Connecting the DPI Dots: CCSS, Balanced Assessment and Educator Effectiveness UpdatesJanuary 2012

our goal
Our Goal
  • The Common Core State Standards are the impetus for:
      • A more connected, systems-change approach to school/district innovation and improvement
      • Clear definitions of “high quality” and “college and career readiness”
      • True instructional change for ALL educators and instructional leaders
      • Increased student LEARNING
school wide implementation review
School-wide Implementation Review
  • An infrastructure is in place that ensures that every student accesses grade level CCSS.
  • Educators and administrators know and understand the content of the CCSS.
  • Literacy strategies are used to deepen students’ understanding of each discipline.
  • A comprehensive system is in place so students develop the dispositions and skills to prepare them for college and career.
  • Formative and summative classroom assessments are used to gauge student progress and make instructional decisions.
items currently in progress
Items currently in progress
  • CCSS School-wide Implementation Review

changes in assessment
Changes in Assessment
  • We know the WKCE, WAA-SwD, and ACCESS for ELLs assessments are going away.
  • What will replace them? How will the new assessments be different?
assessment system components
Assessment System Components

Summative assessments benchmarked to college and career readiness

Common Core State Standards specify K-12 expectations for college and career readiness

Teachers can access

formative processes and tools to improve instruction

All students leave high school college and career ready

Interim assessments that are flexible, open, and provide actionable feedback

assessment system components1
Assessment System Components

Assessment system that balances summative, interim, and formative components for ELA and mathematics:

Summative Assessment (Computer Adaptive)

  • Mandatory comprehensive assessment in grades 3–8 and 11 (testing window within the last 12 weeks of the instructional year) that supports accountability and measures growth
  • Selected response, short constructed response, extended constructed response, technology enhanced, and performance tasks

Interim Assessment (Computer Adaptive)

  • Optional comprehensive and content-cluster assessment
  • Learning progressions
  • Available for administration throughout the year
  • Selected response, short constructed response, extended constructed response, technology enhanced, and performance tasks

Formative Processes and Tools

  • Optional resources for improving instructional learning
  • Assessment literacy

guiding principles

An educator evaluation system must deliver information that

Guides effective educational practice that is aligned with student learning and development.

Documents evidence of effective educator practice.

Documents evidence of student learning.

Informs appropriate professional development.

Informs educator preparation programs.

Supports a full range of human resource decisions.

Is credible, valid, reliable, comparable, and uniform across districts.

Guiding Principles
definition of effective educators

Effective Teacher:An effective teacher consistently uses educational practices that foster the intellectual, social and emotional growth of children, resulting in measurable growth that can be documented in meaningful ways.

Effective Principal: An effective principal shapes school strategy and educational practices that foster the intellectual, social and emotional growth of children, resulting in measurable growth that can be documented in meaningful ways.

equivalency review process
Equivalency Review Process
  • Districts may create their own rubrics of educator practice.
  • Districts must apply to the State Superintendent for approval through an equivalency review process.
educator practice

Teacher Practice

Each component should be evaluated on multiple sources of evidence. These could include:

  • Observations of teacher practice
  • Review of documents
  • Surveys/data
  • Discussions with the teacher

Principal Practice

Each component should be evaluated on multiple sources of evidence. These could include:

  • Observations of principal practice
  • Review of documents
  • Interviews with stakeholders
  • Surveys/data
  • Discussions with the principal

  • Asterisks indicate a mismatch between educator’s practice performance and student outcomes and requires
  • a focused review to determine why the mismatch is occurring and what, if anything, needs to be corrected.

Developing: does not meet expectations and requires additional support and directed action

Effective: areas of strength and improvement addressed through professional development

Exemplary: expand expertise through professional development and use expertise in leadership
