NH Releases First Results from New Alternate Learning Progressions Assessment

submitted by NH Department of Education In June of 2010, state educators and administrators were formally notified of the significant changes to the state’s alternate assessment. After a three-year process of revising the alternate assessment the NH Department of Education administered the new NH Alternate Learning Progressions (NH-ALPs) assessment during the 2010-2011 school year. Administered to 1,400 students in grades 2-8, 10 and 11, the NH-ALPs is New Hampshire’s statewide assessment under No Child Left Behind (NCLB) based on alternate academic achievement standards for students with the most significant cognitive challenges. On September 21, the NH Department of Education released the results of the new NH-ALPs to the public. The NH Alternate Learning Progressions are based on a carefully restructured and accessible set of incremental learning progressions that come directly from the NH Curriculum Framework academic standards for all children in reading, writing, mathematics, and science. This assessment permits students to enter the learning progressions at personalized entry points. Although the test does not require conventional grade-level performance from this student population, it is structured to provide meaningful information that will support effective instruction for these students. For example, this assessment would allow a student who cannot speak or write in a conventional sense, to use blocks to show they actually know how to solve a mathematical equation.

NH-ALPs preserves the original academic rigor of the standards while opening up many options and alternate ways for students to show what they know and can do when they are ready to do so. The results of the NH-ALPs can help teachers and parents track, year-to- year, how students grow from having the most basic skills to a more complex understanding of how to use words, numbers, and science concepts to communicate their ideas and questions, and to make sense of the world around them.

Commissioner Barry said, “For all students, learning is not a question of “if,” it is a question of how.” She went on to say, “The key is to find ways each student can make sense of academic ideas and find his or her own way of communicating reading, writing, mathematical and scientific concepts. This new alternative assessment does that.” The NH-ALPs is designed to use video evidence collection to document student performance on academic standards in reading, math, and science. The writing assessment relies on student work products to document authentic writing performance. The purpose of using the video for the reading, math and science content areas is to clearly and fairly show how each student in this assessment is able to make sense of academic content and to communicate his or her Your Hometown Internet Address

understanding. The use of video gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their academic abilities given their unique methods of communicating content. The new technique of visually recording students to show academic performance as it occurs provides a much more fair and realistic picture of what they really understand and frees these students from having to use the conventional paper and pencil format. The individual student report of the NH-ALPs will show where each student’s performance is located within the Alternate Learning Progressions for each tested content area as well as the level of proficiency this location represents, given the student’s grade at the time of testing. This location within the Learning Progression is called the “Challenge Level.” As children progress along the educational continuum, the Challenge Level becomes more complex and difficult. Growth tracking charts may be created by each student’s teacher to show where and how each student is progressing. As with all new

assessments, a baseline of test scores is

determined in the first year to compare against in future years. The NH-ALPs has set a new baseline this year for the NH alternate assessment process which cannot be compared to any previous year of the NH Alternate Assessment System. Comparisons in future years can and will be made against this first year of results for the NH-ALPs. The proficiency levels reported are expected to be noticeably lower than usual in this first year due, in part, to the new and unfamiliar format of the assessment, the development of new achievement level descriptors, and the increased rigor and academic coverage of the test. In spite of these factors, NH teachers established a very strong basis for moving forward to

improve instruction and their input helped further understanding about this diverse population of students. Gaye Fedorchak, State Alternate Assessment Director, said, “This year, our teachers rose to the challenge, showing extraordinary professionalism as they stepped up and dealt with the tremendous demands and change required of them. Yet, despite the demands we had to make, teachers reported that being able to step back and watch themselves with the student as he or she was actually trying to make sense of a book, or to solve a math problem helped them recognize needs for specific interventions they developed as a direct result of seeing the student’s interactive responses on video. We all have so much to learn about this population. We are just beginning to discover how much these kids can grow.”
