Yes, this are my work and so I am using my own ScoopIt website to promote my own own work. But....I believe in these planners as tools to develop standards-aligned customized curricular assessment and corresponding learning activities. There you go! Check them out and share feedback. These planners are a revisioning of my original planners which had to be changed in fall 2014 when PARCC made content updates to their assessment blueprints.

Did You Know: Why Are There Two Parts to the Test? | PARCC | 7th Grade ELA- Common Core | Scoop.it

"The early spring performance-based assessment captures critical-thinking, reasoning and application skills through “extended tasks.” In English language arts/literacy, students read passages from real texts – fiction and non-fiction, and sometimes watch video or listen to audio. Then they write, using what they’ve learned from the passages and multi-media sources to support their arguments....

 

"In mathematics, students solve multi-step problems that require reasoning and address real world situations. This requires students to use mathematical reasoning, make sense of quantities and their relationships to solve real-world problems, and show their understanding. Many previous assessments focused mostly on low-level skills only....

 

"Students participate in the end-of-year assessment shortly before the end of the school year. This consists of innovative, short-answer questions and items to measure concepts and skills. Students demonstrate comprehension of literary and informational texts and give definitions of words based on their reading of texts, rather than on memorization. They also show understanding of mathematical concepts, procedures and short applications...."

The two-part test makes complete sense to me--assessing students' abilities in reading, thinking, and writing about meaning-making as one sitting and then later in the year taking a more directed closed type of assessment through selected response. As a teacher, I often had several assessments within the confines of a unit. I frequently spread the unit test over two days: multiple choice on one day and writing on a second and separate day. Students appreciated that their time was respected.

PARCC test: Another step toward progress

PARCC test: Another step toward progress | 7th Grade ELA- Common Core | Scoop.it

The governor's interference may create anxiety among some parents, students...

 

"Nor has PARCC arrived in the dark of night. For five years, the state has been moving forward with full intention to test and to test rigorously, the better to judge the academic fitness of our students.

 

"A local mother — in fact, a teacher — told school officials she would opt out two of her children from the testing this year. That's her right. She said students are overtested, the test questions were unclear, the results would not come back in time to help her individual children. She may be correct on all counts.

 

"But the test is not intended to boost students' self-esteem. It is meant to measure progress. It should be demanding, just as coursework should be ever more rigorous...."

The point of this brief article is well made. What message are parents sending to their students when they exempt them from mandated assessments? Is the message a fear of failure...the test is too hard for their kids? Can assessments improve if parents opt out? PARCC is no worse as assessments go than any of the assessments kids have taken in the past...and frankly, it is better...it is standards aligned. Granted, there will be no knowledge questions on the test, but knowledge will be required. Application is the question...can our children apply in new circumstance what they are being in taught in a routine environment.
