  1. Comprehensive Assessment System Webinar #1 September 28, 2011

  2. Session Topic: What is a comprehensive assessment system and how does it support other RIDE initiatives?

  3. Session Objectives The purpose of this session is to: • Come to a common understanding of what a comprehensive assessment system is and what its purposes are 2) Illustrate the relationship between a CAS and: • Educator Evaluation • Transition to CCSS • Transition to PARCC • RTTT assessment initiatives • Instructional Management System

  4. Comprehensive Assessment System “Each LEA shall develop a Comprehensive Assessment System that includes measures of student performance for the purposes of formative, interim, and summative evaluations of all students in each core content area.” –Basic Education Program, Section G-13-3 Comprehensive Assessment System Criteria & Guidance Comprehensive Assessment System

  5. Comprehensive Assessment System A comprehensive assessment system is a coordinated plan for monitoring the academic achievement of students from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. The goals of the comprehensive assessment system are to: - increase student learning by producing actionable data -evaluate the effectiveness of programs -ensure that all students are making progress toward achieving learning goals.

  6. Topics addressed by guidance Topics addressed by guidance • Purposes of assessment -to inform instruction -to screen/identify -to measure outcomes • Types of assessment • Formative • Interim • Summative

  7. Topics addressed by guidance Topics addressed by guidance • Developing and selecting assessments • Reliability & validity • Interpreting and communicating data • Suggested next steps • Appendices

  8. Features of a Comprehensive Assessment System • Necessary data is collected &unnecessary data is not collected • Educators are educated consumers of data • Data is used appropriately to make programmatic and instructional decisions • Data is communicated clearly to stakeholders

  9. ComprehensiveAssessmentSystem PROCESS

  10. Examples of Assessments • NAEP • PSAT, SAT, AP • TIMSS, PIRLS, PISA • NECAP (PARCC) • RIAA (NCSC-GSEG) • ACCESS for ELLS Unit tests, summative performance tasks, PBGR end-of-course exams, senior projects • Progress monitoring (PLP, RTI, ELL, etc.) • Exit tickets, observations, class discussions, questions asked during instruction

  11. Link to Educator Evaluation Professional Practice Student Learning -RIGM -SLOs Professional Responsibilities

  12. Link to Educator Evaluation • Availability of useful data • Facilitation of Student Learning Objectives • Professional Practice - Formative Assessment

  13. Link to CCSS

  14. Link to CCSS • Monitor student achievement during transition to identify priority areas • Local, common assessments - Aligned to standards -Interim or end-of-course assessments based on common understanding of mastery at each grade • PARCC will be based upon the CCSS

  15. PARCC & NCSC-GSEG will be based on the Common Core State Standards RIAA 2011-12 Administrator's Workshop

  16. Link to PARCC • PARCC design • Proposed new design:

  17. Link to PARCC • Determine which PARCC options meet LEA needs • Understand what state assessment data can and cannot tell us about student achievement • Long-term: more meaningful comparison data between states

  18. Link to NCSC-GSEG: Learning Progressions will be as a bridge, not Alternate Assessment Standards RIAA 2011-12 Administrator's Workshop

  19. The New Alternate Assessment (NCSC-GSEG) Test Features • Still in development phase. • Unique student population • Pushing the limits of test development for these students • Tasks will be “tighter” and teachers will not have to think up tasks on their own. • Online system to deliver tasks to teachers, not necessarily students • This will allow teachers to adapt the test to the student, not the student adapting to the test.

  20. Link to Formative, Interim, Data Use

  21. Link to Formative, Interim, Data Use • Gap analysis to identify PD priorities • Build assessment literacy in preparation for 2012 resource roll-out

  22. Link to IMS • Single sign-on • Access and query data, run reports • Resources: formative assessment modules and interim assessment system

  23. Support for Developing your CAS
