US History *Students must take and pass the Algebra 1 EOC Assessment in order to satisfy their graduation requirements.

When new performance standards are determined for the Florida Standards Algebra 1 EOC Assessment, a new passing score will be established. Senate Bill 1076 Weekly Briefing ID #: 16664 Florida Senate Bill 1076 requires that students enrolled in specified courses take the EOC assessments for the course and the results constitute 30 percent of the students final grade.

All students enrolled in an eligible EOC course for the first time will have the 30 percent included in the final course grade computation in the spring administration of each school year. o Final course grades for students who do not test or students whose test is invalidated will be reported as No Grade For any students who currently have an (NG).

above This student demonstrated a satisfactory level of achievement on the content focus of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level. Limited Progress This student demonstrated a limited level of achievement on the content focus of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive targeted interventions and remediation in the areas of concern, and continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level.

Insufficient Progress This student demonstrated an insufficient level of achievement on the content focus of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards assessed during this instructional period. To attain high levels of achievement in this content area, the student must receive intensive interventions and remediation in the areas of concern, and continued instruction on the challenging content and skills across the benchmarks designated for this grade level.

Caveon will analyze data to identify highly unusual test results for two primary groups: Students with extremely similar test responses; and Schools with improbable levels of similarity, gains and/or erasures.

Flagging only the most extreme results. Caveon Similarity Index Most Powerful & Credible Statistic Measures degree of similarity between two or more test instances Analyze each test instance against all other test instances in the school Possible causes of extremely high similarity: Answer Copying Test Coaching

Proxy Test Taking Collusion A Comparison Index=0.25; Scores=303 & 309 2 0 0 5 10 15 No Match

20 25 Item Number Same Correct 30 35 40 45 40 45 Same Incorrect

Index=15.7; Scores=303 & 309 2 0 0 5 10 15 No Match 20 25

30 35 Item Number Same Correct Same Incorrect Caveon Erasure Analyses Based on estimated answer changing rates from: Wrong-to-Right Anything-to-Wrong Find answer sheets with unusual WtR answers Extreme statistical outliers could involve tampering, panic cheating, etc.

Important! No studentlevel score invalidations based on erasure analysis; erasure analysis limited to schoollevel flagging for additional review.
