III Design of LEAP Social Studies Assessment,Content and Claims. The new LEAP Social Studies assessments provide students with opportunities to demonstrate their understanding of social studies through. a variety of item types and to engage with source documents while developing claims about social studies content and concepts. The instructional priorities for social studies are reflected in the summative assessment. Content Students answer meaningful questions to demonstrate an understanding of social studies content and concepts. Claims Students apply understanding of social studies content and concepts by expressing and developing claims that make. connections and or show relationships among ideas people and events within and across time and place. Test Design, The LEAP Social Studies assessments have a set based design. One to four related source documents anchor sets of four to six questions. Questions ask students to use prior content knowledge and the source documents to show an understanding of social studies content. and concepts, Item sets include selected response i e multiple choice and or multiple select questions and some sets culminate with a short. constructed response or technology enhanced question. The task set contains selected response questions and an extended response The extended response item is worth up to 8 points and. scored using a two dimensional rubric measuring content and claims. Sample item and task sets for grades 3 through 8 are available here A sample item set for grade 8 can be found here and a sample task. set for grade 8 can be found here,Source Documents.
