Deconstructing Standards

Published: 12/11/2015 5:40 PM

​Leaders in each of the networks will be working on the following goal, relative to their particular role:
Understand how to translate Kentucky’s Academic Standards into clear learning targets in order to design high quality formative and summative assessments and to plan/select rigorous and congruent learning experiences.
“Deconstructed,” that goal produces the following ‘targets’ for the network participants:

  • Know and explain: KAS, learning targets, formative assessment, summative assessment, learning experiences

  • Interpret each standard expected to be taught in terms of the expected depth and breadth. This means the interpretation of the meaning of the standard is consistent among educators.

  • Deconstruct standards into learning targets that students understand. This means writing them in language that is consistent with students’ developmental level so that students can use them to self-assess their competencies.

  • Produce aligned formative assessments, summative assessments and learning experiences for the targets developed from the standards. This means developing the ability to create, select, and implement congruent items and experiences
