Standardized/ Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 7 1. New and Improved Assessments Over the past year, educators from across the country submitted feedback regarding how to improve the assessments. Based on these recommendations, the
201617 interim assessments will: Include more unique items across the ICA and IABs Include more IABs to measure a greater breadth of content Include some revised IABs to measure the content with more specificity The IAB blueprints for the 201617 mathematics and ELA are now available for download from the Student Testing Branch website. The blueprints provide information on Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 8 How have the ELA IABs changed? More targeted information: Edit/revise blocks have been separated to create three blocks for Grades 37 and high school. The revised blocks include: revision, editing, and language and vocabulary use. New Items: Each research block is now more robust with the addition of new items. In total, over 200 new items have been added to the interims.
The interim blocks available for 201617 are outlined below, with blocks that have been revised or added as noted: Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 9 How have the Mathematics IABs changed? More Blocks: Eleven new blocks have been added that measure the following domains: Number and Operations in Base Ten, Measurement and Data, Geometry, Operations and Algebraic Thinking, The Number System, Statistics and Probability, and Expressions and Equations. New Items: In total, 186 new items have been added to the interims. The interim blocks Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New
10 Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 11 2.Manner of Administration **** The Manner of Administration setting, new for the 2016-2017 administration, is used to indicate whether or not an administration of the interim assessments will be standardized. This setting is available for use when administering both ICAs and IABs. Note: The Manner of Administration setting is used to indicate the results to be and set the manner of administration, select the [View] icon ( ) to display the student To view Test Settings screen (Figure 27). maintained
in the IA Reporting System for potential local longitudinal analyses. Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 12 2.Manner of Administration cont. Two options are available for this setting: Nonstandardized and Standardized/Benchmark. The default setting is Nonstandardized. By choosing the Standardized/Benchmark administration selection, the test administrator is identifying which interim assessment results are appropriate to retain in the Interim Assessment Reporting System for potential longitudinal analyses locally. Standardized/Benchmark should be selected only if the interim assessment will be administered in a standardized manner. Results for any administrations designated Nonstandardized will be purged from the IA Reporting System at
the beginning of the following school year. Alert: LEAs may download all interim assessment results from the IA Reporting System at any time prior to the removal of these data. Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 13 2.Manner of Administration cont. The interim assessment for a student should be marked Standardized/Benchmark only if a valid interpretation of results can be made. The exact criteria for selecting the Standardized/Benchmark option for a student is locally determined. Factors that may impact appropriateness include, but are not necessarily limited to, the extent to which: The student has been previously exposed to the interim assessment items/form taken. The interim assessment was administered in a consistent manner across time.
Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments Whats New 14 2.Manner of Administration cont. Educators and others who make inferences based on test results should have received adequate training in administering the interim assessments and in interpreting results. A student with disabilities took the interim assessment in a manner consistent with the accessibility supports (e.g., accommodations) identified in their respective Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Section 504 plan, and in a manner consistent with how the student performs work for their classes. A student identified as an English learner took the interim
assessment with the necessary accessibility supports identified for use with statewide or classroom assessments. INTERIM ASSESSMENT PURPOSE AND TYPES Smarter Balanced Interim Assessments 16 Summative assessments benchmarked to college and career readiness (Grades 3-8 and 11) Standards set expectations on path to college and career readiness
Digital Library: Formative assessment tools and practices for teachers to improve instruction Teachers and schools have information and tools to improve teaching and learning All students graduate college and career ready
Interim assessments Flexible, open, used for actionable feedback Interim Assessment Purpose 17 The Interim Assessments are one component of the Smarter Balance assessment system and are designed to support teaching and student learning throughout the year. The items are developed under the same conditions, protocols, and review procedures as those used in the summative assessments. Not secure, but not public
Limited access to only those individuals within the District who have a professional interest in the use of the assessments Interim Assessment Purpose cont. 18 The content of the tests have been aligned to the Common Core State Standards in grades 38 and high school. The grade level to assess should be based on the purpose of the testing event. Each test can be administered to students in any grade (e.g., a grade 7
interim test is not limited to grade 7 Interim Assessment Types 19 Two types of interim assessments: 1. Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICAs) English language arts/literacy (ELA) test and performance task Mathematics test and performance task 2. Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs)
There are 5 and 17 IABs per grade 20 Smarter Balanced Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICA) Fixed form Use the same blueprints and assess the same standards as the summative assessments Include the same item types and formats, including performance tasks,
as the summative assessments Yield overall scale scores, overall achievement level designations, and claim score information 21 Smarter Balanced Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICA) Examples of the use of ICAs include: A new student from another state is given the previous years ICA.
Mid-year a teacher gives an ICA to gauge how students might perform on the summative 22 Smarter Balanced Interim Comprehensive Assessments (ICA) This document is intended to assist LEA CAASPP coordinators, site coordinators, and test administrators in planning for the administration and local hand scoring of the interim comprehensive assessments (ICA). The following table provides key information, including the total number of items appearing on each ICA. This total includes items that are both machine scored and hand scored. Also included on this table are the number of items that require local hand scoring on the non-Performance Task (PT) constructed response, the PT constructed response, and the PT essay. http://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/ca/icahandscoring.asp
23 Smarter Balanced Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) Fixed form Focus on fewer sets of skills (e.g., Geometry) Flexible; supports instruction and curriculum Include the same item types and
formats, including classroom activities and performance tasks, as the summative assessments Yield overall information for each block Smarter Balanced Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) 24 Examples of the use of IABs include: A teacher uses the argument performance task to determine the degree of a students
understanding before or after instruction. 25 Smarter Balanced Interim Assessment Blocks (IABs) The following tables are intended to assist LEAs in planning for the administration and local hand scoring of the Interim Assessment Blocks (IAB). Included in each table are the total number of items on each IAB. The total number of items shown includes both machine scored and hand scored items. Each table also provides the number of constructed response and essay items that require local hand scoring. The entire list of available IABs for grades 3-8 and 11 can be found at the following web link

Scoring Most interim assessment items are scored by the Smarter Balanced test delivery engine. Hand scoring of constructed-response items and performance tasks is a local responsibility. Results for individual students are generated only after the constructed-response item scores and performance task scores are inputted into the Interim Assessment Hand Scoring System (IAHSS). (Processing time of up to 48 hours)
Scoring is supported by training guides, rubrics, exemplars (i.e., anchor and practice papers). 49 Training Guides and Exemplars 50 Training Guides and Exemplars for all constructed response items and performance tasks are accessible in TOMS. Schools can access these secure materials for professional development and training purposes. Videos, Training Guides and Exemplars 51 52 INTERIM ASSESSMENT REPORTING SYSTEM
Interim Assessment Reporting System Results 53 Reports for lists of students and individual student reports. No aggregate reports. ICA: Overall scale score (i.e., 2000 to 3000); Achievement Level (Level 1, 2, 3, or 4); and Claim level (Below, At/Near, or Above Standard). IAB: Level of Below, At/Near, or Above Standard for each Block.
Exportable data file. Interpreting Interim Assessment Results 54 The extent to which interim assessments were administered under standardized conditions will affect the interpretations. Interim assessment results should only be used in combination with other evidence of student learning; they should not be the sole basis for making any high-stakes
