This is an opportunity for everyone to chime in about what should-and should not-be a part of the 'next generation' of assessments in History Social Science in California, the yet-to-be developed assessments that will be added to the 'Smarter Balanced' assessments being given in Spring 2015, which include the three years of science testing required by federal legislation.
This is an opportunity not to be missed! But be quick: note the end date of April 17.
THE CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION (CDE)
CAASPP History-Social Science Stakeholder Survey
As stipulated in Education Code Section 60640 (c), the California Department of Education, in collaboration with Educational Testing Service, is gathering input from stakeholders regarding the possible inclusion of history–social science assessments as part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) system. The input from stakeholders will be shared with State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson as he prepares recommendations for the State Board of Education.
If you were unable to attend the stakeholders meetings in person, this is your chance to voice your ideas. This survey will be open for submissions through April 17, 2015. Please share this survey with others. Thank you for giving your input!
