Writing Portfolios


Language Arts teachers should, at the end each nine weeks, plan a writer’s workshop. This workshop should be the culmination of writing instruction  that has taken place throughout the grading period, designed to address students’ instructional needs. The duration of this workshop usually spans at least one week, depending on student progress. Assignments for the writer’s workshop may include end-of-collection performance tasks, tasks from the Performance Assessment books, or research projects. Teachers should use the state rubrics to score student writing and provide timely feedback to students.

Student writing should be kept in portfolios for revision, conferencing, and to show growth. Teachers will no longer be required to enter scores into Focus; however, they should keep track of their students’ growth throughout the school year.


Test Blueprints for English 3, English 3 Honors, and English 4 Honors Final Exams

Test Blueprint Pic.jpgTwo years ago, when the district was alerted that we were required to make EOCs for courses that do not have state assessments, teacher committees were put together to create test blueprints for English 3, English 3 Honors, and English 4 Honors. To download an Excel file these blueprints, click here.


These blueprints were created by scanning the standards trace provided to us by HMH and determining which standards were taught and assessed the most throughout the entire school year. These standards - called our "power standards" - were chosen to be assessed. They are highlighted in bold text on the blueprints.


Once the standards were chosen, we had to determine how many questions should be on the test, and what should be the ratio of low, moderate, and high (L, M, H) complexity.


This blueprint will serve as a guide for you to create a final exam for your class. It is a design for a standards-based test, so there is no specific content mentioned. That is up to the discretion of the creators of the assessment.


If there are any questions regarding the use of these blueprints, feel free to contact Brian Spivey at bspivey@escambia.k12.fl.us
