Curriculum & Assessment Foundation


Who should decide what students need to learn in Chemistry?


  • Agreement on learning objectives and the use of common assessments to share best practices is a powerful tool to improve student achievement

District leader

  • It is more efficient and potentially more effective for a district to develop standards-based curriculum

State leader

  • Quality implementation of the CCSS across all districts and schools requires the state to take on an enhanced role
the quiet revolution why should the njdoe develop a model curriculum
The Quiet Revolution: Why should the NJDOE develop a “Model” Curriculum?

Common Core State Standards

  • Fewer, clearer, more rigorous
  • Internationally benchmarked


  • Leverage state and nation-wide expertise (46 States and DC)
  • PARCC (23 States and DC)

Continuous improvement

  • Model 1.0 followed by Model 2.0

The CCSS Difference: Grade 7 ELA

Clearer …

Before: NJCCCS (2004)

1. Produce written work and oral work that demonstrate comprehension of informational materials.

After: CCSS (2010)

2. Determine two or more central ideas in a text and analyze their development over the course of the text; provide an objective summary of the text.

the ccss difference grade 8 math
The CCSS Difference: Grade 8 Math

Before: NJCCCS (2004)

Understand and apply the Pythagorean Theorem.

After: CCSS (2010)

Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.

the ccss difference grade 3 5 ela integration of knowledge and ideas
The CCSS Difference: Grade 3-5 ELA: Integration of Knowledge and ideas

Grade 3: Compare and contrast the most important points and key details presented in two texts on the same topic

Grade 4: Integrate information from two texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgably

Grade 5: Integrate information from several texts on the same topic in order to write or speak about the subject knowledgably.

college readiness grade 11 ela
College Readiness : Grade 11 ELA

Write arguments to support claim(s) in an analysis of substantive topics or texts, using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence

Introduce precise knowledgeable claims(s), establish the significance of the claim(s), distinguish the claim(s) from alternate or opposing claims, and create an organization that logically sequences claim(s), counterclaim(s), reasons and evidence.

Develop claim(s) and counterclaim(s) fairly and thoroughly, supplying the most relevant evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases.

ela literacy 3 shifts
ELA/Literacy: 3 shifts
  • Regular practice with complex text and its academic vocabulary
  • Building knowledge through content-rich nonfiction and informational text
  • Reading and writing grounded in evidence from text

Note: Beyond ELA

text dependent or not
Text-Dependent or Not

The novel Sarah Plain and Tall is a great book to illustrate what things were like in the past.

Possible center activities:

Put out a very simple pattern like an apron, or place mat and have the students trace, cut out and then sew (by hand) the item. My students said overwhelmingly "I can't imagine sewing all of my clothes like that!"

Have a wheat grinder, which the kids use to grind wheat into flour. We then use it to make scones from scratch later on. We made butter to go on the scones by putting cream and salt into a jar and shaking it for a very long time.

mathematics 3 shifts
Mathematics: 3 shifts
  • Focus: Focus strongly where the standards focus.
  • Coherence: Links major topics across grades
  • Rigor: Requires fluency, application, and deep understanding

the limits of common standards and common assessments
The limits of Common Standards andCommon Assessments
  • Common Core State Standards are critical, but just the first step
  • Common Assessments aligned to the Common Core will help ensure the new standards truly reach every classroom
  • Quality Implementation of aligned curriculum is required for students to reap the benefits of new standards

“Transitional Assessments”

nj ask transitional assessments
NJ ASK Transitional Assessments
  • Content on the NJ ASK will reflect, as closely as possible, the Common Core State Standards
    • Alignment
    • Depth
    • We do not expect that our transitional assessments will be perfectly aligned to PARCC assessments
    • Continually modify as more information from PARCC becomes available (i.e. content frameworks)
