World History/Geography Assessment

PASST Assessment Development Project PD

P.A.S.S.T - Performance Assessment for Social Studies Thinking

This state-wide, project based, year long training (consisting of four sessions and some online work) will focus on equipping teachers of World History (Grades 6,7, & HS) with the knowledge and skills necessary to create and evaluate assessments that are similar to those being produced by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

The training will focus on understanding:

· depth of knowledge

· text complexity

· question writing that assesses skills AND content

· scoring Smarter Balanced-like items.

Participants will collaboratively create an extensive end-of-course assessment for their grade level (6, 7, or HS World History). Spatial and temporal thinking skills will be infused within the skills demanded of the C3 Framework and CCSS ELA literacy standards for history/social studies.
