Math Assessment State Graduation Requirements

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

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)

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.

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

End-of-Course Testsin Algebra Geometry(and

the make-up exams)Spring 2011 Administration

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.

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

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

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

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

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)

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.

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).

End-of-Course Exam LogisticsSpring 2011

Administration

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)

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

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?

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
