PHYSICAL SCIENCE/BIOLOGY
•
•
•
•
•
For the freshmen class beginning in 2015-2016, the end of course exam for
graduation will change from physical science to biology
There will be no biology test available this year. The first test available for biology
will be next fall for block scheduled students.
Students taking physical science this year for high school credit will take the
physical science PBA and EOY assessments. When these students are sophomores
and they take biology, they will take the biology PBA and EOY assessments. This
year’s freshmen (Class of 2018) are the only group that may have to take two
science tests to go toward their graduation requirement depending on their course
sequence – NOTE: after this group takes the two courses and assessments, they
can choose which one they actually want to go toward the “points”.
If a student is currently in 9th grade and is enrolled in a biology course, they will
NOT take a physical science test this year, nor will they take the biology test next
year. The will be grandfathered in with a score to be determined.
Current 8th grade students taking physical science for HS credit will take the PBA
and EOY this year for physical science and then will take the PBA and EOY for
biology when they take that course in HS. However, only the biology test will
count toward graduation

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
• OGT will continue to be in effect for this year’s
sophomores, juniors, seniors.
– Double testing for many of these kids
• What about “freshmores” or “academic redshirt freshmen”?
– They fall under sophomore classification
• OGT will continue to be given to those that
don’t reach the minimum score.
WHO DOES IT AFFECT?
• End of Course (EOC) / End of Year (EOY) exams
go into effect with this year’s freshmen class
(class of 2018).
• However…. ANY student taking American
History and/or American Government this
year is required to take those exams
GRADUATION POINTS
• As one of the three pathways to a diploma, students can
accumulate their scores from end-of-course exams. The higher a
student scores on any end-of-course exam, the more graduation
points he or she earns:
•
•
•
•
•
§ Advanced Level = 5 points
§ Accelerated Level = 4 points
§ Proficient Level = 3 points
§ Basic Level = 2 points
§ Limited Level = 1 point
• If a student reaches 18 graduation points overall, he or she
becomes eligible for a diploma.
• Of these overall points, a student must earn at least four points
between the math exams, four points between the English exams,
and six points between the science and social studies exams.
SUBSTITUTE EXAMS
• Students in certain courses can take a substitute exam, such as an
Advanced Placement (AP) exam, instead of the state’s end-ofcourse exam. The State Board-approved AP exams may be
substitute tests for the following courses:
• Physical Science:
• § AP Physics 1: Algebra-Based
• § AP Physics 2: Algebra-Based
• American History:
• § AP United States History
• American Government:
• § AP United States Government and Policy
RETAKING EXAMS
•
A student who scores below Proficient on any end-of-course exam may retake the exam after
receiving extra help from the school. A student scoring Proficient or higher can retake an exam only
if he or she has taken all seven end-of-course exams and still is below the minimum point
requirements. Any student who automatically earned three graduation points from a course can
retake the exam for a higher score.
•
•
Highest score counts
The highest score a student gets on a test will count. For example, if a student retakes an end-ofcourse exam, or if he or she takes the college admissions test before or after it is offered by the
state, the student’s highest recorded score will count.
•
•
Transfer students
Districts will scale down the graduation points requirements for students who arrive at a school
with credit for some, but not all, tested courses. However, these students still must earn at least
five points between the English II and either the Geometry or Integrated Math II exams.
Students who transfer having taken all of the tested courses will take only the college admissions
test (see below for more information on this test). If the student does not reach the score needed
for graduation, the student must take the English II and Integrated Math II exams and earn five
points between them.
•
MAJOR STEPS FORWARD
•
•
Phase-in exemption and automatic points
If a student earned high school credit for a tested course before July 1, 2014, the
student automatically earns three graduation points. Students who earn credit for
a first semester block course in American history, American government or physical
science before January 31, 2015, will also automatically earn three graduation
points. If a student receives automatic points, he or she does not have to take the
exam, unless that student chooses to take it. The exemption for block schedule
students is part of a rule that will be finalized in December 2014.
•
Industry credentials
The State Board approved the criteria for the industry credentials a student may
use to help qualify for a diploma.
All credentials must be tied to jobs that are in-demand, either statewide or locally.
A student can use any credential for graduation that appears on the list during the
student’s junior year, even if that credential comes off the list during the senior
year. A student may always use new credentials added to the list after his or her
junior year. The department will release the first approved credentials list in
December 2014.
•
FUTURE WORK
• State Board of Education
– College admission test
– Job skills test
– Substitute exams
• ODE and Districts
– Linkage Process for selected subjects will begin
this spring.
WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT ALTERNATE
ASSESSMENT?
• 9TH grade students identified as eligible for AASCD
do not test in 9th grade.
• Upon entry into 10th grade, the student will take
the suite of AASCD HS tests in ELA, Math, Science,
and Social Studies.
• There is no separate AASCD for each end-ofcourse test.
• A proficient score in each assessed content area
may be used in lieu of the required minimum
score on the 7 EOC tests for the grad
requirement.
