  10. 10. Which Vertical Scales Will be Comparable, Which Won’t? <ul><li>TAKS and TAKS-A in English are comparable </li></ul><ul><li>TAKS and TAKS-A in Spanish are comparable </li></ul><ul><li>TELPAS will be a separate scale </li></ul><ul><li>None of the three categories above can be directly compared with any of the others </li></ul>
  11. 11. What Will Vertical Scales Look Like? <ul><li>The scale is from 0 to approximately 1,000 for 3 rd through 8 th grade </li></ul><ul><li>Scale scores for English language tests will be identified with an ‘E’ proceeding the number and Spanish with an ‘S’ </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: E-489, E-980, S-540 </li></ul>
  12. 12. What Changes Will Vertical Scales Bring? <ul><li>Starting next year, they will replace horizontal measures </li></ul><ul><li>Will include adjustments to “cut scores” (met standard and commended levels – see next slide) </li></ul>
  13. 13. What Will Be Reported This Year? <ul><li>Same basic reporting information as past years </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Old scale with 2100 as Met Standard and 2400 as Commended Performance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Same graph on Confidential Student Report </li></ul></ul><ul><li>New Information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reading and mathematics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>English grades 3-8; Spanish grades 3-6 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vertical scores reported near Lexile/Quantile scores </li></ul></ul>
  14. 15. Performance Standards on Vertical Scales <ul><li>Indicated cut scores will have more challenging standards starting in 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>English TAKS </li></ul>45 + 1 30 45 + 1 34 + 3 or 4 8th 44 28 45 34 7th 41 + 1 29 38 + 1 27 + 3 6th 40 + 1 30 39 29 5th 39 28 38 28 4th 37 27 34 24 3rd Commended Met Standard Commended Met Standard Number of questions needed Number of questions needed Mathematics Reading GRADE
  15. 16. Performance Standards on Vertical Scales <ul><li>Indicated cut scores will have more challenging standards starting in 2010 </li></ul><ul><li>Spanish TAKS </li></ul>40 + 2 29 + 4 36 + 2 25 + 3 6th 39 30 37 27 5th 37 + 1 27 + 3 36 25 4th 37 27 + 2 33 23 3rd Commended Met Standard Commended Met Standard Number of questions needed Number of questions needed Mathematics Reading GRADE
  16. 17. How Do I Work With Vertical Scales? An Example <ul><li>Student A is in 5 th grade and recently took the reading TAKS </li></ul><ul><li>She scored a 2212 scale score this year </li></ul><ul><li>Last year she scored a scale score of 2100. </li></ul>
  17. 18. How Do I Work With Vertical Scales? An Example - Continued 66 120 Growth 554 2008 Vertical Scale Score 620 674 2009 Vertical Scale Score 2100 2008 Scale Score 2100 2212 2009 Scale Score Expected Actual
  18. 19. What is the Texas Projection Measure (TPM)? <ul><li>An estimate of whether a student is likely to pass the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) tests at a future grade </li></ul><ul><li>TPM is based on (1) a student’s current performance on TAKS and (2) the TAKS scores from all students at the campus that a student attends. </li></ul>
  19. 20. TPM Predictors <ul><li>Uses three predictors for reading and mathematics projections </li></ul><ul><ul><li>students’ current year scale score in reading </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>students’ current year scale score in mathematics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>average campus scale score in projection subject (i.e., reading for reading and mathematics for mathematics) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>For science, social studies, and writing, add student scale score for that subject, for a total of four predictors </li></ul>
  20. 21. Spring 2009 TPM <ul><ul><li>For reading/ELA and math </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grades 3 and 4 to 5 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grades 5, 6, and 7 to 8 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grades 8, 9 and 10 to 11 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>On Confidential Student Report </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Indicator (yes/no) about whether student projected to meet the standard in the next high stakes grade </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Texas Projection Measure—Projected to Meet Standard at Grade XX: YES ” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For science </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade 5 to 8 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade 8 to 11 (2010) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade 10 to 11 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For social studies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grades 8 and 10 to 11 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For writing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Grade 4 to 7 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  21. 22. 2009 Impact on AYP* and TEA* <ul><li>Adequate Yearly Progress 2009 </li></ul><ul><li>Students who do not meet the standard in reading or math will be included in the numerator (# of students passing) if their TPM indicates that they are likely to pass at the targeted grade. </li></ul><ul><li>TEA Accountability 2009 (pending final approval by the Commissioner) </li></ul><ul><li>The TPM will be added to Required Improvement and exceptions to allow a school to improve on rating level above the rating level of the actual scores. </li></ul>*For SSI contents/grades, the TPM for the first two administrations will be included with the highest score for each individual student being selected.
  22. 23. How do the TPM and Vertical Scale Differ? <ul><li>Vertical scale allows an evaluation of past progress </li></ul><ul><li>TPM projects to future </li></ul><ul><li>TPM not limited to grades and subjects with a vertical scale </li></ul><ul><li>More comprehensive information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Current status </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Vertical scale score changes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Projection </li></ul></ul>
