  • Any student (class of 2015) enrolled in a high
    school level biology course
  • All 10th graders who have not yet met standard
  • Meets the high school science testing requirement
    of NCLB
  • 9th grade scores from 2012 were banked for NCLB

12
Alternatives for ELL and Spec Ed

Lessons Learned from Scoring
32
Lessons Learned Systems Thinking
  • 5th Grade, 8th Grade, and High School
  • Define system, subsystem, input, and output
  • Explain how a change to a part of the system
    might affect the entire system
  • 8th Grade and High School
  • Define boundaries, and open and closed systems
  • Explain how a change to an input of an open
    system might affect the entire system
  • Make complete comparisons between models and
    systems and explain how those differences affect
    the behavior of the model
  • High School
  • Define positive and negative feedback
  • Identify regulatory inputs and outputs of
    feedback systems
  • Describe components, boundaries and flows within
    given systems
  • Explain how systems function and interact with
    other systems
  • Determine whether or not a given system is in
    equilibrium

33
Lessons Learned -- Application Thinking
  • Science in the Real World5th Grade (APPH), 8th
    Grade (APPB), and High School (APPA)
  • Scientists answer questions about the natural
    world and engineers solve problems to help people
    reach goals.
  • Make connections between scientific concepts and
    how they are applied by people in various
    careers.
  • Research Explore Items8th Grade and High
    School
  • Be detailed in explaining scientific research to
    do or questions to pose which could help solve
    the problem.
  • Plan Test Items5th Grade and 8th Grade
  • Include a scientific reason for a solution plan
    and describe an adequate scientific test that
    includes measurement(s).

34
Lessons Learned -- Application Thinking
  • Test Solution ItemsHigh School Only
  • Describe a method for testing both the solutions
    and the data needed to determine the
    effectiveness of each solution.
  • Choosing a Solution Items 5th Grade and 8th
    Grade
  • Give more than one reason for choosing a
    solution/design.
  • Supply the scientific principle or property that
    results in a solution being successful.
  • Criteria Constraints ItemsHigh School Only
  • Know that constraints are limitations imposed on
    possible solutions in the technological design
    process. Describe a constraint on a solution with
    an adequate description of the constraint that
    causes the solution not to work.

Test and Item Specifications
37
Test and Item Specifications--Vocabulary
  • Items use language targeted at a readability
    level two-grade-levels below the tested grade,
    except for required scientific terms listed in
    the Vocabulary section of the Test and Item
    Specifications document.
