INSPECT Common Core Assessments 14-15

Each year, a new set of INSPECT Common Core Interim Formative and Summative Assessments are provided with updated item types and variety. Baseline standard schedules do not change from one year to the next, just the available item types and bank of items grows over the year's time, adjusting the assessments to accommodate online testing needs.

The assessments provided below are created using a Baseline Standard Schedule set available here. It is highly encouraged and recommend to review the interim assessments and schedules, adjusting and editing them to meet the unique goals of your district.

If you need assistance with developing practices, assessments, and schedules, feel free to contact your Implementation Manager or Support.

SBAC and PARCC Support

All Key Data System INSPECT assessments support both SBAC and PARCC states. Items within the assessment may be vary based on the item requirements provided by SBAC or PARCC. The appropriate assessments should already be shared to your account.

Few assessments may have an "(i)" designation at the end of the assessment title. As Key Data Systems developed the assessments, they utilized the base standards schedules provided by Illuminate to create them.  They also included all item types that are included in SBAC and PARCC testing.  While our amazing Illuminate team is working on supporting additional Item types, some items not currently supported were removed from the original assessment. This is to note that they are in fact the original assessments, with only the items supported by Illuminate at this time. Please note that there were a relatively small number of assessments affected by this, and those that were had only one or two items removed.

If you have any questions, please contact your Implementation Manager or Support for details.

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

Sample Naming Protocol:

  • Key Data Sys - SBAC (or PARCC) - Grade ** (**SUBJECT**) CCSS Interim Formative Assessment (**Color**) 2014-2015
  • For example: "Key Data Sys - SBAC - Grade 4 Math CCSS Interim Formative Assessment Orange 2014-2015"

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 - SBAC - Algebra 1 CCSS Green Interim Assessment 14-15, it should be changed to - YOUR DISTRICT NAME/ACRONYM  SBAC - Algebra 1 CCSS Green Interim Assessment 14-15)
  • 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
  • be modified to enable question groups that you wish to report the results on
  • include questions groups in reporting such as Depth of Knowledge, Claims, Revised Blooom's Taxonomy, and Content Category (ELA only)
  • include REV2 in the title to indicate that a new revision of the assessment has been updated and made available
  • include REV2(i) in the title indicate that a new revision of the assessment has been udpated and made available, with item types removed that Illuminate does not yet support at this time
  • have Orange, Green, Pink, or Blue in the title to indicate what time of year they are to be administered, based on the first day of school (Blue is only available for Kinder and First Grade, in place of the state assessment)

Grade Levels Covered (as of 08/04/14):

  • Available for grades K-11 in ELA and grades K-11 in Math.
  • Secondary math interims include Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and High School Math 1, 2, and 3

Performance Tasks

In April 2015, Key Data Systems released a new series of Performance Tasks including Classroom Activities to support the Task A assessments. These are manual assessments with materials attached to the assessment.

SBAC 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 A (CCCS)
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math Performance Task A (CCCS)
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X ELA Performance Task A - Classroom Activity
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math Performance Task A - Classroom Activity
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X ELA Performance Task B (CCCS)
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math Performance Task B (CCCS)
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X ELA Performance Task CCSS*
  • Key Data Sys - Grade X Math Performance Task CCSS*

Description:

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

  • Performance Tasks are aligned to the specifications of the SBAC Performance Tasks
  • Authors of the Performance Tasks are Key Data Systems item writers who have completed extensive training in writing Performance Tasks, Claims, Tagets, Depth of Knowledge, and how to write high-quality, SBAC similar Performance Tasks
  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Performance Tasks marked with an * are assessments provided during the Fall 2014 installation

Grade Levels Covered:

  • Available for all grades 3-11 for ELA

Performance Bands

All assessments are defaulted to use your District Default performance band. Some districts will be trying out a new set of performance bands to try to better align with predictions for SBAC cut points. If you would like to try creating and using these performance bands in your district, please review the information below.

 

Since, there were no student or performance level results released from the SBAC field testing last year, there is no data to correlate back to in terms of SBAC performance levels. These cut points are most likely far more accurate than the old, traditional 90-80-70 scales. Key Data Systems has run significant item analysis on each item used over the past year and the item bank content is performing very well statistically. 

When actual SBAC results are released after the spring testing these performance bands will be revised for the 2015-2016 school year. The above performance band could be used this year, and are likely better than default of 90-80-70.
