|Smarter Balanced Alignment Study - Educator Recruitment|
Smarter Balanced is developing an assessment system for ELA/literacy and mathematics that is aligned to the CCSS. Smarter Balanced developed content specifications with claims and assessment targets for ELA/literacy and mathematics at each grade level directly derived from the CCSS. During fall 2013, the Smarter Balanced consortia developed approximately 20,000 ELA/literacy and mathematics items and performance tasks based on the Smarter Balanced claims and assessment targets for grades 3-8 and high school. A computer-adapted test (CAT) will be developed from the item and performance task pools, and from test blueprints.
HumRRO is recruiting educators to participate in one 2-day workshop to evaluate similarities and differences in content and cognitive demand among the Smarter Balanced's content specifications, task models, and items and performance tasks. The workshops will be held on-site, with the potential for take-home work to be completed within 21 calendar days after the workshop. Table 1 outlines the date and location of each alignment study workshop. Each reviewer will attend only one workshop.
HumRRO seeks educators who meet the qualifications outlined below to serve as alignment reviewers beginning in March 2014:
