1 Including Algebra 1 EOC

2  On December 19 th 2011, new scales and achievement level cut scores were adopted by the Florida Board of Education.  Cut scores will impact current 10 th grade students who will take FCAT 2.0 Reading and Math in April  Current high school sophomores will be required to attain an achievement level 3 on FCAT 2.0 Reading and Math assessment in order to fulfill graduation requirements.

3 Scores are to be reported in only two ways As developmental scale scores which differ by grade level One of five achievement levels

4 2010 Achievement Levels 2011+Achievement Levels Scale score range from 100 to 500 Large range within achievement levels (Gr3 level 1: = 158-point range) All levels based on same scale ( for grades 3-10) D evelopmental scale score range differs by grade level Small range within achievement levels (Gr3 level 1: ; 41-point range) All levels based on different scale at each grade level

5

6 % of 3 rd grade students scored Level 3 or above 2011 (new achievement levels) 57% of 3 rd grade students scored Level 3 or above

7  The minimum score for a current tenth grade student to “PASS” FCAT 2.0 Reading is:  245 (Level 3). While this seems like a lower overall number, the scale is much narrower. The band width in Level 3 is only 10 scale score points. ( )  All current 10 th grade students are required to attain a LEVEL 3 to meet graduation requirements.

8  Most retakes are Computer-Based Tests (CBT)  Current 12 th grade retake students will take the FCAT Reading assessment. They will need a minimum score of 300 to meet graduation requirements. (DSS of 1926)  Current 11 th grade retake students will take the FCAT 2.0 Reading assessment. The passing score will be the same passing score they were required to attain when they took the assessment as 10 th graders, a matched scale score of 300.

9  Third grade students must attain a minimum score of 182 (Level 2) in order to be promoted to 4 th Grade.  While this seems like a lower overall number, the scale is narrower. The band within Level 2 is only 15 developmental scale score points. ( )  In past years, the scale was from ( Range of 400 scale points).  The current scale for 3 rd grade is (Range of 120 developmental scale score points).  Only third grade students who score at Level 1 are required to be retained if they are not granted a good cause exemption.

12 ***Students entering 9 th grade in the school year must achieve a Level 3 (minimum score of 399) on the Algebra 1 EOC in order to meet their graduation requirement. (This also applies to current 8 th grade students taking Algebra I in middle school).

14  Students entering 9 th grade in must take the Geometry EOC which will count 30% of their grade. They must pass the course to meet their graduation requirement. ◦ For scores will be reported by the use of scaled scores and achievement levels defined by the baseline assessment.  Students entering 9 th grade in must achieve a passing score on the EOC to meet their graduation requirement.

15  For scores on the FCAT 2.0 Science shall be reported by the use of scaled scores and achievement levels defined by the baseline assessment.

16  Students entering 9 th grade in must take the Biology EOC which will count 30% of their grade. They must pass the course to meet their graduation requirement. ◦ For scores will be reported by the use of scaled scores and achievement levels defined by the baseline assessment.  Students entering 9 th grade in must achieve a passing score on the Biology EOC to meet their graduation requirement.
