transition to new testing
Transition to new testing

Spring 2010

  • First year of grades 3-8 Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) and High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE)
  • New grades 3-8 mathematics assessments aligned to new content standards
  • Began online testing in grades 6-8 in reading and math

Coming up...Spring 2011

  • End-of-course math exams; new Gr 5 & 8 science exams
  • Online testing: Add grades 4 and 5 in reading and math and grades 5 and 8 in science
math test changes
Math test changes
  • In Spring 2010, grades 3-8 MSP tested students on new math learning standards
  • 2010 results set new baseline for grades 3-8 MSP
  • Comparisons to previous years are inevitable, but not apples-to-apples because of new test and new standards
  • Need at least three years of data to determine effectiveness of new math standards.
end of course and collection of evidence update
End of Course and Collection of Evidence Update

EOC:

  • Alg 1/Int 1 and Geom/Int2 scheduled last three weeks of 2010-11
  • Students take EOC in course of enrollment
  • Graduation requirement for Class of 2013 to reach proficiency in both exams
  • “Make-ups” for those who completed Alg or Geom sequence prior to 2010-11 will be available (but are not required to be taken this year)
  • OSPI is developing a legislative proposal that, if approved, will reduce the required EOC exams to one

COE:

  • Collection of Evidence opportunities, required under current law for graduation-required tested subjects, cost $600 per portfolio—very expensive
impact of first year end of course and 2013 math test requirement

common core state standards and assessment initiative overview and update

Common Core State Standards and Assessment InitiativeOverview and Update

Presented by:

Jessica Vavrus, Asst. Superintendent, Teaching and Learning

the common core state standards initiative background
The Common Core State Standards Initiative - Background
  • Beginning in the spring of 2009, Governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia committed to developing a common core of state K-12 English-language arts (ELA) and mathematics standards.
    • States agreed to participate in the development process, provide input on drafts, and consider eventual adoption.
    • Signing MOA did not require commitment to adopt.
  • The Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) is a state-led effort coordinated by the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) with assistance from Project Achieve, ACT and SAT (College Board).

common core state standards design
Common Core State Standards Design

Building on the strength of current state standards, the CCSS are designed to be:

  • Focused, coherent, clear and rigorous
  • Internationally benchmarked
  • Anchored in college and career readiness*

*Ready for first-year credit-bearing, postsecondary coursework in mathematics and English without the need for remediation.

  • Evidence and research based

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

intentional design limitations
Intentional Design Limitations

What the Standards do NOT define:

  • How teachers should teach
  • All that can or should be taught
  • The nature of advanced work beyond the core
  • The interventions needed for students well below grade level
  • The full range of support for English language learners and students with special needs
  • Everything needed to be college and career ready

national process and timeline
National Process and Timeline

K-12 Common Standards:

  • Core writing teams in English Language Arts and Mathematics (See www.corestandards.org for list of team members) drafted standards
    • External and state feedback teams provided on-going feedback to writing teams throughout the process
    • Draft K-12 standards were released for public comment on March 10, 2010; 9,600 comments received nationwide (~ 900 from WA)
    • Validation Committee of leading experts reviewed standards
    • Final standards were released June 2, 2010

As of September 8, 2010, 36 states have formally adopted the common core state standards.

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

current and future focus for common state standards
Current and Future Focus for Common State Standards

Current:

  • K-12 English Language Arts
  • K-12 Mathematics

Future:

  • Science (draft by Fall 2011) (Framework currently under development)
  • English Language Development Standards (within 1 year)
  • Social Studies (within 2 years)

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

what does this mean for washington s existing learning standards
What does this mean for Washington’s existing Learning Standards?

Washington’s current Learning Standards in all subjects should continue to be implemented in classrooms.

  • Current state assessments will align with these standards through the 2013-14 school year.

If the Common Core State English language arts and mathematics standards are formally adopted in WA,

    • They would be phased in over 2 years to replace WA’s current reading, writing, and mathematics standards by the 2014-15 year.

Future Common Core State Standards in other subjects would be considered as they are drafted and finalized.

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

washington context for considering
Washington Context for Considering
  • Involvement since November 2009
    • Review and input on drafts of English language arts and mathematics standards
    • Initial comparison of WA standards to Common Core are positive
  • 2010 legislation (E2SSB 6696, Section 601) provides for:
    • “Provisional adoption” by the Superintendent by Aug. 2, 2010
    • Detailed report due to Legislature in Jan. 2011
      • To include: detailed comparison, timeline and costs, recommendations for possible additions
    • Formal adoption and implementation will begin following 2011 session unless otherwise directed by the Legislature
  • WA revision cycles for reading and writing standards

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

comparison overview
Comparison Overview
  • Two state-level comparisons
    • External Analysis – Hanover Research (final drafts completed)
      • Snapshot of “how well” WA standards match to the CCS
    • Washington-led Comparison (work to be done in late August)
      • Snapshot of “how well” CCS match to WA standards
  • So that…
    • WA educators can have a clear understanding of CCS in relation to current standards
    • We can determine what areas may need augmentation in which grades for subsequent support
  • Both available online – late September at

Draft Implementation Timeline

Summer 2010 to the 2014-2015 School Year

Phase 1Adopt, Align & Plan

1. Provisional adoption (ESSS 6696)

2. Gather input on strategy for implementation

Phase 2Communicate, Develop Process, Resources for Transition &Implementation

Phase 3

Transition to Common Core Standards

Phase 4Implementation

1. Spring 2014—pilot the assessment system

2. September 2014-June 2015—full implementation with state-wide assessment system.

This is the time to consider and plan for transitioning, while continuing to implement our current standards.

It is not the time to stop strong, standards-based instruction…

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

slide18

Adoption ≠ Implementation

  • State Superintendent has authority to adopt –
    • Following collaboration, input, and buy-in from key partners and stakeholder groups (State Board, Legislature, state curriculum advisors, content experts, etc.)
    • Review of Comparison Documents
  • States must adopt 100% of the common core standards and may consider adding “up to” 15% to the standards, if necessary
    • States responsible for setting the criteria and assessing the additions
  • Once adopted, implementation would be phased in over several school years; assessment of the common core would follow in 2014-15 school year

...to here?

How do we get from here...

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

All students leave high school college and career ready

...and, how can an assessment system contribute to this effort?

The SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium

A theory of action

  • A model of verifiable accomplishments/milestones, leading to the desired outcome
  • Accomplishments/milestones are inter-dependent
  • The theory of action is closely linked to the validation argument for the assessment system
slide29

The SMARTER Balanced Theory of Action

Technology supports innovative & comprehensive assessments

Technology provides increased access to learning

Summative adaptive assessments are benchmarked to college & career readiness

State policies and practices support increased expectations

Clear communication of expectations to stakeholders

Teachers use formative tools and practices to improve instruction

All students leave high school college and career ready

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

Professional capacity-building

PD and other supports for teachers to instruct on the CCSS

Teachers design and score assessment items & tasks

Interim/Benchmark assessments are used as progress checks

system highlights
System Highlights

Summative assessments using online computer adaptive technologies

  • Efficiently provide accurate measurement of all students, across the spectrum of knowledge and skills
  • Incorporate adaptive precision into performance tasks and events
  • Will assess full range of CCSS in English language arts and mathematics
  • Describe both current achievement and growth across time, showing progress toward college- and career-readiness
  • Scores can be reliably used for state-to-state comparability, with standards set against research-based benchmarks
  • The option of giving the summative tests twice a year.

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

system highlights1
System Highlights

Optional interim/benchmark and formative assessments

  • Are aligned to and reported on the same scale as the summative assessments
  • Help identify specific needs of each student, so teachers can provide appropriate, targeted instructional assistance
  • Incorporate significant involvement of teachers in item and task design and scoring
  • Are non-secure and fully accessible for use in instruction and professional development activities
  • Provide students and teachers with clear examples of the expected performance on common standards.

OSPI Common Core Information Sessions Sept. & Oct. 2010

system highlights2
System Highlights

Online, tailored reporting system

  • Supports educator access to information about student progress toward college- and career-readiness
  • Allows for exchange of student performance history across districts and states
  • Uses a Consortium-supported backbone, while individual states retain jurisdiction over access permissions and front-end “look” of online reports.

System Highlights

Benefits and efficiencies from “economies of scale” due to a multi-state consortium

  • Cost savings: SMARTER English language arts/mathematics estimated at ~$21 per student (below current for almost all SBAC states)
    • [Interim/benchmark & formative an additional ~$7 per student]
  • Shared interoperable open source software platforms: Item generation, item banking, and adaptive testing no longer exclusive property of vendors
  • Common, agreed-upon protocols for accommodations for students with disabilities and ELL students.
