History and Science Interim Assessments

BACKGROUND: In 2014-2015, RUSD History and Science teachers engaged in a year-long process to develop site-based performance tasks to replace existing, multiple-choice quarterly benchmarks. You can read an overview of that process, including rationale, here (HISTORY) and here (SCIENCE).

RUSD ELD Portfolio

ELD Portfolio Update to Site Principals March 2014.pdf

In 2012-2013, a team of RUSD teachers and administrators began developing a new tool to progress monitor language development for English learners. The process included reviewing the new ELD standards, developing writing and speaking rubrics, and identifying a portfolio template. The rubrics are posted below. You can see detailed background on the work here and here. Starting 2014-2015 the ELD portfolio was fully implemented in ELD 1-3 classes districtwide in grades 7-12, while a small group of elementary teachers continued to implement at the K-6 levels. During the 2016-2017 school year, we will work with targeted elementary sites to implement the tool, including the inclusion of an electronic portfolio feature to capture and display student work samples.
