1 Test Coordinator Training Spring 2014 End-of-Course Exams (EoCs)
EoCsPurpose 1.To align course curricula (content, skills, rigor) statewide. 2.For HS students to meet graduation requirements 3.For optional use in the Educator Effectiveness System (EES) 2

PED-Developed EoCs 4 Elementary, Middle, and High School Paper-Based Assessments (PBA) Student Performance Assessments (SPA) Core and elective subjects Developed by groups of NM Educators
PED-Developed EoCs 5 Blueprints available on PED website http://ped.state.nm.us/Assess mentAccountability/Assessmen tEvaluation/EOC/index.html http://ped.state.nm.us/Assess mentAccountability/Assessmen tEvaluation/EOC/index.html Include assessed standards, specification tables, admin. guides (for SPAs) Essential for teachers!
PED-Developed EoCs 6 Is the PED EoC appropriate for my class? Check framework. Assessed standards should align with curriculum.
District-Developed EoCs 7 When to create? If no EoC exists for a course If PED EoC does not align with curriculum* *Must be significantly different
EoCs for Use in Educator Effectiveness 8 1.PED-Developed 2.District-Developed/PED- Approved 3.District-Developed Common Assessments (20132014) 4.Teacher-Developed (20132014) EoCs must be used in the preferential order listed below:
District-Developed/PED-Approved 9 Use if no PED-Developed EoC for the course Made available statewide once approved, or PED may use items to create new forms. Quality Criteria on PED Website
District-Developed EoCs Required with Submission: Test Blueprint (item type by standard and DOK level) Alignment Analysis Answer Keys/Rubrics Quality Review panel results Bias Review panel results Translations (if necessary) Reliability Analysis plan Release of Assessment
EoC Testing Protocol EoCs are downloadable from SOAP. Maintain test security! Do not maintain local digital copies. Retain paper copies in locked, secure storage.
EoCs for ELLs PED provides Spanish versions of all ADC EoCs including ELA III: Reading and ELA III: Writing. There is the option to translate into other native languages on the district level. The first three continuous years a student attends public school in the U.S., the student may take an EoC in his or her native language. For the following two continuous years, the student may test in his or her native language if he or she still qualifies for ELL status and has submitted a waiver. (Same policy as SBA.)
Spanish EoCs Students may test in Spanish IF: 1.They are current ELL status in their first 3 years in U.S. schools. 2.They are current ELL status in their 4 th or 5 th year in U.S. schools and have filled out the EoC ELL Waiver. 3.They are taking the course in Spanish.

If EoCs are in the District/Charter Educator Effectiveness Plan: Group A: 15% EoCs for Other Measures of Student Achievement Group B: 3550% EoCs for Student Achievement Measures 15
If EoCs are in the District/Charter Educator Effectiveness Plan: Teacher with multiple preps? ONE EoC More data = better results 16
Growth Model 17 Student Achievement Measures based on growth model. PED uses data of past student achievement to produce projected score. Achievement compares projected score to actual student score.
Growth Model 18 If actual student scores are higher than projected student scores, teacher receives a high rating for Student Achievement Measures. Model produces high correlation between predicted and actual scores.
EoCs 19 Correlation between predicted and actual EoC at the student level =.86 At the teacher level =.94
