PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples

PARCC: Overview of Common Core State Standards Assessment Samples | Tech ideas for collaboration | 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.

Edudemic's curator insight, February 14, 2013 11:14 AM

Blogging is a digital skill that every teacher and student should have. Its a great way to expand upon and share the learning that is happening both in and out of the classroom, and to engage students in ongoing discussion on the subjects that they’re learning about. Finding the best way to set up classroom blogs for your students (or an individual blog for yourself) isn’t always obvious. There are a lot of choices out there for blogging platforms, and we’re going to take a look at a couple of the most popular ones, and a couple that are designed especially for teachers and students.

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad

How To Capture Ideas Visually With The iPad | Tech ideas for collaboration | Scoop.it

"Visual recording is what it sounds like it’d be. As opposed to recording audio, visual recording captures visuals, though not necessarily in photographic form. The process of visually capturing ideas with the iPad isn’t terribly complex in concept. If you can think of concept-mapping, you’ve halfway there."

Thank you for follwoing my topic. I hope that it is helpful for you. I like what I see at your site. Also, I am curious about the conference on your other scoop.it site. It would be great if I could attend or present next time. I would be happy to stay in contact to learn more.

I am not a doodler, though my video work obviously requires thinking visually.  I am exploring the world of visual notetaking which has always fascinated me, plus I've seen several people  using sketches on Periscope videos to communicate concepts on the new platform. Looks like fun, either by hand or with apps.
