My first question would be: what was the maximum point they could have earned?
They actually included that and I didn’t. The maximum points available was 1.
I would be wondering what the question was (specifically how it was worded) and what instruction on that standard looked like.
"Interpret a multiplication equation as a comparison, e.g., interpret 35 = 5 × 7 as a statement that 35 is 5 times as many as 7 and 7 times as many as 5. Represent verbal statements of multiplicative comparisons as multiplication equations. "
Items 17 and 36 are separate questions that test the same standard?
Yes, what are the specific questions and why were the percentages different? Is it a matter of question clarity/quality, or related to the instruction related to the standard?
Since neither score is great, but significantly different, it may well be a matter of both question and instruction quality.
I’d be wondering: how many students got one right but not the other? How many got both, and how many got neither? Do we have access to the particular questions to see if there was a difference in wording between the two? Were there any challenging vocabulary words that may have inhibited student understanding? Have students been taught this content yet this year, and how did they perform on in class assessments for this standard?
I’m not sure what questions the interview team may be looking for, but since there’s not a ton of info there, there is a lot of flexibility in what to ask.
