1. Math Testing Night What to know and How to prepare!

2. What is the North Carolina Testing Program? • Each year, our 3rd graders take the state EOG test. This test is multiple choice and has three parts: • Reading • Math – Calculator Active • Math – Calculator Inactive

3. How Are EOG Results Interpreted? • Ranked by achievement levels: level 4 being the highest, level 1 being the lowest. Most of these tests have no 'pass/fail;' they are intended to gather information about the skill levels of students as a whole, and for teachers and parents to evaluate how individual students are performing. • However, students in grades three, five and eight are required to score at achievement level 3 in order to be promoted to the next grade, unless the principal determines the child will be promoted based on other factors.

4. Test Make-up • Mathematics • This section addresses: • Number Sense, Concepts, and Operations • Measurement • Geometry and Spatial Sense • Algebraic Thinking • Data Analysis and Probability

5. EOG Math Standards

6. Achievement Level I: Students performing at Achievement Level I show minimal conceptual understanding and computational accuracy and often respond with inappropriate answers or procedures. They rarely use problem-solving strategies. Achievement Level II: Students performing at Achievement Level II typically show some evidence of conceptual understanding and computational accuracy and sometimes respond with appropriate answers or procedures. They demonstrate limited use of problem-solving strategies. Achievement Level III: Students performing at this level consistently demonstrate mastery of grade level subject matter and skills and are well prepared for the next grade level. Students performing at Achievement Level III generally show conceptual understanding, compute accurately, and respond with appropriate answers or procedures. They use a variety of problem-solving strategies. Achievement Level IV: Students performing at this level consistently perform in a superior manner clearly beyond that required to be proficient at grade level work. Students performing at Achievement Level IV commonly show a high level of conceptual understanding, compute accurately, and respond consistently with appropriate answers or procedures. They demonstrate flexibility by using a variety of problem-solving strategies.

7. How is the testing data used? Used to determine student proficiency. • What is being done to help ensure my child’s success on state testing and • throughout the year? -Monitored student progress throughout the year through classroom assessments, benchmarks, and teacher evaluations. - Monitored attendance and involvement - Remediation and Enrichment (Intervention) • What if my child does not reach a Level III or IV? In-school Intervention ( Retest Summer School Session Possible Retest • What if my child attends summer school but does not pass the retest at the • end of the session? Administration, teachers and parents conference • What if my child does not pass the retest? • What if I do/do not want my child retained? Important that students participate in all provided interventions and retests: Deciding factors: -Attendance-Homework-Student participation
