You NEED Your Child to Get Post Secondary
Education!!!!
  • We need to explain clearly that the jobs of
    tomorrow demand post-secondary training.
  • 80 of jobs by 2020 will demand some form of post
    secondary college.
  • A college degree means a million dollars over the
    course of a lifetime in income.

Economic Realities
7
Assessment in Texas Is Changing
  • The 15 grading issue will impact grades in a
    negative way.
  • Many kids will be retesting and that is okay
    given the changing nature of instruction.
  • Parents must understand that we are going to
    assess your kids and not just test them.

What tests will students have to take?

The high school level STAAR tests are COURSE
tests, NOT grade level tests
9
STAAR is an assessment of ACADEMIC READINESS
10
What does it mean to be an assessment of
academic readiness?
11
Rigor Is Not A Disease
  • Many people associate rigor with more work.
  • The bottom line is classrooms will expect more
    this year and schools are going to need parental
    support throughout this process.
  • Expect that teachers demand rigorous, challenging
    work from your child.

12
What does rigor mean?
STAAR will be significantly more rigorous than
TAKS
13
What does more rigorous mean?
  • The questions are more complex and require more
    thinking.
  • What is most important for a student to learn in
    a grade level will have more questions on the
    test.
  • The test will be longer.
  • But it will have a 4 hour time limit

mathematics. PLTW develops motivated,
well-rounded students by instilling confidence,
stressing the importance of self-discovery,
encouraging innovative problem solving and
critical thinking, teaching team building, and
rewarding creativity.
  • Students will develop skills essential for
    achievement in the classroom and success in
    college and at work.
  • Not to mention
  • PLTW students achieve significantly higher scores
    in reading, mathematics, and science.
  • PLTW graduates earn higher GPAs as college
    freshmen.
  • PLTW graduates are 5 to 10 times more likely to
    study engineering and technology.

28
Calculating Cumulative Score
  • Lets say the student retakes the Geometry EOC at
    the next retest opportunity after receiving these
    results
  • Lets say a scale score of 2100 is passing
  • For math
  • Algebra 1 2100
  • Geometry 2000
  • Algebra 2 2100
  • Cumulative Score 2066
  • For math
  • Algebra 1 2100
  • Geometry 2150
  • Algebra 2 2100
  • Cumulative Score 2116

29
But that might not be enough
  • Lets take the same cumulative score after the
    student passed the Geometry retest
  • If the Recommended High School Graduation Plan
    requires a cumulative score of 2150
  • For math
  • Algebra 1 2100
  • Geometry 2150
  • Algebra 2 2100
  • Cumulative Score 2116
  • For math
  • Algebra 1 2100
  • Geometry 2150
  • Algebra 2 2200
  • Cumulative Score 2150
