- Identify, access & apply tools to facilitate understanding & implementation of the new Common Core standards.
- Identify the assessment consortium and the current plan for assessment and accountability in 2014-15.

Reality1: A Shift in Education

- Cumpulsory learning has forced us to ask:
- What do we want students to know and be able to do?
- How will we know when they have learned it?

Reality 2: What the Data Indicates

- At least 28% of students entering four-year public colleges in the fall of 2000 had to begin by taking remedial courses in math and language arts.
- At least 42% of students entering two-year public colleges in the fall of 2000 had to begin be taking remedial courses in math and language arts.

Nation Center for Education Statistics

Reality 3: The Great Disparity in Curriculum & Assessments

- The “Proficiency Illusion”

Reality 3: The Great Disparity in Curriculum & Assessments

- Researchers collected data from several states that administered both state and nationally normed assessments.
- Findings indicated that:
- States vary greatly in difficulty
- The tests of 8 states (out of 26) have become easier
- Improvement in passing rates on state tests is largely the result of easier tests.

Reality 3: The Great Disparity in Curriculum & Assessments

- Findings also clearly illustrate that there is a disconnect between the curricular expectations and assessment pieces administered that were state normed (ISAT 3-8) versus those that are nationally normed (PSAE).

Data Obtained From:

How were the Standards Developed?

- The Common Core State Standards Initiative is a state-led effort, launched more than a year ago by state leaders, including governors and state commissioners of education from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia, through their membership in the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) and Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).
- To write the standards, the NGA Center and CCSSO brought together content experts, teachers, researchers and others.
- The standards have been divided into two categories:
- College and career readiness standards, which address what students are expected to learn when they have graduated from high school; and
- K-12 standards, which address expectations for elementary through high school.

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- $536 Billion was allocated to “Race to the Top” through ARRA.
- $48.6 Billion went to the “State Stabilization Fund” (formula funding)
- $5 Billion was allocated to Race to the Top ($4.35 billion) and “Investing in Innovation” ($650 Million) (competitive funding)

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- Phase 1 RTTT awarded 2 grants
- Phase 2 RTTT awarded 10 grants
- RTTTT Assessment Grants = 2 grants
- RTTT Technical Assistance Network was developed to provide some resources to non-recipients

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- 4 Purposes of Race to the Top
- Adopting state standards and assessments that prepare students for success in college and the workplace
- Recruiting, rewarding, and retaining effective teachers and principals
- Building data systems that measure student success & inform instruction and practitioner development
- Turning around the lowest performing schools

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- The state of Illinois applied for RTTT finding twice – January 2009 & May 2010.
- Part of the assurances submitted by the state of Illinois included the adoption of the new Common Core Standards – regardless of whether or not the state was ultimately awarded funding.

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- These 4 assurances have become the PILLARS of ALL programs within the US Department of Education.
- These 4 assurances will be the PILLARS of the ESEA Reauthorization Blueprint.

“Race to the Top” (RTTT)

- The common core standards were officially adopted by the state of Illinois on August 2, 2010.

See Activity Packet Page ___1___

ESEA

- Elementary and Secondary Education Act
- Originally established in 1970 ensure fair & equal access to education.
- Reauthorized as No Child Left Behind in 2001.
- What could the next reauthorization look like and what does it have to do with the Common Core?

A Closer Look…..

- Divide into groups.
- Read your assigned section of the Obama administration’s “Blueprint for Reform”
- Discussion your assigned section and specifically answer the following:
- Key word, phrase or sentence that stood out as you read or summarizes section.
- What are 3 things that were affirmed as you read the section (or 3 things you already knew)?
- What are 2 things that you were surprised by?
- What is one thing that you read that will directly impact your school or district?
- Record your answers on the large paper at your table.
- Hang your poster on the wall.

Wall Walk & Break

- During your break, please read the reflections of the different groups that are posted on the wall.

The Illinois State Board of Education adopted new Math and ELA standards for K-12 education aligned to college and career readiness.

Illinois State Board of Education

Agency Goal #1:

Every student will demonstrate academic achievement and be prepared for success after high school.

Common Core vs. IL State Learning Standards

IL Learning Standards

Common Core

Fewer standards

Focus on depth, not breadth

Standards are more rigorous (higher levels of Bloom’s)

Standards focus on APPLICATION

Focus is performance-based

College & career readiness

- Many, many, many standards
- Focus on breadth, not depth
- Mixed bag with regards to rigor, but a lot of lower level skills and expectations
- Focus on the individual pieces and processes (disjointed)

What does College and Career Ready Mean?

The College and Career Ready descriptions are not standards

themselves but instead offer a portrait of students who

meet the new standards.

We want to create

FULLOPTION graduates!

What are College and Career Readiness Skills?

- They demonstrate independence.
- They build strong content knowledge.
- They respond to varying demands of audience,
- task, purpose discipline.
- They comprehend as well as critique.
- They value evidence.
- They use technology and digital media
- strategically and capably.
- They come to understand other perspectives and
- cultures.

Standards for Mathematical Practice

- Important preface to standards
- Describes varieties of expertise that math educators should develop in their students
- What does a mathematically proficient student look like?

Standards for Mathematical Practice

- Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.
- Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
- Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.
- Model with mathematics.
- Use appropriate tools strategically.
- Attend to precision.
- Look for and make use of structure.
- Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.

Overview of Math Standards

The K-8 Math Standards are organized by

Domain, Clusters, and Standards.

- Domain: Overarching ideas that connect topics across the grade levels.
- Clusters: Demonstrate the grade by grade progression of task complexity.
- Standards: Define what a student should be able to know and do at that grade level.

Pair & Share

- Find your 3:00 partner.
- Complete the activity on the next slide together.

Domain, Strand or Cluster?

Operations & Algebraic Thinking

Develop understanding of fractions as numbers.

1.NB.1 Count to 120, starting at any number less than 120. In this range, read and write numerals and represent a number of objects with a written numeral.

Interpret functions that arise in applications in terms of the context.

K.CC.7 Compare two numbers between 1 an 10 presented as written numerals

Reasoning with Equations and Inequalities

Target of the Math standards is college and career readiness for all students

Focus in early grades on number and numeration and the relationship to operations to build a solid foundation in math

Establish key concepts leading to

basic algebraic readiness by eighth grade

Develop geometric concepts in the

middle grades

Target of the Math standards is college and career readiness for all students

High school math focus on using math and solving messy problems, similar to what students would see in the real world

Problem-solving and communication emphasized

Mathematical practices are recommended which cut across learning K-12

The Challenge for High Schools

- High Schools face a particular challenge when it comes to the new math standards.
- The K-7 standards contain the pre-requisites to prepare students for Algebra I by 8th grade. This will impact course offerings at the secondary level.
- High Schools will need to choose whether they follow a traditional course sequence (Alg. 2, Geometry, etc.) or and integrated approach (Math 1, Math 2, Math 3, etc.)

Take Note of Vocabulary of the Math Standards

- It is important to use the LANGUAGE of the standards when you are instructing & assessing students.

- Illinois is part of a 26- state consortium on assessment (PARCC) focused on developing a richer more authentic evaluation of student learning.

The Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC or Partnership) was awarded funding for the development of a K-12 assessment system aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts and mathematics.

The goal of PARCC is to create an assessment system that will help states dramatically increase the number of students who graduate high school ready for college and careers and provide students, parents, teachers and policymakers with the tools they need to help students – from grade three through high school – stay on track and graduate prepared.

What is the impact of participation in PARCC?

States in PARCC will adopt common assessments and performance standards.

The Partnership’s assessment system will be anchored in college and career readiness.

Students will take parts of the assessment at key times during the school year, closer to when they learn the material.

88

What will the new assessment look like?

PARCC assessments will be computer based.

PARCC assessments will include sophisticated items and performance tasks to measure the standards more effectively.

Assessment System Design

- More Meaningful Standards: consistent across states, clear to the public and on track for college
- Higher Quality Tests: assessments will include performance tasks to measure critical thinking, strategic problem solving, research and writing.
- Through-Course Testing: Students will take parts of the assessment at key times during the school year, closer to when they learn the material.

90

Assessment System Design

- Maximize Technology: PARCC assessments in most grades will be computer based.
- Cross-State Comparability: States in PARCC will adopt common assessments and common performance standards.
