Changes in Student Assessment and School Accountability A-1
FCAT 2.0 in Reading and Mathematics Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS)Measures the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) End-of-Course Exams Algebra Baseline (2010-11) Geometry and Biology Field Test (2011-12) Computer Based Assessments Grade 10 Mathematics Graduation Test Algebra End-of-Course Baseline Exam Student Assessment 2
FCAT 2.0 Changes in Reading and Mathematics Content 3
Test Changes –Non-copyrighted text –Public domain materials –NGSSS is closely aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) –Requires more cognitive rigor FCAT 2.0 Reading 4 Requirements for Students –Have some prior knowledge –Make reasonable inferences –Synthesize information within and across texts
Test Changes –Eliminates short and extended response questions –Each item will measure one primary benchmark, as well as one secondary benchmark –Number of benchmarks per grade have been greatly reduced. Example, Grade 1: 78 to 14; Grade 8: 98 to 19 Requirements for Students –Questions require greater depth and less breadth –Grades 6-8: 20% of the questions asked will be comprised of high cognitive complexity items FCAT 2.0 Mathematics 5
FCAT and EOC Computer-Based Testing Spring 2011 Test Administration Windows 8
FCAT 2.0 in Reading and Mathematics NGSSS –Measures the NGSSS –Impact on proficiency and gains Computer Based Assessments –Grade 10 Mathematics Graduation Test –Algebra End-of-Course Baseline Exam School Accountability 9
11 Senate Bill 1908 Beginning in the 2009-10 school year, 50% of the schools grade will be based on the existing FCAT-related factors and the remaining 50% will be based on factors that include: A schools graduation rate; The performance and participation of students in AP, IB, Dual Enrollment, AICE, and industry-certification (as valid data becomes available); The postsecondary readiness of the students as measured by the SAT, ACT, or CPT; The high school graduation rate of at-risk students; The performance of a schools students on statewide standardized end-of-course assessments (when available); and Growth or decline in the data components from year to year.
12 Revises School Grading System to: Include End of Course results in calculating school grades for: Performance components in Reading and Mathematics Learning gains components for Reading and Mathematics Lowest 25% gains components in Reading and Mathematics Assessments will include EOCs required for high school graduation, including the following: Algebra (2010-11) Geometry, Biology and U.S. History (2011-12) Civics (2012-13) Senate Bill 4
FCAT 2.0 –Student Scores will be converted to the old FCAT scale for School Performance Grades –Equipercentile linking to old scale scores –Linked scores will be used for proficiency and gains High School Mathematics Gains –Only includes 10 th graders Writing Criteria –Writing Proficiency score raised to 4.0 School Accountability Changes for 2010-11 13
14 Beginning with 2011-12, the State Board will review the percentage of A and B school grades statewide to determine whether to adjust the school grading scale upward. Every time the percentage of A and B schools reaches 75% in a current year, the minimum required points for grades of A, B, C, and D would be increased. 2011-12 Proposed Changes to School Performance Grade Rule
15 As a result of the proposed automatic trigger the impact on elementary schools would have been: 4 A schools would drop to a B 6 B schools would drop to a C 3 C schools would drop to a D 1 school would drop to an F 2011-12 Proposed Changes to School Performance Grade Rule
