High School Assessments The high school assessments will include a range of item types, including: innovative constructed response extended performance tasks selected response (all of which will be computer based). **In addition, there will be college-ready cut scores on high school tests in mathematics and ELA/Literacy, which will signify whether students are ready for entrylevel, credit-bearing college coursework. Earlier tests will be aligned vertically to ensure students are on and stay on - the track to graduating ready for college Model Content Frameworks Model Content Frameworks serves as a bridge between CCSS and the PARCC assessments were developed to help design items for the PARCC tests and to support educators’ implementation of the Common Core. Model Content Frameworks Math Grades 3-8 This document for each grade addresses the following: Examples of Key Advances from Grade # to # Fluency Expectations or Examples of Culminating Standards Examples of Major Within-Grade Dependencies Examples of Opportunities for Connections among Standards, Clusters or Domains Examples of Opportunities for In-Depth Focus Examples of Opportunities for Connecting Mathematical Content and Mathematical Practices Content Emphases by Cluster Examples of Linking Supporting Clusters to the Major Work of the Grade Model Content Frameworks Math Grade 3 Example Model Content Frameworks Math Grade 3 Example Model Content Frameworks Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II This document for each grade addresses the following: Course Overview Examples of Key Advances from Previous Grades or Courses Discussion of Mathematical Practices in Relation to Course Content Fluency Recommendations Pathway Summary Table: AI-G-AII Pathway Assessment Limits for Standards Assessed on More than one End of Course Test Model Content Frameworks Math Algebra II Example Model Content Frameworks Math Algebra II Example Model Content Frameworks Math Algebra II Example Model Content Frameworks ELA/Literacy Grades 3-11 This document for each grade addresses the following: Narrative Summary of ELA/ Literacy Standards for Grade # ELA/ Literacy Content Frameworks Chart for Grade # Key Terms and Concepts for Grade # ELA/ Literacy Model Content Framework Chart Reading Complex Texts Writing to Texts Research Project For Reading and Writing in Each Module For Reading Foundation Skills in Each Module Writing Standards Progression from Grades # to # Speaking and Listening Standards Progression from Grade # to Grade # Model Content Frameworks ELA/Literacy Grades 3-11 Model Content Frameworks ELA/Literacy Grades 3-11 Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) Performance Level Descriptors indicate the knowledge, skills and practices that students should be able to demonstrate at each performance level, in each content area (ELA/literacy and mathematics), at each grade. Content- and grade level-specific PLDs are designed to inform test item development, the setting of performance level cut scores, and curriculum and instruction at the local level. Descriptors Math Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims A: The student solves problems involving the MAJOR CONTENT for the grade/ course with connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice B: The student solves problems involving the ADDITONAL and SUPPORTING CONTENT for the grade/ course with the connections to the Standards for Mathematical Practice. Descriptors Math Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims C: The student expresses grade/ course-level appropriate mathematical REASONING by constructing arguments, critiquing the reasoning of others and/ or attending to precision when making mathematical statements. Descriptors Math Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims D: The student solves real-world problems with a degree of difficulty appropriate to the grade/course by APPLYING knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for the current grade/course (or for more complex problems, knowledge and skills articulated in the standards for previous grades/courses), engaging particularly in the MODELING practice, and where helpful making sense of problems and persevering to solve them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, using appropriate tools strategically, looking for the making use of structure, and/or looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning. Descriptors Math Grades 3-6 5 Sub-Claims E: The student demonstrates FLUENCY in areas set forth in the Standards for Content in grades 36. *Sub-Claim E is only present in grades 3-6 Descriptors Grade 3 Example Descriptors Algebra II Example Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Reading Claims Text complexity The range of accuracy in expressing reading comprehension demonstrated in student responses The quality of evidence cited from sources read Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Text Complexity Three quantitative text complexity measures (Reading Maturity Metric, Source Rater, and Lexile) will be used to analyze all reading passages to determine an initial recommendation f or placement of a text into a grade band and subseque ntly a grade level. Complexity Analysis Worksheets (www.PARCConline.org), one for informational text and one for literary text, are th en used to determine qualitative measures. Trained evalu ators use these worksheets to determine a recommendati on for qualitative text complexity within the grade level, with each text defined as readily accessible, moderately c omplex, or very complex. Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Range of Accuracy Accurate Mostly accurate Generally accurate Minimally accurate Inaccurate Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Quality of Evidence Explicit evidence Inferential evidence Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Writing Claim Written expression Knowledge of language and conventions Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Written Expression Performance Level Descriptors ELA/ Literacy: Knowledge of Language and Conventions Evidence Tables Evidence Tables describe the knowledge and skills that an assessment item or a task elicits from students are grade-level specific tells how and when standards are assessed tables include standard, evidence statement, clarifications, associated practices, and calculator designation Math Evidence Tables Evidence Statement Key • this will list either a CCSS, sub-claim, grade/ course, domain, or cluster Evidence Statement Text • CCSS – will use exact standard language (ex.
