Teaching with the End in Mind

Presenter: Frances Basich Whitney, Pajaro Valley Unified School District

Description: Learn how we are connecting SBAC Claims and Targets to CCSS standards to help align instructional planning with testing expectations.  Hear how we are linking the KDS alignment documents, the Smarter Balanced Achievement Level Descriptors (ALDs), and the INSPECT Itembank to 1) help administrators leverage a constructive focus on “the test”; and 2) show teachers how to use the Itembank to provide students exposure to unfamiliar item types.
