A Balanced Assessment System
Available 2015-16 in North Dakota
Digital Library on Formative Assessment
•
•
•
An online collection of resources aligned to the
Common Core that will support K-12 teachers’
use of the formative assessment process.
• Assessment literacy modules
• Exemplar instructional modules
• Education resources submitted and vetted
by teachers
Teachers can rate materials and share their
expertise with educators across the country.
Accounts can be established by DPI for all
educators in districts requesting access.
Districts should contact Rob Bauer for account
creation ([email protected]).
Interim Assessments – Available in 2015-16
Available 2015-16 in North Dakota
•
Optional assessments administered in grades 3-8 and high school
•
•
•
For North Dakota, the Interim Assessments will likely be designed with
only machine-scorable test items.
At the high school level, the assessments may be administered in grades
9, 10, 11, and/or 12. Allow schools to check in on student
progress and provide information to inform instruction
Flexible administration options
•
•
Interim Comprehensive Assessments use the same design as the
summative assessments.
Interim Assessment Blocks focus on smaller sets of related standards
and provide more detailed information for instructional purposes.
The Smarter Balanced Assessment System
•
•
Administered in the last 12 weeks of the school year
Students will receive composite scores for each subject
area and the following claim-level scores:
•
•
English language arts
• reading, writing, listening, and research;
Math
• concepts and procedures, problem solving and
modeling/data analysis, and communicating reasoning

Summative Assessment Testing Windows
Each district will establish a schedule for the administration of the Smarter Balanced summative
assessments using a testing window as defined below:
Grades 3–8
• Testing shall not begin until at least sixty-six percent (66%) of a school’s annual instructional days
have been completed, but no sooner than March 16, 2015.
• Testing may continue up to and including the last day of school.
Grade 11
• Testing shall not begin until at least eighty percent (80%) of a school’s annual instructional days have
been completed, but not sooner than March 16, 2015. A typical North Dakota high school might
begin testing between April 1 and April 20, 2015, depending on the school calendar.
• Testing may continue up to and including the last day of school.
• [Note: Sixty-six percent of a school year occurs after the 120th instructional day in a 180-day year,
leaving a twelve-week window for grades 3–8 testing; eighty percent of a school year occurs after
the 144th instructional day in a 180-day year, leaving a seven-week window for grade eleven
testing.]

Times are estimates of test length for most students. Smarter Balanced assessments are
designed as untimed tests; some students may need and should be afforded more time than
shown in this table.

“We are developing the DLM
assessment where supporting
instruction is in the very design of the
assessment, not an afterthought, so
that all children can meet high
standards.”
Neal Kingston
DLM Project Director
20
• All children participate in state accountability
assessments.
• The Dynamic Learning Maps™ Alternate Assessment
System (DLM™) is an instructionally relevant system
that supports student learning and measures what
students with significant cognitive disabilities know
and can do.
21
DLM Assessment Design
• The DLM system is designed to map a student’s
learning throughout the year.
• There are two testing phases.
• The Instructionally Embedded occurs in the fall, winter,
and early spring. Students are assessed at least once on
each Essential Element that is chosen by a teacher before
instruction.
• Results factor into overall accountability reports.
22
DLM Assessment Design
• The Spring Testing window students are re-assessed
on a subset of the previously tested Essential
Elements .
• The system selects five testlets per content area.
• These also factor into overall accountability reports.
23
Essential Elements
• The Essential Elements (EEs) are specific statements of knowledge
and skills that link the academic expectations for students with
significant cognitive disabilities to grade-level standards.
• The EEs specify academic targets, while the learning map clarifies
how students can reach the specified standard.
• EEs included in the blueprint for each grade are listed in blueprint
documents.
www.dynamiclearningmaps.org
24
Assessment Results
• The DLM scoring system works differently from traditional alternate
assessments.
• The system uses the student’s performance on instructionally
embedded assessments and spring testing and compares it to the
learning map to determine the student’s level of mastery on the
Essential Elements.
• There are no raw scores, percentages, or scale scores.
25
Assessment Results
• Each student’s results will include information about performance on the
assessed EEs.
• Score reports will be provided at the individual student level and include:
• Essential Element Learning Profile
• Performance in each conceptual area
• Overall performance
26
Test Administration Time
All times noted are estimates and ranges.
• Total testing time varies depending on the number of EEs assessed and a student’s unique
learning needs.
• Testlets may be taken separately across multiple testing sessions as long as they are all completed
within the testing window.
• Instructionally Embedded Testlets: Time Per Testlet
•
•
•
5-10 minutes for mathematics
10-15 minutes for reading
10-20 minutes for writing
• Spring Testing: Total Testing Time
• 60-75 minutes in ELA
• 35-50 minutes in mathematics
