The initial step in the process is for teachers to create a long term instructional plan for the school year, considering when standards will be introduced, pre-assessed, and monitored. Teachers should use the scoring guide for each domain to develop task-specific expectations.
Teachers will collect Point A work at the most appropriate time within the instructional plan. They should sort Point A work into differentiated groups of students (emerging, proficient, advanced) based on the scoring guide and task-specific expectations and select three student samples. They will also have to download and complete a Context Form for each student and then upload and score the work.
Using the results, teachers should then differentiate their instruction based on specific needs and strengths that were identified within the Point A student work artifacts.
Teachers will then Collect Point B work at the most appropriate time within the instructional plan and score it. Teachers should select the same students’ work samples for each differentiated group as the Point A. They will also download and complete the Context Form for each student and then upload and score the work.
Once the Point A and Point B are scored for all three students, teachers will submit each assessment for peer review. Teachers must submit both the Point A and Point B assessments by April 15, 2018.
