  1. Common Core Transition Keystone Exams Project Based Assessments IU Curriculum Coordinators December 8, 2011

  2. Common Core Transition The Pennsylvania Journey English Language Arts Mathematics

  3. The Direction • Eligible Content rewritten to embrace Common Core Standards • PA Academic Standards revised to reflect the content and rigor of Common Core. • PSSA aligned to revised Eligible Content

  4. What Common Core Says - ELA Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from text. (Common Core: Gr. 7)

  5. What We Have - ELA

  6. When It’s Revised - ELA

  7. And the related standards… • 1.1.7.D Demonstrate comprehension/understanding before reading, during reading, and after reading on grade level texts through strategies such as comparing and contrasting texts, identifying context, and interpreting positions and arguments, distinguishing fact from opinion, and citing several pieces of textual evidence from the text to support analysis of text and conclusions. • 1.2.7.D Draw generalizations, inferences, and conclusions based on a variety of information sources citing evidence from multiple texts to support responses.

  8. What Common Core Says - Math Instructional time at Grade 3 should focus on four critical areas: • Developing understanding of multiplication and division and strategies for multiplication and division within 100 • Developing understanding of fractions, especially unit fractions (fractions with numerator 1) • Developing understanding of the structure of rectangular arrays and of area • Describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes.

  9. What Common Core Says - Math Use multiplication and division within 100 to solve word problems in situations involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities, e.g., by using drawings and equations with a symbol for the unknown number to represent the problem. (Common Core: Grade 3)

  10. What We Have

  11. When It’s Revised - Math

  12. Is this exciting? • Work groups to develop PA Common Core Standards will convene January 18, 19, and 20, 2012. • Projected work plan: • Math and English Language Arts • Grades 3 – 8 and 11 • Link revised Anchor and Eligible Content to existing PA Academic Standards • Rewrite PA Academic Standards to create big idea statements to create PA Common Core Standards

  13. Even more exciting… • IU curriculum staff assist in developing training modules to assist districts in transition • Understanding the PA Common Core model • Developing a step by step process for curriculum evaluation/revision in districts • Creating crosswalk documents as needed • Develop a training delivery system

  14. Timeline

  15. Assessment Overview

  16. LEA Goals • Continue with Common Core curriculum alignment • Determine Keystone Exam schedule • Plan for Keystone Project Based Assessment option

  17. To assist… • IU delivery of Common Core and Project Based Assessment trainings • SAS posting of PA Common Core Standards and Anchor/Eligible Content

  18. Keystone Exams English Language Arts Mathematics Science Social Studies

  19. Keystone Exams • Keystone Exam Status • 2011 – 2012 • 2012 – 2013 • Assessed Content Areas • Algebra I • Biology • Literature • English Composition • AYP Status and Keystone Exams

  20. Keystone Exam Schedule • Operational: 2012 – 2013 • Algebra I • Biology • Composition • Literature • Field Test: 2012 – 2013 • Civics and Government

  21. Project Based Assessments An Alternative Pathway to Proficiency

  22. Chapter 4 Students who do not score proficient or above on a Keystone Exam after having taken the test at least twice may choose to complete a project based assessment for that module based upon the requirements as detailed below.

  23. Chapter 4 If a student is unable to meet the requirements in § 4.24(b)(1)(iv)(A) (relating to high school graduation requirements) after two attempts on a Keystone Exam, the student may supplement a Keystone Exam score through satisfactory completion of a project-based assessment. Points earned through satisfactory performance on one or more project modules related to the Keystone Exam module or modules on which the student did not pass shall be added to the student’s highest Keystone Exam score.

  24. Project Based Assessment Overview • Created by PA educators guided by curriculum experts • Scaffolded tasks building to the creation and submission of a Project Based Assessment • Five to seven hour time frame for completion • Project work by student completed before, during, or after school in supervised environment • PSSA accommodations apply

  25. Roles in the PBA • Student • Monitor • Tutor • School Site Administrator • District Level Administrator • Intermediate Unit • Regional Review Panel

  26. Review of Sample PBA • Online Delivery • Secure Site • Accessible by Defined Roles

  27. Field Testing Purpose: Evaluate the online tool as well as the quality of the projects • Scheduled for early 2012 • Volunteer School Districts
