Content expectations goal

Content Expectations Goal

These expectations were developed to provide a description of what students should know and be able to do in Scienceby the end of seventh grade to prepare them for a successful high school experience


Content expectations goal1

Content Expectations Goal

The Expectations provide a foundation for

curriculum and assessment development

that represents rigorous and relevant

learning for ALL students.


Criteria for our work

Criteria for Our Work

  • RIGOR: What is the level of intellectual demand in the standards?

    • challenging enough to equip students to succeed at the next grade level

    • essential core content of a discipline; its key concepts and how they relate to each other


Criteria for our work1

Criteria for Our Work

  • CLARITY: Are the standards clearly written and presented in a logical, easy-to use format?

    • more than just plain and jargon-free prose

    • widely understood and accepted by teachers, parents, school boards and others who have a stake in the quality of schooling including university faculties that will prepare teachers to convey the standards and later receive those teachers’ students


Criteria for our work2

Criteria for Our Work

  • SPECIFICITY: Are the standards specific enough to convey the level of performance expected of students?

    • enough detail to help teachers design their courses

    • address the given teachers’ time for instruction


Criteria for our work3

Criteria for Our Work

  • FOCUS: Have tough choices been made about what content is the most important for students to learn?

    • priorities of facts, concepts and skills that should be emphasized at each grade level


Criteria for our work4

Criteria for Our Work

  • PROGRESSION: Do knowledge and skills build clearly and sensibly on previous learning and increase in intellectual demand from year to year?

    • move from simple to complex, from concrete to abstract

    • prevent needless repetition from grade to grade


Criteria for our work5

Criteria for Our Work

  • COHERENCE: Do the standards convey a unified vision of the discipline, and do they establish connections among the major areas of study?

    • reflect a coherent structure of the discipline and/or reveal significant relationships among the strands and how the study of one complements the study of another.

    • States should eventually be able to “back-map” from the high school Academic Standards to a progression of benchmarks that middle and elementary school students would need to reach in order to be “on track” for college and work.

Surveys

Surveys

There are two survey formats in the following slides.

Grade Span Survey – Looks at the overall flow and connection between grades. This survey will take much time. It is recommended to print the survey first, then go back into the online survey to input the data.

Grade Level Survey – Looks at an individual grade. Much shorter survey.

There are links to print out the elementary (K-4) grade span survey, the middle school (5-7) grade span survey, individual grade level surveys, the entire K-7 GLCE document, or the grade specific expectation documents.

Note: Once you start the Zoomerang survey, you cannot leave. If you exit the survey, you will have to restart from the beginning.
