MATHEMATICS
INTRODUCTION

General Introduction
The Department of Education provides districts and schools with tools to assist in delivering focused instructional programs aligned to the state assessment system. These tools include assessment anchor documents, assessment handbooks, and content-based item and scoring samplers. This 2008–2009 Mathematics Item and Scoring Sampler is a useful tool for Pennsylvania educators in the preparation of local instructional programs and the statewide PSSA.

What Is Included
The 2008–2009 Mathematics Item and Scoring Samplers do not contain newly released items. The samplers are a compilation of previously released items. This item and scoring sampler contains mathematics multiple-choice items and open-ended items that have been written to align to the 2008 Assessment Anchor Content Standards (Assessment Anchors). Some of the items are actual items used to assess student performance on the PSSA. They provide an idea of the types of items that will appear on the operational Spring 2009 PSSA. Each item has been through a rigorous review process to ensure alignment with the Assessment Anchors.

Purpose and Uses
The items in this sampler may be used as examples for creating assessment items at the classroom level, and they may also be copied and used as part of a local instructional program.* Classroom teachers may fi nd it benefi cial to have students respond to the open-ended items in this sampler. Educators can then use the sampler as a guide to score the responses either independently or together with colleagues within a school or district.

Item Format and Scoring Guidelines
The multiple-choice items have four answer choices. Each correct response to a multiple-choice item is worth one point. Each open-ended item is designed to take about ten minutes to complete. During an of fi cial testing administration, students are given additional time as necessary to complete the test items. Each open-ended item in mathematics is scored using an item-speci fi c scoring guideline based on a 0–4 point scale. In this sampler, every item-speci fi c scoring guideline is combined with examples of student responses representing each score point to form a practical itemspecifi c scoring guide. The sampler also includes the General Description of Mathematics Scoring Guidelines used to develop the item-specifi c guidelines and guides. These General Desc r iption Scoring Guidelines should be used if any additional item-specifi c scoring guidelines are created for use within local instructional programs. *

Item Alignment
All PSSA items are aligned to statements and speci fi cations included in the Assessment Anchor Content Standards documents. The mathematics content included in the PSSA mathematics multiple-choice items will align with the Assessment Anchors as de fi ned by the Eligible Content statements. The process skills, directives, and action statements will also speci fi cally align with the Assessment Anchors as de fi ned by Eligible Content statements. The mathematics content included in the PSSA mathematics open-ended items will align with content included in Eligible Content statements. The process skills, directives, and action statements included in the performance demands of the PSSA mathematics open-ended items will align with speci fi cations included in the Assessment Anchor statements, the Descriptor statements, and/or the Eligible Content statements. In other words, the verbs or action statements used in the open-ended questions or stems can come from the Eligible Content, Descriptor, or Anchor.
