##### Presentation Transcript

1. Jensen Ranch Elementary Update on STAR data Update on API and AYP status How We Prepare Our Students Questions

2. State Assessments • California Standards Tests (CSTs) • CST results are used for: • API calculation (state) • AYP determination (federal) • Informing parents – STAR Report (comparable schools) • Informing teachers in planning instructional program • Informing CVUSD Multiple Measures • California Modified Assessment (CMA) grades 3-5

3. CA Standards Test - ELA% of students Proficient or Advanced

4. CST ELA Longitudinal% Proficient or Advanced

5. CST Mathematics Longitudinal% Proficient or Advanced

6. Jensen Ranch API History

7. How do our teachers prepare our students for STAR? • Course of study and sequence is driven by California standards, frameworks, and blueprints (we do it everyday!) • District common assessments (multiple measures) aligned to California Standards • Test Prep Strategies– teaching students how to “navigate” (using Test Ready materials) • Scheduling appropriately: breaks and snacks! • Remind students that the “test” is their time to “show what they know!”

8. Resources Released CST questions: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sr/css05rtq.asp http://starsamplequestions.org/

9. Resources • Word Analysis, Fluency, and Systematic Vocabulary Development (Performance Level: Advanced) – • Which word has more than one syllable? A   easily • B   dreams • C   freeze • D   patched • Results • 50% of students gave this response. (Correct Response) • 12% of students gave this response. • 10% of students gave this response. • 28% of students gave this response. • Note: Percentages may not total 00 due to rounding. • 1.3 Decoding and Word Recognition: decode two-syllable nonsense words and regular multi-syllable words.

10. What Can Parents Do? • Support the “show what you know” message • Extra sleep (no homework!) and hearty breakfast • Minimize absences and tardies • Jan thru May is “crunch time” • Best place for learners to test is in their learning environment • Majority of testing is May 7-9 (T, W, Th)

11. Beyond the Bubble Test

12. Selected Response • Students choose the answer (60%) • Not limited to multiple choice (40%) • Newer methodology allows for more complex question types and greater depth

13. Selected Response • The student now has to look at each part separately and decide whether 2/5 can take different forms • There are 16 ways to respond to this item. Guessing the correct combination is much less likely than the traditional 4 option selected-response item • Computer adaptive: questions will vary depending upon student accuracy

14. Text Complexity • Students will be required to justify their thinking with evidence from the text; no longer just multiple choice options • Passages will focus on non-fiction and non-fiction text features (charts, captions, etc.)
