Conferring Cycle 3: Standardized Tests

Day 4: Understanding the rubric

Challenge: Look at the exemplar responses for your state’s writing prompt assessment. Notice the imperfect nature of many of the top scores. When students are assessed on their response to a writing prompt, perfection isn’t expected. Develop an understanding of the expectations for your students on a standardized test.

How will you increase your understanding of your state’s assessment practices for the writing prompt?

What will you do to protect your students’ confidence when they receive their scores from the state test?
