5
Class of 2013 and Beyond Math Credit Requirements
  • At the request of the Legislature, the State
    Board of Education amended the graduation
    requirements rule (WAC 180-51-066) to add a third
    credit of math and to prescribe the content of
    those credits. The rule was adopted in July 2008
    and is in effect for the graduating Class of
    2013.
  • WAC 180.51.066- new revision
  • The State Board of Education recently adopted
    newly revised language for this rule during their
    September 2010 board meeting. Rule language will
    be available from the Code Reviser on October 22,
    2010.

6
Class of 2013 Math Graduation CREDIT
Requirements
  • The three mathematics credits required under this
    section must include the following mathematics
    courses
  • Algebra 1/Integrated Mathematics 1
  • Geometry/Integrated Mathematics 2
  • Algebra II/Integrated Mathematics 3 OR a third
    mathematics credit elected per the students
    educational and career goals as expressed in the
    High School and Beyond Plan
  • CTE-equivalent courses may be used for any of the
    math credits.

7
Class of 2013 Math Graduation CREDIT
Requirements Recent Changes to Rule
  • The State Board of Education made changes to the
    math rule at their September 2010 meeting to
  • Permit students to take two required math courses
    at the same time (e.g., algebra 1 and geometry)
  • Clarify the expected sequence of classes
  • Permit students not to take a required course as
    long as they earn three math credits in high
    school AND take algebra II/integrated mathematics
    3

8
Third credit of Mathematics option
  • If students have a clearly defined career path,
    they will have the opportunity to substitute
    another high school math course for Algebra
    II/Integrated 3, but must obtain parent/guardian
    and high school approval.
  • Students may also earn mathematics credits in the
    relevant career and technical education, or CTE,
    equivalent courses.

FREQUENTLY ASKED Questions www.k12.wa.us/mathema
tics
10
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Are there specific math credits students have to
    earn for the first two credits?
  • Yes. Students must earn 1 credit in algebra
    1/integrated math I, and a second credit in
    geometry/integrated math 2, or earn credits in
    the relevant career and technical education
    (CTE)-equivalent courses.
  • Can students take two of the required courses at
    the same time?
  • Yes, per the rule change effective October 22,
    2010.

11
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • What courses may students take for the third math
    credit?
  • Students may take algebra II, integrated math 3,
    or a rigorous, high school level math course that
    meets the students education and career goals
    identified in the students high school and
    beyond plan. Courses in which the majority of the
    math is at a K-8 level would not qualify for the
    third credit.
  • The intent of the third credit is to enrich and
    build upon the experiences of Algebra/integrated
    math I and geometry/integrated mathematics 2.
    Traditional math examples may include, but are
    not limited to statistics, discrete math, linear
    algebra, and mathematical modeling.

12
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • If students want to take a course other than
    algebra 2 or integrated math III for their third
    math credit, what do they have to do?
  • Choose a course that is based on a
    career-oriented program of study identified in
    their high school and beyond plan
  • Meet with a high school representative and their
    parent/guardian to discuss their goals and the
    admission requirements of two and four-year
    colleges
  • Sign a form, along with the high school
    representative and parent/guardian, to
    acknowledge that 1) the meeting was held, 2) the
    required information was discussed, and 3) all
    parties agree that the course is more appropriate
    for the students education and career goals.

13
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Would career and technical education (CTE)
    mathematics courses satisfy the third credit of
    mathematics?
  • Yes. If the majority of the course is high school
    level math, the title of the class is immaterial.
    CTE math examples might include, but are not
    limited to OSPI-approved frameworks in robotics,
    engineering design I and II, drafting for civil
    and architectural engineering, construction math,
    applied mathematics, business economics math,
    financial literacy, and business statistics.

14
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Can physics count as the third credit of math?
  • If the majority of the course is high school
    level math, the title of the class is
    immaterial.  Students will need to earn the
    minimum state-required credits, as well as any
    local credits, to satisfy graduation
    requirements.  In other words, if physics counts
    as the third math credit, the student will still
    need, under current rules, to earn separately the
    state-required 2.0 credits of science. 

15
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Can a support class in conjunction with algebra
    work for the third credit?
  • No. The support class may count as an elective
    credit, but it cannot satisfy the third credit of
    math. Algebra 1/integrated math 2 and
    geometry/integrated mathematics II or their
    equivalent CTE courses form the basis of a
    students mathematical experiences. The intent of
    the third credit is to enrich and build upon
    those experiences.

16
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Can students take algebra 1 for two periods and
    count it as the first and third credit of math?
  • No. Students have the flexibility of taking
  • algebra 1/integrated math I and
    geometry/integrated mathematics II concurrently
    OR
  • geometry/integrated math 2 and the third
    credit of math concurrently
  • However, they do not have the flexibility of
    taking the first and third credits at the same
    time. Equivalent CTE courses may be substituted
    for all of the courses listed above

17
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • We plan to offer a math class designed for those
    students who havent passed one or more of the
    end-of-course assessments, but have earned the
    first two credits of math in the designated
    classes.  Could this class count as the third
    credit of math?
  • Yes, if the following conditions are met
  • students earned credit in Algebra 1/Integrated
    math I and Geometry/Integrated math 2), or in
    the relevant career and technical education
    (CTE)-equivalent courses, even though they did
    not pass one or both of the end-of-course
    assessments, and
  • the math class is rigorous, high school level
    math that helps the students meet his or her
    education and career goals, and
  • the math class is not the same as the original
    Algebra 1/Integrated math I and/or
    Geometry/Integrated 2 classes.

18
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Can students begin earning the three credits with
    a more advanced math class than algebra 1?
  • Yes, per the rule change effective October 22,
    2010. Based on written district policy, students
    may enroll in higher level classes that meet
    their high school and beyond plan in effect,
    they can skip over one or more lower level
    classes. Students would still need to earn three
    math credits toward high school graduation. If
    skipping over Algebra 1, students will need to
    obtain credits in Geometry, Algebra II and a
    third credit that is consistent with the
    students educational and career goals.

  • Section (1)(a)
  • The assessments shall be implemented statewide in
    the 2010-11 school year.
  • Section (1)(b)
  • The superintendent shall develop end-of-course
    assessments for the first year of high school
    mathematics that include the standards common to
    algebra I and integrated mathematics I and for
    the second year of high school mathematics that
    include the standards common to geometry and
    integrated mathematics 2.
  • The assessments under this subsection (1)(b)
    shall be used to demonstrate that a student meets
    the state standard on the mathematics content
    area of the high school Washington assessment of
    student learning for purposes of RCW 28A.655.061.

22
ESSB 5414 codified as RCW 28A.655.066
  • Section (2)
  • For the graduating classes of 2013 and 2014 and
    for purposes of the certificate of academic
    achievement under RCW 28A.655.061, a student may
    use (a) Results from the end-of-course
    assessment for the first year of high school
    mathematics plus the results from the
    end-of-course assessment for the second year of
    high school mathematics or (b) results from the
    comprehensive mathematics assessment to
    demonstrate that a student meets the state
    standard on the mathematics content area of the
    high school Washington assessment of student
    learning.
  • Funding was not provided for production and
    scoring of the comprehensive mathematics
    assessment a supplemental budget request is
    being moved forward.

23
What Does ...implemented statewide in 2010-11
Mean?
  • In spring 2011, students enrolled in a class that
    the district uses to grant credit for a first or
    second year of math must take the end-of-course
    test, regardless of grade level. These classes
    include
  • Algebra 1 Integrated Math 1
  • Geometry Integrated Math 2
  • OSPI will use math State Course Codes reported
    through CEDARS to determine which students need
    to be tested with math EOCs in spring 2011.
  • District Assessment Coordinators Be sure your
    district is reporting State Course Codes to OSPI
    through CEDARS

24
How do EOCs fit with No Child Left Behind?
  • Students enrolled in an end-of-course class in
    spring 2011 must take the end-of-course test,
    regardless of grade level.
  • OSPI and US Dept of Education are developing a
    plan for which math EOC is to be used for high
    school AYP. Scores will be banked for students
    taking EOC before the year required for high
    school AYP.
  • Students taking an EOC class in grades 7 or 8
    will need to take the EOC and (per NCLB) their
    grade-level MSP

25
What Will the Tests Look Like?
  • EOCs must assess what is common to
  • Algebra 1/Integrated Math I and to
    Geometry/Integrated Math 2
  • Performance Expectations (PEs) required for
    graduation are the overlap of algebra 1 with
    integrated math 1 and of geometry with integrated
    math 2

26
What Will the Tests Look Like? (cont.)
  • EOCs must also have subtests of standards unique
    to Algebra 1, Geometry, Integrated Math 1 and
    Integrated Math 2
  • Unique standards are the off-diagonal standards
  • Subtest strength/weakness scores will be reported
    at the student, teacher, school, district and
    state levels

27
What Will the Tests Look Like? (cont.)
  • Four EOC tests Two 1st Year math two 2nd Year
    math

FIRST-YEAR MATH TESTS
Integrated Math 1 test
Algebra 1 test
SECOND-YEAR MATH TESTS
Integrated Math II test
Geometry test
28
Can I See Which P.E.s are on Which Test?
  • Crosswalk documents are posted at
    www.k12.wa.us/Mathematics/Crosswalks.aspx

FIRST-YEAR MATH TESTS
Algebra 1 test
Integrated Math 1 test
SECOND-YEAR MATH TESTS
Integrated Math II test
Geometry test
29
Meeting Graduation Requirements with Makeup
Tests
  • OSPI is developing two makeup exams
  • EOC Makeup (Year 1), aligned to first-year PEs
    that are common to Algebra 1 and Integrated Math
    1
  • EOC Makeup (Year 2), aligned to second-year PEs
    that are common to Geometry and Integrated Math 2
  • The EOC Makeup 1 and 2 tests
  • Will be shorter than the EOCs (no pilot items,
    no off diagonal items)
  • Will be taken in a single HSPE-like setting
  • Can be used in 2011 by students who have passed
    an EOC course before the EOCs were available

30
FAQ What About Students Who Took Algebra I (or
Integrated Math I) Last Year?
  • What test(s) do they take this year?
  • Most students who took Algebra 1 (or Integrated
    Math 1) last year are probably now in Geometry
    (or Integrated Math 2).
  • This spring, they will take the appropriate EOC
    that aligns with their current course. They will
    also be scheduled to take the EOC Makeup I test
    that covers the content from Algebra 1/Integrated
    Math 1.
  • Will this cause a conflict with test schedules?
  • The EOCs and the Makeup tests will be scheduled
    to avoid conflicts for students needing to take a
    combination of tests in 2011. OSPI has developed
    several test schedules that district assessment
    coordinators can use as models.

46
FAQs Test Schedules
  • When is the testing window for EOCs?
  • Each district will set a common schedule for its
    high school(s) within the last three weeks of the
    districts school year.
  • The EOCs will be paper/pencil booklets, designed
    to be administered in intact classrooms at the
    end of the course.
  • OSPI will use student class rosters provided
    through CEDARS to pre-print booklets by
    district/school/teacher/class-period.
  • How long will the EOCs take?
  • The EOCs will be designed to take 2½ 50-minute
    class periods half a class period for
    instructions 2½ periods for the tests.

47
FAQs Test Schedules
  • Will there be an August EOC?
  • State funding limits the EOCs to two
    administrations each year. One will be in late
    May/June. To accommodate block-scheduled
    courses, the other will be in late January/Feb
    (starting in the 2011-12 school year).
  • The EOC Makeup 1 and 2 tests will be included in
    this schedule, and will be available as re-take
    opportunities.
  • When will results be available?
  • In this first year, standards (passing scores)
    need to be set. That means the spring 2011
    scores will be available in August 2011. In
    subsequent administrations, results will be
    available 6-8 weeks after testing.

48
FAQs Who Has to Pass the EOCs?
  • Who Is Included in the Class of 2013?
  • Students in the Class of 2013 are defined as
    students who first entered 9th grade in the
    2009-10 school year (this years 10th graders)
  • What Do Students in Class of 2013 Need to Pass?
  • Students must demonstrate proficiency in both the
    first and second year of high school math
  • Algebra1 EOC or Integrated Math 1 EOC or EOC
    Makeup 1
  • and
  • Geometry EOC or Integrated Math 2 EOC or EOC
    Makeup 2
  • or
  • Legislatively-approved alternatives (e.g., SAT,
    ACT, COE)

49
FAQs What About Students With IEPs?
  • How do students in special education programs
    meet math graduation and other course
    requirements?
  • For the Classes of 2013 and beyond, eligible
    students must earn either a Certificate of
    Academic Achievement (CAA) or a Certificate of
    Individual Achievement (CIA), as one of the
    requirements for earning a high school diploma.
  • To earn a CAA, an eligible student takes all
    required course work and earns a proficient score
    for math EOCs, required science (EOC), and HSPE
    in reading and writing.
  • To be eligible for a CIA, IEP teams for students
    with significant cognitive disabilities may
    determine that it is appropriate for a student to
    take the state alternate assessment using the
    WAAS-Portfolio in one or more areas of
    assessment.

50
FAQs What About Students With IEPs?
  • CIA requirements for students eligible for
    special education (continued)
  • For students who will not be assessed using the
    WAAS-Portfolio, the students must take the high
    school assessments required for AYP, either with
    or without accommodations.
  • For math, it is anticipated that the EOC for
    Algebra 1 will be approved by the US Department
    of Education as the high school exam for math.
  • If students do not meet proficiency, IEP teams
    may consider whether it is appropriate for the
    student to continue to take high school
    assessments to meet proficiency or whether,
    because of the students disability, the student
    may earn a CIA by using other measures.

51
FAQs What About Students With IEPs?
  • CIA requirements for students eligible for
    special education (continued)
  • Other measures for earning a CIA include
  • Achieving a score of Basic (Level 2) on the HSPE
    for reading and writing, the EOC exam for algebra
    I/integrated 1 (if Basic cut score for EOC is
    approved by the state board), and science
  • Taking and passing a Developmentally Appropriate
    Proficiency Exam (DAPE) at the elementary or
    middle school level, in one or more areas
  • Use of the locally determined assessment (LDA)
    options in one or more areas or
  • Use of the WAAS-Portfolio

52
FAQs What About Students With IEPs?
  • What if the high school course requirements are
    not appropriate for a student, because of
    limitations of the student as a result of his or
    her disability.
  • The state board regulation at WAC 180-51-115
    allows districts to adopt policies and develop
    procedures that would allow for special
    accommodations for individual students, exemption
    from any course or graduation requirement if the
    requirement impedes the student's progress toward
    graduation and there is a direct relationship
    between the failure to meet the requirement and
    the student's limitation.
  • Teams may also determine that it is appropriate
    for the student to attend school up to age 21.

53
FAQs What About Students With IEPs?
  • What if a the high school course requirements are
    not appropriate for a student, because of
    limitations of the student as a result of his or
    her disability (continued)
  • Districts may not waive the requirement that a
    student earn a CIA or CAA.
  • Exemptions from courses or requirements must be
    in accordance with district policies and
    procedures, and students should still be working
    towards goals appropriate for the student in
    content areas.
  • It is important to ensure that students
    transition needs are met, in addition to meeting
    graduation requirements.
