PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples

PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples | Shoaf's Common Core Corner | 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.
