GRADES 3 - 8 Reading: Grades 3 – 8 Math: Grades 3 – 8 Writing: Grades 4 & 7 Science: Grades 5 & 8 Social Studies: Grade 8 2 HIGH SCHOOL COURSES MathEnglishScienceSocial Studies Algebra I Geometry Algebra II English I English II English III Biology Chemistry Physics World Geography World History U.S. History

SAMPLING OF STAAR CHANGES  LINKED TO COLLEGE READINESS  INCREASED RIGOR READINESS & SUPPORTING STANDARDS  4-HOUR TIME LIMIT  WRITING EXPANDED TO 2 DAYS ESSAY LIMITED TO 26 LINES  STAAR, STAAR MODIFIED, STAAR ALT

STAAR RESULTS  GRADES 3 – 8 RAW SCORES, ONLY PASSING SCORES NOT SET BY TEA UNTIL LATE 2012 STUDENT SUCCESS INITIATIVE (SSI) SUSPENDED IN GRADES 5 & 8 READING AND MATH FOR 2012  STAAR END-OF-COURSE PASSING STANDARDS SET IN FEBRURY 2012 CUMULATIVE PASSING STANDARDS SET IN JUNE 2012

6 HIGH SCHOOL COURSES MathEnglishScienceSocial Studies Algebra I Geometry Algebra II English I English II English III Biology Chemistry Physics World Geography World History U.S. History Middle School students taking a high school course will take both grade level STAAR and STAAR EOC, i.e. STAAR 8 th Math and STAAR Algebra I

What does the law (HB 3) say?  The STAAR EOC assessment score will account for 15% of a student’s final grade in the course. ○ …but how to apply to Semester 1, Semester 2, and final grade is a district decision ○ …and “a relationship should exist” between the 15% EOC requirement and GPA / Class Rank

How will the final grade be distributed?  85% from teacher Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II Biology, Chemistry, Physics English I, English II, English III World Geography, World History, U.S. History  15% from EOC The STAAR EOC assessment score will account for 15% of the student’s final course grade.

New Student Performance Levels P E R F O R M A N C E Level I Unsatisfactory Academic Performance Level II Satisfactory Academic Performance Level III Advanced Academic Performance Minimum Score 90100 Cut score RHSP: Algebra II & English III DAP: Algebra II & English III

New Student Performance Levels  Cumulative Score: # of EOC’s taken in a content area multiplied by a passing score For example: 3 x 70 = 210 Algebra I = 70 Geometry = 70 Algebra II = 70

Example: 15% EOC for Final Grade and Course Credit in Middle School Semester 1Semester 2EOCFinal Grade for Course / Credit ALGEBRA I Adjusted Grade After EOC Pending Credit Pending Credit Final Grade (Not Weighted) on Transcript Student receives 1.0 credit 82 88 75 85 [((82+88) / 2]*.85 = 72.25 + 75*.15 = 11.25 83.50

Example: 15% EOC for Final Grade AND Class Rank (2013-2014) Semester 1Semester 2EOCClass Rank & Final Course Grade ALGEBRA I 828875 EOC must be included for class rank Adjusted Grade After EOC Pending Credit Pending Credit Final Grade (Not Weighted) on Transcript Student receives 1.0 credit Quality Points for Class Rank 82 + 4 = 86 Quality Points for Class Rank 88 + 4 = 92

Example: 15% EOC for English Final Grade, Course Credit, and Class Rank Sem. 1Sem. 2Year Average EOCFinal Course Grade on Transcript Credit ENGLISH I 7076 Reading EOC Writing EOC Calculation 68 (68*.075) 5.1* 75 (75*.075) 5.6* 62.1 + 5.1 + 5.6 72.8 73 1.0 Pending Credit Pending Credit [((70+76) / 2 ]*.85 62.1* [((74+80) / 2] *.85 = 65.45 65.45 + 5.1 + 5.6 = 76.15 Double final weighted grade for class rank points 76.15 x 2 = 152.30

EOC Retakes & Recalculation  By law, EOC Retakes are allowed by the student for any reason; however, BISD will recalculate EOC Retakes for final grade posted on AAR only until the student earns course credit. Highest EOC Retake score will be used for cumulative score after credit is earned.  EOC Retakes for Class Rank Beginning with 9 th graders entering high school in 2013-2014, FIRST TIME EOC is scored with an “S code” by Pearson.

How are we preparing for STAAR?  District- and Campus-Level Professional Development  Curriculum Collaboration & Alignment  Instructional Materials & Resources  Local Policy and Regulation Revisions  Parent Information on BISD Web Page

Report Cards  1 st Semester Notice 9 th Grade and 7 th /8 th in EOC Courses  End-of-Year Report Cards – Possibly 2 Preliminary in early June Final in mid-June after EOC scores received

To Be Determined  2012 Summer School 5 weeks from May 31 to July 9 for intensive remediation Location, Teachers, Curriculum, EOC Test Administrators/Proctors  Future changes to EIC Local (Class Rank) in preparation for 2013-14 9 th Grade Cohort CBE, Correspondence Courses, Electronic Courses, Final Ranking of Seniors
