INSPECT Common Core Assessments 15-16

Each year, a new set of INSPECT Common Core Interim Formative and Summative Assessments are provided with updated item types and variety.

The assessments provided below are created using Standard Schedules. The Standard Schedules and accompanying assessments are created as a starting point for common assessment development.  They are meant to be revised, edited, renamed, tagged and shared to meet the unique goals of your district.

Find Standard Schedules here:  https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B-8QUIcUBpK-fkt1Z0xTdk81VUR3SDdhVXRnUUFZOUlXSVlJeVNkeGdLX092Zm5QQ3A3RzQ 

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 assessments may vary based on the item requirements provided by SBAC or PARCC. The appropriate assessments are shared to a district account for your System Administrators to access.

NOTE: Summative and End of Year Assessments: Districts in an SBAC state should use the Key Data Systems summative assessments.  Districts in a PARCC state, should use the the end-of-year assessment.

The summative assessments reflect the Smarter Balanced item specifications and released blueprints. The end-of-year assessments reflect the PARCC evidence tables and blueprints.

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

NOTE: Items on assessments that you want to use should be locked within the Itembank by your Illuminate System Administrator(s) so that questions are not accidentally used for formative or other assessments.

What's Available?

What's Available?

There are four main types of assessments available: Interim Formatives, Checkpoints, 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.)

Assessment Types

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

Description:

Key Data Systems has designed a set of pre-built Interim Formative Assessments (IFA) that can be modified by the Illuminate System Administrators or TestAdmin User to meet specific needs. IFAs have been built for grades K-11 for English language arts, and grades K-8 for math, as well as high school math for both integrated and end-of-course pathways. Each IFA is named by color to represent the approximate time of year the assessments should be given.

To go along with the IFAs, we have also built a set of color-coded base standard schedules to note which standards are tested during which administration. These standard schedules are also intended to be modified to fit each district’s specific pacing. We recommend finishing up the interim process by using our Summative Assessments.

  • Orange Interim Formative Assessment: Administered early October
  • Green Interim Formative Assessment: Administered early December
  • Pink Interim Formative Assessment: Administered early February
  • Blue Interim Formative Assessment: Administered before the end of the school year (Offered for grades K-2 to provide an end-of-year assessment)

 These assessments:

  • Are aligned to pre-built instructional standards schedules developed with input from numerous school districts.
  • Are customizable to match each district’s specific needs.
  • Three assessments available at most grade levels to allow for year-round progress monitoring
  • Can be duplicated and edited.
  • Can have titles changed (i.e. iYOUR DISTRICT NAME/ACRONYM  SBAC - Grade 1 ELA CCSS Interim Formative Assessment Orange 2015-2016).
  • Can be revised to match your district pacing and technology needs.
  • Allow for users to remove items that are selectable text item types, if you are not going to administer the tests online.
  • Can 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).

Grade Levels:

  • Available in grades K-11 for ELA and K-8 for math, as well as for high school math (Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2) and integrated / end-of-course pathways

Description:

In order to assess students on their ability to utilize the knowledge and skills they have learned with the Common Core State Standards, Key Data Systems offers a set of three Performance Tasks in both ELA and math for grades 3-12 as part of our library of pre-built assessments. Each Performance Task includes a student booklet and teacher booklet including detailed rubrics for ease of scoring. The Performance Tasks assess students on multiple standards focusing on real-world topics in which they must use their combined knowledge and skills gained through standards.

Each ELA Performance Task features a number of passages followed by short text constructed response, multiple choice, and matching tables research questions that must be completed during the first session. During the second session of the task, students must complete a full-length essay focusing on a specified task using what they have learned from the texts and questions seen in the first session.

Each math Performance Task focuses on a real-world problem in which students must use various math skills appropriate to their grade level to find a solution.

These are manual assessments with materials attached to the assessment.  The INSPECT Performance Tasks were designed by Key Data System as paper-based assessments.  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 3-8 and 11 for ELA
  • Available for grades 3-7 for Math and High School Math

Description:

In order to help determine which students should be included in accelerated, middle school math, Key Data Systems has created a Middle School Math Acceleration Placement Test. This test is for advanced 6th grade students looking to be challenged in an accelerated, middle school math pathway, which would allow them to complete Algebra I by the end of 8th grade. Giving this test to students at the end of grade 6 will help to determine which students are ready for an accelerated pathway.

We recommend that students who score 2650 or above be considered for an accelerated pathway. The accelerated course should not omit content (e.g., acceleration should not occur by skipping an entire grade level of content). This is recommended for accelerated pathways beginning in grade 7, in which students would complete the content of 7th grade, 8th grade, and the High School Algebra I course or the High School Math I course in grades 7 (Compacted 7th Grade) and 8 (8th Grade Algebra I). This will enable students to reach Calculus or other college level courses by their senior year.

Grade Levels:

  • Available for grade 6

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 SBA cut points. If you would like to try creating and using these performance bands in your district, please review the information below. 

Above are the performance bands that Key Data Systems currently recommends for CCSS/SBAC aligned assessments.  Key Data Systems is currently evaluating these - with recently released SBAC student data - and may have some slight modifications later in the school year.  In any case, Key Data Systems feels that the performance bands above are more accurate than the previous “default bands” (90-80-70) used by some districts to algin with grading or CST performance bands.

The names of the performance bands have been adjusted to match California state testing reports.

We recommend that districts look at the standards assessed on the KDS base assessments and make any changes, based on their own pacing.  The assessments are based on KDS “base” standards schedules, which may not match a district's pacing.  We strongly recommend against simply using the assessments, as is, unless the base standards schedules match your pacing.
