DOK as: • A Mindset -and- • Within the Context of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) All Licensed Educators; Variety of grade and content areas Terminology Considerations Content area/Grade level Tally and Grouping Parking Lot Depth of Knowledge (DOK) DOK within the context of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) Intended Outcomes: • • • • Participants will gain a basic understanding of DOK and its purpose as it applies to instructional practice, particularly within the framework of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) Participants will have engaged in practice with rating academic goals with a DOK level Participants will gain a basic understanding of the purpose, structure, and benefits of Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) Participants will grasp the process of writing a Statement of Intended Learning for their own content area/grade level Overview DOK within the context of the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) Item Examples and DOK PARCC / CMAS samples: http://www.parcconline.org/samples/ite m-task-prototypes “increased rigor; deeper understanding” High DOK in MC items is difficult but possible. See Scientific Literacy Handout. Handout: Samples of Goals for a Term Please collaborate at your table/with your group (if applicable) and determine the DOK level of two goals (refer to DOK handouts if necessary) ..and why • Note: Consensus ideal but not required Share out/Discussion of ratings Explanation of this type of goal (Statement of Intended Learning) [5 min break?] Background/Purpose • SB 10-191; 50% Student Growth • Pre-post concept; Assessment Collaboratives • Aligned with the Teaching and Learning Cycle • Provide flexibility and autonomy to their creators Definition: Measurable instructional goals that are based on the academic standards and established for a specific group of students (usually a class) over a set period of time (usually a term) SLOs are NOT: a simple computation of pre-post assessment score differences; results based on only ONE measure or assessment instrument; an “add-on” for teachers engaged in effective teaching practices 2013-14 Pilot Components/Form Striving for Higher DOK levels should be a mindset that applies to the Teaching/Learning Cycle in general. The DOK level of the Statement of Intended Learning in your SLO should be matched by the same level DOK for: • Assessment (items; rubrics) • Learning Targets (by default) • Progress Monitoring (looking for evidence) Individually or with colleagues, write a first draft of a Statement of Intended Learning while referring to the CO Academic Standards. Keep in mind your intended level of DOK.
