Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards
John Wood, Senior Curriculum Specialist and Kristin Moran, Research & Assessment, NWEA
Fusion 2012, the NWEA summer conference in Portland, Oregon

This presentation will explain NWEA's evolving relationship with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), our alignment of MAP and MPG to the CCSS, and changes to CCSS aligned MAP/MPG for 2012-2013. Additionally we will discuss when districts should transition to CCSS aligned MAP/MPG. This session is appropriate for those interested in the CCSS and those who will decide and inform about transitioning.

Learning outcomes:
- Understand the alignment of MAP to CCSS
- Understand the changes to CCSS aligned MAP/MPG
- Understand the questions to consider about when to transition to CCSS aligned MAP/MPG

Audience:
- District leadership
- Curriculum and Instruction

Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards

  1. 1. Transitioning to the Common Core State Standards Presenters: Kristin Moran John Wood
  2. 2. Topics for Today • MAP® Alignment to Common Core State Standards (CCSS) • From Draft Standards to the Future: NWEA’s Evolving Relationship to CCSS • Common Core Planning and Transition
  3. 3. NWEA and the Draft CCSS • The Common Core State Standards have been a major focus at NWEA. • Chief Executive Officer Matt Chapman and Chief Academic Officer Raymond Yeagley presented an analysis of a draft-version of the standards to the three organizations leading and managing the standards development process: • Council of Chief State School Officers • National Governors Association • Achieve Inc.
  4. 4. MAP® Aligned with Common Core • Aligned to the CCSS in the same way we align to existing state standards • Goal structures in reading, language usage and mathematics just as we do for existing state standards • Item pools that measure the breadth of the standards
  5. 5. Districts’ Dilemma Old Standards CCSS (+15%) Existing Curriculum New Curriculum State Summative Next Generation Assessments AYP New ESEA (CCR) or State Plan
  6. 6. From State MAP to CCSS MAP Smooth Transition Stable RIT Score Stable RIT Score Student Growth Student Growth Goal Scores and DesCartes Goal Scores and DesCartes Projected Proficiency Projected Proficiency
  7. 7. What is included in MAP aligned with Common Core? • The initial versions of the tests align to CCSS that can be assessed by using multiple-choice items. • These multiple choice items have been hand aligned by the NWEA Content Services Team. • This has resulted in a tight alignment to the standards at a granular level in each content area.
  8. 8. CCSS Alignment (hand-aligned): One Decision • Items directly aligned to grade level standard(s) – Assures each item measures appropriate content – Allows, through gap analysis, the creation of a deeper, broader pool of items – Guarantees alignment • Assessment continues to be adaptive: measures students where they are performing

  13. 13. MAP Assessment • Interim assessment to: – Measure individual student growth – Reporting categories based on CCSS – All the purposes we currently use MAP to accomplish
  14. 14. Common Core Aligned Tests: Fall 2012 • Both Client-Server and Web-Based MAP • Introduction of new items types on MAP – Increase depth and breadth of the content – Deeper assessment of a student’s depth of knowledge (DOK) • New MAP for Primary Grades (MPG) Test
  15. 15. Introducing New Item Types to Support Common Core Standards • Field test started January, 2012 – Common stimulus items – Graphing calculator items – Items with interactive elements • New items will be released to production in July, 2012 – Items will appear as field test items, and then be “promoted” to operational items when they are successfully calibrated with a RIT value
  16. 16. Common Stimulus Items • Share a common item asset with other items • Chosen adaptively: If selected, a number of items associated with the common stimulus item are presented consecutively • Common Stimulus items available in July, 2012 – Passages as the common asset – Deeper assessment of reading comprehension
  17. 17. Sample Item: Common Stimulus Item
  18. 18. Sample Item: Common Stimulus Item
  19. 19. Graphing Calculator Items • Assess standards that require graphing calculator usage • Used in secondary math (Math 6+ tests) • TI-84 on Client-Server MAP • Available on Web-Based MAP July, 2013
  20. 20. Sample Item: Graphing Calculator Item
  21. 21. New Items with Interactive Elements • Better content coverage • Deeper assessment of a student’s depth of knowledge (DOK) • More engaging test experience • Interactive elements supported in July, 2012 – Drag and Drop – Click and Pop – Hot Spot

  26. 26. Supporting Partners’ CCSS Implementation: Starting This Fall • Support CCSS plus 15% (Fall 2012) – Iowa (MAP) – New York (MAP & MPG) – Massachusetts (MAP) – Minnesota (MAP: ELA only) – Ohio (MAP & MPG)
  27. 27. Partners Moving to CCSS: Smooth Migration • Migrating to CCSS aligned test will have minimal impact to your data • Similar to an update to your non-Common Core state standards Functional Area Impact Growth No impact; comparisons are made at the Measurement measurement scale level and are not affected by changes in state standards Projected No impact; your state's current linking Proficiency study will continue to be used Goal Level No impact; automatically aggregate the Reporting data by goal structure DesCartes/PGID No impact; DesCartes/PGID will be available for the currently licensed tests
  28. 28. Common Core Planning and Transition How can we prepare and plan for the Common Core transition?
  29. 29. Reflect for a moment… What is your school/district currently doing to prepare for the transition to Common Core?

  38. 38. Other Questions to Think About… How do • Are you more interested in testing we know exactly what you when to teach? • Are you more transition interested in knowing how to CCSS students are testing in relation to CCSS? MAP?
  39. 39. Reflect for a moment… What professional development does your school or district need to support implementation of the CCSS?
