The Role of Teachers and Technology in Assessing

The Role of Teachers and Technology in Assessing the CCSS Speaking and Listening Standards NCSA, June 2014, New Orleans, LA Marty McCall, Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium Note on range and content of student speaking and listening To build a foundation for college and career readiness, students must have ample opportunities to take part in a variety of rich, structured conversations as part of a whole class, in small groups, and with a partner.

--CCSS Anchor Standards for Speaking and Listening Comprehension and Collaboration: Prepare for and participate effectively in a range of conversations and collaborations with diverse partners, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly and persuasively. Integrate and evaluate information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally. Evaluate a speaker's point of view, reasoning, and use of evidence and rhetoric.

Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas: Present information, findings, and supporting evidence such that listeners can follow the line of reasoning and the organization, development, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience. Make strategic use of digital media and visual displays of data to express information and enhance understanding of presentations. Adapt speech to a variety of contexts and communicative tasks, demonstrating command

of formal English when indicated or appropriate. Formal Informal Conversation Many to many Structured Collaboration Discussion Many to one
