Estimating the 2%
What is the CRCT-M? The CRCT-M is a grade-level alternate assessment designed for eligible students with IEPs. – Grades 3 – 8 Reading English/Language Arts Mathematics – Students must take the CRCT for any subject in which the student does not take the CRCT-M. – All students must take the Science and Social Studies CRCT.
Estimating the 2% The 2% cap pertains to the number/percent of proficient students who can be included in accountability calculations per Federal Regulations. – Calculation is made at the district level and not at the school level. – Districts need to be strategic and thoughtful as they coordinate and monitor across schools.
Estimating the 2% Similar to the 1%, districts may assess more than 2% but only 2% may be included as proficient in accountability calculations. – Districts must be careful: if more than 2% are assessed, the overage must be included as not- proficient in accountability calculations.
Estimating the 2% The 2% calculation is based on the number of enrolled students in accountability grades at the time of testing. Eligibility guidelines must be followed – only eligible students may participate in the CRCT-M (or the GAA).
Relation to the 1% A district may exceed the 2% only to the extent the district is under the 1%. – If a district assesses.8% on the GAA, the district may have 2.2% proficient on the CRCT-M. A district may exceed 3% only if a waiver has been granted to exceed the 1%. – If a district has received a waiver to allow for 1.15% on the GAA, the district may have a total of 3.15% included in accountability calculations. – Districts must continue to apply for 1% waivers. – There is no waiver for 2%.
Example: Enrollment in accountability Grades = 1000 About 11% SWD in state population A system that is similar to the state might have about 110 SWD. Ideally a school or system should only test up to allowable percents for SWD. – 1% on GAA = 10 SWD – 2% on CRCT-M = 20 SWD – The remaining 8% would take CRCT = 80 SWD In this example it is assumed that the participation guidelines are followed and only eligible students are assessed with the GAA and CRCT-M.
IMPORTANT! There is no waiver for the 2% per Federal Regulations. – If the number of students who achieve a proficient score on the CRCT-M in a district exceeds 2%, the overage will be included as non- proficient in accountability calculations. With the implementation of the CRCT-M, the interim flexibility for the SWD subgroup is no longer available.
