GOOD
MORNING!
The big questions…
• How do we ensure that the learning in grades K-2
prepares students for the rigor of STAAR?
• How do we create developmentally appropriate
assessments for young learners?
• Which data are important to collect?
• How can I use the new data to plan for instruction and
intervention?
the vibe
STAAR
State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness
5
And aren’t we ALL about
READINESS?
6
But how do we know if the students are
ready for success
on a rigorous test like STAAR?
Kindergarten – Grade 2
• Academic Readiness
• STAAR starts in grade 3
• Learning starts every day in every classroom
• We are all in this together

Connect
the Dots
But…
• We don’t have performance standards set for K-2
• We don’t have universal collection tools
• Many state assessment tools only measure a small
domain of learning

What does it mean to be a teacher of
academic readiness?

So…
• K- 2 performance has to increase faster than other
grades for students to be successful over time
• We have 2-3 years.
• We have the tools – but need the structures
Thinking about the Standards?

Process

Readiness Standards
≈ 30% of assessed TEKS
≈ 65% of STAAR
– IMPORTANT for the next grade level
– IN-DEPTH instruction
– BROAD and DEEP ideas

Supporting Standards
≈70% of assessed TEKS
≈35% of the test
– INTRODUCED in the current
grade but emphasized in a
later grade

Process Standards
–Tools to KNOW

Access
–Ways to SHOW

Process Standards
Assessed in CONTEXT
[Logical Pairings]
 ≥75% questions in Math (Grades 3-8)
 ≥40% questions in Science
 ≥30% questions in Social Studies
≈ 82%

Process Standards
What Content Area?
interpret oral, visual, and print material by identifying
the main idea, predicting, and comparing and
contrasting.
REMEMBER
NOT
MEMORIZE
Process Standards
• Most process standards start in K-2
• Most process standards stay through high school

Kindergarten- Grade 2 Snapshots
• TEA only developed materials for tested grades
• But as we all know…
– All grades play a role
– Early learning matters
– Standards align between and among grade levels

Assessment Options
• Test
• Performance Task
• Structured observation
Developmentally Appropriate
• Reading
– Shared Reading
– Independent Reading
• Math
– Concrete
– Representational
– Abstract
• Science/Social Studies
– Process
Collecting Data
• Must be at the SE level
(genre for reading)
• Over time cumulative – aggregated assessment
• Point in time – summative assessment
Some Important Considerations
• Novelty
– Got it the way I taught it
– Can apply it
– Context or Developmental Levels
– Process Skills
• Over time cumulative – aggregated assessment
• Point in time – summative assessment
Over time cumulative
Aggregated Assessment
• Collect data throughout the year on all SEs
• Assess readiness standards with more
questions/tasks to ensure transfer of learning
• Combine into one data report
Point in Time
Summative Assessment
• End of year assessment
• Assess linked (*) standards
• Beware false positives
– Grade 3.3B 54%
– Grade 2.3A 88%

Collecting Data Math
• Aligned standards
– Readiness (3 questions each)
– Process Problem Solving (2 ways)
• Used strategy
• Got it right
select addition or subtraction to solve problems using two-digit
numbers, whether or not regrouping is necessary
