2 Current legislation requires the phase-out of high school TAKS and replaces it with 12 EOC assessments in  English I, English II, English III  Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II  Biology, Chemistry, Physics  World Geography, World History, U.S. History 2

3  Freshman class of 2011–2012 is first group to have EOC assessments as a graduation requirement  That is the current 7 th graders 3

4 4 Plan for phase-out HS TAKS and phase-in EOC assessments *Out-of-school testers and 12 th grade re-testers 2009– – – – – –2015 GR 9TAKS EOC GR 10TAKS EOC GR 11TAKS EOC GR 12TAKS* EOC or TAKS*

5  All 12 EOC assessments will be available in 2011–2012  Standard setting activities for the EOC program is planned for fall 2011 so that student performance can be reported after the spring 2012 administration 5

6  In order to graduate, a student must achieve a cumulative score that is at least equal to the product of the number of EOC assessments taken in that content area and a scale score that indicates satisfactory performance  For each of the four core content areas, the cumulative score ≥ n x passing scale score, where n = number of assessments taken 6

7  A student must achieve a minimum score, as determined by the commissioner, for the score to count towards the student’s cumulative score  A student’s cumulative score is determined using the student’s highest score on each EOC assessment 7

8  If the passing scale score on each of the 3 mathematics EOC assessments happens to be 1000, then  The cumulative score ≥ 3 x 1000  The cumulative score ≥ FOR EXAMPLE:

9  If the minimum scale score on each of the 3 mathematics EOC assessments happens to be 900, then  Students must score at least 900 on each of the 3 mathematics EOC assessments  But scoring 900 on each of the 3 mathematics EOC assessments will not meet the cumulative score requirement of FOR EXAMPLE:

10  If a student scores › 1200 on Algebra I › 800 on Geometry › 1100 on Algebra II  The student’s cumulative score is 2300  800 does not meet the minimum score requirement of 900 and therefore cannot be used towards the cumulative score 10 FOR EXAMPLE:

11  If a student scores › 950 on Algebra I › 1000 on Geometry › 900 on Algebra II  The student’s cumulative score is 2850  2850 does not meet the cumulative score requirement of 3000; therefore the student must retest 11 FOR EXAMPLE:

12 For students on the minimum plan  The cumulative score is based on the number of courses taken for which an EOC assessment exists  The cumulative score requirement may vary by subject area 12

13  In addition to meeting the cumulative score requirement in each of the four core content areas, students on the recommended high school program have to perform satisfactorily on EOC assessments for › Algebra II › English III 13

14  In addition to meeting the cumulative score requirement in each of the four core content areas, students on the distinguished achievement program have to perform satisfactorily on the college-readiness component of the EOC assessments for › Algebra II › English III 14

15  If a student does not achieve the minimum score on an EOC assessment, the student shall retake the assessment  If a student does not perform satisfactorily on the college-readiness component of the EOC assessments for Algebra II or English III, the student may retake the assessment 15

16  A student is not required to retake a course as a condition of retaking an EOC assessment  A school district shall provide accelerated instruction to each student who fails to perform satisfactorily on an EOC assessment 16

17  A student’s score on an EOC assessment will be worth 15% of the student’s final grade for that course  A school district is not required to use the student’s score on subsequent administrations to determine the student’s final grade for that course 17

18  A student’s satisfactory performance on an AP test, IB exam, SAT subject-area test, or another assessment determined to be at least as rigorous as an EOC assessment may be used as a factor in determining whether the student satisfies the cumulative score requirement  A student’s satisfactory performance on a PSAT or a preliminary ACT test may be used as a factor in determining whether the student satisfies the cumulative score requirement 18

19  College readiness means the level of preparation a student must attain in English language arts and mathematics courses to enroll and succeed, without remediation, in an entry-level general education course for credit in that same content area for a baccalaureate degree or associate degree program (House Bill 3, Section a) 19

20  College and career readiness standards have been incorporated into the TEKS for English language arts, mathematics, and science  College and career readiness standards are in the process of being incorporated into TEKS for social studies 20

21  Because the college and career readiness standards are being incorporated into the TEKS, these standards will be assessed on the EOC assessments 21

22  If a link is substantiated between performance on science and/or social studies EOC assessments and college readiness, then a college readiness standard may be established 22

23  EOC assessments may not be administered earlier than the first full week in May  The law provides an exception for English I, English II, and English III which may be administered earlier in the spring 23

24  In the future, TEA is planning multiple administrations of EOC assessments for › students who complete the course at different times of the year › retest opportunities  Planning for administrations in › spring › summer › fall 24

25  Follows the Test Development Process posted on the TEA student assessment website  Involves educator committees such as focus groups, advisory committees, item reviews, and data reviews  Involves the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board  Includes higher-education faculty 25

26 For operational EOC assessments  Data files available in summer › Overall raw score › Performance by objective  Summary reports available in summer › Overall raw score frequency distribution › Objective level raw score frequency distribution › Cumulative raw score frequency distribution 26

28 EOC assessments  Will be linked to college readiness  Will have “fewer, clearer, deeper” focus  Begin in 2011 –

29  Convene educator advisory committees in early 2010  Review curriculum to determine what should be eligible for assessment  Review assessed curriculum to determine what should be the focus of the assessment 29

30  Focus on knowledge and skills that are considered “non-negotiable” for success in that course and are important for preparedness in the next course  Focus on these specific knowledge and skills each year with others rotating into the assessments across years 30
