  • Accomplishing task independently
  • demonstrating in a variety of assessments, with multiple opportunities, and showing consistency
  • Does expressing in one modality indicate proficiency?
  • Assess of content vs. assessment of skill
  • Need common language (academic vocabulary)
  • Kid friendly language
  • Degree of difficulty matters, standards are interpreted differently by different teachers.
  • Uniform rubrics
  • How do we communicate proficiency when putting the grades into teachers corner
  • Dealing with grade level spans, divvying up grade level spans.
  • Reliable (assessment receives same score across teachers) and valid (score actually measures what it is supposed to)
