using a random selection method 6 Assignment of Performance Tasks How will a school know which topic was assigned to it? In-box feature in Online Reporting System (ORS) and/or portal What if a student changes schools? Depends upon the timing of change If a student has already started the performance task in school X and moves to school Y prior to task completion, he or she will continue the performance task that was

originally assigned to him/her in school X If a student has not started the performance task in school X prior to moving to school Y, he or she will be assigned a new performance task based on the topic assigned to the new school 7 Accommodations/Supports Accommodated forms One accommodated performance task per topic Most accommodations must be set up in advance in TIDE The following accommodations can be set up in the TA Interface at the time of testing:

Second language glossary Braille American Sign Language (ASL) Spanish translation 8 Performance Task Update TA will access the Performance Task by category (topic)

Interim background Interim Comprehensive Assessment (ICA) and Interim Assessment Block (IAB) information IAB availability updates Hand scoring overview 11 A Balanced Assessment System 12 Interim Assessment Components

Will be available during the winter of 20142015 with a gradual rollout as the item pool supports 13 Interim Assessment Interim Items Same as summative items Items developed together based on CCSS Universal Design principles used Same accessibility resources incorporated Evidence to support claims in mathematics and English language arts/literacy provided

Different from summative items Constructed response items will be scored locally Separate open, non-secure pool 14 Two Types of Tests Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICAs) Use same blueprint as summative tests Assess same claims and standards Same components and item types Yield overall scale scores, performance level designation and claim score information In Delaware, ICAs can be administered up to twice a year

Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) Assess smaller sets of targets Address specific content areas Provide more flexibility Report as Below Standard, At/Near Standard, and Above Standard Unlimited administration during the year 15 Interim Assessment Administration Characteristics Grade flexibility Available for students in grades 3 through high school Interims from any grade can be used, depending on

purpose ICAs and IABs can be administered multiple times during the year Tests draw from same interim pool Students may see some items more than once Decisions about test choice and frequency determined by local choice 16 Initial Interim Assessments ICAs will be offered in both ELA and Mathematics

(Jan. 2015) Initial IABs available (Jan. 2015) Dependent upon item availability in the interim pool Additional items will be field tested in 2014-15, expanding the interim pool Blocks with an asterisk are not available for the 201415 school year Fully accessible Fixed form online, to become adaptive as item pool allow 17

Interim Assessment Scoring Scoring of non-machine scored items is a local responsibility ICAs and some IABs have items that are not machine-scored Teacher Hand Scoring System will be provided to enter scores Scoring of tests Same scoring rules as summative tests

25 Interim Assessment Hand-Scoring Plan Overview Focuses on Training Effective administration Scoring Instructional usage Professional development and resources 26

Three Phase Approach PHASE I PRE-HAND SCORING (DECEMBER) Focuses on developing background knowledge and preparing for the administration of the Smarter Interim Assessments to be released in January PHASE II HAND-SCORING TRAINING (JANUARY) Focuses on the hand-scoring process to promote integrity, validity, and reliability of scoring and alignment with summative scoring PHASE III POST-HAND SCORING (JANUARY SUMMER) Focuses on the entry, interpretation, and usage of scores

while planning forward to enhance the process. 27 Further Information Carolyn Lazar Office of Assessment [email protected] (302) 735-4090 E-mail any additional questions or comments 28

Smarter Summative and Interim Comprehensive Assessment Online Reporting System Office of Assessment December 2014 Topics Online Reporting System updates for Summative and ICA Overview and use of Smarter assessment score reporting

30 Online Reporting System (ORS) Available via the DeSSA Portal Application provides two components Score Reporting Test Management Center 31 Scores Reported Two overall scale scores will be reported on the vertical scale

English language arts/Literacy for both computerized adaptive tests (CAT) and performance tasks (PT) components Mathematics for both computerized adaptive tests (CAT) and performance tasks (PT) components Error bands of the overall scores Achievement level will be reported Level 1 to Level 4 Claim scores 32 Claim Scores

Student performance will be reported for each claim English language arts/Literacy Reading Writing Listening Research Mathematics Concepts and Procedures Problem Solving and Modeling and Data Analysis Communicating Reasoning 33 Claim Scores

Claim scores are reported in three descriptive categories Below Standard At/Near Standard Above Standard Claim scores are derived from student performance on items/questions under each claim an estimate of the possible score (theta) for the claim an estimated score in the reporting category based on pre-determent criteria 34

Interim Assessments Test administrations vary Purpose and intended use of test scores Test time/scheduling Repeated testing Scoring procedures Non-standardized testing conditions Cautions and limitations in the use of test scores No state level summary No district and school levels summaries Limited comparability of test results across schools and districts Cautions in using Interim assessment scores to compare with and/ or predict summative assessment scores

35 Summative Reporting Test scores on Smarter summative assessments will not be available until test is completed Each assessment includes computerized adaptive tests (CAT) and performance tasks (PT) components Each component has different types of items selected response and constructed response (CR) items CR items on the Smarter Summative Assessments will be scored by scoring agency at the state level Overall score and claim scores can be generated when

all items are scored Based on overall scale score, student achievement level is determined 36 Online Reporting System (ORS) Mathematics ICA Achievement Level Accessing lower level information in ORS system by use of magnifying glass to drill down 37 Online Reporting System (ORS)

Mathematics ICA Claim Level 38 Online Reporting System (ORS) Mathematics Summative Achievement Level 39 Online Reporting System (ORS) Mathematics Summative Claim Level 40
