Description of Blueprint Elements The blueprint contains: Subject - Example: Science, IPC, Biology I, etc. Grade - Example: 1 st , 5 th , 10 th , etc. Unit - Example: 2 > Physical Science. The number of units in the blueprint varies for each grade level and course. Timeline - This is the target date to finish each unit. Some blueprints also include the number of instructional days for the unit. Essential TEKS - These are the TEKS that teachers agree are the most important for the student to know. All TEKS are not created equal. Some are more essential for students to know and understand because they build foundation or are tested. It is from the essential TEKS and the essential review TEKS that questions for our curriculum based assessments are derived. These assessments are called ‘checkpoints’. Underlined TEKS serve as the basis for the questions on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills. (TAKS) On-going TEKS - These are essential TEKS that are taught in every unit. Supporting TEKS - These TEKS may include those not tested but that must be taught in order to scaffold or support a tested TEKS; a supporting TEKS could also be an essential TEKS from another unit used to supplement the teaching of the essential TEKS in the current unit. Essential Review TEKS: These are TEKS from a previous grade level or blueprint unit that will be tested. Essential Vocabulary - These are science words that the teachers agree are important for the unit. Essential Questions- These are the broad questions that students should be able to answer when the unit is completed. If they can answer these questions, then they understand what was taught and know the concepts. Content/Concepts - These are the broad ideas that will be covered in the unit. Skills - These are skills listed in the TEKS for the unit. These skills should be observable as student behaviors. Assessments - A list of methods used to assess student understanding. Example: Teacher Observation, Quizzes, Projects 1
