Part ii why revise the cca and pos l.jpg
Part II: Why Revise the CCA and POS?

  • To assure alignment with emerging national and international standards and research in all areas

  • The Kentucky Board of Education determined that the Program of Studies should be reviewed and revised accordingly


Part ii why the revisions cont l.jpg
Part II: Why The Revisions? (cont.)

  • To better organize, clarify and focus the Core Content Assessment standards to guide instruction and assessment

  • To draft the Blueprint for the 2007 assessment and beyond (new NCLB requirements)

Big ideas l.jpg
Big Ideas

Current brain research suggests a key factor that distinguishes expert learners from novice learners is one’s ability to organize thinking by big ideas (National Research Council 2000)


Big ideas17 l.jpg
Big Ideas

  • Big ideas bring relevance to the classroom and “have enduring value beyond the classroom” (Wiggins and McTighe)

  • Big ideas help promote transfer of learning from year to year.


Slide18 l.jpg

What do I know about the Program of Studies Revised 2006 and Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

Test Your Knowledge!


The program of studies l.jpg

The Program of Studies Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

….. It’s the LAW!!


Purpose of the pos l.jpg

Purpose of the POS Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

The Program of Studies defines the minimum standards for all students in Kentucky


Pos organization l.jpg
POS Organization Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • Big Ideas

  • Related Academic Expectations

  • Enduring Understandings

  • Skills and Concepts


The core content for assessment l.jpg

The Core Content for Assessment Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

….. It’s the TEST!!


Purpose core content for assessment 4 1 l.jpg
Purpose: Core Content for Assessment 4.1 Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • Represents Kentucky’s Academic Expectations and is a subset of the content standards in the Program of Studies

  • Is not a comprehensive curriculum or course of study


Purpose cca 4 1 l.jpg
Purpose: CCA 4.1 Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • Identifies content for inclusion on state assessment and provided focus for 2007 item development

  • Provides parameters for KY teachers and assessment contractors to design the state assessment items


Cca organization l.jpg
CCA Organization Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • Domains (e.g., SC = Science)

  • Grade Span and Level (Elementary, Middle, High and Primary-EP, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, High School - HS)

  • Subdomains (e.g., Physical Science)

  • Organizers (e.g., Motion and Forces)

  • Specific numbered assessment standards

  • Depth of Knowledge ceiling for state assessment


Organized by levels l.jpg
Organized by Levels Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • End of primary, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, high school

  • Ensures continuity and conceptual development in a content area across levels


Organized using bold and italicized statements l.jpg
Organized using Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?Bold and Italicized Statements

  • Bold = state assessed

  • Italicized = supporting content


Organized using parentheses l.jpg
Organized using Parentheses Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • If there is a list inside parentheses with an e.g., preceding it, that means the examples included are meant to be just that, examples.

    (e.g., car, airplane, train)


Organized using parentheses29 l.jpg
Organized using Parentheses Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • If the list is NOT preceded by an e.g., the list is to be considered exhaustive and only those items will be assessed.

    (car, airplane, train)


Addition of verbs for each content area l.jpg
Addition of Verbs for each content area Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

  • Represents how students will be expected to demonstrate their knowledge, concepts and skills on the state assessment

  • Contributes to understanding the depth of knowledge and cognitive complexity expected for the state assessment


Sample cca standard l.jpg
Sample CCA Standard Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

AH-05-1.1.1

Students will analyze or explain the use of elements of music in a variety of music.

DOK 3

Under this standard are listed the elements of music (rhythm, tempo, melody, harmony, form, timbre, dynamics) and specifically what will be tested regarding each element.


Combined documents completing the structure l.jpg
Combined Documents… Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?Completing the structure

  • Look at the example combined documents.

  • Share what you find with others at your table.


Depth of knowledge dok is l.jpg

Depth of Knowledge (DOK) is… Core Content for Assessment, Version 4.1?

Deep understanding.

Depth of knowledge dok l.jpg
Depth of Knowledge (DOK) Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education.

  • Indicates the cognitive demand limits for the state assessment

  • Defines the “ceiling” or highest DOK level for each Core Content for Assessment Standard for the state assessment

  • Guides item development for the state assessment, classification of test items, and alignment to Kentucky standards


Dok cont l.jpg
DOK (cont.) Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education.

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires assessments to “measure the depth and breadth of the state academic content standards for a given grade level” (U.S. Department of Education, 2003, p. 12)


Remember depth of knowledge l.jpg
Remember: Depth of Knowledge… Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education.

  • Is descriptive, not a taxonomy

  • Focuses on how deeply a student has to know the content in order to respond

  • Is not the same as difficulty


Depth of knowledge l.jpg
Depth of Knowledge Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education.

  • Assigning depth-of-knowledge to content standards and assessment items is an essential requirement of alignment analysis

  • Four levels of depth of knowledge were used for assessment analysis and alignment:

    Recall and Reproduction – Level 1

    Skills & Concepts – Level 2

    Strategic thinking- Level 3

    Extended thinking – Level 4


Depth of knowledge activity l.jpg
Depth of Knowledge Activity Wisconsin Center for Education Research and the National Institute for Science Education.

  • Look at the DOK Support Materials.

  • In groups, use the Support Materials to sort the sample assessment items into DOK levels.
