Assessment Update
Dr. Gayle Potter, Director
Office of Student Assessment
Arkansas Department of
Education
Changes in 2011 - 2012
• Kindergarten students will not be administered a
state required large-scale assessment in the spring.
The Kindergarten screener remains in place.
• The American Diploma Project (ADP) Algebra II
Examination will no longer be administered.
However, please note that Algebra II will be included
in the high school assessments planned for PARCC.
Refer to Commissioner’s Memo LS-12-006 for
specific details.
• Increased numbers of students statewide will be
administered the high-stakes Algebra I online
remediation and retest in order to pass and obtain
graduation credit for Algebra I.

Changes in 2011 - 2012
• A single form of the Augmented Benchmark and
End-of-Course exams will be designated for
students who are provided the readaloud accommodation. Refer to Commissioner’s
Memo LS-12-023 for specific details.
• Embedded field test items are being removed
from the Braille version of all tests in order to
shorten testing length for blind students.
Erasure Analysis Policy
• In June, U.S. Department of Education Secretary Arne
Duncan sent a letter to chief state school officers urging
states to “make assessment security a high priority by
reviewing and, if necessary, strengthening efforts to
protect assessment and accountability data, ensure the
quality of those data, and enforce test security.”
• ADE continuously reviews security guidelines and test
administration procedures in consultation with the
Technical Advisory Committee, the Planning Advisory
Committee, and the testing contractors.
• One result is that ADE is currently developing an erasure
analysis policy that will help to further ensure the
integrity of test administration across the state.

PARCC Assessment Development and
Design
• PARCC will develop an assessment system comprised of four
components. Each component will be computer-delivered and
will leverage technology to incorporate innovations.
– Two summative assessment components designed to
o Make “college- and career-readiness” and “on-track” determinations
o Measure the full range of standards and full performance continuum
o Provide data for accountability uses, including measures of growth
– Two formative assessment components designed to
o Generate timely information for informing instruction, interventions,
and professional development during the school year
o In ELA/literacy, an additional third formative component will assess
students’ speaking and listening skills
10
PARCC Assessment Development and
Design
• Summative Assessment Components:
– Performance-Based Assessment (PBA) administered as close to the end of the
school year as possible. The ELA/literacy PBA will focus on writing effectively
when analyzing text. The mathematics PBA will focus on applying skills,
concepts, and understandings to solve multi-step problems requiring abstract
reasoning, precision, perseverance, and strategic use of tools
– End-of-Year Assessment (EOY) administered after approx. 90% of the school
year. The ELA/literacy EOY will focus on reading comprehension. The math
EOY will be comprised of innovative, machine-scorable items
• Formative Assessment Components:
– Early Assessment designed to be an indicator of student knowledge and skills
so that instruction, supports and professional development can be tailored to
meet student needs
– Mid-Year Assessment comprised of performance-based items and tasks, with
an emphasis on hard-to-measure standards. After study, individual states may
consider including as a summative component
11
PARCC Assessment Development and
Design
The PARCC assessments will allow us to make important claims
about students’ knowledge and skills.
• In English Language Arts/Literacy, whether students:
– Can Read and Comprehend Complex Literary and Informational Text
– Can Write Effectively When Analyzing Text
– Have attained overall proficiency in ELA/literacy
• In Mathematics, whether students:
– Have mastered knowledge and skills in highlighted domains (e.g.
domain of highest importance for a particular grade level – number/
fractions in grade 4; proportional reasoning and ratios in grade 6)
– Have attained overall proficiency in mathematics

PARCC Content Frameworks
• The PARCC Consortium is working to finalize content
frameworks for English language arts and mathematics
in Grades 3-8 and high school.
• These content frameworks are currently planned to be
released in late October.
• Additionally, Achieve has secured funding to create
content frameworks for English language arts and
mathematics in Grades K-2 that will connect seamlessly
with the Grades 3-8 content frameworks.
• Development for the Grades K-2 content frameworks is
set to begin soon.
