1 Pitt County Schools Testing & Accountability The ABC’s of Public Education

2 Testing & Accountability Services The Three Major Components ABCs Growth - (Growth and High Growth are determined differently since 2006) ABCs Performance Composite (additional courses counting in composite and revised tests will have major impact, will impact different grade level span differently) AYP Proficiency (five ways – Bar, Safe Harbor, Confidence Interval, Growth and Targeted Assistance

3 Testing & Accountability Services The New ABCs Formula and How growth will be determined Growth Scores for EOG Reading & Math and EOC subjects are determined by using the same formula EOG Reading and Math Growth Scores are determined by using two years of scores if available EOC Growth Scores are determined by using predictor subject(s) – examples (Algebra 1 predictor – 8 th Grade EOG Math) & (Physics – Chemistry & Geometry)

4 Testing & Accountability Services Expected Growth Each student will have a Growth Score for each subject (Read, Math, EOC Courses) if have predictor score(s) All scores are average to determine Expected Growth for a school (70 (EOC)/140 (EOG) days attendance requirement) If the average is 0.00 or greater, Expected Growth is met (HS have additional components in the model in addition to EOC scores)

5 Testing & Accountability Services Expected Growth The other components are changes in drop out rate, competency pass rate and percentages of students meeting the College University Prep/College Tech Prep standards. Subject to change for 2008

6 Testing & Accountability Services High Growth The school must make expected growth 60% of students must have positive growth (0 or above)

7 Testing & Accountability Services What impact did the New Formula have in 2006? Fewer schools met Expected Growth – 54% (3-8) and 57% (HS) Fewer schools must High Growth (especially HS) – 10% (3-8) and 18% (HS)

8 Testing & Accountability Services Growth

9 Testing & Accountability Services ABCs Proficiency Subjects Grades 3-8: EOG Reading & Math, 4 th & 7 th Writing, 8 th Grade Computer Skills and scores from alternate tests High Schools: EOC courses, 10 th grade Writing and scores from alternate tests All students who take test(s) count – no attendance requirement

10 Testing & Accountability Services ABCs Proficiency (Composite Score) Do not compare Composite Scores or Proficiency if new tests or less tests in composite Examples – EOG Math in 2006 was different test than previous year (scores were lower), Writing was not in previous Composites, EOC 2007 Math Subjects (Algebra 1, Algebra 2 & Geometry) & English 1 are new tests (scores are lower especially Algebra 1), EOC 2007 Science Subjects (Chemistry, Physical Science & Physics) are not in the Composite Do not compare Composite Scores of one school vs. another unless schools have same grade spans Writing Proficiency and Online Computer Skills has different impact at schools with different grade spans Examples - Writing – K-4 (approx. 1/5), K-5 (approx. 1/7), K-8 (approx. 2/15), 4-8 (1/12), 6-8 (approx. 1/8), 7-8 (approx. 1/6) Online Computer Skills – K-8 (approx. 1/15), 4-8 (approx. 1/12), 6-8 (approx 1/8), 7-8 (approx. 1/6)

14 NCLB Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) 10 Subgroups (School as a whole (All), Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Native American Indian, Multiracial, Student with Disability (EC), Economically Disadvantaged Students (FRL), Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Attendance (Grades 3 – 8), Graduation (HS) Subgroups must have 40 or more students in order to count in either 95% testing requirement or proficiency (also must meet 140 days requirement for proficiency) How to count – Examples - School met 21/21, School met 10/10

15 Testing & Accountability Services NCLB Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) Grades 3 – 8 (EOG Reading and Math - includes Regular and Alternate Assessments) HS – Students in Grade 10 (English 1/Grade 10 Writing & Algebra 1 or OCS English/Writing and Math)
