• 1. Deeper Learning 1  |  www.americaachieves.org
• 2. PISA Unlike  many  tests,  including  other  interna;onal  assessments,  PISA   was  designed  from  the  outset  explicitly  to  measure  many  deeper   learning  competencies.   PISA  also  reports  the  propor;on  of  students  who  perform  at  six   performance  levels,  which  are  based  on  the  diﬃculty  of  the  tasks   students  are  asked  to  perform.  Those  at  Levels  5  and  6,  who  can   complete  the  most  cogni;vely  complex  tasks,  are  considered  “top   performers.”   2  |  www.americaachieves.org
• 3. Deeper Learning Levels Test  Ques;ons  (Level  2)   Helen  the  Cyclist   Helen  has  just  got  a  new  bike.  It  has  a  speedometer  which  sits  on  the  handlebar.   The  speedometer  can  tell  Helen  the  distance  she  travels  and  her  average  speed  for  a  trip.     Ques;on   On  one  trip,  Helen  rode  4  km  in  the  ﬁrst  10  minutes  and  then  2  km  in  the  next  5  minutes.   Which  one  of  the  following  statements  is  correct?     A.  Helen's  average  speed  was  greater  in  the   ﬁrst  10  minutes  than  in  the  next  5  minutes.   B.  Helen's  average  speed  was  the  same  in  the   ﬁrst  10  minutes  and  in  the  next  5  minutes.   C.  Helen's  average  speed  was  less  in  the  ﬁrst   10  minutes  than  in  the  next  5  minutes.   D.  It  is  not  possible  to  tell  anything  about   Helen's  average  speed  from  the  informa;on   given.   3  |  www.americaachieves.org
• 4. Deeper Learning Levels Test  Ques;ons  (Level  6)   Helen  the  Cyclist   Helen  has  just  got  a  new  bike.  It  has  a  speedometer  which  sits  on  the  handlebar.   The  speedometer  can  tell  Helen  the  distance  she  travels  and  her  average  speed  for  a  trip   Ques;on   Helen  rode  her  bike  from  home  to  the  river,  which  is  4  km  away.  It  took  her  9  minutes.  She   rode  home  using  a  shorter  route  of  3  km.  This  only  took  her  6  minutes.     What  was  Helen's  average  speed,  in  km/h,  for  the  trip  to  the  river  and  back?     Average  speed  for  the  trip:  .....................  km/h     4  |  www.americaachieves.org
• 5. Deeper  Learning  Levels   •  At  Level  6  students  can  conceptualize,  generalize,  and  u;lize   informa;on  based  on  their  inves;ga;ons  and  modelling  of  complex   problem  situa;ons.  They  can  link  diﬀerent  informa;on  sources  and   representa;ons  and  ﬂexibly  translate  among  them.  Students  at  this   level  are  capable  of  advanced  mathema;cal  thinking  and   reasoning.  These  students  can  apply  this  insight  and   understandings  along  with  a  mastery  of  symbolic  and  formal   mathema;cal  opera;ons  and  rela;onships  to  develop  new   approaches  and  strategies  for  aaacking  novel  situa;ons.  Student  at   this  level  can  formulate  and  precisely  communicate  their  ac;ons   and  reﬂec;ons  regarding  their  ﬁndings,  interpreta;ons,  arguments,   and  the  appropriateness  of  these  to  the  original  situa;ons.     5  |  www.americaachieves.org
• 6. The OECD Test for Schools A  Richer  Measure.  Assesses  knowledge  of  math,  reading,  and   science,  as  well  as  student  acquisi;on  of  key  deeper  learning   skills,  such  as  cri;cal  thinking  and  problem  solving.     Data  Rich.  Schools  get  detailed  reports  with  analysis  of  test   results  and  student  survey  data.     Manageable.  A  sample  of  between  85  (for  most  schools)  and   49  (for  small  schools)  15-­‐year-­‐old  students  is  needed.  CTB/ McGraw  Hill  administers  the  test,  analyzes  the  results,  and   produces  the  reports.  Only  3.5  hours,  including  surveys  and   breaks,  ﬂexible  tes;ng  window,  paper  and  pencil  test.   6  |  www.americaachieves.org
