  • Thank you for participating in this important conference and for playing such critical roles in raising the bar on student achievement in your communities and states. The following presentation is an overview of the of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act K-12 grants at the U.S. Department of Education in the context of our overall vision for strengthening our school systems throughout the nation.

Common Core State Standards Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Mississippi Department of Education Common Core State Standards and Assessments Mathematics and English/Language Arts Lynn J. House, Ph.D. Deputy State Superintendent
  • 2. What is the CCSS Initiative?
    • An initiative of the National Governors Association (NGA) and the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO)
    • A significant and historic opportunity for states to collectively develop and adopt a core set of academic standards in Mathematics and English/Language Arts
  • 3. Why is this initiative important?
    • Provides consistency across states
    • Allows for equal access
    • Prepares students to compete globally
    • Allows for more focused professional development
    • Allows for the development of a common assessment
    • Provides the opportunity to compare and evaluate policies that affect student achievement across states
  • 4. What are the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)?
    • Fewer, clearer, and higher
    • Aligned with college and work expectations
    • Rigorous content requiring higher-order thinking and application of knowledge
    • Internationally benchmarked
    • Evidence-and/or research-based
  • 5. Shift from “What’s Taught” to “ What Students Need to Be Able to Do”
    • To succeed in 21 st century college and careers, students need to be able to:
    1. Solve problems 2. Manage oneself 3. Adapt to change 4. Analyze / conceptualize 5. Reflect on / improve performance 6. Communicate 7. Work in teams 8. Create / innovate / critique 9. Engage in learning throughout life
  • 6. Instructional Delivery System
    • At a minimum, to successfully implement Common Core State Standards and Assessments, TEACHERS must:
    • Know how to plan intentionally for rigorous and deep learning experiences.
    • Know how to design and utilize formative assessment that ensures retention and the ability to apply learning .
    • Be able to create a learning environment that fosters deep thinking , engagement of students , integration of subject areas, and problem-based learning experiences.
    • Must be able to analyze and use a variety of data to drive instructional practice.
    • Must embrace continuous professional learning.
  • 7. CCSSO/NGA Process Fall 2009 -Released draft of College/Career Readiness Standards to states and public January 2010 -Released several drafts of K-12 Standards to states February 2010 -Released draft K-12 Standards to the public June 2, 2010 -Released Final K-12 Standards June 2010 -Adopted by MS State Board of Education
  • 8. Common Core State Standards for Mathematics
    • Key design considerations:
    • Individual grade levels in K-8
    • Solid foundation for grades K-5 in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals
    • Solid foundation for grades 6-8 in geometry, algebra, and probability and statistics
    • Conceptual categories such as algebra, functions and modeling in grades 9 - 12
  • 9. Mathematics Alignment Examples
    • CCSS Math 3 rd grade
    • Fluently multiply and divide within 100.
    • Understand two fractions as equivalent .
    • MS Math 4 th grade
    • Recall multiplication and division facts.
    • Model and identify equivalent fractions .
  • 10. Alignment of CCSS for Math and MS Math Framework
    • Initial alignment study done “in-house” and additional study done by SEDL
    • Overall alignment is not good
    • -Many specifics in the CCSS are addressed in the MS Math Framework but at a lower
    • grade level(s)
    • -Several of the MS Math Framework
    • objectives are not mentioned in the
    • Common Core
    • CCSS for Math are more rigorous than the MS Math Framework
  • 11. Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects
    • Key design considerations:
    • Sections divided by Strands for K-5 and 6-12
      • Reading
      • Writing
      • Speaking and Listening
      • Language
  • 12. ELA Alignment Examples
    • CCSS ELA 3 rd grade
    • With guidance and support from peers and adults, strengthen writing as needed by revising and editing .
    • MS ELA 3 rd grade
    • Use an appropriate composing process (e.g., planning, drafting, revising, editing , and publishing/sharing) to compose or edit .
  • 13. Alignment of CCSS English Language Arts (ELA) and MS ELA
    • Initial alignment study done “in-house” and additional study done by SEDL
    • Overall alignment is good
    • -Few specifics in the CCSS are not addressed
    • in the MS ELA Framework or not addressed
    • at the same grade level
    • -Many of the MS ELA Framework
    • objectives and sub-objectives are not
    • mentioned in the Common Core
    • Rigor is comparable
  • 14. RttT Assessment Proposals
    • The Process:
    • Proposals were due from multi-state consortia on June 23, 2010
    • Awards were made in September, 2010
    • New Consortia tests to replace current state NCLB tests in 2014-2015
    • Two Comprehensive Assessment Proposals Funded:
      • Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
        • 26 states, 31 million students K-12
      • SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium ( SBAC)
        • 31 states, 21 million students K-12
      • Note: 12 states currently in both and 6 states in neither

  • 15. RTTT Assessment Program Requirements
    • Build upon shared standards for college/career readiness;
    • Measure individual growth as well as proficiency;
    • Measure the extent each student is on track, at each grade level tested, toward college/career readiness by high school completion, and provide information that is useful in informing:
          • Teaching, learning, and program i mprovemen t;
          • Determinations of school effectiveness ;
          • Determinations of educator effectiveness for use in evaluations and provision of support to teachers/principals;
          • Determinations of individual student college/career readiness , through high school exit decisions, college course placement into credit-bearing classes, and/or college entrance.

  • 16. PARCC – Two Types of Summative Assessments
      • One to three tasks that assess a
    • few “keystone” standards/topics
    • Given at three points during the
    • school year, near the end of quarters
    • Results within 2 weeks to inform
    • instruction and intervention
    • Taken on computer, with mixed
    • item types
    • Scored entirely by computer for
    • fast results
    Scores from both focused & end-of-yr. assessments will be combined for annual accountability score. Center for K – 12 Assessment & Performance Management at ETS FOCUSED ASSESSMENTS END OF YEAR COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT
  • 17. PARCC: Focused Assessments 1 and 2
    • In a single session/class period, students in grades 3 - 11 will:
    • ELA: Read texts, draw evidence to form conclusions , and prepare a written analysis
    • Math: For each of 1 or 2 essential topics (standards or clusters of standards), complete 1 to 3 constructed response tasks

    • Over several sessions/class periods, students will complete a project-like task that draws on a range of skills. Examples:
    • ELA: Locate digital information, evaluate and
    • select sources, and compose an essay or
    • research paper
    • Math: Perform a multi-step performance task
    • that requires application of mathematical
    • skills and reasoning and may require
    • technological tools
    • Speaking/Listening task: Conducted in classroom,
    • not used for accountability , scored by teacher.
