What could be happening?• Are we measuring the same things? – Class grading categories: • Homework = 34% • Tests & Quizzes = 51% • Trimester Exam = 15%• Does our curriculum line up? – Rivendell Mathematics Sequence: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Pre-calculus, Calculus – NECAP Subcategories: Numbers & Operations; Geometry & Measurement; Functions & Algebra; Data, Statistics, & Probability
Mean Points Earned by Subcategory on 2011 NECAP
What could be happening?• Are students prepared to be successful on math tests? – Mean Percentages on Class Trimester Exams: • Algebra II = 65.78% • Integrated Algebra II = 68.00% • Geometry (1A) = 68.08% • Geometry (1B) = 68.46%• Is this where we should focus?
