END-OF-COURSE OVERVIEW EOC assessments establish a common rigor for core courses. Current EOC assessments are for courses which are high school graduation requirements. ALG II, Biology, ENG II, U.S. History 2
CHANGES TO EOC - REPORTS Score reports may be created in one PDF for all students or one student report at a time. 3 To view ALL STUDENTS To view INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS
CHANGES TO EOC – CR 4 EOC constructed response (CR) items moved to local administration (instead of state) in February 2013. EOC testing was the first time Kentucky has tried to blend a state accountability model with a local school grading model. The results of the test must support both grading and accountability. The CR items did not provide feedback and instructional information. EOC CRs did not support local grading due to the amount of time required to score. JCPS issued a District approach to maintain use of the CRs in instruction and formative assessment. ·
5 CRs may be administered at a different time than the required multiple-choice sessions. Mid-term exam, final exam, proficiency exams The Kentucky Board of Education may decide in the future to develop regulatory language to require the inclusion of CRs. CHANGES TO EOC - CR
CHANGES TO EOC – CR 6 · KDE will be monitoring inclusion of CRs in its annual EOC survey.
CHANGES TO EOC WINDOW #6 - SUMMER SCHOOL 7 Computer based administration for ALL students ONLY exception is for accommodations Paper/Pencil ONLY R = Reader A = Audio B = Braille LP = Large Print Scribe Computer Based Extended Time Paraphrasing Manipulatives Prompting/Cueing Behavior Modification Interpreter (sign language) Dictionaries/Thesauri
CHANGES TO EOC WINDOW #6 - SUMMER SCHOOL 8 Digital Technology will be working with schools testing in EOC #6 to ensure all machines are ready for computer based testing. Digital Technology and the Testing Unit will provide support throughout the test window.
CHANGES TO EOC PRE-PRINTED MATERIALS Pre-printed books will now be used Answer documents will be perforated pages within the test book BE CAREFUL - If an answer document is torn while being removed from the test book, you will need to VOID it and bubble a blank answer document. (Voided materials MUST be listed on an Irregularity Report) Algebra reference sheets will be perforated pages within the test book Errors on pre-printed student information Do not edit Make corrections online within QualityCore roster No pre-printed book Add new students to the QualityCore roster Bubble demographics into a blank book 9
CHANGES TO EOC PRE-PRINTED MATERIALS Headers Pre-printed School Header Pre-printed Group Headers Headers will come with information pre-printed but NOT bubbled You DO NOT need to bubble the pre-printed information You WILL need to bubble in the: Test dates (BOTH) Quality Core bubble Answer Document count If you use a blank header: You WILL need to bubble ALL information 10 IMPORTANT Not on your handout
CHANGES TO EOC PRE-PRINTED MATERIALS If you move a student from one roster to another after the materials have been printed you will NOT be able to use the pre-printed materials. Materials are printed with roster information connected to the barcode. Moving a student and using the pre-printed materials WILL delay scoring. If you need to move a student to a different roster DO NOT use the pre-printed book, instead you will need to bubble the students demographics on a blank book. 11
CHANGES TO EOC PRE-PRINTED MATERIALS Unused pre-printed materials NO LONGER need to be voided NO LONGER need to be listed on an Irregularity Report Leave the answer document inside the pre-printed book Remove the student from the QualityCore roster Return the unused book with nonscorable materials in your content boxes BE SURE THAT SCORABLE ANSWER DOCUMENTS DO NOT ACCIDENTALLY GET MIXED IN WITH NONSCORABLES AS THIS WILL DELAY SCORING 12
EOC SCORES TO LETTER GRADES A psychometric study linking QualityCore® results (scale scores) of multiple- choice scores to student class grades was developed using Kentucky scores. JCPS used the same grading scale as last year. 14 STATE-REQUIRED END-OF-COURSE EXAMS JCPS EOC CLASSROOM LETTER GRADES FOR 2012-13 (Based on Multiple-Choice Sections ONLY) Subject ABCDF CPE-linked College Readiness Benchmark English II 175- 158 157- 150 149- 144 143- 136 135- below 154 Algebra II 175- 149 148- 144 143- 141 140- 136 135- below 148 Biology 175- 153 152- 148 147- 145 144- 136 135- below 154 U.S. History 175- 153 152- 148 147- 144 136- 143 135- below 147
EOC PROFICIENCY SCORES A performance level score (N, A, P or D) will be assigned for accountability purposes. The NAPD scale will not be connected to the letter grade. 15
TRADITIONAL VS. NON-TRADITIONAL SETTINGS 10 Day Traditional 10 consecutive testing days Each content area MUST be completed in 1 day. All materials shipped to ACT on same day. Flexible (Non-Traditional) May test at any time during the larger window. Each content area must be completed in 1 day per student. Materials shipped as students complete tests. Contact JCPS Testing Unit for additional shipping materials. 17
WHEN STUDENTS ARE TESTED Policy Change: Students are tested at the completion of ALL coursework. No longer calculate if 55% Example 1Example 2Example 3 Student passes semester 1 Student passes trimester 1 Student passes semester 2Student fails semester 2Student fails trimester 2 Student takes examStudent retakes semester 2 and passes Student passes trimester 3 Student takes examStudent retakes trimester 2 and passes Student takes exam

PREPARATION - USER ACCOUNTS Creation of new teacher accounts BACs can add teachers as needed Inactivation of teacher accounts BACs should inactivate staff no longer associated with their school to protect student confidentiality
QUALITYCORE ROSTERS BACs Responsible for creating QualityCore rosters : 3 Options for naming Name by school, course, per teacher and period i.e. Eastern, Algebra II, Greer, period 5 Name by school, course, per teacher i.e. EASTERN, Algebra II, Greer Name by school, course i.e. CCHS, Algebra II
QUALITYCORE ROSTERS BACs: Finalize Rosters Verify all students to be tested are on roster REMOVE (during test window) students who do not test No roster in SDRR at this time Very important for Data Review - Print or save electronic copy to use as a reference for accountability in SDRR at the end of school year
STUDENT TRANSFER FORM Use this form if a student is not visible on Quality Core. If the student has been in any KY high school we may be able to transfer them to your location in Quality Core. If they cannot be transferred we will contact you so that you can add them to Quality Core. If the student is new to KY schools you should add them to Quality Core.
