What’s new in alignment for next-generation CCR assessments?

July 14, 2015

How will alignment protocols change as a result of administering more complex college and career-ready assessments? Karin draws upon a decade of experience designing and conducting alignment studies for general education and alternate assessments to propose some new coding and analysis protocols for use with both large-scale assessment and locally-developed assessments. Text complexity analysis tools, content and performance complexity analyses for items and more in-depth performance tasks, and prioritization and test emphasis considerations will be explored. Schools that have established local assessment systems can use this opportunity to analyze and refine their assessments and assessment systems.
