2014-15 Social Studies Assessment Transition Plan  

At the Jan. 31 State Board of Education meeting, the board approved an assessment transition plan for social studies that states there will be no operational social studies assessment during the 2014-15 school year. There will be a field test in 2014-15, and we will resume with operational social studies testing during the 2015-16 school year. This assessment transition is necessary because of the change of course structure with the new standards. Suspending social studies testing next year will also allow districts to focus on the first operational implementation of PARCC.

More information about the field test will be released in the coming months, but as with other pilots, the results of the field test will not be reported to students and will not affect students' grades. Information on the design of the 2015-16 social studies TCAP operational assessment will be available this fall.

Here is a summary of the Social Studies Assessment Transition Plan:

1.        There will not be state social studies TCAP assessments during the 2014-15 school year.

2.        Social studies assessment results would not be a component of student grades for one year.

3.        Teachers will not receive individual TVAAS growth scores for social studies for 2014-15.

4.        Teachers should teach the new social studies standards (available here) adopted by the state board.
