Classroom Diagnostic Tools
•
A set of online assessments designed to provide diagnostic information to guide
instruction, intervention, and enrichment.
•
Open for grades 6-12 and available for use in schools and in classrooms
throughout the school year.
•
Available assessments include: Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, Science,
Biology, Chemistry, Reading/Literature, and Wring/English Composition.
•
The CDT is based on content covered by the Pennsylvania System of School
Assessments and the Keystone Exams and includes an interactive reporting suite.
•
The CDT reporting system is fully integrated with the Standards Aligned System
(SAS).
•
The CDT is fully aligned to the Pennsylvania Core Standards.

CDT Expanding to Grades 3-5
• May 2014 students in grades 3-5 can participate in
the CDT.
• To finalize the operational CDT, a field test was
open from Oct 1-Nov. 27, 2013.
• Involvement in the field test helps PDE develop
successful programs and design statistically valid
assessments for all students.
• DRC is producing student-level percentile results
files for the participating sites and will posted to
eDIRECT.

Learning Progressions
What are Learning Progressions?
– Learning Progressions show the developmental sequences or building
blocks of content/skills students need to master as they progress toward
career and college readiness.
– The progressions are tied directly to the PA Core Assessment Anchors and
Eligible Content.
– The progressions are also tied directly to the Voluntary Model Curriculum
(VMC) Units and Lesson Plans and are posted on the SAS Website.
Why are they important?
– Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content provide information about what
students should know and be able to do at a given grade/course.
– Learning Progressions show how learning within a diagnostic category,
based upon the Assessment Anchors and Eligible Content, develops across
grades, not just within a given grade/course.

Classroom Diagnostic Tools Diagnostic Categories Skills
List for Mathematics
Geometry (one sample diagnostic category with skills)
The diagnostic category Geometry includes questions about geometric figures and
transformations. Students will be asked to demonstrate such skills as:
•Determine the area of triangles, special quadrilaterals, or irregular or compound polygons
•Determine the volume of right rectangular prisms
•Find side lengths or the area of a polygon
•Represent three‐dimensional figures using nets
•Determine the surface area of triangular and rectangular prisms
•Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures
•Identify or describe properties of all types of
•triangles
• Use and apply the triangle inequality theorem
• Describe the two‐dimensional figures that result
•from slicing three‐dimensional figures
•Identify and use properties of angles to write and solve equations
•Find the area and circumference of a circle
•Solve real‐world and mathematical problems involving area, volume, and surface area of two‐and three‐dimensional objects
•Identify and apply properties of rotations, reflections, and translations
•Describe a sequence of transformations that exhibits the congruence or similarity between two congruent or similar figures
•Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two‐dimension figures
• Apply the Pythagorean theorem or its converse to solve real‐world and mathematical problems

Classroom Diagnostic Tools
CDT – A PDE developed diagnostic tool to support
instruction and advance learning
“Achievement gains are maximized
in context where educators
•increase the accuracy of classroom
assessments,
•provide students with frequent
informative feedback, and
•involve students deeply in the
classroom assessment, record
keeping, and communication
process.
In short, these gains are maximized
where teachers apply the principles
of assessment for learning.”
