Common CoreState Standards ELA/ Literacy
8 Mathematical Practices 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Big Shifts in ELA/Literacy • Appropriate Text Complexity • Increased Reading of Informational Texts • Disciplinary Literacy • Close Reading • Text-dependent Questions • General Academic and Domain-specific Vocabulary • Argumentative Writing • Short and Sustained Research Projects
K-2 Assessments • The tasks will consist of developmentally-appropriate assessment types, such as • observations • checklists • classroom activities • protocols, which reflect foundational aspects of the Common Core State Standards.
3-8 Assessments • 2 Summative Assessments • PBA - Administered after approximately 75% of the school year • ELA will focus on writing effectively when analyzing text • Math focus on applying skills, concepts, and understandings to solve multi-step problems requiring abstract reasoning, precision, perseverance, and strategic use of tools.
3-8 Assessments cont’d • EOY - Administered after approximately 90% of the school year • ELA will focus on reading comprehension • Math will call on students to demonstrate further conceptual understanding of the Major Content and Additional and Supporting Content of the grade and demonstrate mathematical fluency.
3-8 Assessments Cont’d • Optional Non-Summative Assessments • Diagnostic Assessment - designed to be an indicator of student knowledge and skills so that instruction, supports, and professional development can be tailored to meet student needs. • MYA - comprised of performance-based items and tasks, with an emphasis on hard-to-measure standards. • Speaking and Listening (ELA/ Literacy only) - designed to be an indicator of students’ ability to communicate their own ideas, listen to and comprehend the ideas of others, and to integrate and evaluate information from multimedia sources.
High School Assessments • 2 Summative Components • PBA - Administered after approximately 75% of the school year • ELA will focus on writing effectively when analyzing text • Mathfocus on mathematical reasoning and modeling real world problems

High School Assessments • The high school assessments will includea range of item types, including: • innovative constructed response • extended performance tasks • selected response (all of which will be computer based). **In addition, there will be college-ready cut scores on high school tests in mathematics and ELA/Literacy, which will signify whether students are ready for entry-level, credit-bearing college coursework. Earlier tests will be aligned vertically to ensure students are on - and stay on - the track to graduating ready for college and careers.
Model Content Frameworks • serves as a bridge between CCSS and the PARCC assessments • were developed to help design items for the PARCC tests and to support educators’ implementation of the Common Core.

Model Content FrameworksELA/Literacy Grades 3-11 This document for each grade addresses the following: • Narrative Summary of ELA/ Literacy Standards for Grade # • ELA/ Literacy Content Frameworks Chart for Grade # • Key Terms and Concepts for Grade # ELA/ Literacy Model Content Framework Chart • Reading Complex Texts • Writing to Texts • Research Project • For Reading and Writing in Each Module • For Reading Foundation Skills in Each Module • Writing Standards Progression from Grades # to # • Speaking and Listening Standards Progression from Grade # to Grade #
Performance Level Descriptors • indicate the knowledge, skills and practices that students should be able to demonstrate at each performance level, in each content area (ELA/literacy and mathematics), at each grade. • Content- and grade level-specific PLDs are designed to inform test item development, the setting of performance level cut scores, and curriculum and instruction at the local level.
Performance Level DescriptorsMath Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims A: The student solves problems involving the MAJOR CONTENT for the grade/ course with connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice B: The student solves problems involving the ADDITONAL and SUPPORTING CONTENT for the grade/ course with the connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice.
Performance Level DescriptorsMath Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims C: The student expresses grade/ course-level appropriate mathematical REASONING by constructing arguments, critiquing the reasoning of others and/ or attending to precision when making mathematical statements.
Performance Level DescriptorsMath Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims • D: The student solves real-world problems with a degree of difficulty appropriate to the grade/course by APPLYING knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for the current grade/course (or for more complex problems, knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for previous grades/courses), engaging particularly in the MODELING practice, and where helpful making sense of problems and persevering to solve them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, using appropriate tools strategically, looking for the making use of structure, and/or looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning.
Performance Level DescriptorsMath Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims • E: The student demonstrates FLUENCY in areas set forth in the Standards for Content in grades 3-6. *Sub-Claim E is only present in grades 3-6
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Reading Claims • Text complexity • The range of accuracy in expressing reading comprehension demonstrated in student responses • The quality of evidence cited from sources read
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Text Complexity • Three quantitative text complexity measures (Reading Maturity Metric, Source Rater, and Lexile) will be used to analyze all reading passages to determine an initial recommendation for placement of a text into a grade band and subsequently a grade level. • Complexity Analysis Worksheets (www.PARCConline.org), one for informational text and one for literary text, are then used to determine qualitative measures. Trained evaluators use these worksheets to determine a recommendation for qualitative text complexity within the grade level, with each text defined as readily accessible, moderately complex, or very complex.
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Range of Accuracy • Accurate • Mostly accurate • Generally accurate • Minimally accurate • Inaccurate
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Quality of Evidence • Explicit evidence • Inferential evidence
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Writing Claim • Written expression • Knowledge of language and conventions
Performance Level DescriptorsELA/ Literacy: Knowledge of Language and Conventions
Evidence Tables • describe the knowledge and skills that an assessment item or a task elicits from students • are grade-level specific • tells how and when standards are assessed • tables include standard, evidence statement, clarifications, associated practices, and calculator designation
Math Evidence Tables • Evidence Statement Key • this will list either a CCSS, sub-claim, grade/ course, domain, or cluster • Evidence Statement Text • CCSS – will use exact standard language (ex. (8.F.5) • sub-claim – will list what the student will be expected to do within the sub-claim as well as the content scope (ex. HS.C.5.11 Reasoning or 3.D.1 Modeling/Application) • grade/ course – implications of the standards that could be integrated across a grade or course (ex. 4.int.2 integrated across grade 4 or G.int.4 integrated across Geometry) • domain – implications of the standards that could be integrated across a domain (ex. F.Int.1 integrated across the Functions domain) • cluster – implications of standards that could be integrated across a cluster (ex. S-ID.int.1 integrated across interpreting categorical & quantitative data)
Math Evidence Tables • Clarifications • provides item developers with guidance on the depth and breadth of the tasks • includes clarifications, limits, emphases, and other information intended to ensure appropriate variety in tasks • MP • mathematical practices provide guidance on how content should be connected to practices
