      ASSESSMENT INFORMATION
    • 13. Writing Test DesignGrades 4 and 7 and High School
      Assessments at grades 4 and 7 administered over two days; writing component of English I, II, and III administered on Day 1 of test (with reading component on Day 2)
      Field tests embedded for grade 7 and English I, II, and III
      No thematic link between the reading and the writing test in high school
      Abbreviated stand-alone field test for grade 4 every three years
    • 14. Open-Ended Response
      Body of evidence—they don’t have to support everything they say.
      If they do get a literal response (i.e. “they both served in Viet Nam,” “they were both old”), then they cannot get a 2.
      They must make a non-literal connection.
    • 15. Open-Ended Response
      Shorter rubric—looking for strong, implicit connection
      • They may not write outside the box or double space. They get 10 lines—plenty of room to make a 3. Only first 10 lines will be scored.
      • One 2 OERs that count (3 total, but one is a field test)—one will be a single piece and one will be a crossover. The field test will be one or the other .
    • 16. Open-Ended Response
      • Adjusted 2/3 line—5% 3s on field test
      • Short answer will be about 1/3 of the reading score—right now it’s 24%
