highlights
“Highlights”
  • Enter your school or district’s highlights from 2004 EXPLORE or PLAN. (Example: Our district’s EXPLORE composite score is up 1.5 points from last year and now meets the state average.)
  • How does your school or district compare to the national average? (Example: Our school’s EXPLORE scores for Math exceed the national average by 0.8 point!)

6

highlights or lowlights
“Highlights” or “Lowlights”
  • Is there a certain demographic in your school or district with exceptional gains or losses in EXPLORE or PLAN scores? (Example: African-American/Black students are showing the greatest achievement growth, although at a lower level than the State avg.)
  • Of the four subject areas tested, do any stand out from the rest (scores increasing/decreasing; scores 1 point or more above or below?) (Example: Our school’s average English score is 2.1 points below the Reading score. Why is that?)

EPAS PLAN Results

In Louisiana last year, of the 79% public school EPAS-tested students stating that they plan to go to college or technical school, 54% are planning to take college preparatory core coursework.*

*College core coursework includes four or more years of English and three or more years each of math, social studies and natural science.

How many of your students are planning to take the core curriculum? Do those students have plans for postsecondary education?

Getting Every Louisiana Student Ready for College and Work

1. How do we reinforce the need for high school students to take the Regents’ core?

2. How do we communicate the need for students to take the most rigorous courses within the Regents’ core?

3. How do we communicate the need for students to take the most rigorous courses beyond the Regents’ core?

4. How do we ensure that academic courses are sufficiently rigorous?
