Welcome
Welcome!

  • Introductions

    Working as collaboration among

    • Sectors (4-yr, 2-yr, and K-12)

    • Agencies/initiatives (APTP, SBCTC, TMP, COP, HECB, OSPI)

What we re about
What We’re About

  • Overall goal: Expand existing Math Placement Testing program to provide college-readiness testing at colleges (2- and 4-year) and high schools through out Washington state

  • Objectives for today:

    • Determine initial test specifications

    • Begin creating an item bank

    • Identify critical issues

  • Agenda


Expanded mpt testing program
Expanded MPT Testing Program

Target population: students admitted to baccalaureate institutions or intending to enroll in community colleges

Calculus placement  (CP) Advanced MPT

College readiness 2  (CR2) Intermediate MPT

College readiness 1  (CR1)

Developmental placement  (DP) Compass, etc.

Target population: students admitted to baccalaureate institutions or intending to enroll in community colleges

Target population: 11th grade high school students

Target population: students intending to enroll in community colleges


Development timeline
Development Timeline

Define I-MPT test structure; write new items

Pretest items

Analyze pretest results; create I-MPT and A-MPT tests

Admin new I-MPT and A-MPT tests (for 4-yr schools)

Develop paper-based testing procedures for 2-yr schools

Implement paper-based testing in 2-yr schools

Develop 11th-grade test and pretest procedures

Pretest 11th-grade test

Finalize test and procedures

Admin 11th-grade test

College Readiness Test

Transition Math Project

  • In Phase I TMP developed “college readiness standards”

  • Next step is to develop a way to assess them

  • In reviewing and funding that work, Washington Learns recommended and the State Legislature subsequently required

  • All public colleges and universities must use

  • the same test, and

  • the same performance standard

  • to determine if a student is college ready.


  • Who?

  • Led by TMP, including college and university reps, SBCTC, OSPI, COP and HECB

  • What?

  • “…revise the MPT to serve as a common college readiness test for all 2 and 4-year institutions…”

  • Make the test available to H.S. students to advise them if they are on-track to be college-ready.

  • That test and those determinations must be aligned with actual placement into or out of remedial-level course requirements in the freshmen year.


  • Why?

  • Provide one clear target that everyone agrees on, thereby reducing remediation

  • When?

  • By September 1, 2008 have the test revised

  • All public colleges and universities implement the new test by September 1, 2009

  • Fall 2009 school districts provide tests to students (especially grades 10 & 11)

  • How…?

Math placement testing program
Math Placement Testing Program readiness, see:

  • Two multiple choice, paper and pencil tests:

    • Intermediate Algebra Remedial math  cutoff  Precalc

    • Advanced Algebra Precalc  cutoff  Calculus

    • See handout for actual placement decisions

  • Tests taken by students who:

    • Have been admitted to a state public university

    • Wish to take their first college-level math course


Math placement testing program1
Math Placement Testing Program readiness, see:

  • Administration:

    • Large-group, statewide tests administrations on Saturdays from spring through early summer

    • New student orientation on campuses

    • Walk-in on campuses

  • Governance –APTP

  • Latest major revision Math faculty from across the state met to:

    • Establish the table of specifications

    • Write items that included more contextualized problems, fewer “plug and chug”



Defining college ready
Defining “College Ready” readiness, see:

(Or getting on the same page for rating the relative importance of components of the college readiness standards.)

  • Today’s focus – Begin development of:

    • Testing specifications for measuring college readiness

    • An item bank

  • Today’s task – Operationalize college readiness by :

    • having a notion of what courses a college ready student would and would not place into

    • the relative importance of various college readiness standards

    • what items that measure these standards look like


Defining college ready1
Defining “College Ready” readiness, see:

Purposes of the test(s)

  • To determine whether students are college-ready in terms of their mathematics skills (Yes, No)

  • To make placement decisions

    • If yes above, may take degree-credit-bearing classes

    • If no, must take remedial math (WAC: Algebra 2 and below)

  • To communicate college readiness standards and preparation needs to high school students and faculty


Defining college ready2
Defining “College Ready” readiness, see:

Discussion question: What courses and skills separate college-ready and not-college-ready students? Do not include “math” courses for which you want students who are not-college-ready to gain graduation credit.
