MA SPS 13-14 SAS Overview:
Purpose of the SAS:
The SAS does not:
•To identify what standards are
being assessed each cycle to aid in
the long-term planning process
•To supplement a pacing guide or
other curriculum materials
•To aid in the vertical planning
process
•To begin to help you think about
how to prioritize standards
•Tell you when to teach a standard
or clearly prioritize standards
•Act as a stand-alone planning
document (i.e. Unit Plans), or
provide full standard descriptions
•Unpack standards to a “teachable”
level (tell you how to teach the
standards)
2013- 2014 ELA SAS
Changes to 2013-14 SAS
1.
Removal of Anchor Standards
• Sample items released by PARCC and Student Achievement Partners
align to grade-specific standards
2.
Updated Lexile levels
• Lexile bands for all grades expanded slightly to cover a wider range,
which aligns to Student Achievement Partners guidance
3.
Addition of Writing Standards 1−3 for all grades (optional to administer)
4.
Addition of Integration of Knowledge and Ideas Standards
• Reading Standards 7−9
5.
Addition of multiple linked passages in A4
• Grades 3 & 4 will include 2 INF linked passages
• Grades 5-8 will include 2 or 3 INF linked passages
While ANet data will not be tied to these CCR standards
next year, it is still important to be grounded in these.
ANet data will be tied to grade-level specific standards,
like the ones illustrated in this vertical progression below.
Literature
RL.2.1 Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and
how to demonstrate understanding of key details in a text.
RL.3.1 Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text,
referring explicitly to the text as the basis for the answers.
RL.4.1 Refer to details and examples in a text when explaining what the text
says explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
RL.5.1 Quote accurately from a text when explaining what the text says
explicitly and when drawing inferences from the text.
RL.6.1 Cite textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly
as well as inferences drawn from the text.
RL.7.1 Cite several pieces of textual evidence to support analysis of what the
text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.
RL.8.1 Cite the textual evidence that most strongly supports an analysis of
what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text.

How we plan to assess
Standard 3 next year:
3.CCR.3
3.RL.3
3.RI.3
3.RL.3
3.RI.3
Rationale:
•The anchor standards are naturally embedded in the grade-specific standards,
which define what students should understand and be able to do by the end of
the year.
•This change will allow schools to more clearly see trends in data based on genre
of text, as well as the standards themselves.

Decontextualized Prompt
Contextualized Prompt
Think about someone who is important to
you. This could be a family member, a
friend, a teacher, or anyone else who is
significant in your life. Write a story about a
memory you have of hat person. Give

so that your reader can understand what
he/she is really like.

SAS Reflection
Guiding Questions:
•Which changes will be easiest/hardest for your teachers/students?
•What are the key messages you want your teachers to know about the
SAS and ELA assessments for next year and how they support the CCSS
transition?
