with assessments that are aligned to the
TEKS.

Standards

TEKS considered critical for
success in the current grade
or subject and important for
preparedness in the grade
or subject that follows
TEKS that are emphasized
in a previous or subsequent
grade; they play a role in
preparedness for the next
grade
DEFINITIONS
TEKS consist of KS (Knowledge Statement)
and SE (Student Expectation)
Example:
KS: E1.1: Students understand new
vocabulary and use it when reading and
writing. The student is expected to:
SE: (B) analyze textual context (within a
sentence and in larger sections of text) to
distinguish between the denotative and
connotative meanings of words;
WHAT’S THE DEFINITION?
What is the dictionary definition for the verbs in the
TEKS?
 ANALYZE – break down into components or
essential features, to examine carefully and in detail
so as to identify causes, key factors possible results
 INFER – to derive by reasoning; conclude or judge
from premises or evidence
 CONCLUDE – to determine by reasoning ; deduce
 PROVIDE – to make available; furnish
 SUPPORT – to maintain or advocate (a theory,
principle, etc.); to furnish corroborating evidence for

DEFINITIONS
ONE MORE TIME
Rigor: determined by the verb of the SE
Content: “what” will be assessed
Context: “how” the content will be assessed
RIGOR
Cognition rigor comes from the VERB in the TEKS
 Rigor is not based on Bloom’s Taxonomy, but on definition
of the verbs in the TEKS.

Example KS:
Student analyze, make inferences and draw conclusions
about expository text and provide evidence from text to
support their understanding. Students expected to:
13B draw conclusions from the facts presented in text and
support those assertions with textual evidence.
CONTENT
This is the WHAT we are teaching.
 Content knowledge and concepts tested are tied to the
exact wording of the TEKS.
 Requires students to have prior knowledge of the content
and concept.

KS: Student analyze, make inferences and draw conclusions
about expository text and provide evidence from text to
support their understanding. Students expected to:
13B draw conclusions from the facts presented in text and
support those assertions with textual evidence.
CONTEXT

This is the HOW the content should be assessed,
such as “with text evidence” or “provide evidence”
Example
3.13B draw conclusions from the facts presented
in text and support those assertions with
textual evidence.
UNPACKING THE STANDARDS

DOES THE QUESTION TEST THE SE?

ELA TEKS are assessed through reading passages
Writing common assessment items requires us to
know what the student expectation for our grade level
is asking
We need to know how to write test items that assess
the knowledge and skill statement and the student
expectation if BISD students are to be successful
We are all going to practice doing this by using
reading passages.

STARTING WITH THE END IN MIND

Now that we have the assessment items, what
about the instruction?
IMPLICATIONS FOR STAAR
Teach
and assess TEKS to the
extreme of the TEKS/SE. Go to
the farthest depth (thinking cognitive alignment) and
complexity (concept, context, &
vocabulary alignment)
FINAL THOUGHTS

What did you gain from this?

I will have a better understanding of the depth and
complexity of my content standards.
I
will be able to better evaluate my students
with assessments that are aligned to the
TEKS.
