                 SBAC Item Types-Not the same old test


 Current ISAT is 100% multiple choice, SBAC is…….

 Computer adaptive, selected response
 Technology enhanced,[drag and click]
 Constructed response [paragraph or two]
Emphasis on Performance Assessment [@50% of SBAC tests]:
 Performance tasks, multiple standards inform, use texts, video, speaking,
     listening, writing

              [Reading]


Content area: Reading is the trunk/whole tree

Standard 2: Comprehension/Interpretation [a big branch]

Goal 2: Acquire strategies and skills for comprehending text
[smaller branch]

Objective 1: Determine author’s purpose for writing various texts.

             Evidence Centered Design: Claim/target
             [ELA/Literacy]


Claim 1: Students can read closely and analytically to comprehend a
range of increasingly complex literary and informational text.

Target 4: Reasoning and Evaluation-use supporting evidence to
justify/explain inference

Target 4 informed by Standards:RL-2, RL-3, RL-6
All items are written to the ASSESSMENT TARGETS-targets are
informed by one or more standards or parts of standards, targets
provide evidence to support the claim

Claim 1: Concepts and Procedures: Students can explain and apply
math concepts and carry out math procedures with precision and
fluency

Target 1: Represent and solve problems involving multiplication and
division

Target 1 informed by Standards 1,2,3, and 4 [grade 3]

All items are written to the ASSESSMENT TARGETS-targets for math
claim one are informed by clusters which encompass one or more
standards or parts of standards, targets provide evidence to support the
