WELCOME TO EOG NIGHT September 15, 2011
When is the test? May 14 – 18, 2012 We will test on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. We will be tested in Math and Reading. Fifth grade will also be tested in Science.

Math Achievement Level LevelDescription Scale Score Range Students performing at this level do not have sufficient mastery of knowledge and skills in this subject area to be successful at the next grade level. Students performing at this level demonstrate inconsistent mastery of knowledge and skills in this subject and are minimally prepared to be successful at the next grade level. Students performing at this level consistently demonstrate mastery of grade level subject matter and skills and are well prepared for the next grade level Students performing at this level consistently perform in a superior manner clearly beyond that required to be proficient at grade level work –
What will be on the Math EOG’s? GradeGoal 1 Number and Operations Goal 2 Measurement Goal 3 Geometry Goal 4 Data Analysis and Probability Goal 5 Algebra 3rd35-40%10-12%12-15% 20-25%
Goal 1: Number and Operations (35-40%) Place value to 9,999 Subtraction Addition Estimating/Rounding Multiplication and Division Basic properties (identity, commutative, associative, order of operations) Fractions Comparing/ordering
Goal 1: Number and Operations Which place value is used to show that 5,487 is less than 5,874? a)Ones place b)Tens place c)Hundreds place d)Thousands place
Goal 2: Measurement (10-12%) Time/Elapsed time Capacity Length Mass Temperature
Goal 2: Measurement On Megan’s trip to her grandmother’s, she will spend 1 hour and 35 minutes on the airplane from Charlotte to Washington, D.C.; 1 hour and 15 minutes from Washington, D.C., to New York; and 45 minutes from New York to Boston. What is the total amount of time she will be on an airplane? A) 7 hr 10 min B) 5 hr 10 min C) 3 hr 35 min D) 1 hr 35 min
Goal 3: Geometry Mrs. Ryan shows her class 2 groups of shapes. Then she asks, “ Which rule was used to sort these shapes into groups?” A)Large things and small things B)Triangles and squares C)Circles and figures with 4 sides D)Triangles and figures with 4 sides
Goal 4: Data Analysis and Probability (12-15%) Circle graphs and tables Permutations Probability Example: Maria wants to take some of her toys to her grandmother’s house. Maria has a video game, a stuffed animal, and a doll. How many choices does she have if she can pick 2 different items to take to her grandmother’s house? A) 2 B) 3 C) 6 D) 9
Goal 4: Data Analysis and Probability What is the probability that the spinner will land on red? A)2/6 B)2/8 C)3/5 D)3/8
Goal 5: Algebra (20-25%) Number patterns Shape patterns Skip counting to extend pattern Value of an unknown Example: What is the value of the unknown in the number sentence ___ x 3 = 12?
Goal 5: Algebra What shape will be in the fifth space?
What can you do at home? “Do math” with your child at home as problem – solving partners. Use word problems. Newspapers – graphs and charts Weather reports – charts, graphs, data, and statistics Sporting events – data and statistics Grocery store – measurement and estimation Recipes – measurement Road trips – distance, time, mileage problems By “doing math” together, you will demonstrate that learning mathematics is fun.

Achievement Levels for the EOG Reading Comprehension Test LevelDescription Scale Score Range Students performing at this level do not have sufficient mastery of knowledge and skills in this subject area to be successful at the next grade level. Students performing at this level demonstrate inconsistent mastery of knowledge and skills in this subject and are minimally prepared to be successful at the next grade level. Students performing at this level consistently demonstrate mastery of grade level subject matter and skills and are well prepared for the next grade level Students performing at this level consistently perform in a superior manner clearly beyond that required to be proficient at grade level work
Reading Selection Types Literary Selections (fiction, non-fiction, and poetry) Informational Selections (content, consumer) A variety of selections allows for assessment of reading for various purposes: To experience literature To gain information To perform tasks To apply critical analysis and evaluation
What is on the Reading EOG’s? 8 selections ( 58questions) Four types of items –Cognition –Interpretation –Critical Stance –Connections
What is on the reading EOG’s? Reading and knowledge of vocabulary Literary and informational texts –Literary texts: fiction, poetry, and literary non-fiction such as biographies, letters, journals, and essays. –Informational texts: content areas (art, science, math, social studies, etc.) and consumer selections ( pamphlets, reviews, recipes, how – to, etc)
EOG Goals and Percentages for Reading Cognition (initial understanding)38% –Purpose –Main idea –Supporting details –Summarizing main points –Vocabulary in context (context clues) –Point of view
Cognition What is the main idea of the selection? Based on the context of paragraph 3, what does XXX mean? (vocabulary in context) What is the purpose of the first subheading in the selection? Which characteristic best describes Joe? (Answer is clearly stated in the selection)
EOG Goals and Percentages for Reading Interpretation (digging deeper)37% –Clarifying –Identifying the tone/mood –Making inferences –Drawing conclusions –Making generalizations
Interpretation What is the significance of Joe’s decision to buy the bicycle? What is the tone/mood of the selection? Based on the selection, what will most likely happen next? Which characteristic best describes Joe? (answer is not clearly stated in the selection)
EOG Goals and Percentages for Reading Critical Stance 19% –Compare/contrast within text –Fact and opinion –Determining the impact of literary terms –Complete analogies in a text
Critical Stance How is X different from Y? How does Joe change from the beginning to the end of the selection? What is the effect of beginning the selection with ____________? What is ironic about X? The author wrote XYZ in capital letters to emphasize which quality? What effect is created by the author’s repetition of the words XYZ?
EOG Goals and Percentages for Reading Connections (going beyond the text) 6% –Compare/contrast between selections and outside of the selection –Connecting elements in the text and information outside of the text
Connections (going beyond the text) Which experience is most similar to Joe’s experience in the selection? How would this experience help Joe the next time he buys a bicycle? People who play this game are most likely to have which of the following characteristics?
How can I help at home? Establish time for your child to read Provide your child with a variety of suitable reading materials Take time to discuss interesting books you and your child have read Model reading by reading a variety of materials Discuss the purpose of different text types such as fiction, letter, newspapers, etc Ensure that your child reads independently each day at a comfortable reading level. ( Reading materials should not be too hard or too easy in terms of subject and content.)
