SUBJECT:

Grades 3-8 Testing Program Update

DATE:

January 28, 2010

STRATEGIC GOAL:

Goal 1







2010 - 2011 Testing Program

For the 2011 Testing Program, there will be three additional changes to the
Testing Program: based upon a four year research study, the Department will
design and implement a vertical scale; to ensure that the exams have
appropriate depth and breadth, there will be an increase of approximately
11-15 multiple-choice items for the English exams and 15 multiple-choice
items for math exams (both subjects will have open-ended items); and the
Department will secure the multiple-choice section of the exams and release
a limited number of items after their administration. The increase in items
will allow the Department to test more performance indicators and enable the
program to utilize a vertical scale to help strengthen analysis of student,
school, and district performance. A vertical scale allows student progress
to be tracked from grade-to-grade to determine the amount of growth each
student made in a school year.
