MISIC’s SBAC Workshop Offered Again on January 26, 2017
Due to the overwhelming response to our workshops in November, we are offering the SBAC workshop again on January 26, 2017.
Preparing for the New State Assessment: SBAC
”For purposes of Iowa Code section 256.7, at least one of the districtwide assessments used to measure student progress in core academic indicators in reading and math shall be the assessment developed by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC).” (Iowa State Board of Education, Executive Summary, November 18, 2015). With that vote, Senate File 2323 and the Governors’ approval, SBAC becomes the new state test on July 1, 2017. Take action now to shift classroom practice to prepare for students for this new assessment. In this workshop, districts will explore multiple documents and strategies related to implementation of the SBAC:
- Understand the structure of the test and how data will be generated
- Identify accurate targets for instruction that are aligned to the SBAC
- Understand question item types on the SBAC and how to provide practice for students on new question types
- Align classroom practice with appropriate DOK (Depth of Knowledge) levels.
