The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) have established priorities that are meant to guide the development of local curricula to help teachers center their instruction around a smaller number of conceptually larger ideas and transferable processes. The CCSS focus could not be clearer: to develop learners with the capacity to apply their learning to novel situations without prompting or handholding by teachers. This is what is required to be “college and career” ready! To honor the intent and emphases of these standards, local assessment practices must evolve. No longer will multiple-choice tests of factual knowledge and basic skills serve as adequate measures.
In this webinar, we’ll consider the implications of the Common Core Standards for local (classroom and district) assessments in mathematics. More specificially, we will:
• unpack the Core Standards to identify the needed assessment evidence.
• review an assessment planning framework to guide design of local assessments.
• explore design tools and task frames for designing performance assessments and rubrics aligned to the CCSS.
• view examples of mathematics assessments aligned to the CCSS.
• review a set of supportive web-based resources.
