  1. STAAR Update Instructional Leadership Network October 2, 2013 GE/October2013

  2. Agenda • STAAR overview • Using Released Tests • Elementary/Secondary • Reading • Writing • Math • Social Studies • Science

  3. STAAR Overview What is tested and how

  4. STAAR testing can be a scary beast!!

  5. Our goal is to help you tame the beast and get control of STAAR!!

  6. Grades tested • Elementary • 3rd grade – Reading, Math • 4th grade – Reading, Math, Writing • 5th grade – Reading, Math, Science • HB 866 – no waiver granted • Secondary • 6th grade – Reading, Math • 7th grade – Reading, Math, Writing • 8th grade – Reading, Math, Science, Social Studies • End of course exams reduced to: • Algebra, Biology, US History, English I and II (New combined exam)

  7. Special Education • Triangle of accommodations being revised and reposted • New Standardized Oral Administration (grades 4, 5 and 7) • Modified exam versions administered for last time in Spring 2014 • STAAR-Alt tasks being built and reviewed • Next steps are under review

  8. STAAR L and STAAR Spanish • STAAR L • Linguistically accommodated tests in Math, Science and Social Studies • Computer administration • STAAR • Reading and Writing, limited accommodations • STAAR Spanish • Grades 3-5 all subjects

  9. August 2013 TEA Releases the STAAR test questions

  10. Released questions • STAAR http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/staar/testquestions/ • STAAR Modified http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.assessment/special-ed/staarm/released-questions/

  11. STAAR Tests • Criterion referenced – so studying the criteria is key to long term successful teaching • TEA notes that tests should be used for teachers to study for use in instruction • “The resources on this website provide information to familiarize Texas educators and the public with the design and format of the STAAR program. The information is intended to help educators understand how the new STAAR program measures the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum standards. “

  12. Research shows…. “A test is essentially a sample of questions or activities that reflect a large body of knowledge and mental processes associated with an academic subject area. It is highly impractical to design a test that includes all of the problems that a student could ever do in each content area. Therefore, state tests are samples of possible questions from each area. All state tests are limited samples of what students are required to know in areas such as language arts, mathematics, science, etc. There are large numbers of questions that can appear on future forms of these instruments. A teacher would not be able to address all the possible questions, nor should the teacher attempt that task. However, school districts and teachers should endeavor to understand the delineation of each subject area. School districts are under pressure to perform well on state tests and often use a test preparation strategy of giving students sample tests from commercially prepared workbooks or state released items to get ready for state tests. Although this is one strategy that can be useful for providing general information regarding student strengths and weaknesses as related to the samples, it should not be the only method used by teachers. The strategy itself, does little to educate teachers about how to use and understand state tests, standards, and test specifications.” Tienken & Wilson, 2001

  28. Writing Composition Scores

  29. Region 12 Data 65% of students scored 4 or below 74% of students scored 4 or below

  30. Writing Prompts

  31. Implications for Instruction • Knowledge of TEKS • Vertical Alignment • Study of STAAR Released Tests / Writing Rubrics • Academic Vocabulary • Guided Reading / Writing Conferences • Independent Reading and Writing • Across Content Areas

  32. ESC 12 is here to support… • Balanced Literacy • Writers’ Workshop • Figure 19 TEKS: Reading Strategies • Targeted Genres • Vocabulary • Attacking STAAR Writing Rubrics • Emergent Reading • Struggling Readers • Customized Sessions

  33. Mathematics Jared Disher jdisher@esc12.net

  34. Data Details – Process Matters Questions Dual Coded to Process Standards • Blueprint says 75% Questions per Assessment In Math (Grades 3-8) Test Data

  35. Data Details – Not all Process Standards are Equally Assessed!! Each Grade Level (3-8) has 6 process standards (13|9) (13 items in 2012|9 items in 2013)

  36. 5th grade snapshot Question Ratio Readiness : Supporting 3:1

  37. Revised Math TEKS Implementation Grades K-8, 2014-2015 Grades 9-12, 2015-2016

  38. Alignment of STAAR with New Mathematics TEKS

  39. MATH Strategies

  40. Roll a Solution Strategy 1 • Create an anchor chart like the following:

  41. Elementary Example5th STAAR Math • Alex used blue, red and green pieces of plastic to make a design. • He used 84 green pieces of plastic. • He used 20 more green pieces of plastic than blue pieces of plastic. • He used 15 more red pieces of plastic than blue pieces of plastic. • What is the number of red pieces of plastic Alex used? • A 79 • B 89 • C 49 • D 119

  42. Secondary Example7th Grade STAAR Math Mr. Stein is purchasing 2.25 pounds of meat that costs $2.80 per pound. How much change should Mr. Stein receive if he gives the cashier $20.00? F $6.30 G $13.70 H $14.95 J $2.52

  43. 4 Frame Item Analysis Strategy 2 • Start with test questions (STAAR, Benchmark, Unit Test…) with concerning data! Provide the data! • A question coded to a Readiness Standard & Process Standard would be ideal! • Divide students into groups of three – each group gets a question. • MODEL THE STRATEGY! • Class Presentations!
