Transitions in Mathematics MCAS 2013
Offered in conjunction with the ESE Commissioner’s District Math Network

In 2013, the MCAS mathematics tests will be assessing the new 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Mathematics. There are many changes and challenges ahead. The transition plans and assessable standards lists are posted on the ESE assessment website, but you might like further information to understand how the MCAS tests are changing for grades 3-8 and how the Grade 10 test is essentially remaining unchanged.

Topics in this DSAC webinar include:
Challenges inherent in transitioning the Grade 10 MCAS mathematics test
Differences in the transition plan for the MCAS mathematics tests in grades 3-8
Details on how the “assessable standards” lists were determined
Understanding what “assessable” means
