How do the Common Core English language arts standards differ from their predecessors? What do they emphasize? What are logical focus points for early implementation? The English and language arts standards depart radically from their predecessors with their insistence on text complexity and close reading skills.

This session, presented by David Liben from Student Achievement Partners, offered a look at various aspects of text complexity: how it is defined by the standards, as well as a range of measurement tools—including some newly developed and tested by the Race to the Text project—and how to use the tools for professional development. The focus on text complexity, close reading, and informational text has clear education implications as well. The presenter will examine some strategic focus areas for literacy instruction and explore ideas for bringing all constituencies to a fuller understanding of the Common Core standards and the features that make text complex.

Academic and Career Planning (ACP) is a process intended to provide academic and career planning services to students in grades 6-12 in public schools across the state. The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) contracted with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) to conduct a three-year evaluation of the pilot and roll-out of ACP. This report contains the findings from the 2015-16 pilot year evaluation and WEC’s recommendations based on those findings. The evaluation included three major components of data collection and analysis: telephone interviews with pilot team coordinators, surveys of all pilot team members, and mini-case studies of four pilot districts.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) contracted with the Wisconsin Evaluation Collaborative (WEC) at the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) to conduct a three-year evaluation of the pilot and roll-out of ACP. Key findings from the 2017 ACP evaluation report include: Administrator buy-in is key to program success. • Some teachers still resist ACP based on fears of increased workload and lack of expertise. • Some stakeholders are uncertain and suspicious about the future of ACP, compliance, and monitoring. • Students value ACP programming and want it to be rigorous, encompassing, and personalized. • Students often do not see the full reach of ACP outside of dedicated ACP time. • Family knowledge of ACP is generally low; families want to know what they can do to better support their children. • Districts experience difficulties in sharing knowledge about ACP with local and regional businesses. • Districts want to better understand and communicate about outcomes
