With the launch of the new Common Core Standards in California, the state has decided to eliminate most of the STAR state testing and focus on the next generation exams; only 5th Grade Science and Physical Education will continue in 2014. Across the state, all schools will pilot the new “Smarter Balanced” online computer assessments. Last year, Rosedell was chosen to pilot the 5th and 6th Grade Language Arts tests and provide feedback to the state, in addition to the regular STAR tests.
The state has notified us that our “Smarter Balanced” pilot in 2014 will be 3rd through 6th grade in English Language Arts and Math, plus a “performance task” for either subject. Performance tasks may include student research, meeting in groups for teacher-led discussions, pre-planning steps to solve a scenario and/or completing sophisticated tasks related to a “real life” problem, i.e., using math equations to create a blueprint of a community garden with a specific amount of planters, size of planters, benches, sand box etc. The window for testing will be April 7th to May 16th. Exams are expected to take about 3 to 3.5 hours total over several testing days in our new computer lab. Tests are un-timed. We purposely purchased larger monitors since the students have to toggle between two parts on the screen. Testing schedules will be created as the state provides us with more details about the pilot tests.
Parents and schools will not be provided with results in the summer since this a continuation of the “field tests” to ensure the final iteration of the exams in 2015 accurately measure the new grade level standards. According to the state, “Field testing is critical to ensure that assessment items are accessible to all students and produce results that are valid, reliable, and fair. The spring 2014 Smarter Balanced Field Test will test the performance of over 20,000 newly developed test items and evaluate the test delivery system. Items deemed suitable for use on the live (i.e., operational) tests, which will begin in the 2014-15 school year, will be used to populate the test item bank. Also, the Field Test will help ensure that the Smarter Balanced assessment items are placed on an accurate scale to determine final achievement levels as well as their corresponding descriptors.”
Parents and teachers can get a large amount of information and view actual sample test questions on the California Department of Education website; http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/sa/index.asp under “Smarter Balanced Assessment System.” Under the following headings you can view “Practice Tests” and “Sample Items and Performance Tasks.”
The Smarter Balanced Practice Tests are now available for grades three through eight and grade eleven in English-language arts and mathematics. The Practice Tests provide a preview of the Smarter Balanced assessments, but do not reflect the full range of content that students may encounter on the actual assessments.
Sample Items and Performance Tasks
The samples on the Smarter Balanced Web site illustrate the rigor and complexity of the English-language arts/literacy and mathematics items and performance tasks students will encounter on the Smarter Balanced assessments.
More information will be provided as we begin to get more detailed information at the site-level for planning the field tests this spring.
