Education in NH:
A Time for Change
A TRANSFORMED ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEM
TO SUPPORT COMPETENCY EDUCATION
AND COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS
FOR ALL STUDENTS
We Need A New Goal-Line For
Public Education in the U.S.
REAL GOAL LINE
INTERNATIONAL GOAL LINE
CURRENT GOAL LINE
A Conceptual Playing Field of Preparation for College, Career and Life
“What gets measured, gets done.”
Where do the ways we assess student progress today fall inside this
learning field?

Defining College and Career Readiness
• NH has adopted the CCSS in ELA and Math and has developed an
implementation framework to drive state and local work (hardcopy
provided).
• We have expanded our definition of CCR to include knowledge, skills
and dispositions. This will inform our desired assessment and
accountability system.
Knowledge – refers to
mastery of rigorous
content knowledge across
multiple disciplines
(including but not limited
to reading/language arts
and mathematics) that
serve as a foundation for
all learning.
Skills – refer to the higherorder skills that students
need in order to extend
and apply rigorous content
knowledge in the ways that
evidence indicates are
necessary for success in
college and career.
Dispositions – Socioemotional skills or
behaviors (sometimes
referred to as habits of
mind) that associate with
success in both college
and career.
A New Kind Of Accountability ~

to accomplish the overall goal, every student college and career ready.
“Shaming and Blaming” districts, schools, educators, or students will
not accomplish the big lift we need to accomplish.
“Readiness” means students exit high school prepared to succeed in
high-quality postsecondary opportunities, whatever pathways they
choose.
The Common Core Standards are foundational to College and Career
Readiness but there are additional important dimensions.
Every student is entitled to an education that provides a foundation for
success in lifelong learning, career, and citizenship.
Causing consistently high levels of learning among young people from
widely varying backgrounds and with diverse needs will require radical
changes in current policy, practice and structure

Goal
1. States define and systematize college and career
readiness
consistent with deeper learning
2. State education systems provide
personalized learning to all students
3. States establish comprehensive assessment systems
to measure college and career readiness
4. States anchor accountability systems
with college and career readiness
5. States develop seamless pathways to college and
career
Prepare
every
student
for college
and career
New Hampshire’s Theory of Action
7
If we believe that all
students must be
college- and careerready...
Then our system must
advance students as they
demonstrate mastery of
content, skills and
dispositions…
Which requires a
comprehensive system of
educator and school
supports.

Understanding the New System - Waiver
Four principles underpin the Federal Waiver. This offers states the
opportunity to implement an alternative accountability system. 33 states
have been granted waivers to date.

College Ready Standards and Assessment
17
 NH has adopted the College and Career Ready
Standards in ELA and Math
 We believe that the CCSS and the SBAC are
“necessary, but not sufficient” in helping to define
and assess college and career readiness
 We are actively working with the Smarter Balanced
Assessment Consortium to develop a competencybased approach to assessment and accountability.
All graduating students will demonstrate
college and/or career readiness by 2017
18
A new definition of college and career readiness requires:
 Conversations with Higher Education ~
NH has engaged this conversation through the
implementation of the Common Core State Standards
across the NH IHEs
 Conversations with Business and Industry ~
NH has created a new Business Education Roundtable
to advance this discussion as the system is constructed.
Our Approach to Instruction ~ Learning Progressions:
The significant stages students go through in order to reach a
defined educational outcome
19
 As we build evidence of alternative
paths students can traverse, this
provides empirical justification for
offering students choices among
alternatives
CCSS
Progressions
 As students demonstrate that they
have reached specific stages, we
can assure them that they are on
the path to success
Curricular
Progressions
Instructional
Progressions
Learning
Progressions
 As teachers gain a fine-grained
understanding of the steps of
learning and the problems students
are likely to encounter, then they
have a basis for identifying
evidence in student work to locate
where a learner is in the
progression and for responding to
this evidence in ways calculated to
help them deal with any problems
and keep moving ahead.

SBAC Proficiency-based Learning Report

The top two priorities are:
Prioritize increasing the number of assessments
available in the SBAC interim assessment bank in
order to make these “secure.”
2. Form a working group of experts and state
representatives to create a detailed framework on
how to implement competency-based learning and
use the SBAC assessments to support this effort, to
be published by June 2013.

Transition to Balanced Assessment System
•
•
NH is a governing state for the Smarter Balanced Assessment
Consortium and will lead a task force focused on proficiency based
assessments.
A partnership with the Center for Collaborative Education and the
National Center for Assessment is ongoing to develop
performance/competency based assessments.

Student Learning Objectives (SLOs)
29
 SLOs are content- and grade/course-specific measurable
learning objectives that can be used to document student
learning over a defined period of time.
 Educators establish learning goals for individual or
groups of students, monitor students’ progress toward
these goals, and then evaluate the degree to which
educators help students achieve these goals.
 SLOs are designed to reflect and incentivize good
teaching practices such as setting clear learning targets,
differentiating instruction for students, monitoring
students’ progress toward these targets, and evaluating
the extent to which students have met the targets.

countries to see what can work to accomplish the goal.
You can’t expect innovative, groundbreaking practice if
you don’t incent it through the larger system.
A New Theory of Action is necessary.
To succeed in today’s lightening fast environment,
innovation and improvement must be completely
connected.
To integrate innovation and improvement, you need
professionals who are treated like professionals on the
ground.
This reality becomes the basis of a new Theory of Action.
