HISD Research and Accountability_______________________________________________________________1
June 8, 2012TO: Board MembersFROM: Terry B. Grier, Ed.D.Superintendent of SchoolsCONTACT: Carla Stevens, (713) 556-6700SUBJECT:
The spring 2012 End-of-Course (EOC) results have arrived. In 2007, Senate Bill 1031 wasenacted, which called for the development of “end-of-course assessment instruments forsecondary-level courses in Algebra I, Algebra II, geometry, biology, chemistry, physics, EnglishI, English II, English III, world geography, world history and United States history.” The purposeof the end-of-course assessments is to measure students’ academic performance in core highschool courses and to become part of the graduation requirements beginning with the freshmanclass of 2011–2012. In addition, a student’s score on each EOC assessment will be worth 15%of the student’s final grade for that course, beginning in 2012–2013.Current results reflect the scaled scores recently set by the Texas Educational Agency foralgebra I, geometry, algebra II, biology, chemistry, physics, world geography, world history, U.S.history, and English I, II, and III – reading and writing. Comparisons cannot be made between2011 and 2012 EOC data because the performance standards were not set until spring 2012.Also, only students who started high school in 2011–2012 or later are included in the resultspresented here as these are the students required to pass the exams for graduation. Studentsin grades 10, 11, and 12 were tested for field testing purposes only; therefore, their results arenot included in this memo.

each EOC assessment. Note that the percentage at minimum is a subset of unsatisfactory andthat the percentage at advanced is a subset of satisfactory. Also, the state is phasing in thesatisfactory standards over the next five years. The data presented here are at the phase 1standard.
For math, Algebra I had the lowest percentages of students meeting the satisfactorystandard and advanced standard with 79% and 14%, respectively, among 11,041 testtakers. Algebra II had the highest percentages of meeting the satisfactory standard andadvanced standard with 97% and 80%, respectively, among 86 test takers. For this firstyear, the upper level courses reflect only advanced students who are taking coursesabove their grade level.
For science, biology had the highest percentages of students meeting the satisfactorystandard and advanced standard with 84% and 8%, respectively, among 10,259 testtakers. Among 7 test takers for chemistry, no one met the satisfactory standard.
For social studies, world geography had the highest percentages of students meetingthe satisfactory standard and advanced standard with 73% and 10%, respectively,among 10,880 test takers. Among 181 test takers for world history, 55% met thesatisfactory standard, and 1% met the advanced standard.
For English I, reading had the highest percentage of students meeting the satisfactorystandard with 59% among 11,505 test takers. Writing had a satisfactory rate of 47% andadvanced at 3% among 11,515 test takers.
Of the courses taken traditionally by ninth grade students, English I writing had thelowest satisfactory rate at 47% and Biology had the highest rate at 84% at the currentphase in standards.
Figures 1-8
show the percent of students who scored at the satisfactory level (includingadvanced) on each EOC assessment by secondary campus. Within these figures, Apolloschools are separated and the district percent of students who scored satisfactory is alsoindicated.
Appendix A
provides the number of students tested for each subject, for eachsecondary campus.It is important to note that English language learners (ELL) needing linguistic accommodationsare aggregated into the English language arts results as there is no separate test for them inthis subject area. However, the results from the STAAR-L exams for ELLs in the math, science,and social studies courses along with the STAAR-M and STAAR-Alt for special educationstudents will be provided later this summer in a more detailed report showing student groupperformance and performance of students on different STAAR test versions.
