  2. From WASL to High School Proficiency Exam to End of Course Completion items will be piloted in 2011 and will be operational in 2012. The K-12 Science Learning Standards will be assessed beginning in 2012.

  3. HSPE 2011 – Unchanged from WASL • HSPE will assess the EALRs in the 2005 GLEs, 40% EALR 1 (Content), 40% EALR 2 (Inquiry) and 20% EALR 3 (Application) • Consist of investigation, application, and systems scenarios, plus a small number of stand-alone items • No time limit

  4. HSPE 2011 – Changes from WASL New type of question – completion item

  5. HSPE 2011 – Changes from WASL • No extended response (4-point) items, replaced with short answer (2-point) • Example - hypothesis, prediction or materials are gone!

  6. Implementation Timeline • HSPE for 2011 will assess the 2005 GLEs • Biology EOC in 2012 will be administered to any student enrolled in a course credited as high school level biology • K-12 Science Learning Standards • Online participation will be voluntary • Goal: 50% Online in 2012 • First retake opportunity for biology EOC is likely to be January/February 2013 • Possible additional science EOCs? • TBD by Legislature • OSPI recommendation in December

  7. Science Graduation Requirement: Classes of 2013 and Beyond • Under current rules, the students in the classes of 2013 and beyond can meet the science graduation requirement by: • Passing the science HSPE in spring 2011 and/or summer 2011 • 9th graders are not eligible to take science HSPE • Passing the biology EOC • Begins in spring 2012; scores available August 2012 • Meeting comparison scores on the SAT 2 or ACT • Scores set during the 2012-13 school year • Passing a science Collection of Evidence • Becomes available in the 2011-12 school year
