1 Welcome! Using MAP for College and Career Readiness

2 Agenda MN Landscape with College and Career Readiness Two College Readiness Studies Completed by NWEA Linking Study for Explore, Plan and ACT Grades 8,10, 11 (2011) Theaker & Johnson study for Grade’s 5-11 to ACT (2012) Results Meeting college readiness benchmarks Using MAP scores to predict proficiency Lexiles Average college freshman requirements Connection with career choices Goal Setting Conversations with your students Setting growth targets What Does the Future Look Like? New study

3 MDE’s Ready, Set, Go MN MN 9 th Graders need Personal Learning Plan

4 Minnesota Students Outperform Nation on ACT MN’s average composite score of 23 was highest in nation among 30 states. MN has led the nation in ACT average for 9 consecutive years.

5 Average growth is not enough in MN Growth

6 Technical rigor provides other insights Proficient bar varies by grade Difficulty of Minnesota Meets the Standard Cut Score National Percentile College Readiness A Study of the Alignment of the NWEA RIT Scale with the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) Testing Program, April 2014

7 Graduation Trends in MN High Schools The goal of the Minnesota Department of Education is to reduce the academic achievement gap and to make sure all students graduate from high school regardless of their background. In 2014, 81.2 percent of Minnesota students graduated from high school, up from 79.8 percent in In addition, every student group showed an increase from the previous year. Since 2011, students have shown increases in graduation rates every single year. This year’s data moved Minnesota closer to a statewide goal of having a 90 percent graduation rate by 2020.

8 Linking Studies

9 NWEA completed two “College Readiness” studies: 1.Linking Study between MAP and the Explore, Plan and ACT Assessments (2011) Grades 8, 10 and 11 2.Robert Theaker & Clay Johnson study between MAP and ACT - took linking study & extended the data down to grade 5 (2012) Method: Active NWEA districts that use EXPLORE, PLAN, and ACT were recruited. ACT data was matched to corresponding MAP data at the individual level Linking Study had 108,000 matched pairs of scores from 26,000 students from 140 schools in 3 states. Theaker & Johnson used only ACT so it was a smaller study

10 Results

11 The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are the minimum ACT college readiness assessment scores required for students to have a high probability of success in credit-bearing college courses. 11 th grade student has a MAP cut score of 236 in the fall on the Reading assessment, then that means they are in 77% for normative percentile rank. That gives them a 50% probability of achieving a 21 on the ACT Reading in the spring. See Probability Table to get higher than 50%. Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College Readiness Test to 16 for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.

12 Results 11 th grade student has a MAP cut score of 255 in the fall on the Math assessment, then that means they are in 83% for normative percentile rank. Meaning: if you got a 255 in fall in math, then you are projected to get 22 on ACT. Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College Readiness Test to 16 for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.

13 Results See higher probability than 50/50 Chance 11th grade student scoring 235 on a MAP reading test taken during the same season would have a 54% chance of meeting the ACT benchmark in reading 11th grade student scoring 240 on a MAP Language Usage test taken during the same season would have a 84% chance of meeting the ACT benchmark in reading 11th grade student scoring 255 on a MAP math test taken during the same season would have a 62% chance of meeting the ACT benchmark in reading

14 Results The MAP cut scores shown in these tables are the minimum estimated scores. Meeting the minimum MAP cut score corresponds to a 50% probability of achieving that benchmark. The ACT College Readiness Benchmarks are the minimum ACT college readiness assessment scores required for students to have a high probability of success in credit-bearing college courses. In addition to the benchmarks for the ACT, there are corresponding benchmarks for ACT Explore taken in eighth, and ACT Plan taken in tenth grade, to gauge student progress in becoming ready for college. Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College Readiness Test to 16 for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.

15 Results Note: In September 2013 ACT raised the benchmarks for the Reading College Readiness Test to 16 for Explore (taken in eighth) 18 for Plan, and 22 for ACT.

16 Results Note: Values were calculated by ACT from empirical data to identify the scores of students with a 50% likelihood of achieving a B average in a freshman-level course.. This research was done with a small number of students for a conference paper. It can provide additional, informal idea of the kind of percentile levels, along with ACT Study and Proficiency Guidelines, that will aid in identifying students as early as Grade 5 who may not be on track for college and career readiness. Theaker and Johnson Study In Reading, if student had ACT score of 16 in reading then they have a 50% chance of getting a B in open enrollment school, then ACT score of 24 in reading then they have a 50% chance of getting a B in a state university, if they got a 29 on ACT in reading then they have a 50% chance of getting a B average in a top university and then if they got 32 on ACT in reading they have a 50% chance of getting a B at an ivy league. In Math, if student had ACT score of 16 in math then they have a 50% chance of getting a B in open enrollment school, then ACT score of 24 in math then they have a 50% chance of getting a B in a state university, if they got a 29 on ACT in math then they have a 50% chance of getting a B average in a top university and then if they got 32 on ACT in math they have a 50% chance of getting a B at an ivy league. Theaker & Johnson matched MAP scores that would project how a student would score on ACT. Example: For a 6 th grader in the fall scored a 226 on MAP, they are on the right path to have an ACT score of 24 when they take it in spring of grade 11.

19 Lexiles

20 Research collaborated with MetaMetrics (developers of the Lexile©) to develop an algorithm to calculate the Lexile© score and range from the RIT scale. Our MAP Reading Reports show Lexile Score - for free! NWEA provides a 150 point Lexile® range with the actual "Lexile® score" being 100 points from the low number and 50 points from the high number. The first 100 points of the range is the student's independent reading range (with 75% comprehension). The top 50 points represent the student's instructional range. MAP Lexile information is great for those high students that are only growing a RIT point or two, because the Lexile number will continue to grow and grow. Lexile score can help you look at where you want to go to college and what you want to study.

21 Lexiles An average Lexile reading level for high school graduate is around An average college freshman Lexile reading level is around Look at this chart, for a student to read the NY Times you need 1380 Lexile.

31 What Does the Future Look Like?

32 Future Projects New Linking Study ACT grades 5-12 out August or September MAP Reports will have toggle between ACT & State Linking Study We will have winter proficiency projections to show how a student will do on ACT without taking MAP in the spring.
