GED, HiSet, TASC College Standards TSI Assessment 5 Set at Exit-Level Standards are set at exit or mastery level Demonstrate mastery of content and skills Offer educators and students a transparent view of what is expected

at exit Allow all stakeholders to gauge student preparedness for college, job training, entry and middle-skill employment 3/8/2017 6 Not Curriculum Education standards are not a curriculum They provide the road map for the targeted, systematic use of a curriculum

Schools, communities and educators choose their own curriculum, which is a detailed plan for day-to-day instruction Clear standards provide educators with specific student performance indicators which drive instructional practice. 3/8/2017 7 Content Areas English Language Arts & Literacy (pp. 13-22) Mathematics (pp. 23-32)

and problem solving Focus on mathematical processes/practices and college and career readiness Benchmarks written on basis of progression levels Benchmarks written to align with K-12 standards and are much more rigorous

ESL - How Are These Different? 2008 2016 Focus on basic personal communication skills Focus on proficiency skills required for academic environments

Less rigorous Emphasis on all 4 skills-speaking, listening, reading and writing. More rigorous How? Unpacking the Standards To unpack standards means to do a close reading of the standard and, using evidence from it, be able to determine what students need to

know and be able to do to meet the demands of that standard. Whats in a Standard? what learners are expected to do to demonstrate mastery Skills situations where learners apply understanding of concepts and mastery of skills

Context* Concepts information or ideas that learners are expected to know Example: Skills, Concepts and Context Content Area: Math Subarea: II.8 Financial Literacy

Standard: Develop and use an economic way of thinking and problem solving useful in ones life as a knowledgeable employee, consumer, provider, and investor. Benchmark: Calculate and compare simple interest and compound interest as it applies to saving, borrowing, and lines of credit. What do students need to be able to do (skills)? Calculate Compare In what context?

Saving Borrowing Lines of credit What do students need to know (concepts or content)? Simple interest

Compound interest Sample classroom activity: Backward Design a good thing or a bad thing? Backward Design is a method of designing educational curriculum by setting goals before choosing instructional methods and forms of assessment. Whats next?
