Communication Arts, Grades 3, 7, and 11. I: Gather, Analyze and Apply Information and Ideas. Assessment Annotations for the Curriculum Framework.
Missouri State Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education, Jefferson City. Div. of Instruction.
This document includes the left-hand column ("What All Students Should Know") and the center column ("What All Students Should Be Able To Do") from "Missouri's Framework for Curriculum Development in Communication Arts K-12." Next to these two columns has been added a column which includes assessment notes for those grade levels which will be tested in the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP). The annotations found in this column are intended to provide information to administrators, curriculum directors, and teachers concerning what is or is not "fair game" for the new statewide performance assessment in communication arts. At the top of the assessment notes column, the grade level of the test in question is identified (third, seventh, or eleventh). Below this heading, the knowledge benchmark statement from the left-handed column is repeated. Below the knowledge benchmark statement, information is given on each of the performance benchmarks found in the middle column. If the letter is followed by the words "Grade 3 (or 7 or 11) state assessment," this benchmark is considered fair game for the assessment at that level. If the benchmark is assessable on the statewide test but is not fair game for assessment until the next higher testing level, the annotation will say, "Beyond 3rd (or 7th) grade state assessment." Not all of the skills identified here as fair game for a state test will show up on the test in any given year. (RS)
