Toward a New Generation of Student Outcome Measures: Connecticut's Common Core of Learning Assessment.
Baron, Joan Boykoff; And Others
A description of ecologically valid, authentic, and integrated performance-based assessment instruments of different lengths was undertaken to measure the extent by which students meet Connecticut's Common Core of Learning (CCL) objectives. The description focuses on the students' knowledge and general understanding of science and mathematics; general communicative, quantitative, and critical thinking skills; and relevant attitudes and dispositions. Seven tasks will be accomplished to implement the assessment: (1) define essential understandings in science and mathematics; (2) select a statewide sample and solicit participation of local option schools; (3) plan and conduct the Summer Institutes for Teaching and Learning (ITL) workshops; (4) identify psychometric issues and considerations related to the validity, reliability, and practicality of the assessment instruments; (5) implement performance tasks and scoring rubrics; (6) report on the condition of science and mathematics education; and (7) release performance tasks and scoring rubrics for use in Connecticut classrooms and elsewhere. Once the assessment is implemented, it is hoped that students will construct meaning from the results. (JAM)
