14 Is there a gap between achievement on state assessments and NAEP?

15 Performance Measures TodayBeginning Advanced Proficient Below Proficient Advanced Proficient Approaching Proficient (Basic) Not Proficient

16 Workforce Readiness Benchmarks ACTs research has found that the skills required to be ready for college are the SAME SKILLS required to succeed and advance in the career and technical workforce. ReadinessBrief.pdf ReadinessBrief.pdf

21 How do we prepare our students for the new economy?

22 H S Graduation Requirements Changes that begin with the graduating class of 2013, next years 9 th graders, include: –transition from Gateway to EOC as percentage of yearly grade with measures of grade disparity –increasing the credit requirements to 22 –aligning the curriculum with ACHIEVEs standards –developing new assessments –developing one diploma for all students

29 Students with Disabilities Provide alternative performance based assessments of identified core academic skills contained within a course for students whose disability adversely effects performance on the end-of-course examination. Add additional points to the end-of-course score when the alternative performance based assessment is positive.

30 Students with Disabilities Require a math class each year achieving at least Algebra I and Geometry. Require three credits in science with Biology I and two additional lab science credits.

33 What Are We Learning? The ACT Benchmarks are important for ALL Students. Students who score more than 2 points below the Explore readiness benchmark scores rarely catch up and often do not graduate.

34 What Are We Learning? It is important that students catch up as soon as possible. Students who score more than two points below the Explore readiness benchmark score should receive extensive interventions.

35 What Are We Learning? Tennessee must more than double the rate at which students earn a postsecondary credential for our families to be sustained. Tennessee must develop a variety of seamless paths from the middle grades through high school to postsecondary completion.
