New National Core Arts Standards
envision students learning all 3
Artistic Processes in all classes
But the relative emphasis on
each Process varies,
depending on class type
Cornerstone Assessments
• Curriculum-embedded
• Engage students in applying their knowledge
and skills in an authentic and relevant context
• Anchor the curriculum around the most
important performances that we want
learners to be able to do (on their own)

How will we MANAGE
nationwide piloting
and benchmarking?
beta Site: dev.CTcurriculum.org
(final name will be ShareAssessment.org circa May 2015)
Site enables Multiple
Teachers/Piloters to
Upload Student Work
to Same Task
Manage Student Work and Scorers
Basic Statistical Analyses
+ Export to Excel for Further Analysis
dev.CTcurriculum.org enables any user to:
•
•
•
•
Create standards-based units with embedded assessment tasks;
Upload and insert links to files in various formats, including video;
Make units public, private, or accessible only to designated users;
Assign others varied levels of permission (access) that allows them to –
– provide threaded feedback and suggestions for improvement;
– participate in editing; and
– upload student work to the task and enter their scores.
• Select benchmark (anchor) student work to illustrate levels of
achievement on units/tasks;
• Assign work – specifically or randomly – to scorers for blind scoring, a
crucial step in benchmarking and calibration processes;
• Manage groups of scorers, monitoring which have completed their
assigned task and communicating with those who have not;
• Perform basic statistical analyses on scores and scorers, to identify
outliers and determine inter-rater reliability; and
• Clone existing units/tasks and scoring scales for future use or editing.
