Priorities
Determine whether students are
college- and career- ready or “on track”
Provide tools to assess student learning
and support instruction during the
school year
Generate data, including growth
metrics, for accountability uses
Report comparable data across schools,
districts and member states
Use technology to
create efficiencies
and engage students
in the testing process
Goals …
Develop tests
worth taking
Texts worth reading
Essays worth writing
Problems worth solving
Accessible to all students
Report results
worth using
Valid
Reliable
Timely
Actionable
Show me the EVIDENCE
Think of examples of why EVIDENCE is such a
relevant word in education today.
Evidence Centered Design can
inform a deliberate and systematic
approach to instruction that will
help to ensure daily classroom work
leads to all students meeting Ohio's
New Learning Standards.
Evidence-Centered Design (ECD)
in the Classroom - Start with the end in mind.
PARCC is using ECD to create the gr 3-11 assessments.
Learning Targets/Objectives
Classroom Assessments Formative/Summative
Design begins with the
inferences (claims) we
want to make about
students—should be
connected clearly to
Ohio's New Learning
Standards - What
should students be able
to DO or KNOW?
In order to support
claims, we must gather
evidence----what can
teachers point to,
underline or highlight
to show that students
are making progress
toward doing what we
claim they can do?
Classroom Activities
Classroom activities
(tasks) are designed to
elicit specific evidence
from students in
support of claims.
How Does it All Connect for
Student Achievement?

As of now, the
NJDOE has not
decided what (if any)
PARCC
Assessments will be
used towards a
graduation
requirement.

•
•
K-1
Grades K-1 Tasks

Computer- and paper-based
Built from released PBA tasks
Can be used for assessment at
individual, classroom, school levels
• Grades 3-12
• Performance-based activities
• Spontaneous oral response to oral
prompt; share findings of research in
an oral presentation
Summative AssessmentsMeasure and
report achievement and growth
Performance-Based
Component
(PBA)
ELA/Literacy
Writing essays drawing evidence
from sources, including multimedia, some comprehension
Math
Solving multi-step problems that
require reasoning and address real
world situations
COMBINATION Human/Machine
Scored
End-of-Year Component
(EOY)
ELA/Literacy
Demonstrating comprehension of
literary and informational texts
Math
Demonstrating understanding of
concepts and procedures and
carrying out short applications
MOSTLY MACHINE SCORABLE
Overall Score = Combination of PBA + EOY

Evidence Tables
What students sound like, write like,
do math like, read like - when they are
doing/knowing what is detailed in the
standards.
Performance Level Descriptors
Rubric explaining specific evidence to
look for in student responses to
assessment items by score category.

ELA EOY and Math PBA Fall 2014
Schools in 14 States & DC
Participated in the Field Tests
● Over 1 million students are
participating
● Nearly 16,000 schools
● 1-3 grades per school, 2
classrooms per grade
● 10,000 items covering 21
different tests.
● 75% was online
● 25% was paper/pencil
In Ohio:
Schools: 950
Districts: 430
Students: 172,753
In NJ (Approximately 75% Field Tested):
Schools: 1276
Districts: 445
Students: 10,000+ students
Technology
Number and Types of Devices
• Rule of thumb: In a school with 3
tested grades, at least one computer
for every 2 students in the largest
tested grade
• Desktop, laptop, netbook, and thin
client/VDI computers (Windows,
Mac, Chromebook), and tablets
• All devices must meet the established
hardware, operating system, and
networking specifications
http://www.parcconline.org/technology
• Technology purchases
should consider
instructional needs, not
only assessment

Collaboration
● PARCC ELCs working
together to build new
assessments
● Educators sharing
lesson ideas
○ across the hall
○ across districts
○ across states
● Resources like the
EQuIP Rubrics and
Achievethecore.org site
Shifting From Aligning To
Implementing
2012-2014
● Provide feedback on test
development tools
● Build understanding of:
o What is PARCC?
o Goals of PARCC
o PARCC & CCSS
o Changing the way educators
view assessment
o Preparing for the technology of
PARCC & CCSS
● Collaborate with other educators on
how to make instructional shifts
● Use PARCC practice/sample items
and tutorials to gain a better
understanding of how to assess the
new standards in ELA/Math
2014-2015
● Rethinking our instructional time
during testing windows o project based learning
o collaborative learning
● Rethinking the way we assess
learning
o Assessment is a tool for
gathering evidence of
learning
o formative vs summative
assessment
● 20% project - applying
skills/learning to real world,
authentic tasks
Key Messages and Storytelling
● Tests meant to be a part of instruction, not a
separate, unrelated event
● Tests that are aligned to standards - and will
match instruction aligned to standards
● Valid and reliable - making a distinction
● Tests that are being developed by educators.
Educators will continue to have oversight of
the process.
● Showing is more powerful than telling
