Math Assessment State Graduation Requirements
5
Math Graduation Requirement Classes of 2011
and 2012 (current rules)
  • Students can meet the math assessment requirement
    with one of the following ways
  • Previously passed either the HS WASL or HSPE Math
    tests
  • Earn two credits of math after 10th grade
  • Must increase math proficiency
  • Courses must meet/exceed 9th and 10th grade math
    standards
  • Pass an EOC or EOC Makeup 1 or 2
  • Important Results not available until August
  • Pass a HSPE-like Comprehensive exam (not yet
    funded)
  • Utilize CAA-Options
  • SAT, ACT, AP
  • GPA Comparison

Option not available for the Class of 2013 and
beyond
6
Math Graduation Requirement Classes of 2013
and Beyond (current rules)
  • Pass Algebra End-of-Course (or Algebra Make-Up)
  • AND
  • Pass Geometry End-of-Course (or Geometry Make-Up)
  • Other Alternatives
  • Pass a CAA-Option in Math
  • SAT / ACT / AP (cut scores wont be set until
    2011-12)
  • Math COE (details still to be worked out)
  • GPA comparison
  • Passing a HSPE-like Comprehensive exam for
    Class of 2013 and 2014 (This option has not been
    funded)

7
Superintendent Dorn Working with Legislature on
Math Options
  • Superintendent Randy Dorn will be in discussion
    with key legislators to consider various options,
    including consideration of
  • Allowing students in the classes of 2013 and 2014
    to meet the math graduation requirement by
    passing one EOC or one EOC Makeup
  • Delaying the science graduation requirement by at
    least two years, possibly until 2017
  • Evaluating ways to deliver math and science
    Collections of Evidence that support this
    alternative and that are cost-effective

Any changes to requirements has to be approved
through the legislature and the governor. You
are bound to hear a variety of stories as this
legislative process unfolds. We must work under
the assumption that no changes will be made. You
will be notified of any approved changes.
8
Quick Check . . .
  • I/We understand the math assessment graduation
    requirements for both the classes of 2011 2012
    as well as 2013 and beyond.
  • Use Green Check for Yes
  • Use Red X for No
  • If no, please use the chat feature to ask your
    question.

End-of-Course Testsin Algebra Geometry(and
the make-up exams)Spring 2011 Administration
11
State End-of-Course (EOC)Tests Required
Participants
  • Algebra (or Integrated 1)
  • All students enrolled in Algebra or Applied
    Algebra regardless of grade level (based on
    spring enrollment)
  • Geometry (or Integrated 2)
  • All students enrolled in Geometry or Applied
    Geometry regardless of grade level (based on
    spring enrollment).
  • Note For Junior High, this is in addition to
    the state MSP math tests for 7th or 8th grade.

12
What Will the EOC Tests Look Like?Graduation
Requirement
  • Performance Expectations (PEs) required for
    graduation are the overlap of algebra 1 with
    integrated math 1 and of geometry with integrated
    math II

13
What Will the EOC Tests Look Like?Subtests
  • 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

14
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
15
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
16
What Will the Make-Up Tests Look Like?
  • Yr 1 Only PEs common to Alg 1 and Int 1
  • Yr 2 Only PEs common to Geo and Int 2
  • Will be shorter than the EOCs (plus no pilot
    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

Make-Up Yr 1 (Algebra)
Make-Up Yr 2 (Geometry)
17
State Make-Up Exams Participants
  • REQUIRED PARTICIPANTS
  • 10th grade Students enrolled in courses higher
    than Geometry need it for graduation
    requirements school needs them to participate
    for AYP.
  • 10th grade students lower than Algebra (required
    to take state test for AYP)
  • This includes SPED Resource Room students (not
    PORT students)
  • Will take Algebra Make-Up
  • STRONGLY ENCOURAGED / EXPECTED
  • 11-12th grade students can use to meet math
    requirement
  • Junior High Students who have already taken
    Algebra and Geometry can bank scores for high
    school graduation requirement.

18
State Make-Up Tests (Algebra Geometry) BSD
Initial Recommendations
  • Junior High Geometry students should wait until
    Advanced Algebra to take the Yr 1 Make-Up
    (Algebra).
  • This allows Geometry classes to focus exclusively
    on Geometry PEs and students to focus exclusively
    on the Geometry EOC.
  • Current Advanced Algebra Students should take the
    Yr 1 Make-Up (Algebra) and Yr 2 Make-Up
    (Geometry) (unless requirement changes to just
    one test)
  • 10th grade lower than Algebra (including resource
    room, but not PORTFOLIO students) will take the
    Yr 1Make-Up test (Algebra).

19
Quick Check . . .

21
End-of-Course Exam LogisticsSpring 2011
Administration
22
End-of-Course Exam Logistics
  • Must be given within the districts last 3 weeks
    of school test schedules set by district
    assessment coordinatorAn advisory committee is
    being assembled (HS admin, JH admin, and teacher
    reps) to create schedule. A first draft will be
    shared mid November for feedback. A final draft
    will be public by December.
  • Students absent from test date will not be
    allowed to take the test this spring (wait until
    next year).
  • Like MSP/HSPE
  • One single pre-id booklet per exam (algebra 1,
    integrated I, geometry, integrated II, EOC Makeup
    1, EOC Makeup 2)

23
End-of-Course / Make-Ups Logistics
  • When is the testing window for EOCs?
  • Each district will set a common schedule for its
    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?
  • Designed to be taken in 2.5 50-minute periods
    (with the first half-period as the directions)
  • Un-timed test
  • How long will the Make-Ups take?
  • The Make-Ups will be approximately 2 hours
    (untimed)
  • Scheduled on days after the EOC

24
EOC Make-Up Logistics Continued . .
  • 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 (mostly
    likely late August). In subsequent
    administrations, results will be available 6-8
    weeks after testing.

What about kids who need more time? (especially
6th period kids)
What about the students who dont need to test?
Does that create too long of tests?
27
What about Re-takes?
  • There will no longer be High School State Math
    Testing in August (there will still be reading
    and writing).
  • After this spring, the EOCs and Make-Ups will be
    offered twice per year
  • January testing (starting in 2012) for make-ups
    and block scheduled schools
  • June testing (starting this June) for year long
    EOC courses and make-ups.

High School MathematicsCredits Requirements
for Class of 2013and Beyond
35
Class of 2013 Math Graduation CREDIT
Requirements
  • The three mathematics credits required under this
    section must include the following mathematics
    courses
  • Algebra 1 or Applied Algebra
  • Geometry or Applied Geometry
  • Adv. Algebra
  • OR a third mathematics credit chosen 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.
  • Bethel School District is currently examining
    which CTE courses will count for this. These
    recommendations will be presented for approval
    from the CRT.

36
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 advanced algebra 2/integrated
    mathematics III

37
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
    2/Integrated III, 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. 

38
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 1, and a second credit in
    geometry/integrated math II, 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.

39
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • What courses may students take for the third math
    credit?
  • Students may take algebra 2, integrated math III,
    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 math II.
    Traditional math examples may include, but are
    not limited to statistics, discrete math, linear
    algebra and mathematical modeling.

40
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.

41
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.

42
FAQs Mathematics Credits
  • Can a support class in conjunction with algebra
    work for the third credit? (I.e. Math Lab)
  • No. The support class may count as an elective
    credit, but it cannot satisfy the third credit of
    math.
  • Can students take algebra 1 for two periods and
    count it as the first and third credit of math?
  • No. The student can take Algebra and Geometry
    the same time. 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

43
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 II), 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 II classes.
