TEST ITEM SPECIFICATIONS

  • Item Type(s): This benchmark will be assessed using: TM , EBSR , MS , MC , OR , SHT , DDHT item(s)
    N/A
  • Assessment Limits :
    Items may ask the student to cite significant textual evidence to support a given analysis of the text. Items may either provide the analysis/inference or ask the student to make an inference. Items may ask for support that is directly stated in the text or ask the student to find evidence to support an inference. Items should emphasize the importance of citing evidence that provides the strongest support possible.
  • Text Types :
    Items assessing this standard may be used with one or more grade-appropriate informational texts. Texts may vary in complexity.
  • Response Mechanisms :
    The Technology-Enhanced Item Descriptions section on pages 3 and 4 provides a list of Response Mechanisms that may be used to assess this standard (excluding the Editing Task Choice and Editing Task item types). The Sample Response Mechanisms may include, but are not limited to, the examples below.
  • Task Demand and Sample Response Mechanisms :

    Task Demand

    Use textual evidence to support an analysis of what the text says explicitly or an inference drawn from the text. The inference may be provided.

    Sample Response Mechanisms

    Selectable Hot Text

     

    • Requires the student to select sentences or phrases from the text that support an analysis or inference.
    • Requires the student to first draw an inference from the text and then select sentences or phrases from the text that support the inference or analysis. 

    Multiple Choice

    • Requires the student to select a correct answer using explicit or implicit information from the text as support. 

    Open Response

    • Requires the student to provide one or more pieces of support for a given analysis or inference. Because the support is implied, the student must paraphrase parts of the text in one or two sentences. 

    Multiselect

    • Requires the student to select multiple direct quotations or descriptions of textual evidence to support an explicit or implicit statement from the text. 

    EBSR

    • Requires the student to select an inference from the choices and then to select words or phrases from the text to support the inference.

    Task Demand

    Use textual evidence to support an analysis of what the text says explicitly or an inference drawn from the text. The inference may be provided.

    Sample Response Mechanisms

    Drag-and-Drop Hot Text

    • Requires the student to select a number of plausible interpretations of a passage and then select the corresponding supporting details or quotations from the passage. 

    Table Match

    • Requires the student to complete a table by matching plausible inferences and analyses to textual evidence.
