The Kansas Social Studies Standards identify five standards which describe critical understandings about the way the world works and include details on Effective HGSS Classroom Practices. They also highlight the historical thinking skills that develop when classroom educators effectively integrate these practices into their students’ learning.
The Kansas Social Studies Classroom-Based Assessment (CBA) is designed to measure these standards and benchmarks and it allows local districts, classroom teachers, and students to design their own product that demonstrates student understanding of the Standards and Benchmarks.
To prepare students for the state level Classroom-Based Assessment, teachers coach students to be proficient in the skills described in the rubric in each of the three categories which include a Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning.
