• 2. 3.2 Determine how state standards are used in CST questions Procedure Worked examples 3.3 Categorize similar test questions concept Worked examples 4 Given a set of released multiple choice test questions, teacher will Concept Lecture, worked be able to orally explain five different types of test taking examples strategies. 4.1 Explain the different types of multiple choice problem solving Procedure Worked examples tactics (e.g. educated guessing, working backwards, etc.) 4.2 Explain the various ways multiple choice test questions can be Procedure Worked examples written (e.g., which is NOT, all of the following ESCEPT, etc.) 4.3 Categorize test items based on level of questions using Bloom's Concept Lecture, worked Taxonomy as a guide examples 4.4 Demonstrate how to explain certain test taking strategies to Principle practice students 5 Given (teacher-specific) released test reporting statistics, teacher Concept Lecture/Examples will list the two areas where his/her students struggled the most 5.1 Differentiate between the five categories of test results Facts Lecture 5.3 Use results to see where course of study is content deficient Principle Practice, individual assessment 5.4 Create a plan to implement test taking strategies to students Procedure Practice, individual assessment

• 5. Assessment Item (Terminal Obj only) Notes (briefly attend to events of instruction or other details) Name and describe orally the Use of document camera to show how test is administered. Use number of questions, time allotted CDE website to show format and structure of test. and number of choices for multiple choice questions as well as explain how the test is scored Show CDE test reporting website and allow learners to analyze each Name and identify each of the of the five clusters five content clusters used by the CDE in order and describe the three social studies analysis skills used when the CST is created learners can use the website and see exactly which category cluster each question falls into. Site also gives a breakdown of the social studies analysis skills needed by students who take the test. Learners can easily see which California standards are weighted more heavily than others using information provided on the website. With a series of released test questions, learners will take the Categorize released test questions and categorize them into the appropriate content cluster. questions into one of five category clusters
• 6. Briefly describe (orally) several different types of multiple choice test questions and a strategic tactic to employ when answering each type of question. learners will practice with each other how to describe test taking skills. Learners will use teacher specific statistics to analyze their own List the two content areas where courses and try to self assess where they need to improve for the his/her students struggled the upcoming year. most on previous test Teachers will need to assess themselves and see where they need to improve their content
