When I was a kid growing up on a farm, we were always suspicious when a chicken set on eggs too long; that those eggs were probably rotten!This relates to data needed by the members of the Curriculum Standards Review Committee to enable them to properly do their job of revising curriculum standards as mandated by the Legislature.
"I requested the results of the Spring accountability testing to be shared with the committee. This is the official response which I have been given."
"As has been communicated in previous communications<http://www.louisianabelieves.com/resources/classroom-support-toolbox/district-support-toolbox/district-planning>, the department is not able to release PARCC results until late fall/early winter. At this time PARCC has not released any data to states for release. A series of PARCC states have released data but they are not PARCC results. Those states (Massachusetts and New York) required students to take both the PARCC test and their state assessments. The results they have released are their local state assessment results. All PARCC states will have access to results at the same time and will release at that time. For a reminder of all release dates and resources for last year's current results and this year's assessment resources please review previous LDE communications<http://www.louisianabelieves.com/resources/classroom-support-toolbox/district-support-toolbox/district-planning>."
Dr Sanford goes on to state the following:
"While it would have been very useful for each committee member to review this data, obviously this is not going to be available to the committee. Therefore, it will be important as we do this work to remember that the standards which are adopted by BESE, hopefully as a result of our work, will be the basis of future assessment measures. The standards should drive the development of assessment questions in the future."
