Beginning with the 2010-2011 school year, a student shall not receive a New Mexico diploma of excellence if the student has not demonstrated competence in the subject areas of mathematics, reading and language arts, writing, social studies and science, including a section on the constitution of the United States and the constitution of New Mexico, based on a standards-based assessment or assessments or a portfolio of standards-based indicators established by the department by rule. 


Assessment Requirements for HS Graduation

Primary Demonstration of Competency

Math, Reading, Science: Pass SBA/HSGA

Writing and Social Studies: Pass 1 EoC


Alternate demonstration of competency adc
Alternate Demonstration of Competency (ADC)

ADC: Provides additional opportunities for students to meet assessment requirements.

ADCs include:

EoCs

CCR Indicators

See Graduation Checklist for options and CCR cut scores.

  • If students do not demonstrate competency initially, they may use cut scores for one of the following as an ADC:

    • ACT

    • PLAN

    • PSAT

    • SAT

    • Accuplacer

    • COMPASS

    • IB Program

    • AP

    • EoC


Eocs as adcs for high school graduation
EoCs as ADCs for High School Graduation

  • ADC for all subjects

  • Two chances to pass an ADC

    • Two total attempts in math, reading, science

    • Three total attempts in writing and social studies

  • May take during any established testing windows

    Standard Setting

    • NEED DATA TO SET PASSING SCORES

    • Will be conducted in spring 2014

      • “Proficient”—passing

      • “Nearing Proficient”—not passing

    • Use “Body of Work Method” for writing.

    • Use “Bookmark Method” for all other subjects.

      • Establish Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) for Borderline Proficient based on NM Standards and Benchmarks.

      • Define cut score for Proficient based on PLDs.

    • Passing rates higher than SBA.

    EoCs for High School Graduation

    There is no composite math/reading score for EoCs.

    If students do not achieve the 73 composite score on the SBA, they must take EoCs in any subject(s) in which they did not achieve a proficient score.


    Assessment requirements1
    Assessment Requirements

    A student must attempt ALL administrations of the SBA/HSGA (H2, H3, H4 retakes) before implementing a passing EoC or other ADC score.

    Students may bank passing scores proactively.


    Requirements exceptions waivers for eocs
    Requirements, Exceptions, Waivers for EoCs

    H5 students in the 2013 cohort, 2014 graduates, and beyond must pass SBA/HSGA (math, reading, science), writing EoC, and social studies EoC OR an ADC to graduate.

    EXCEPTION: 2014 graduates who passed U.S. History in 2011‒2012 or earlier may be waived from the social studies EoC.


    Eocs for ells
    EoCs for ELLs

    PED provides Spanish translations of all EoCs.

    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.)


    Eocs for ells1
    EoCs for ELLs

    English Language Arts assessments may NOT be translated.

    ELLs with a native language other than Spanish may demonstrate competency in writing by passing their language arts courses and completing an EoC waiver.

    The EoC waiver is on the PED waiver website.
