California Common Core Standards for Biola School of Education
Transcript of California Common Core Standards for Biola School of Education
Smarter Balanced Assessments
Additional Tools and Resources
College- & Career-Ready
Standards and Assessments
Unpacking the Common Core State Standards
Focus strongly where the Standards focus: narrower and deeper
Coherence: think across grades, and link to major topics within grades
Rigor: require conceptual understanding, procedural skill and fluency, and application with intensity
Shifts in Mathematics
K-5 Domains for
Balancing informational & literary text
Text complexity- close reading with rich and rigorous evidence-based conversations
Writing uses evidence from text sources to inform or support an argument
Building transferable academic vocabulary
Shifts in ELA/
How to Read the Standards
CCSS ELA Domains
RL -Reading: Literature
RI- Reading: Informational Text
RF- Reading: Foundational Skills
SL- Speaking & Listening
In order to effectively prepare teachers to educate students in the CCSS approach what activities in your course are you going to keep, change or delete?
Select one standard from the ELA comparison slide.
Brainstorm ways to prepare your students to meet this standard in their observations, Student Teaching etc.
This is specific to your course. Consider your content and course objectives as you develop this activity.
What are some ways we can promote/prepare out teachers to be 21st Century educators in mathematics?
What are the current educational needs of K-12 students?
Turn to the people around you and discuss this.
Put your thoughts on a post it.
Extended projects demonstrate real-world writing and analytical skills
May include online research, group projects, presentations
Require 1–2 class periods to complete
Included in both interim and summative assessments
Applicable in all grades being assessed
Evaluated by teachers using consistent scoring rubrics
Assessment System Components
Assessment System Components
Smarter Balanced is a state-led consortium developing assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards in English language arts/literacy and mathematics that are designed to help prepare all students to graduate high school college- and career-ready.

The new ESEA CCR will call for:
1. Raising standards for all students in ELA and Math
2. Developing better assessments aligned with college and career-ready standards
3. Implementing a complete education through improved professional development and evidence-based instructional models and supports
2009 California adopted the CCCSS, along with 44 other states
2010 California educators met to enhance these standards
2013-2014 is the last year the current CST is expected to be used.
2014-2015 school year, the CCCSS assessments are expected to be up and running.
The added standards were meant to:
Fill perceived gaps in the CCSS
Match the rigor of the CCSS and California’s existing standards
Significantly enhance the CCSS
California Added 15% to the Common Core
College and Career-Ready Standards
* To achieve President Obama's stated goal to ensure that all students are ready for college and careers when they graduate high school.
* A blueprint for a reenvisioned federal role in education through a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA)
*Developed by the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices
*A voluntary State-led effort
*Includes parents, educators, content experts, researchers, national organizations and community groups from 48 states, 2 territories and the District of Columbia
*The CCR and Common Core grade-specific standards are necessary complements—the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity—that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate.
The Common Core State Standards Initiative
CCR --> CCSS:
Common Core State Standards
Why did CA make this change?
To ensure that our students are:
Meeting college and work expectations
Prepared to succeed in a global economy
Provided with rigorous content and application of higher order thinking skills
RH- Reading History/social Science
RST - Reading Science, and Technical Subjects
WHST - Writing History/Social Science, Science, and Technical Subjects
Literacy in History/Social Science, Science, and Technical Subjects (Gr. 6-8, 9-10, 11-12)
Uses Computer Adaptive Technology for Summative and Interim Assessments
Assesses the full range of Common Core in English language arts and mathematics for students in grades 3–8 and 11 (interim assessments can be used in grades 9 and 10)
Measures current student achievement and growth across time, showing progress toward college and career readiness, allowing for growth models
Includes a variety of question types: selected response, short constructed response, extended constructed response, technology enhanced, and performance tasks
Formative Assessment Practices and Online Reporting
Research -based, on-demand tools, resources, and professional development materials
Built-in accommodations for students with disabilities and English learners
