  1. Introducing the New Iowa Assessments

  2. The Iowa Assessments 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  3. Details • All slides posted to Iowa Testing Programs website: https://www.education.uiowa.edu/itp/ • Q&A is underway and will be posted by early June • Catherine-welch@uiowa.edu 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  4. Overview of New Iowa Assessments

  5. New Iowa Assessments • Forms E and F • All new items • All items written and reviewed by Iowa educators • All items field tested on Iowa students • All items align to the Iowa Core and the Common Core State Standards 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  6. Major Changes from Current Forms • All Levels • Order of tests within the booklet; adjusted number of items • Use of color, page layouts • New configuration of composite scores • Levels 5/6 to 8 • Sources of Information has been eliminated • Levels 9 to 14 • Maps and Diagrams and Reference Materials have been eliminated* • Mathematics (two separately timed parts) has replaced Math Concepts and Estimation and Math Problem Solving and Data Interpretation • Levels 15 to 17/18 • Spelling and Sources of Information* have been eliminated *where appropriate content has been moved to Science or Social Studies 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  7. Implications for AYP/NCLB Testing (Levels 9 to 14) Forms A and B Forms E and F Reading, Part 1 (30 mins) Reading, Part 2 (30 mins) Science (35 mins) Mathematics, Part 1 (30 mins) Mathematics, Part 2 (30 mins) • Reading Comprehension (25 + 30 mins) • Science (30 mins) • Mathematics Concepts and Estimation (25 + 5 mins) • Mathematics Problem Solving and Data Interpretation (30 mins) 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  8. Implications for AYP/NCLB Testing (Levels 15 – 17/18) Forms A and B Forms E and F Reading (40 mins) Science (40 mins) Mathematics (40 mins) • Reading (40 mins) • Science (40 mins) • Mathematics (40 mins) 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  17. Test Design and Development

  18. 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  19. Iowa Assessments – Forms E/F • Standards-based instructional decisions • Individual progress and growth for individuals • Reporting group progress and growth • Providing relative comparisons • Providing empirical evidence that supports comparisons with NAEP, state results and international benchmarking measures • Providing information that measures a continuum of achievement and tracks student progress from kindergarten to grade 12. • Measuring achievement in core academic areas important for success in college including reading, language arts, mathematics and science. 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  20. Test Development Sources of Evidence • Common Core State Standards • Leading state standards • International standards • Assessment data • Curriculum surveys • NAEP frameworks and specifications • Scholarly research in curriculum and assessment • Feedback from educators, researchers, professional organizations, parents, students 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  21. Introduction to Reports

  22. Reports to Support Uses of The Iowa Assessments • Standards-based Interpretations • Accountability • Growth • College Readiness • Relative Comparisons 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  23. Standards-Based Interpretations • Determine which standards have been mastered by the student, classroom or school • Determine which standards need additional focus • Compare progress among students 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  24. Accountability 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  25. Measure Growth • Determine expected growth for all students • Set goals for a student based on any starting place • Measure student growth using vertically articulated standards 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  26. College Readiness • Predict college readiness indicators • Help students plan the appropriate coursework • Identify students that are not “on track” 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  27. Relative Comparisons • Determine student strengths with respect to the school, district, state and nation • Use relative comparisons to evaluate programs, set expectations and determine interventions 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  28. Reports – Standard Service • List of student scores • Summary reports • Student labels • Profile Narrative Report • Mathematics Performance Summary • Reading Performance Summary • Student data on CD 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  40. Implications for AYP Reporting

  41. New Iowa AssessmentsImplications for Determination of Proficiency • Background • Due to historical trend data available prior to NCLB, the state’s workbook application requested continued flexibility of administration dates (fall, midyear or spring) • The National Percentile Rank (NPR) metric allowed for a fixed cutscore while allowing for flexibility in administration dates 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  42. New Iowa AssessmentsImplications for Determination of Proficiency • Assumptions for new forms • Schools will continue to administer their Iowa Assessments to meet their scheduling requirements and to retain their historical trend data (fall, midyear or spring) • New forms will be linked to previous forms and the equivalent of the 41st NPR from the 2000 norms will be identified on the Form E scale • The expectations for proficiency remain the same from Forms A/B to Forms E/F • Interpretation information will be made available to schools to transition to new forms 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  43. Standard Score Scale 41 NPR = 259 Standard Score = 21 Raw Score 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  44. Current Proficiency Ranges –High School Reading Example 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  45. Proposed Link to Proficiency Ranges –High School Reading Example 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  46. Reading Example 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  47. Summary • Proficiency cutscores be reported in Standard Score metric • Proficiency cutscores be available in August • Cutscores will be provided for: • Grades 3-12 • Mathematics, Reading, Science • Fall, Midyear, Spring 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs

  48. Test Administration and Delivery

  49. Registering/Ordering Materials • Receiving Materials • Administering Assessments • Returning Materials • Scoring and Reporting Test Administration and Delivery

  50. Registering and Ordering Materials • Continue to use Online Tools to register and order materials • Continue to use current process for Student Demographic Files (“barcodes”) 2011 by Iowa Testing Programs
