12 EOC assessments STAAR Modified Performance Labels Will be significantly more rigorous than TAKS; greater emphasis on alignment to college and career readiness Will measure student performance and academic growth Grade 3-8 STAAR tests in Reading and Math will be linked (from grade to grade) to performance expectations for English II STAAR and Algebra II STAAR The STAAR will continue to assess the statewide content standards, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). The STAAR is designed to prepare students to succeed in college and careers and to compete globally.

High School - STAAR


Graduation Requirements Min. Grad. Plan - The cumulative score is based on the number of courses taken for which an EOC exsist. - The cumulative score requirement may vary by subject area - IPC can be one of the science credits for the minimum plan..there is no EOC assessment Graduation Requirements Recommended Graduation Plan - Student must meet cumulative score (CS) requirement in each of the four content areas AND - must meet Satisfactory Performance (SP) on ELA III and Algebra I Graduation Requirements Distinguished Achievement Plan -Student must meet cumulative score (CS) requirement AND -Student must meet Satisfactory Performance (SP College Readiness component of ELA III and Algebra II

Levels
There will be two cut scores that will identify three performance categories: Level III Advanced Academic Performance Level II Satisfactory Academic Performance Level I Unsatisfactory Academic Performance For the alternate assessment the performance labels are: Level III Accomplished Academic Performance Level II Satisfactory Academic Performance Level I Unsatisfactory Academic Performance Algebra II, chemistry, and physics will not be assessed STAAR Modified.

What do levels mean?


Level I-Minimum score is unsatisfacory. Level II-Minimum score is satisfactory for 2012-2013. Each year it will phase in to a higher standard.

STAAR Key Concepts and Terminology


Fewer, clearer, deeper Fewer standards being tested more deeply Emphasis on applying new learning in multiple ways rather than teaching breadth of information Reporting categories (new terminology) what we now call test objectives Assessed curriculum (assessed curriculum)-TEKS student expectations (SEs) to be assessed on STAAR

Media literacy and technology are embedded into the core subject standards.

Comparison of Readiness and Supporting Standards


Readiness Standards are essential for success in the current grade or course are important for preparedness for the next grade or course support college and career readiness necessitate in-depth instruction address significant content and concepts Supporting Standards introduced in the current grade or course but may be emphasized in a subsequent year reinforced in the current grade or course but may be emphasized in a previous year play a role in preparing students for the next grade or course but not a central role address more narrowly defined content and concepts
General Characteristics

Comparison of Readiness and Supporting Standards cont.


For Reading, Writing, and Eng. Lang. For Reading, Writing, and Eng. Lang. Arts Arts: may apply to other reading genres Subject-specific characteristics focus on specific reading genres (fiction (poetry, drama, literary nonfiction, and and expository) and on writing for persuasive) particular purposes For Mathematics: For Mathematics: focus on skills that underlie more emphasize the integration and significant math concepts application of math skills For Science For Science: focus on content that supports emphasize the integration and fundamental scientific principles application of major scientific concepts For Social Studies For Social Studies: focus on discrete historical facts, events emphasize landmark historical events or individual people, as well as more and foundational geographic concepts detail-oriented geographical facts and emphasize unifying historical and concepts geographical themes

Cumulative Scores
# of STAAR EOCs taken by the student in that subject area

Applicable Level IIsatisfactory performance standard in that subject area

A students cumulative score is determined using his/her highest score on each STAAR EOC

Lets Pretendcont.
A student scores a) 1100 on Algebra I b) 1000 on Geometry c) 800 on Algebra II The students cumulative score is 2900 and does not equal the 3000 cumulative requirement 800 does not meet the minimum score requirement of 900 and therefore cannot be used towards the cumulative score

Did you know


Scores on high school STAAR assessments will count as 15% of a students grade in a course. If a student takes STAAR M in Bio and Geom that they are not responsible for Chem or ALG II. # of STAAR EOCs taken by the student in that subject area applicable level-satisfactory performance standard in that subject area. If a student attempts and does not pass a regular STAAR and the ARD committee proposes STAAR M for the next year, the student does not have to retest for the STAAR.

AYP: Transition Plan


Considerations for AYP in 2012 and beyond In 2012, STAAR Modified Assessments will -Fulfill student test requirements for AYP -Be used for standard setting -Late report (Fall) to districts after summer standard setting

What does this mean?


STAAR M students will graduate with a minimum plan STAAR student does not acquire the accumulative score as determined by the state, the student will graduate on minimum plan.
