INTENTIONALLY BLANK,Grade 4 Science Item Sampler iv. SCIENCE ITEM SAMPLER OVERVIEW, This document contains samples of scenarios and test items similar to those on the Wisconsin Forward. Science Exam Each sample test item has been through a rigorous review process by DRC Wisconsin. Educators and a third party to ensure alignment with the Wisconsin Academic Standards These items will. not be used on the state assessment and may therefore be used in Wisconsin for professional development. and student practice The items in this document illustrate a sample of the content and types of items that. students will encounter on the Forward Exam A Summary Data table in the Appendix section identifies the. alignment standard measured answer key depth of knowledge and annotations for each item. CONNECTION TO THE STANDARDS, Wisconsin Academic Standards for Science are available on the DPI webpage Test items require students to. prove their knowledge and abilities as stated in the standards. HOW DO I USE THIS BOOK,Professional Development, Sample items are useful as educators engage in conversations about what students are expected to know. and be able to do to demonstrate proficiency on the state assessments relative to the Wisconsin Academic. Standards Sample items can inform discussions about state and local standards curriculum instruction and. assessment,Improving Instruction, Teachers may use sample items in classroom activities that help students understand how to.
review key vocabulary,solve problems, determine which answer choices are correct which are incorrect and why. approach long and or multistep tasks,use good test taking strategies. Student Practice, Students may perform better and with less anxiety if they are familiar with the format of the test and with. the types of items they will be required to answer The Forward Exam is an online assessment students will. benefit from the use of the Online Tools Training in order to work within the system interface to answer items. as they will appear on the assessment as well as utilize the tools available to them in the online system. Note A student s score on the practice test cannot be converted to a scale score used to predict. performance on the Forward Exam or used to make inferences about the student s learning. Grade 4 Science Item Sampler 1,SCIENCE ITEM SAMPLER OVERVIEW. Test Preparation, While using the Item Sampler for test preparation care should be taken that this is done in a balanced manner.
and one that helps to enhance student knowledge of subject matter as well as test performance Please. note that test preparation is only useful to the extent that it is also teaching content area knowledge and. skills Therefore the use of this resource for test preparation is of limited value to students due to the narrow. opportunity for content learning It is very important to ensure that teachers are teaching to the curriculum. and not to the test as teaching to the test narrows the focus of instruction to only that content covered by the.

SCIENCE ITEM SAMPLER OVERVIEW,ITEM TYPES, The Wisconsin Forward Exam has multiple types of test items However because this item sampler is in a. format that can be printed the majority of its items are multiple choice In the Forward Exam there will be a. more diverse array of item types including the ones described below. Selected Response SR Items, Selected Response SR items are an efficient method for measuring a broad range of content and can. be used to assess a variety of skills Three types of SR items are used on the online assessments. Multiple Choice MC Enhanced Selected Response ESR and Evidence Based Selected Response. EBSR In all cases SR items require that a student determines the correct answer s to the item posed from. a provided list While it is still possible for a student to perform some work directly related to determining. the correct answer the student is not required to generate the content of the answer when responding to. a Selected Response item An exception to this requirement is Mathematics Short Response Gridded. Response items where students will be required to enter a short alphanumeric response. Multiple Choice MC Items, Multiple Choice MC items on Wisconsin s assessments have four answer choices including three distractors. and one correct answer Distractors for Mathematics represent common misconceptions incorrect logic. incorrect application of an algorithm computational errors etc Distractors for English Language Arts ELA. are written to represent a common misinterpretation predisposition unsound reasoning casual reading. etc A correct response to an MC item is worth one raw point The process skills directives and action. statements within an MC item also specifically align with the Wisconsin Academic Standards Multiple Choice. items are present in all grades and are used with all content areas. Multiple Choice items can be further defined by being linked to or independent from a stimulus source. Items that operate independent of a stimulus are also known as stand alone MC Stand alone items may. still have tables graphs or other information used in support of the stem English Language Arts uses a. mixture of MC items linked to a stimulus passage and some that are stand alone For Mathematics all MC. items are considered stand alone,Enhanced Selected Response ESR Items. The Enhanced Selected Response ESR items are multi part autoscored items that may consist of varying. combinations of Multiple Choice Multiple Response Gridded Response Completion or Short Answer and. Technology Enhanced items that explore in greater depth and cognitive complexity the knowledge skills and. abilities specified by the standards of each content area Typically this item type has a common focus and. explores authentic problem solving skills An example of a Statistics and Probability Mathematics ESR item. would utilize a data table stimulus with Part A using a Technology Enhanced TE graphing tool to create a. bar graph of the data presented and Part B asking students to calculate the mean of the data using a. Short Response item, Two Part Evidence Based Selected Response EBSR Items.
The Evidence Based Selected Response EBSR items have two parts and are designed to elicit a response. based on what a student has read from a stimulus passage EBSR items may be linked to a stimulus passage. or to a stimulus passage set There are several variations of two part EBSR items but all two part EBSR. items have an Accuracy piece and an Evidence piece. Grade 4 Science Item Sampler 4,SCIENCE ITEM SAMPLER OVERVIEW. The Accuracy piece of the item is Part A Part A of a typical EBSR item will be similar to a standard MC test. item A student analyzes a passage and chooses a single best correct answer from four answer choices. Part B of a typical EBSR item will elicit evidence from the stimulus passage and will require that the student. as they will appear on the assessment as well as utilize the tools available to them in the online system Note Grade 4 Science Item Sampler 4 SCIENCE ITEM SAMPLER OVERVIEW ITEM TYPES The Wisconsin Forward Exam has multiple types of test items However because this item sampler is in a format that can be printed the majority of its items are multiple choice In the Forward Exam there
