1 New York State Testing Program Common Core English Language Arts Test Performance Level Descriptions Grade 5 Revised November 2013

2 THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT / THE UNIVERSITY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK / ALBANY, NY New York State Testing Program Common Core English Language Arts Test Performance Level Descriptions GRADE 5 Policy-Level Performance Level Definitions For each grade, there are students performing along a proficiency continuum with regard to the skills and knowledge necessary to meet the demands of grade-specific Common Core Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy. There are students who are above proficiency, students who are proficient, students who are not quite proficient, and students who are well below proficient at each grade level. New York State assessments are designed to classify students into one of four proficiency categories; these proficiency categories are defined as: NYS Level 4 Students performing at this level excel in standards for their grade. They demonstrate knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy hat are considered more than sufficient for the expectations at this grade. NYS Level 3 Students performing at this level are proficient in standards for their grade. They demonstrate knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy that are considered sufficient for the expectations at this grade. NYS Level 2 Students performing at this level are below proficient in standards for their grade. They demonstrate knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy that are considered partial but insufficient for the expectations at this grade. NYS Level 1 Students performing at this level are well below proficient in standards for their grade. They demonstrate limited knowledge, skills, and practices embodied by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards for English Language Arts/Literacy that are considered insufficient for the expectations at this grade. 2

3 Performance Level Descriptions Performance Level Descriptions (PLDs) describe the range of knowledge and skills students should demonstrate at a given performance level. How were the PLDs developed? The New York State Education Department (NYSED) convened the state's English Language Arts (ELA) and Math Content Advisory Panels (CAPs) to develop the initial draft PLDs for grades 3-8. The CAPs are classroom teachers from elementary, middle and high school, school and district administrators, English Language Learner (ELL) and students with disabilities (SWD) specialists, and higher education faculty members from across the state. The draft PLDs from the CAPs then went through additional rounds of review and edit from a number of content experts and assessment experts under NYSED supervision. In developing PLDs, the CAPs considered policy-level definitions of the performance levels (see above) and the expectations for each grade level in the Common Core State Standards. Drafting PLDs began with Level 3, the proficiency level, to determine the content knowledge and skill necessary at a given grade level and content standard to be considered proficient according to the rigor and demand of the Common Core. CAP members then drafted PLDs at Levels 4 (excel) and 2 (partial but insufficient for proficiency). Finally, Level 1 PLDs describe a wide range of students, including both those who are just below meeting the requirements for Level 2 and those who attempted but did not answer any questions correctly. How are the PLDs used in Assessment? PLDs are essential in setting standards for the New York State Grades 3-8 assessments. Standard setting panelists use PLDs to determine the threshold expectations for students to demonstrate the knowledge and skills necessary to attain just barely a Level 2, Level 3, or Level 4 on the assessment. These discussions then influence the panelists in establishing the cut scores on the assessment. PLDs are also used to inform item development, as each test needs questions that distinguish performance all along the continuum. How can the PLDs be used in Instruction? PLDs help communicate to students, families, educators and the public the specific knowledge and skills expected of students to demonstrate proficiency and can serve a number of purposes in classroom instruction. They are the foundation of rich discussion around what students need to do to perform at higher levels and to explain the progression of learning within a subject and grade level. We encourage the use of the PLDs for a variety of purposes, such as differentiating instruction to maximize individual student outcomes, creating classroom assessments and rubrics to help in identifying target performance levels for individual or groups of students, and tracking student growth along the proficiency continuum as described by the PLDs. 3
