It is important to remember that we have raised expectations significantly in the 2012-13 school year.
Goal in the Past: Grade-level Proficiency or Better
Grade-level Proficiency and
Career- and College- Readiness
School Year: 2011-12
1992-93 to 2011-12 EOG General Test Multiple Choice Test Results Statewide Percent of Student at or above Level III in BOTH Reading and Mathematics
Beginning of ABCs K-8 Accountability Model
Implementation of More Rigorous Mathematics Standards
Implementation of More Rigorous Reading Standards
What does this mean? Results Statewide Percent of Student at or above Level III in BOTH Reading and Mathematics
Reading requires more careful analysis to comprehend the information/ideas
Mathematics requires understanding and application of mathematical processes; not just arithmetic
English Language Arts/Reading: Grade 6 EOG Sample Question Results Statewide Percent of Student at or above Level III in BOTH Reading and Mathematics
What is the effect of the simile in paragraph 25?
A to show how surprised Liam was to see the fairy queen
B to describe the speed of the old woman’s movements
C to explain how much the fairy queen liked Liam’s choices
D to illustrate that Liam was confused by the old woman
This item requires the student to identify the simile and then identify its impact/its purpose in the story. This goes beyond reading a story and re-telling the main events.
Mathematics: Grade 8 EOG Sample Question Results Statewide Percent of Student at or above Level III in BOTH Reading and Mathematics
This item requires the student to compare properties of two functions, each represented in a different way (equation and table). This goes beyond simply determining the rate of change of a function.
Science: Biology Results Statewide Percent of Student at or above Level III in BOTH Reading and Mathematics
This item requires the student to understand how various disease agents can influence natural selection and then select the correct cause and effect relationship. This goes beyond only knowing the content.
Proficiency: Percent of students who are prepared for the next grade level and on track to be ready for college and career
Growth: An indication of the rate at which students in the school learned over the past year. The standard is roughly equivalent to a year’s worth of growth for a year of instruction. Defined as (1) did not meet, (2) met, or (3) exceeded expected growth
Progress Targets: Federal Annual Measurable Objectives (AMOs) for reading and mathematics and state targets for science and the new high school accountability measures
Now What? Targets
College and Career Readiness
Students are learning and growing, but there is a new expectation
Every Student READY Targets
