  • The PARCC Vision PARCC states have committed to building a K-12 assessment system that: Builds a pathway to college and career readiness for all students, Creates high-quality assessments that measure the full range of the Common Core State Standards, Supports educators in the classroom, Makes better use of technology in assessments, and Advances accountability at all levels.
  • To address the priority purposes, PARCC will develop an assessment system comprised of multiple components that is computer-delivered and will use technology to incorporate innovations. PARCC will also use technology throughout the design and implementation of the assessment system. The overall assessment system design will include a mix of constructed response items, performance-based tasks, and computer-enhanced, computer-scored items. The PARCC assessments will be administered via computer, and a combination of automated scoring and human scoring will be employed.
  • Modeling links classroom mathematics and statistics to everyday life, work, and decision-making. It is the process of choosing and using appropriate mathematics and statistics to analyze empirical situations, to understand them better, and to improve decisions. Quantities and their relationships in physical, economic, public policy, social and everyday situations can be modeled using mathematical and statistical methods. When making mathematical models, technology is valuable for varying assumptions, exploring consequences, and comparing predictions with data.”
  • The Crosswalk is twofold. First, it charts out AASL learning standards in Language Arts, History, Science & Technology, and Writing and and pairs them with all applicable Common Core skill activities. For example, Common Core provides many opportunities for students to find, evaluate, and select appropriate sources to answer questions (AASL 1.1.4). Charted examples list activities such as integrating knowledge and ideas using visual, print, and digital sources and taking notes or summarizing (CC.3.R.I.7, CC.4.R.I.7). The second component of the Crosswalk charts the Common Core Standards by grade level and looks for information skill components where they exist. A library media specialist can readily see where the opportunities are to offer curriculum support. For example, third graders, working on determining craft and structure of text and its point of view (CC.3.R.I.4), can develop this skill by looking at diverse sources that provide conflicting point of view or bias (AASL 1.1.7). Library media specialists must be aware that Common Core will change our focus from literature appreciation to building information skills. Experience and training in reading in the content area will be especially helpful. Overall, this could be a job saver to our profession in being vital contributors in the school curriculum!

    1. 1. Preparing Your Library for PARCC Presented by: Sandra Paul Director of Technology Sayreville Public Schools
    2. 2. Today's Student and Technology
    3. 3. Librarian
    4. 4. Where are the librarians? I wonder why the role of the teacher librarian in K12 is not surfaced in this discussion. I know that the University of California folks value their research librarians, but most of our schools in California don't have a single educator at the school site that has information literacy expertise at a time when our kids need it the most!

    8. 8. What is PARCC?  Partnership for  Assessment of  Readiness of  College and  Career
    9. 9. PARCC Priorities  Student are college-and career-ready or on track  Assess the full range of the Common Core  Measure the full range of student performance  Provide data for accountability  Provide data during the academic year to inform instruction, interventions and professional development in a timely manner  Incorporate innovative approaches throughout the assessment system
    10. 10. Assessments Definition: the evaluation or estimation of the nature, quality, or ability of someone or something. Synonyms:evaluation, judgment, rating, estimation, appraisal, analysis, opinion
    11. 11. Why online assessments? “The rate of change in the global knowledge economy is impacting everything we do— including everything we do in education. It is our responsibility as leaders to promote, identify and raise up this innovation in education and use it to change the landscape of teaching and learning”. Gene Wilhoit, Executive Director of the CCSSO

    21. 21. AASL and Common Core The school library professional as leader, instructional partner, information specialist, teacher, and program administrator is critical for teaching and learning in today’s schools. The school librarian leads in building 21st-century skills by collaborating with classroom teachers to design engaging learning tasks that integrate key critical thinking skills, technology and information literacy skills with subject area content. In addition, the school librarian provides a library program that contains multiple instructional avenues and resources in various formats for the authentic application of information literacy skills.
    22. 22. Librarian and Common Core  Focus on Non-fiction  Technology Literacy Skills  Inquiry-based learning  Analysis, Synthesis  Research and using resources  Communication and collaboration  “While English classes will still include healthy amounts of fiction, the standards say that students should be reading more nonfiction texts as they get older, to prepare them for the kinds of material they will read in college and careers. In the fourth grade, students should be reading about the same amount from “literary” and “informational” texts, according to the standards; in the eighth grade, 45 percent should be literary and 55 percent informational, and by 12th grade, the split should be 30/70.” BY MARCARONSON Blog from SLJ
