Race to the Top Assessment Program
In September 2010, the U.S. Department of Education
awarded $350 million of Race to the Top Funds as
grants to the two consortia:
• Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
• Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and
Careers (PARCC)
Task: To design and develop common K-12
Mathematics and English language assessment
systems aligned to common, college-and careerreadiness standards.

Caveats
• These assessment consortia are state-led
initiatives with many players
-Many decisions have not been made yet
-Some decisions are in flux
• The federal role is to provide support to the
states for the development of innovative
assessments
• There will be new assessments in 2014-15
-How innovative will the new assessments be?
Intention of SBAC Design
To strategically “balance” summative, interim,
and formative assessment through an integrated
system of standards, curriculum, assessment,
instruction, and teacher development, while
providing accurate year-to year indicators of
students’ progress toward college and career
readiness.

Current vs. CCSS
Current STAR Assessments
Proposed CCSS Assessments
• Grades 3-8 and 11, Grades 9 and 10
• Grades 2-11, writing at
available for states that choose to
th
and 7
use them
• Only paper & pencil option • Delivered via computer (Paper and
pencil option available for 3 years)
• Taken around 85% of the
and are computer adaptive
• Taken during the final 12 weeks of
instructional days
school
• Only multiple choice
• Performance tasks and
• Part of the state and federal comprehensive end-of -year
computer adaptive assessment
accountability system
which will some selected response
items
• Accountability system has not been
established yet
4th
Proposed Elements to the Common
Assessment
• Online testing
• College and career-readiness assessment aimed at 11th
grade
• Rapid reporting system to inform instruction
• Teachers involved in developing and scoring tests
• Item types
–
–
–

–
Short constructed response
Extended constructed response
Technology enhanced
Performance tasks
Selected response
Proposed Assessment System
Components
• Summative assessment (computer adaptive)
-supports accountability and measures growth
• Interim assessment (computer adaptive)
-Optional comprehensive and content cluster
assessment
-Learning progressions
-Available for administration throughout the year
• Formative process and tools
-Optional resources for improving instructional
learning
-Assessment literacy
The System
(Possible Scenario)
Proposed Timeline
• 2011 Development of formative tools, processes, and
practices underway; Specifications for summative
and interim assessments developed
• 2012 Summative and interim item development
completed ; Interim item pool become available for
use
• 2013 Field testing of items for adaptive summative
assessment completed
Preliminary achievement standards proposed and other
• 2014 policy definitions adopted
• 2015 Operational summative assessment administered; Final
achievement standards verified and adopted

Types of Tasks in Mathematics
Novice – short items
focused on skills and routines
Apprentice – medium
performance tasks with
scaffolding
Expert – long tasks with
high cognitive load and/or
complexity.
SBAC’s Specifications for Math
• Written by Hugh Burkhardt and Alan
Shoenfeld as commissioned by Linda Darling
Hammond for SBAC.
• 60% of the SBAC will be assessed using
performance assessment and scored using an
analytic point scoring rubric (fashion after
MARS rubrics)
• 40% will be machined scored.
