Design and Development
We will develop and use research-based learning pathways as the basis for assessments aligned to selected fifth-grade mathematics standards. The test blueprint will inform item development for two assessment components of the PIE system: instructionally embedded assessments and an end-of-year assessment. Test items aligned to the learning pathways will be developed using Universal Design for Learning and evidence-centered design principles.
We will design the PIE online platform to support delivery of PIE assessments, teacher assessment literacy resources, and on-demand student progress and summary reports.
We will develop a PIE system theory of action and underlying propositions as a basis for validity evaluation.
