  • 1. Paths to Post Secondary Readiness Dash Weerasinghe Assessment and Accountability Plano ISD 4 th Annual Texas MAP User Conference - July 28, 2010
  • 2. Why College Readiness?
    • Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Current Population Surveys, March 1998, 1999, and 2000.
    Average Annual Earnings
  • 3. College Preparation Program
    • Students that undergo a rigorous college program are more likely to:
      • Stay in high school
      • Score higher on college readiness test
      • Enroll in college (by 12 percentage points)
      • Be prepared for credit-bearing college courses
      • Not need remedial courses in college
      • Achieve a first-year college grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher (by 9 percentage points)
      • Persist in college (by 7 percentage points)
      • Earn a college degree (by 8 percentage points)
    * The Role of Nonacademic Factors in College Readiness and Success, Issues in College Readiness, ACT 2007
  • 4. College Readiness Program EXPLORE PLAN ACT/SAT Successful transition into high school Explore personally relevant career options Information about students' perceived needs World-of Work Map, study skills checklist, coursework planner As a "pre-ACT" test, PLAN is a powerful predictor of success on the ACT Focuses attention on both career preparation and improving academic achievement Links students with relevant college and scholarship information ACT tests are curriculum based and directly related to what is taught in high school courses Can measure growth towards collage readiness SAT scores can be converted to ACT scale to measure growth
  • 5. Measuring PSR
    • Students who meet a Benchmark have approximately a 50 percent chance of earning a B or better and approximately a 75 percent chance of earning a C or better in
      • English Composition, College Algebra, and Biology
      • Typical first year college coursework
    * How Much Growth toward College Readiness Is Reasonable to Expect in High School?, ACT 2009 * ACT-SAT Concordance, ACT 2008 24 21 20 Science 470 – V 21 17 15 Reading 520 – Q 22 19 17 Math 471 – V 18 15 13 English SAT Equivalent ACT PLAN EXPLORE Test
  • 6. Using PSR Benchmarks
    • Evaluating students’ early progress toward college readiness
    • For timely interventions
    • For educational counseling
    • Career planning tool

  • 7. College Readiness to College GPA
    • EXPLORE, PLAN, or ACT score and College First-year GPA
    Mathematics
  • 8. Growth to PSR Average Growth in Achievement between 8th and 11th grade: Using the vertical scale from Explore, Plan, and ACT
  • 9.

    • What is the equivalent standard for 2250 in EXIT TAKS
    * Identifying Appropriate College-Readiness Standards For All Students, National Center for Education Accountability, May 2006. Unequal standards in grades 3-6; Need to set significantly higher expectation in elementary to meet the required standard in secondary… 2216 2298 Grade 8 2201 2228 Grade 9 2181 2221 Grade 10 2276 2320 Grade 6 2308 2269 Grade 5 2193 2263 Grade 7 2291 2282 Grade 4 2308 2330 Grade 3 Mathematics Reading
  • 12. PSR – Begins in Elementary! MAP EXPLORE PLAN, ACT, SAT, EOCs Grades 1 – 8 MAP RIT Growth in Reading and Math Progress to College Readiness in 8 th Grade Grade 8 Status Check High school Planning Career Analysis EOC College Readiness Measures Grade 10 Status Check – PLAN, SAT Grade 11 Readiness: SAT, ACT, EOCs
  • 13. Charting PSR Growth
    • Based on ACT recommended standards - College Readiness MAP RIT Scores
      • Mathematics: RIT Score of 244 by Grade 8 Spring
      • Reading: RIT Score of 226 by Grade 8 Spring
    • Find the typical growth path for students
      • District or school specific growth path
      • Growth path dependent of student demographics
        • LEP path or Non-LEP path
        • Economically disadvantaged
        • Ethnicity
        • Combination of above
  • 14. Charting PSR Growth
    • In Plano, using a regression model, we formularized the fall to spring growth for each grade level
    • This enabled individual growth paths for each student based in their starting MAP score from KN to grade 9
      • Reading
      • Mathematics
      • Science – Grade 3 to 9
    • Apply the growth trajectory formulae to identify students on track at grade 3 and above
  • 15. Grade 3 Fall to Grade 8 Spring Target: 244 in Grade 8 Spring Mathematics Path
  • 16. Grade 3 Fall to Grade 8 Spring Mathematics Path
  • 17. Accelerated Growth to PSR Target: 244 in Grade 8 Spring Mathematics Path Accelerated Growth path: 4 more RIT points required than typical growth
  • 18. Accelerated Growth to PSR Target: 244 in Grade 8 Spring Mathematics Path
  • 19. PSR – Intervention in 6 th Grade Accelerated Growth path: 11 more RIT points required than typical growth Target: 244 by Grade 8 Spring

  • 22. Presenting to Teachers
  • 23. PSR - Challenges
    • Key To Readiness: Motivating students early
      • at upper elementary grade levels
      • educating students and parents from non-college degree households on what college readiness mean
    • Setting College Readiness Standards too low
      • students not being ready for credit bearing courses
    • Setting High Standards
      • aspiring college students, currently not “On track” could be discouraged
  • 24. Why Post Secondary Readiness
    • The PayScale Report, 2010
