SMARTER Balanced Assessment Consortium Common Core State Standards Analysis: Eligible Content for the Summative Assessment. Final Report
Sato, Edynn; Lagunoff, Rachel; Worth, Peter
Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium
This report is a descriptive analysis of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), intended to determine which content is eligible for the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium's end-of-year summative assessment for English language arts (ELA) and mathematics in grades 3-8 and high school. The high school standards analyzed were those in grades 9-10 and 11-12 for ELA, and all conceptual categories for mathematics. All high school standards were analyzed, since which high school content will be included in the summative grade 11 assessment has yet to be determined. Outcomes of this analysis are intended as a starting point to inform discussion as the Consortium designs its summative assessment and develops its test and item specifications. This report is intended to be used with other documents the Consortium has or is developing that provide more conceptual, construct-centered, and evidence-based frameworks for its assessment design and development. Appended are: (1) Guiding Principles and Considerations; (2) Descriptions of Item Types; (3) Webb Depth of Knowledge Levels; (4) List of Analysts' Comments; (5) Eligible Content Data Workbook; (6) Preliminary Report Review--Feedback and Responses; and (7) Considerations for Next Steps--Suggestions Based on Comments from the Consortium's Technical Advisory Committee. (Contains 28 tables, 1 figure and 23 footnotes.)
