One of the requests that is frequently asked for is common grade level assessments. During the 2012 - 2013 school year, teachers will be asked to submit assessment questions for each unit. The structure of the assessment questions will follow the NECAP in that teacher will create multiple choice questions, short answer questions and extended response questions. Teachers who are proficient in question writing will be asked to help create constructed response questions for each unit. These questions will be compiled and reviewed by an assessment team to develop a common unit exam to be administered quarterly at each grade level. The goal is to have quarterly common assessments developed and piloted in the 2012 - 2013 school year and then a full roll out during the 2013 - 2014 school year. If the workload is more manageable then anticipated, then an attempt of a full roll out will be made for this year. Check back for updates.
