  24. 31. World Geography G.7A Supporting Standard G.21A Process Standard
  25. 34. <ul><li>Students will have to get more items correct than on TAKS. </li></ul><ul><li>The passing standard will first be established for English III and Algebra II </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Linked to college readiness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Linked by grade level down to 3 rd grade </li></ul></ul>
  26. 35. <ul><li>Time limits </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All STAAR assessments Grade 3 through EOC will have a four hour time limit </li></ul></ul>
  27. 36. <ul><li>Accommodations will be allowed on STAAR, but have not yet been defined or clarified. </li></ul><ul><li>STAAR Modified will be available for students who meet the criteria. </li></ul><ul><li>STAAR Alternate will be available for students who have significant cognitive disabilities. </li></ul>
  28. 38. <ul><li>STAAR </li></ul><ul><li>15 Exams </li></ul><ul><ul><li>2 stand alone – English III and Algebra II </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cumulative Score in Each Subject (15 exams in 12 contents) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Minimum floors on every exam </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In subjects never tested before (Alg II, Physics, WG, Bio.) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Higher rigor, higher standards </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Longer tests, 4 hour time limit </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Distinguished graduates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Advanced performance on Alg II & English III </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>26 credits tied to 15% </li></ul>
  29. 39. <ul><li>STAAR Step 1: Obtain a cumulative passing score or higher (All graduation plans) </li></ul><ul><li>High school students will earn four cumulative scores -- math, science, English and social studies -- based on their performance on each individual EOC exam. </li></ul><ul><li>A student’s cumulative score is determined using the student’s highest score on each EOC assessment. </li></ul><ul><li>To graduate, a student must achieve a cumulative score in each content area equal or greater than the TEA passing standard multiplied by the number of assessments taken. (cumulative score ≥ passing scale score x number of assessments taken) </li></ul>
  30. 40. <ul><li>If the passing standard on each of the three science EOC assessments happens to be set at 1000, then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the student’s cumulative score ≥ 1000 x 3 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the student’s cumulative score ≥ 3000 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>For a single EOC score to count toward the student’s cumulative score, a minimum score must be achieved. However, achieving only the minimum score on the EOC assessments will not meet the cumulative passing standard. </li></ul>
  31. 41. <ul><li>Individual Exam: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Possible = 1000 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Passing ≥ 700 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Minimum ≥ 600 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Level III – Advanced ≥ 850 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cumulative for Math ≥ 2100 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Algebra I </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Algebra II </li></ul></ul>

  35. 45. <ul><li>Student 4 – Wants to be a Distinguished Graduate: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Algebra - 885 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Geometry – 870 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Algebra II – 835 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cumulative Total = 2590 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>GRADUATION! Recommended Plan </li></ul></ul>
  36. 46. <ul><li>Texas Education Code 30.023(c) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A school district…shall adopt a policy that requires a student’s performance on an end-of-course assessment instrument in which the student is enrolled to account for 15 percent of the student’s final grade for the course. </li></ul></ul>
  37. 47. <ul><li>EIA – When required by state law, a student’s score on the initial end-of-course assessment shall count for 15 percent of the student’s final grade as reported on the student’s transcript </li></ul>
  38. 48. <ul><li>A student may retake an EOC at any time according to the state testing schedule. </li></ul><ul><li>Students will retake an EOC exam until a minimum score is obtained. </li></ul><ul><li>Retakes of the EOC will only be applied to the final grade for the first attempt (July) if they allow the student to gain credit for the course. </li></ul>
  39. 49. <ul><li>Current policy calculates GPA using semester averages and not from the final average that will include EOC scores. </li></ul><ul><li>The EOC committee has recommended to maintain this process for GPA calculation. </li></ul><ul><li>Example: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>(Fall Semester + Spring Semester) @85% </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>+ EOC @ 15% = Final Grade </li></ul></ul>
  40. 50. <ul><li>Uncertainty of new/unknown exam (evidenced by TEA’s phase-in standards) </li></ul><ul><li>Impact of future legislative action </li></ul><ul><li>Impact of students transferring from other districts with different conversion scales </li></ul><ul><li>No statewide conversion model – impact of others on college admissions </li></ul><ul><li>Impact of the cohort phase-in model (GPA’s based on exams with different performance standards) </li></ul><ul><li>Would necessitate inclusion of high school coursework taken at MS be included in the GPA </li></ul>
  41. 51. <ul><li>Last years 8 th graders who took the Algebra I EOC: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students would not be required to take that EOC assessment – their cumulative score would decrease. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students could choose to take that EOC assessment in Spring 2012 or beyond. If they take the assessment, the score would only be used in their cumulative if it benefited the student. </li></ul></ul>
  42. 52. <ul><li>Current 8 th grade students </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Will take STAAR EOC required courses (Alg I) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Will take STAAR enrolled grade test (STAAR grade 8 math) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Their EOC will count for their cumulative math average for graduation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Their EOC will count as 15% of their final grade and credit will not be granted unless the final average including EOC is 70% or higher </li></ul></ul>
