly from the CPIs
ETS then reviews the questions and answers, against the CPIs.
Questions are sent to the State of NJ for review.
The State of NJ then sends the questions back to the Assessment committee of teachers.
The committee matches every question with the CPIs.
They must Ok the question, reject the question, or send it back for modification.
Questions also go before a Sensitivity Committee.
The questions are then field tested.
If you create lessons from the CPIs, you’ll teach to the standards
That is the law!
You’ll be prepared for assessments
If you rely on the text book,
you are not teaching to the Standards.
You will not be prepared!
