What is Smarter Balanced?
DOK 1:
What kind of cookie is it?
What is oatmeal?
What is a raisin?
DOK 2:
How do you bake it?
How do you follow a recipe?
DOK 3:
DOK 4:
How would you bake the cookies at a
higher altitude?

Review the Task Specifications (including DOK, claims and targets)
(consider DOK and SBAC)
Thank you!
Smarter Balanced is the name of a state-led consortium that is developing assessments aligned to the CCSS in ELA and math
What are the overall learning goals and expectations, including cognitive demand, of the unit?
Does the cognitive demand of the assessments match the stated learning expectations/goals?
Do the learning activities and tasks in the unit have the coherence and increasing cognitive rigor to get students there?
Can you see the value and practicality of using the CRM when unit/lesson planning?
