Carla Evans and Scott Marion, from the Center for Assessment, will be facilitating a day-long workshop on December 14th from 9:00 to 4:00 to train IHE Network members in scoring and calibrating scoring on the NH TCAP. This will be held at Granite State College in Concord, NH.
If you are interested in attending, there is some pre-work for you! Here are Carla and Scott’s own words:
"The IHE Network will ensure that there are attendees at the Fall 2017 training from eight core NH TCAP content areas (elementary math and literacy; secondary science, math, social studies, history; special education; and art). It is ideal if multiple institutions are represented in each NH TCAP content area team with 4-5 educators per content area team. Each educator will bring 5 student work samples that represent the range of possible scores and that generally represent the distribution of student scores."
Therefore, if you are interested in attending, please sign up on this Google Sheet in one of the above content areas before November 30th. These are the content areas for which, in small groups, we’ll be identifying anchor papers and annotating the work samples. Please pass this email on to other teacher educators in your IHE that would be interested in taking part!
At our TCAP meeting on November 30th, we’ll finalize the list and start to coordinate, in content area groups, the work samples we’ll bring. Also, I will send a link to a Box folder where everyone can upload their TCAP work samples.
There is a column in the sign up sheet for questions and concerns, so feel free to share.
Thanks, and I look forward to this next month’s work!
