RE: SLO post test question

NYSED requires that the math Regents exam be used as the summative assessment on the SLO used for growth (GUIDANCE ON THE NEW YORK STATE DISTRICTWIDE GROWTH GOALSETTING PROCESS: STUDENT LEARNING OBJECTIVES, Revised March 2012 (with changes from enactment of Chapter 21 of the Laws of 2012), p.3). This document is available on engageny.org.
For teachers where there is no Stateprovided measure of student growth, "comparable measures" are the Statedetermined Districtwide growth goalsetting process. Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) are the Statedetermined process. For any grade/subject that culminates in a State assessment, Districts must use the Statedetermined growth goalsetting process (SLOs)
You may also use a previous NYSED mathematics assessment as the pretest to differentiate the target for each student on the roster i.e. use the Grade 8 NYSED assessment as the pretest for Algebra 1. A differentiated target might be Grade 8 Level Algebra 1 minimum score target Integrated Algebra minimum score target Level 1 basic 55 Level 2 below proficient 65 Level 3 proficient 75 Level 4 above proficient 85 You may want to try this out using grade eight data from 2011 and Integrated Algebra data from 2012 to see what percent of students met the targets.
You might use the same system for the local measure but only include students who performed as Level 1 or Level 2 on the grade eight assessment (p.21).

Please feel free to reply off list to this question.......
To those of you teaching a math course with a Regents exam, what are you giving as a pretest and posttest for your APPR and SLO?
I'm trying to compile the info to hopefully find ways to streamline the process and reduce the stress on we teachers and lessen the amount of testing we inflict on the kids.
Thanks in advance!
