Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to:Part II presents information about the development of the English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics assessments. 2.1 Overview This Request for Proposals (RFP) is issued by the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) (herein referred to as the State) for the purpose of developing statewide summative and non-summative assessments in English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics for grades kindergarten through high school that are aligned to the Louisiana Student Standards. The tests will include performance components (e.g., writing in response to text and requiring students to provide textual evidence in support of their response, modeling and making mathematical arguments, etc.) and provide results comparable with a significant number of states, including using Louisianas 2016 grades 3 through 8 ELA and mathematics assessments as a baseline for results in grades 3 through 8. Through this contract, the high school EOC tests will transition from reporting student performance at four levels to five levels for Algebra I, Geometry, and English II, phase out the existing English III EOC test, and add an English I EOC test reporting student performance at five levels. The tests will hold high expectations for students and give parents and teachers information on the academic achievement of their students compared to their peers in other states while producing student achievement and growth data required to comply with state and federal laws and regulations. Specifically, this data will be used to provide valid information regarding school accountability and improvement; individual principal and teacher effectiveness for purposes of evaluation and identification of professional development and support needs; and individual student gains and performance. The comprehensive assessment system will include: Uniquely-Louisiana summative assessments in grades 3 through 8, English I, Algebra I, English II, and Geometry to be administered beginning in winter 2016 for high school and spring 2017 for grades 3 through 8 (through a separate contract) that include performance components (e.g., writing in response to text and requiring students to provide textual evidence in support of their response, modeling and making mathematical arguments, etc.); and Additional supports including: oformative assessment tasks for grades K through 2, which will be made available for all Louisiana ELA and mathematics educators to access and use at the discretion of each district; obeginning-of-year diagnostic assessments for grades 3 through 8, English I, Algebra I, English II, and Geometry for Louisiana educators to access and use at the discretion of each district; and o interim assessments aligned to diagnostic and summative assessments for grades 3 through 8, English I, Algebra I, English II, and Geometry for Louisiana educators to access and use at the discretion of each district
