Presentation Transcript

A = 65.6% of points

B = 61.9 % of points

C = 54.4.% of points

D = 49.4 % of points

F = less than 49.4 % of points

Elementary and Middle Schools = 800 possible points

High Schools = 1600 possible points

• FCAT 2.0 cut scores: increased rigor of test and achievement expectations.
• Moving toward new assessments of reading and mathematics in 2014-15: PARCC
• Adding new measures to the middle school grades (Civics, HS EOCs and Industry Certifications)
• Assimilating EOCs into the school grades model as they are implemented

School Grades in 2011-12 and Beyond – Key Issues
• Changes already written in rule for 2011-12 to increase rigor for high school grades
• Include learning gains for EOCs as required in statute
• Learning gains on the Florida Alternate Assessment for students scoring at the lowest levels
• Learning gains: structure for FCAT 2.0 reading and mathematics
School Grades in 2011-12 and Beyond - Key Issues (continued)
• High school science performance in 2011-12, Biology 1 EOC in its baseline year
• Middle school grades – include high-school level EOCs and Industry Certifications (as available)
• Banking middle school performance on HS level EOCs (Algebra 1 for 2011-12) for high school grades
School Grades in 2011-12 and Beyond - Key Issues (continued)
• Criteria for setting school grading scale
• Review cell size requirements
• Include exceptional education students and ELL students in the percentage of students scoring 3 and above
Elementary Schools
• More rigorous cut scores for Achievement level 3
• 2012-13 – Science
• Include students with disabilities and English language learners (ELLs) in performance calculations (ELLs would be included using the same criteria as we apply for AYP)
• Change cell size requirements in Reading and Math to 10
• Change the learning gains calculation for students that stay in level 1 or 2 to AAAC recommended scale score increases (or AAAC recommended increases + 1 additional scale score)
• Add weight for students who increase their achievement level to level 4 or 5
• Remove level 3 students from the Low 25% calculation
Middle Schools

1 through 6 the same as for elementary schools.

• Remove level 3 students from the Low 25% calculation
• Allow substitution of more rigorous assessments
• Add acceleration component – 2011-12. Decide how to address CAPs issue.
• Add Civics Component – 2014-15
High Schools

1 through 6 are the same as elementary schools

Bank middle school performance on high school EOCs for high school grades

Use the 4 year Federal uniform rate and a 5 year modified federal rate to include both standards and special diplomas

Adjust the points provided or removed for growth and decline

Add component for US History EOC
