  1. OSPI CHANGESAND PRIORITIES January 2009

  2. OSPI agency prioritiesand organization chart

  3. Superintendent Dorn’sfive budget and policy priorities • Fund the Basic Education Funding Task Force recommendations • Replace the Washington Assessment of Student Learning • Dramatically reduce the dropout rate and improve achievement for all students • Expand career and technical educational opportunities • Expand early learning opportunities

  4. Assessment history and OSPI responsibilities


  5. OSPI assessment responsibilities

  8. OSPI Assessment Responsibilities

  9. The future of assessment

  10. The new “Washington Comprehensive Assessment Program”: six goals • Shorten the tests • Reduce the amount of time students spend on written responses • Return scores more quickly • Increase the use of technology • Provide more diagnostic information to teachers/parents • Minimize costs

  11. Washington Comprehensive Assessment ProgramMeasurements of student progress: READING Spring 2009 Administer WASLas planned Spring 2010 Shortened passages Fewer constructed response items Begin computer testing in 3-8 Single-session testing; late Spring window Spring 2011 Spring 2012 Expand computer testing; add HS Statewide computer testing Computer testing fall tests in 3-8

  12. Washington Comprehensive Assessment ProgramMeasurements of student progress: MATH Spring 2009 Administer WASLas planned Spring 2010 Add completion items Fewer constructed response items Begin computer testing in 3-8 Single-session testing; late Spring window Spring 2011 Spring 2012 Expand computer testing; Add HS E-of-C Statewide computer testing Computer testing Fall tests in 3-8

  13. Washington Comprehensive Assessment ProgramMeasurements of student progress: WRITING Spring 2009 Administer WASLas planned Explore computer scoring Spring 2010 Possible shortened test Possible computer scoring Late Spring window Spring 2011 Spring 2012 Computer practice writing testsin 3-8, HS

  14. Washington Comprehensive Assessment ProgramMeasurements of student progress: SCIENCE Spring 2009 Administer WASLas planned Spring 2010 Less constructed response items Begin computer testing in 5 & 8 5 & 8 testing takes one session only Late Spring window Spring 2011 Spring 2012 Expand computer testing; Add HS Statewide computer testing

  15. New math and science standards • Tests for Grades 3 through 8 will measure the new mathematics standards in 2010 • Tests for Grades 5 and 8 will measure the new science standards in 2011 • High school math and science tests measure the new math and science standards in 2011

  16. Math and sciencegraduation requirements • Superintendent will request that graduation requirements be delayed • State Board needs to determine “valid and reliable” criteria • Earning additional math credits stays in place • Last year for HS Math WASL to be 2010; current law calls for 2013 (legislation pending)

  17. High school math end-of-course exams • Four end-of-course exams will be implemented in 2011: Algebra I, Geometry, Integrated 1 and Integrated 2 • Last year for current WASL would be 2010 • A “core math” test measuring 1st and 2nd year HS math will be available as graduation alternative starting in 2011

  18. New high school mathematics “performance expectations” (PEs) arranged by course

  19. New high school mathematics “performance expectations” (PEs) arranged by course

  20. New high school mathematics “performance expectations” (PEs) arranged by course

  21. New high school mathematics “performance expectations” (PEs) arranged by course

  22. New high school mathematics “performance expectations” (PEs) arranged by course

  23. Computerized testing • Computer delivered tests an option in 2010; evaluation of infrastructure • Computerized testing expanded in 2011, with fall and spring testing in grades 3-8 • Goal: Statewide computerized testing in 2012 • Paper-and-pencil remains an accommodation and an option • Capturing responses via computer supports constructed responses; will explore computerized scoring • Current contractors have proven track record • Growth scores available from fall-to-spring • OSPI is exploring fiscal impacts of computerized scoring

  24. Expanded support for classrooms • Will move aggressively to provide classroom teachers with support throughout the year • Will be online tools (screening and progress monitoring) • Will be two testing opportunities • Spring accountability test moved to later in the year • Districts will spend far fewer resources to distribute, secure and collect testing materials

  25. Other testing issues • Translations • Budget required cutback to translate Math/Science into 6 languages to 2 languages (Spanish/Russian) • Will work to re-instate full six-language plan • Modified tests for students with disabilities • Legislature did not fund “modified” (or 2% test) state test • (WAAS-Portfolio is 1% test) • Will seek funding for this population • ELL Testing • Will work toward better alignment between MSP and English language proficiency test (WLPT-II)

  26. Instructional materials review

  27. Math instructional materialsreview process overview

  28. Math instructional materialsreview process overview, cont’d

  29. Category weights

  30. K-8 Instructional Materials Review Committee Members – June 2008

  31. Materials Review Week – the library

  32. Elementary school composite scores with95% confidence intervals

  33. Middle school composite scores with95% confidence intervals

  34. Algebra composite scores with95% confidence intervals

  35. Geometry composite scores with95% confidence intervals

  36. Integrated composite scores with 95% confidence intervals, treated as individual courses

  37. Integrated composite scores with 95% confidence intervals, treated as a series

  38. Traditional and Integrated publisher bundle composite scores with 95% confidence intervals Traditional Integrated

  39. Math curriculum materials review summary • Strength of field is impressive in Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II • Integrated high school programs will need significant supplements • All K-8 programs will need supplements • OSPI is working on supplemental materials review and “birds-of-feather” collaboration

  40. Superintendent Dorn’sfive budget and policy priorities • Fund the Basic Education Funding Task Force recommendations • Replace the Washington Assessment of Student Learning • Dramatically reduce the dropout rate and improve achievement for all students • Expand career and technical educational opportunities • Expand early learning opportunities
