INSPECT Common Core Assessments 13-14

Key Data Systems is an educational research, data management and systems development company. As a partner with Illuminate Education, Key Data System Clients have access to their INSPECT Itembank and various assessments.

What's Available?

There are three main types of assessments available: interim formatives, summatives, and performance tasks.

Both the interim formative and summative INSPECT Common Core assessment types contain items aligned with Webb's Depth of Knowledge, Bloom's Taxonomy, SBAC Claims & Targets, as well as the Common Core standards.

The item types featured within the assessments may include:

  • Mutliple choice – traditional 4 options, 1 correct answer
  • Multiple choice with multiple correct responses – items requiring students to solve for each option
  • Constructed response – open-ended items that use rubric scores
  • Explicit constructed response – open-ended items with a single or small range of correct answers that are automatically scored
  • Evidence-based selected response – two part multiple choice items that require students to provide evidence for the correct answer
  • Technology-enhanced – items that require students to utilize a number of technology features to answer questions (drag and drop, selectable text, graphing, etc.)

Each of the assessment types is described in further detail in the sections below.

Interim Formative Assessments

Navigation: Assessments tab > List Assessments > Click clear and search buttons > Select Type: Itembank> Search - Grade, CCSS, orange/green/pink, interim, Algebra (Geometry, Algebra 2, Integrated Math)

Sample Naming Protocol:

  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math CCSS Pink Interim Assessments 13-14
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X ELA CCSS Pink Interim Assessments 13-14

Description:

The INSPECT CCSS Interim Formative Assessments are intended to be given throughout the year as interim/benchmark assessments covering specific standards scheduling. These assessments can:

  • be duplicated, as they are not published.
  • have titles changed (i.e. instead of Key Data Sys - Algebra 1 CCSS Green Interim Assessment 13-14, it should be changed to - YOUR DISTRICT NAME/ACRONYM Algebra 1 CCSS Green Interim Assessment 13-14).
  • be revised to match your district pacing and technology needs. Remove items that are selectable text item types if you are not going to administer the tests online.
  • modified to enable question groups that you wish to report the results on.

Grade Levels Covered:

  • Available for grades K-11 in ELA and grades K-8 in math.
  • Available for secondary math courses: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and Integrated Math I, Integrated Math II, and Integrated III.

Performance Tasks

Navigation: Assessments tab > List Assessments > Click clear and search buttons > Select Type: Assessment>Search - Performance

Sample Naming Protocol:

  • Key Data Sys - Grade X ELA Performance Task
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math Performance Task

Description:

The INSPECT Performance Tasks are intended to be given on paper, not online. Users can use Responses>Enter/Edit to enter assessment scores.

  1. If a district is looking to administer the Performance Tasks as assessments at the beginning of the year, it is recommended to administer the prior year's performance task (i.e. Grade 5 takes the Grade 4 PT).  Otherwise the students may not have had the opportunity to learn some standards/skills required.
  2. Since Performance Tasks cover a wide range of skills and standards they are recommended to be administered towards the end of the school year, most likely in spring.
  3. The current grade level Performance Tasks can also be used as instructional tools to help teachers and students better understand the complexity of the Common Core and the skills students need to be successful on the Performance Tasks.  

Grade Levels Covered:

  • Available for grades 3-8 and 11 for ELA and math.
  • Will be available for 9-10 ELA as well as integrated and course pathways for math for the 14-15 school year.

Assessment List:

  • Key Data Sys - Grade 3 ELA Performance Task  
  • Key Data Sys - Grade 4 ELA Performance Task  
  • Key Data Sys - Grade 5 ELA Performance Task  
  • Key Data Sys - Grade 6 ELA Performance Task
