Unpacking Standards. Step 1: Analyze your school students’ achievement data and find an area of concern. Select a State or Common Core standard that is currently implemented in your school or will be implemented soon and is related to that area of concern. Identify the content knowledge (what students will learn) and skills (what students will be able to do) that are part of the desire results of this Standard. Identify the conclusions or understandings to which students should arrive as a result of mastering this standard. List the patterns of reasoning that students need to master and the types of dispositions that the standard promotes, if any. Step 2: Create at least 5 assessments that: assess all skills, knowledge, understandings, and types of reasoning, give opportunity to demonstrate learning to a diverse student population, include all assessment methods discussed in class and explained in the book (Stiggins), promote metacognition, and integrate technology. For the performance assessment, use a GRASPS prompt and create a rubric. Examples of performance assessments with GRASPS prompts are attached here: grasps-and-roles examples(1).pdf Step 3: Describe the assessment for learning strategies you would use to assess your students’ dispositions related to this standard. (See chapter 9 by Stiggins and Chappuis, 2012). Finally, analyze the benefits for students in standards-based instruction and aligning classroom assessments to standards.
