Important reading for school librarians working to assist teachers in finding informational text that is differentiated in reading levels.

Fluency is already an issue... how to balance it with text complexity is going to be a huge issue as we are shifting to the Common Core. How do we do this? Is there anywhere we can get this guidance?

Knowing the research behind text complexity is critical to understanding the call for more complexity.

The CCSS crafters examined college freshman textbooks and career manuals.These texts typically measure at a Lexile score of 1450.This Lexile measure was used as a benchmark for college and career readiness (CCR).Grade level Lexiles were then scaffolded in reverse, defining grade level Lexile expectations as stated in the Common Core Appendix A.

Sample Common-Assessment Items Released, Traffic Crashes Server

Sample Common-Assessment Items Released, Traffic Crashes Server | CCSS and Text Difficulty | Scoop.it

Looks like curiosity killed the cat... or crashed the server. :) Tell me there aren't some eager beavers out there who can't wait to see what the PARCC assessment items are going to look like.  

 

The newest round of sample test items from PARCC are aimed at helping teachers transition to the Common Core State Standards and prepare for the PARCC assessments by showing how key shifts in the math and English/language arts standards are "integrated into the design" of the new computer-based tests, stated the consortium.

 

ELA items focus on "texts worth reading" and "questions worth answering." The items are linked to the measured standard and how it connects to PARCC's Model Content Frameworks.  Check all @ http://www.parcconline.org/samples/item-task-prototypes
