Computer Adaptive Test The M-STEP Spring 2015 Preview must be used in Google Chrome. The first 9 questions preview math sample questions. Copy and paste this link https://wbte.drcedirect.com/MI/portals/mi/ott1 Spotlight 2/12/2015: This new resource differs from the Spring 2015 Preview by providing more sample test items specific to grade and content.
Online Assessment A wareness A new resource meant to help raise educator and student awareness of M-STEP has been created through TRIG funding and the Greater Michigan Educational Consortium (GMEC). This resource is a self-paced course for students and educators. Created by a group of educators, the vision for this project is that students will demonstrate the ability to successfully navigate technology enhanced online assessments
and teachers/administrators will value the importance of professional development in how to incorporate http://aware.22itrig.org/ online learning/assessments in their instruction so that students are prepared to take high stake online assessments. Classroom Activity Performance Task 30 minute scripted lesson presented to
the students. The lesson is delivered by a classroom teacher. It may occur the same day as the Performance Task (PT) or up to 3 days prior. The purpose of the activity is to expose students to the context and vocabulary of the PT.
A multi-item task administered online. Students are presented with several stimuli, and will respond to Technology Enhanced (TE) items, short Constructed Response (CR), and extended CR items. Administering the PT without the Classroom is considered a classroom irregularity. Make it Work for YOU!
Lets take a look at an edited version of the sample Classroom Activity and a Performance Task for each grade level. Samples of Classroom Activities and Performance Tasks One sample online Mathematics CA and PT for each grade level has been posted online, complete with scoring guides embedded in the PTs. The posted sample

Claim 1 Students can explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency. *Cluster headings as assessment targets: In the CCSSM the cluster headings usually serve to communicate the larger intent of a group of
standards. Grade Level Number of *Assessment Targets 3 11
4 5 6 12 11 10 7
8 11 9 10 16 What is a Target? A Target is a cluster statement.
As you look at the Michigan K-12 Standards for Mathematics for your grade level or subject, they are the bolded statements that appear as a heading Example - Grade 3 Operations and Algebraic Thinking Target A Represent and solve problems involving
multiplication and division. 3.OA.1, 3.OA.2 3.OA.3, 3.OA.4 Target B Understand properties of multiplication and the relationship between multiplication and division 3.OA.5, 3.OA.6
What is an ALD? ALDs Achievement Level Descriptors Policy ALDs are general descriptors that articulate the goals and rigor for the final performance standards supporting the overall claim. Content ALDs in general, at what level (rigor) is the student understanding or interpreting the content based on the Claim. What is an ALD?
ALDs Achievement Level Descriptors Range ALDs are grade-and-content specific ALDs that may be used by test developers to write items that align to the cognitive and content rigor that has been defined within a particular achievement level. Threshold ALDs defines the minimum performance required for meeting a particular achievement level expectations. Claim 2 Students can solve a range of complex wellposed problems in pure and applied
mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies. *Ac t Interpret e z a
