PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples

PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples | Lifelong Learning through Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it
Learn more about the Common Core assessment samples released earlier this week.

 

 

PARCC presents and discusses three innovative ELA item types:

Evidence-based selected response (EBSR) – A traditional selected-response item will be followed by an item that asks students to show the text evidence that led them to the answer in the first item. Technology-enhanced constructed response (TECR) – These items will measure students’ understanding of texts using technologies such as drag and drop, cut and paste, highlighting, and arranging items to show relationships. Range of prose constructed response (PCR) – These items will be essays that measure students’ understanding of texts through written expression. Language conventions will also be measured. Each annual performance-based assessment will contain FOUR of these items.

 

PARCC presents and discusses the following innovations in item formats and assessment design:

Items may include simulations that call for improving a model, responding to game-like environments, or constructing diagrams or other visual models. Items will avoid the limitations of traditional multiple-choice items with formats such as drag and drop, selected response with multiple correct answers, and multi-step tasks. Items will capture more complex student responses with the use of drawing tools and other technology. Items will demonstrate rigor through multi-step tasks. Items may include tasks that require written explanations of mathematical reasoning.

Reflections from a Teacher Librarian: #CEM12 and #PLN

Reflections from a Teacher Librarian: #CEM12 and #PLN | Lifelong Learning through Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

A PLN is personal. It's what engages you in purposeful learning and leads you to continue to strive to be a better, smarter, and daring educator. So, I'm not going to list any people, just the initial steps I used to build my PLN. Hopefully, this help someone start their PLN.

Common Core Assessment: Autopsy or Check Up

Common Core Assessment: Autopsy or Check Up | Lifelong Learning through Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it
Understand in a clear, direct way, the importance of formative and summative Common Core assessments.

 

What’s the difference between a doctor’s appointment and an autopsy?

 

An autopsy, while helpful in some cases to determine what happened, is often too late to be truly useful in improving one’s health, or condition. What’s done is done—here’s what happened, don’t do it next time.

A check up on the other hand is a look at what’s happening as you go. It gives you time to see how you’re doing, and look at what you need to change—maybe drink less soda, or cut back on the sweets.

Indeed, a teacher-librarian I interviewed recently called it 'an approach to life' (Lupton manuscript). Thus, inquiry learning as a pedagogy and curriculum design involves:

1) questioning frameworks

2) information literacy / information seeking processes

3) an action research cycle
