      The Common Core State Standards:

 Are aligned with college and workforce expectations;
 Are clear, understandable and consistent;
 Include rigorous content and application of knowledge
  through high-order skills;
 Build upon strengths and lessons of current state
 Are informed by standards in other top performing
  countries, so that all students are prepared to succeed
  in our global economy and society; and
 Are evidence-based.
                 The Standards

English Language Arts        Mathematics
          Overview of CCSS vs GLEs/GSEs

 GLEs/GSEs are a blueprint for assessment
 CCSS represent what students should know and be able
    to do
   Some CCSS are not found in GLEs/GSEs
   Some GLEs/GSEs are not found in CCSS
   Identical expectations in both sets of standards but
    appear in different grade levels
   Identical expectations in both sets of standards but a
    different focus
   CCSS are clearer and more specific than GLEs/GSEs

      NCSC GSEG: The new alternate assessment

 Rhode Island is part of the 19-state NCSC GSEG consortium to
    develop the new alternate assessment.
   AAGSEs will be replaced with learning progressions that lead directly
    to the CCSS.
   Test design will include fully-developed performance tasks. These
    replace the teacher-developed activities that are currently the
    foundation of the RIAA model.
   RI’s Community of Practice includes teachers of students with
    significant cognitive disabilities, content specialists, administrators,
    and content area teachers that will work with the GSEG to develop
    curriculum materials aligned to the CCSS.
   Goal: To develop assessments supported by curriculum, instruction,
    and professional development to ensure that students with significant
    cognitive disabilities achieve increasingly higher academic outcomes
    and leave high school ready for post-secondary options.
  English Language Proficiency Standards

 ELPS: English Language Proficiency Standards
   ELPS are being “amplified,” not altered.

   New edition of ELPS will:
    Contain expanded example topics and supports, as well as
     connections to the Common Core State Standards
    Provide samples of what to expect for every level of linguistic
     complexity, vocabulary usage, and language control
    Outline the characteristics of each level of language development
    Offer expanded illustrations of how teachers can contextualize the
     standards within lessons and activities
    Show how all English learners can take on complex challenges by
     connecting language functions at each development level (1-5) to
     the same cognitive function
