One was content; one was process.
Rachael Copelin
02:29:07
Pretty straightforward... not incredibly complex.

Lowest level DOK/Blooms

The second one was data analysis.
boscsa
02:29:22
content based and skill based
Sandy
02:29:31
Second question is a reading test with a graph
BurzynskiT
02:29:36
1st one was knowledge/recall and second one asked for more reasoning.
Sarah Adumat
02:29:38
Not much application
Sarah Adumat
02:33:18
I agree! So many educators are concerned with how to create 3D assessments
Sarah Adumat
02:33:59
CER seems like one way to make that shift to assessing 3D instruction
Christine Pratt
02:34:12
We are working toward a system of assessments in ELA and Math but haven’t gotten there for Science yet.
Rachael Copelin
02:34:35
Our network is creating 3D "interim" assessments for grades 3-8. They're a set of 3-4 assessments per grade level to be administered every 9 weeks. Items are 3-dimensional based on DCIs/SEPs/CCCs.
Kristin
02:34:36
Science isn't on the school report card so not a priority in our district.
Jack Hammer
02:35:11
Would common summative assessments become a part of an overall system of science assessments for a district?
Nick Mees
02:35:23
Technology such as PocketLab and various probes help to bring NGSS into the world of science education.
Christine Pratt
02:35:43
Yay for 3D interim assessments! We don’t currently have enough data to guide decision making in science.
Sarah Adumat
02:35:51
K-5 teachers appreciate how the standards for mathematical practice link with SEPs
Andrew Wellinghoff
02:37:34
We have asked our science educators in MPS to identify assessment tasks for (1) content knowledge, (2) data and analysis, and (3) application as they relate to our instructional units (themselves designed from bundled NGSS performance expectations)
Mrs. Dachel
02:46:08
Hi, Sorry I am may be a bit impatient;however, I am finding mixed information. Will 10th grade be testing this year?
Sarah Adumat
02:47:06
I’m wondering how ELLs might be supported?
Sandy
02:47:14
Supports and accommodations will allow for content to be read to IEP students, for example?
Sandy
02:47:50
Check ELL plans for allowable accommodations.
Kristin
02:47:57
I worry not just about students with IEP's but also those who are not reading at grade level.
Sarah Adumat
02:48:10
It seems as if it will be important for those folks to know about these changes
Sarah Adumat
02:48:19
:0)
CO-JRGRACYALNY
02:48:22
So wondering why the changes happening for this years Forward exam when the standards were released in November 2017 and with the state using the 3 year roll out process and assessments being in year 3???
Sara
02:49:06
I was wondering the same thing
Corinne Herreid
02:49:30
Has the Forward Exam creators thought of utilizing video clips to "level the playing field." For instance, show a video clip of the dime demonstration as another way to present the information?
CO-JRGRACYALNY
02:50:16
Resources though still aren’t available that are aligned to these standards...
Sarah Adumat
02:50:43
If people are not talking about engineering, such as criteria and constraints, they might at least want to introduce these as a starting point with students
Donnie Tate
02:50:56
What is the change from 2 sessions of the forward exam now this year to 3? Are students still doing multiple choice questions that you showed in the examples or are they going to have to type possible answers?
Amber
02:51:24
Will the reading for students that typically need reading support be provided by teachers or through the computer through the Forward administration?
kim
02:52:13
Are the answer choices given to students based on helping the teacher identify misconceptions?
mayertim
02:56:31
Thank you very much.
amy.vanalstine
02:56:44
Thanks!
dbudnik
02:56:45
Can you show the sample questions and where to find them?
Pamela Emmerich
02:57:00
I apologize, I was a bit late getting on..will you presentation be available?
kelms
02:57:06
Will the 4th grade test include anything from the 3-5 band?
kim
02:57:31
Are there any districts that you are aware of who are administering a district-wide assessment for science standards?
smithm
02:58:18
What resource do you recommend to assist districts in the design of similar local assessments to best prepare students to be prepared and successful for Forward?
Kristin
02:58:34
Are there district level assessments for science? We use MAP for Math and LA.
Sara
02:59:11
We use ACT Aspire classroom tests for middle school
Rachael Copelin
02:59:37
kelms ^ had a great question! I'm curious about it as well.
bpaulson
03:00:12
I think MAP has a Science assessment too. Our district uses it for Grades 7-12.
Sarah Adumat
03:00:37
Thank you for that clarification!
Rachael Copelin
03:00:42
Same for 8th grade? or does it cover all 6-8?
Rachael Copelin
03:00:46
MS, I suppose
helgesonr
03:00:59
What about 8th grade? 6-8 band or just 8th grade standards?
Kristin
03:01:05
The standards for MS are not grade level specific
Sarah Adumat
03:02:01
So the CCCs and SEPs are important!
smithm
03:02:17
Have you been involved in the planning for the upcoming CESA 6 Deep Dive into the NGSS & the Wisconsin Science Standards:DAY TWO: Focus on Assessment?
kelms
03:03:09
So the grade band suggestions are suggestions. Local control could put them anywhere within the 3-5 band, but since we are tested specifically no the Grade 4 suggestions, we should not exert local control.
