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

College Readiness Test

slide7
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.
slide8
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.
slide9
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
  • 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

  • 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”

(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 Ready”

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”

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.
