Stone Fox - CCQ Novel Study Assessment Workbook

Meagan D.

“I love the idea and aspect of aligning it to the common core. I bought this thinking that there would be common core like questions on this assessment that entailed the students to do more writing rather than the multiple choice. Since it did say selected-response, I thought there would be more questions where students saw the events of the text mixed up and they had to put them in order or the characters names and they had to choose the matching trait and evidence.”

April 16, 2015

CommonCoreQuestions

Thanks for your feedback, Meagan. I think that you are referring to PARCC-type questions, more specifically TECR questions. We do not align to PARCC. All of our field-tested questions are proven to develop every Reading: Literature skill and a majority of the Reading: Foundational, Reading: Informational, and the Writing skills within the Common Core State Standards. We also designed our assessments to optimize instruction so teachers have the authentic student data needed to accurately guide future instruction. We wish you and your students all the best.

August 23, 2014

Hi Shantelle, thanks for your feedback. We design our resources so that teachers can complete the novel in about a month, on the basis of one reading period per day. We have found that the number of questions we provide - 5 selected response and 2 constructed response for each section of the book - is usually more than enough for our students to answer and review in that kind of timeframe. We hope that as you use the Packets with your own students you will see similar results. All the best for the new school year!

Thanks for your feedback, Jake. We hear what you are saying regarding the usual composition of a unit of work, and we are always conscious that fair pricing is a delicate balance - and one that we may not always get quite right!

To give you some background, our main goal is to prepare students for the new federal reading standards (the Common Core State Standards). These standards require a much keener focus on higher-order thinking and critical, close reading skills than was true of their predecessors. And as teachers ourselves, we found that while most units of work on the market provide excellent project-based activities, few comprise rigorous questions that fully align to the Common Core. That's the gap that our resource aims to fill, and we have seen the benefits for our own students.

We wish you and your students all the very best.

The Hundred Dresses - CCQ Novel Assessment Workbook

Elizabeth S.

“Too difficult for my third grade group!”

February 19, 2013

CommonCoreQuestions

Thanks for the feedback Elizabeth. We field-tested this CCQ Assessment Packet with 4th grade special education students who were reading at an upper 2nd grade/lower 3rd grade level. We experienced the same problem as you.

Our students and some parents felt that the CCQ Assessment was too difficult. We worked on scaffolding and modeling one or two questions a day for several weeks in guided reading groups to explain the higher level thinking that is required to answer these types of questions. As a result, our classified students’ reading scores improved tremendously. Our students began to realize that they needed to read more closely to answer these types of questions. We wish you and your students the best.

“Very formal, but great for expanding traditional questions for a text.”

January 25, 2013

CommonCoreQuestions

Thanks for your feedback - our number one goal is to give teachers a wide range of higher-order thinking questions to ask their students. Also, we aim for a degree of formality to help students realize that creativity in literary studies comes from well-crafted questions and responses, rather than from clipart.

We hope that you enjoy using our questions with your students!

“I appreciate that you're aligning common core to different reading books.”

November 15, 2012

CommonCoreQuestions

Thanks for your feedback. As teachers ourselves, we found that most Common Core-aligned resources were for short passages, rather than for the novels our students were reading. That's what led us to create aligned questions for the books we use in class. We hope you and your students enjoy using our questions too!
