8 EOC Scores to Letter Grades
2012 February DAC Meetings EOC Scores to Letter Grades A psychometric study linking QualityCore® results (scale scores) of multiple-choice score to student class grades was developed. KDE is reviewing the scale score linkage based upon Kentucky scores. EOC Subject Test Course Letter Grade EOC Scale Score Link to CPE-College Readiness Benchmark A B C D F Algebra II 144 Biology 148 English II 150 U.S. History LINKING END-OF-COURSE STUDENT SCORES TO LETTER GRADES KDE has worked with HumRRO and local educators to provide a link between QualityCore End-of-Course (EOC) student scores and letter grades.  KDE is recommending a letter grade for EOC inclusion rather than a percentage because of the great variety of grading scales used in Kentucky districts and schools.  The EOC grading scale has been created using the statistical link between EOC scale scores and the ACT college readiness benchmarks adopted by Kentucky’s Council of Postsecondary Education.  EOC TESTING IN TRADITIONAL AND NON-TRADITIONAL SETTINGS KDE and ACT have responded for the need to support students earning credit in alternative pathways.  A new flexible process has been established for students completing courses in non-traditional settings.  Students completing courses with an EOC assessment may test at any time during the KDE established windows (i.e., December 1-January 15, February 1-March 15, etc.).  A brief training may be accessed at: KDE:OAA:DSR: 2/3/2012

19 2012 February DAC Meetings Who is Tested? All grade 11 students, except Alternate Assessment, foreign exchange and first year EL. Any student retained in grade 11 should complete the ACT assessment again. Any grade 12 student who has not had the opportunity to take the ACT, may take the assessment. Grade 12 students who enter Kentucky public schools as seniors that have transferred from another state or from private schools may take the ACT state administration. Submit listing of these students prior to testing to Guiding Philosophy-All students should have the opportunity to take every test. Reference that if a student is in grade 10 at the beginning of the year, they are expected to graduate at the end of the school year. They should have the opportunity to take the ACT. They would need to be listed on the roster as a grade 11 student when the ACT roster is pulled. A grade 12 student who missed as an 11th grader can be added to the roster and then complete the test. ***New for 2012*** Seniors new to Kentucky public schools may take the ACT state administration in March.  Students who enter Kentucky public schools as seniors that have transferred from another state or from private schools may take the ACT state administration.  Foreign exchange students are exempt from ACT testing. Please complete the spreadsheet from the 11/28/2011 DAC Monday if your high school(s) have seniors who will be testing and return to prior to testing.  KDE:OAA:DSR: 2/3/2012

Eligible_Career_Ready (New) Students on this list have earned the components to be identified as Career Ready, but have not met the benchmarks on the ACT in English, mathematics or reading.  NOT_Eligible Met the CPE benchmarks on the ACT No_Match No match to Infinite Campus (IC) information for either the Kentucky ACT administration or a national ACT administration. The COMPASS® Student Listing File was uploaded in October to the Secure Website (https://apps.kde.state.ky.us) in a Zip file format. Inside this Zip file are individual Excel spreadsheets for each high school in the district and a district spreadsheet (new) with all of the students in the district. The DAC may download and disseminate these files at any time. The data used to identify students is the state and ACT National Test data.  Note: The student pool was based upon State ACT rosters and seniors listed in Infinite Campus (IC). COMPASS® assessments are only available to grade 12 students through the KDE COMPASS® system. Eligible_Career_Ready (New Tab) – Students on this list have earned the components to be identified as Career Ready, but have not met the benchmarks on the ACT in English, mathematics or reading.  The students on this list are eligible for the COMPASS assessment.  School personnel and students should discuss the option of taking the COMPASS®. The complete district list file (new) provides one list of all students in the district with the same four tabs each school file contains. For districts with one high school, it contains the same names as the school file. For districts with multiple high schools, the district file contains names from each high school. To access the zip file, go to the Secure Website (https://apps.kde.state.ky.us) and choose Student Data Detail (Excel and PDF). Once there, look under the Other File Formats for the file with this naming convention: SD12_###(Your District Number)_Compass Student Listing_Dist Name.ZIP KDE:OAA:DSR: 2/3/2012

29 Accommodations (No Special Forms)
2012 February DAC Meetings COMPASS® Computer Adaptive Accommodations (No Special Forms) 2 Score Reports Interventions Seating Charts Computer Adaptive Testing sessions are untimed and begin with a question of medium complexity. If the student answers correctly, then a harder level question will appear. If the student answers incorrectly, an easier level question will display. This back and forth approach continues until the program determines the level of the student with 90% accuracy. Two score reports will print immediately-one for the student and one for the school. ACCOMMODATIONS: All accommodations will be according to IEP, 504 Plan or PSP. No Large Print, Braille or Special Forms All test and non-test portions may be completed with the use of projectors and readers. INTERVENTION: Prior to administration. Type of intervention determined by school. SEATING CHART: Required for all state assessments. Can use a sign-in sheet for one-to-one testing. KDE:OAA:DSR: 2/3/2012
