WVDE INTERIM RESOURCES
WEBPAGE
http://tinyurl.com/wvnxg-interims
• When attempting to access the interim
assessment resources, users must sign in
using their email addresses (@k12.wv.us)

use the same format and terms that will
be used on the summative test.
Purpose of WVDE Interim
Resources
• Questions aligned and/or written to Claims
and Targets
• Gives students exposure to how the
questions will be written/standards be
assessed
• Practice opportunities to learn how to
answer new question types, like
constructed response, select text,
matching tables, etc.

ELA and Math Interim Assessments
• Anticipated available Jan. 2015
• We anticipate that each grade will have
one Interim Comprehensive Assessment
available this year.
ELA and Math Interim Items
• Same as summative items
–
–
–
–
–
All items were developed together
Assess CCSS
Use Universal Design principles
Same accessibility resources
Provide evidence to support claims in
mathematics and English language arts/literacy
• Different from summative items
– Separate open, non-secure item pool
Two Types of Interims
Interim Comprehensive
Assessments (ICAs)
Interim Assessment Blocks
(IABs)
• Same design as
summative tests
• Assess the same claims
and standards
• Yield overall scale
scores, performance level
designation and claim
score information
• Assess smaller sets of
targets
• Address specific content
areas
• More flexible
• Results reported as:
– Below Standard
– At/Near Standard
– Above Standard
Interim Administration
Characteristics
• Administered online
• Uses same delivery software as
summative
• Non-machine scored items will be hand
scored by teachers
• Machine scored items will have same
scoring rules as summative tests
Characteristics Continued
• Grade flexibility
– Available for grades 3-11
– Interims from any grade can be used,
depending on purpose.
• Both ICAs and IABs can be administered
multiple times during year.
– Tests draw from same interim item pool.
– Students may see some of the same items
more than once.
