EOG PARENT SEMINAR BALLANTYNE ELEMENTARY MAY 1, 2014
WHAT ARE THE EOGS EOGs are end of grade tests that measure a students academic growth from beginning of year to the end Students take the following EOGs in grades 3-5 take the following: -3 rd, 4 th, and 5 th graders will take Math and Reading -5 th graders will also take Science
READ TO ACHIEVE Students in 3 rd grade must meet proficiency on at least ONE of the following to be promoted at the end of the school year: Beginning of Grade 3 ELA/Reading test 3 rd grade Reading Portfolio State BOE-approved LEA assessment Reading 3-D or MAP 3 rd grade ELA/Reading EOG 3 rd grade ELA/Reading EOG Retest Read to Achieve Test
WHAT DOES THE TEST LOOK LIKE? There are copies of the released EOGs (and answer keys) at the following site: releasedforms Scroll down the page for EOG Reading, Math Science & NC Extend 2 Testing Sample Bubble Sheets math math/gr35sampleanssheet.pdf
READING EOG *Selections will include fiction, recipes, poetry, instructions, informational texts, graphic organizers, charts, tables, and schedules *Apply test taking strategies on all preparation activities and when taking multiple choice tests
WHATS ON THE READING EOG? Grade 3Grade 4Grade 5 Reading for Literature (Fiction) 32-37%30-34%36-40% Reading for Information (Non-fiction) 41-45%45-49%37-41% Language (Grammar) 20-24%19-21%21-25%
READING STRATEGIES 1.Read directions, preview the story title & read EVERY word on the page! 2. READ the ENTIRE selection from beginning to end! 3.Summarize, question and predict in the margins. 4.READ each ? and all of the answer choices. 5.REFERENCE the text to find the answers. 6. Cross out answers that dont make sense. 7. Choose the best answer based on the text.
MATH EOG Calculator Active and Calculator In-Active Place Value Subtraction/Addition Multiplication/Division Geometry Measurement (metric and customary units of length, weight, capacity, temperature, elapsed time) Fractions Probability Multi-step Problem Solving Algebra (5 th grade especially!)

WHAT IS GRIDDED/OPEN RESPONSE? Practice: Grade 5 Open Response Questions Some questions are open response. They will require you to enter a numerical answer, rather than select an answer from several choices. Guidelines Write only one digit or symbol in each box. Spaces are permitted before or after your answer, but not within the answer. Darken the corresponding circle below each box. The computer scores based on the darkened circles. Do not use symbols such as commas or dollar signs. See Examples D and E. Use only symbols that are provided in the circles. If an answer is a mixed number, it must be changed and entered as an improper fraction or a decimal. Example C has the mixed number four and one-half, which is 9/2 as an improper fraction or 4.5 as a decimal.
SAMPLE GRIDDED/OPEN RESPONSE ABCDE 5/103/24 1/25,600$25.99 Examples Enter the numbers below into the grids.
CONTINUED… A5/10 can be also answered as 1/2, as 0.5 or as.5. (Equal numbers are fine.) B3/2 is an improper fraction. It may be entered as 3, then /, then 2. It may also be entered as 1.5. C4 1/2 can be answered as 9/2 or as 4.5. Spaces in a number are not permitted. Also, the entry 41/2 with no space would be interpreted as 41 divided by 2. D5,600 should be answered as (Commas are not permitted.) E$25.99 should be answered as (Dollar signs are not permitted.)
SCIENCE EOG Vocabulary – students need to be familiar with content area vocabulary 4 Key areas of Study Landforms Weather Ecosystems Force and Motion
