Implementing Standards-Based Multiple Measures for IASA, Title I Accountability Using TerraNova Multiple Assessment.
Jang, Younghee
This paper describes the processes that one school district, the Visalia Unified School District (California), went through in establishing a standards-based assessment and accountability system using multiple methods. First the district's standards-based assessment and accountability system and the methods used to establish it are described, and the approaches the district explored in setting the performance standards are outlined. After exploring publisher-developed standards, the district settled on setting the performance standards separately for each grade as recommended by the California Department of Education. The multiple measures used by the school district include norm-referenced and performance-based assessments from the TerraNova Multiple Assessments published by CTB/McGraw-Hill and their Spanish equivalents. The second part of the paper presents achievement results along with the adequate yearly progress target and disaggregated achievement data. The paper concludes with a discussion of implications for district and state policy for implementing the standards-based assessment and accountability system. (Contains 16 tables and 22 figures.)
