2017 CAASPP Testing Results Information

The California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), 其中包括英语语言艺术(ELA)和数学的聪明平衡评估, was administered in the spring of 2017 for the 2016-17 school year.

整个州和地区的选举结果将于8月底或9月初公布. Individual student results will be mailed home to families in September. 下面有解释CAASPP评估的解说指南,帮助家长了解孩子的成绩.

如何进行测试

The new assessments allow students to demonstrate analytical writing, 批判性思维和解决问题的能力,以及他们在ELA和数学方面的知识.

新的智能平衡评估的结果不应与往年在标准化测试和报告(STAR)项目测试中收到的分数进行比较. 更聪明的平衡评估包括非常不同类型的测试问题和不同的计分方法.

The majority of the Smarter Balanced assessment is computer adaptive. A Computer Adaptive Test CAT是基于一个非常大的项目库,涵盖了所有被评估的领域和不同的难度水平. CAT有一个推荐的蓝图,以确保考试的结构对每个学生都是相似的. 该程序根据每个学生对前面问题的回答来选择精确的问题. 该蓝图确保以逻辑的方式管理测试问题,并确保学生的经验得到控制和适合他或她. There is an algorithm or programming language, 这是一种循序渐进的方法,根据学生的答案,告诉计算机辅助考试下一步该做什么. Therefore, the test adapts as the student takes the test. 有规则确保每个学生的考试包含与年级相适应的问题,提供了问题类型的平衡, reading passage lengths and difficulty. (Learn more about Computer Adaptive Testing)

Understanding the results

California's Assessments Grade Level ResultsThe final score is based on pattern scoring. 对学生的回答模式进行跟踪,并计算出对学生成绩的修正估计. 计算机辅助翻译考试部分的分数是根据正确或错误项目的难度来决定的, not on the total number of correct answers. 针对特定年级水平的测试题库旨在包含一个增强的测试题库,这些题库或多或少有些难度, but still match the test blueprint for that grade.

Because the program knows which questions are harder and which are easier, several students may have answered a similar number of questions correctly, 但正确回答了更有挑战性问题的学生将获得更高的分数.

智能平衡评估的另一部分是绩效任务,也称为PT. 绩效任务衡量学生跨多种标准整合知识和技能的能力——这是大学和职业准备的关键组成部分. 绩效任务将被用来更好地衡量能力,如理解深度, research skills, and complex analysis, which cannot be adequately assessed with selected- or constructed-response items.

After the responses requiring hand scoring are scored, they are merged with items that are machine scored. 每个CAT和PT的项目数量按等级跨度已由测试蓝图确定.

Based on the test blueprint, CAT部分被强调是因为CAT项目/分比PT项目/分多. 测试蓝图包括索赔要求, which are broad, 基于证据的陈述,学生知道什么,可以做什么,通过他们在评估子集的表现来证明. 索赔就像报告集群. The claims with more items contribute more to the overall score. For example, in mathematics, Concepts and Procedures have more items than the other claims, and therefore, contribute more to the overall score for mathematics.

Since scores are based on pattern scoring, 难度较大的项目组在最终分数上的贡献更大.

Reporting Scale

Reporting Scale在评估完学生的整体能力后,它被映射到报告量表上. 分数是垂直的. This enables the district to measure student growth over time across grade levels. For each grade level and content area, there is a separate scale score range.

量表分数为四位数字,每个等级和每个科目都有最低和最高分数.

Students will receive one of four score levels.

  • Exceeded the Standard
  • Met the Standard
  • Nearly Met the Standard
  • Has Not Met the Standard

在这两个最高水平上得分的学生将在高中毕业时踏上上大学和职业生涯的道路. 低于“达标”水平的学生需要进一步发展才能走上这条道路.

Achievement Levels

Achievement levels for claims are very similar to sub-scores. 他们提供关于学生的优点和缺点的补充信息. 由于每个索赔中有更少的项目,因此索赔只有三个成就级别. 学生必须完成索赔中的所有项目,以获得对他或其在索赔中的表现(或成就)的评估. The three levels, or claims, are Below, Near or Above.

The Claims for English Language Arts are:

  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Speaking & Listening
  • Research/Inquiry

数学的要求是:

  • Concepts & Procedures
  • Problem Solving
  • Communicating Reasoning
  • Modeling & Data Analysis

Test Scores: Just One Measure of Success

标准化评估只提供了一种衡量孩子学习成绩的方法. Classroom projects, writing assignments, math exercises, 我们自己的考试在全年都提供了重要的信息,建立一个清晰的图片,如何每个学生的进步. 我们鼓励您全年与您孩子的老师交谈,以了解更多关于您孩子的进步. Here are a few things to remember when assessing your child's score.
