Martha was re-carpeting her bedroom which was 15 feet long and 10 feel wide. How many square feet of carpeting will she need to purchase? Ms. Brown’s class will raise rabbits for their spring science fair. They have 24 feet of fencing with which to build a rectangular rabbit pen in which to keep the rabbits. If Ms. Brown’s students want their rabbits to have as much room as possible, how long would each of the sides of the pen be? How long would each of the sides of the pen be if they have only 16 feet of fencing? 3. How would you go about determining the pen with the most room for any amount of fencing? Organize your work so that someone else who reads it will understand it.
Goal #1: Create High-Quality Assessments Flexible • End-of-Year • Assessment • Innovative, computer-based items • Mid-Year Assessment • Performance-based • Emphasis on hard to measure standards • Potentially summative • Performance-Based • Assessment (PBA) • Extended tasks • Applications of concepts and skills • Early Assessment • Early indicator of student knowledge and skills to inform instruction, supports, and PD • ELA/Literacy • Speaking • Listening Summative assessment for accountability Formative assessment 24
75% • Over Several Sessions/Class Periods • ELA: Compose an essay or research paper • Math: Perform a multi-step performance task…application of skills & reasoning 3 Speaking & Listening: Conducted in classroom and scored by teacher.
90% • 40-65 Questions • Range of item types • Innovative technology-enhanced items • Sample full year of standards • Scored by computer • Accurately assess ALL students • Items above & below grade? • Leveled Tests? • Adaptive Tests?
