Olde Providence ES
2012-2013 End-of-Year Assessment Results
November 2013
The Common Core Sets a High Bar for the Skills Students
Need to Be College and Career Ready
• In 2010, NC joined other states in adopting the Common Core State Standards
(CCSS), which define what students need to know and be able to do at each grade
level to graduate ready for college and careers.
• Beginning in 2012-13, North Carolina public school students are now required
to meet a higher standard of proficiency on their End-of-Grade (EOG) and End-ofCourse (EOC) tests.
• The new CCSS are a good thing—they are more challenging and focus on how
students can apply the information they learn rather than simply memorizing
the information.
• The demands of the assessments and the scores required to reach proficiency
are now at a higher level.

New State Test Questions Are More Rigorous
2009 through 2012
2013
5th Grade Example
MATH
Which of the
3 following amounts is
closest to 4 of a dollar?
A $0.30
B $0.40
C $0.70
D $0.90
On this year’s
math tests,
students had to
solve more
problems that
included multiple
steps and could
not be answered
using one simple
calculation.
Two-thirds of the students in a class are
wearing blue jeans. Two-sixths of the
students who are wearing blue jeans are
also wearing red shirts. What fraction of
the students in the class are wearing blue
jeans and red shirts?
(Students cannot use a calculator to
answer this question.)

New State Test Questions Are More Rigorous
2009 through 2012
5th Grade Example
After reading a three-page-long story entitled
“Roberto and the Soccer Game,” students were
asked the following: In the selection, what can be
inferred about how the people in the crowd viewed
the old man?
READING
After reading a half-page short story
entitled, “King Lion and the Beetle,”
students were asked the following:
What caused King Lion to fall?
A the mirror
B the mud
C the ditch
D his jewelry
2013
This year’s reading
tests included texts
that were on gradelevel and had more
rigorous vocabulary
words.
A The crowd did not know that the old man was
the owner of the soccer team, so they pushed
him down.
B The crowd was upset that the gate was late
opening, so they pushed the old man down.
C The crowd was upset that the tickers were sold
out, so they pushed the old man down.
D The crowd did not want the old man to get
tickets before them, so they pushed the old man
down.

What Happens When Tests Change
• Frequently, when state tests change, scores drop dramatically. In
the past, North Carolina has experienced decreases in proficiency
levels when new standards have been set.
• Decreases in proficiency do not mean that students are learning
less or that educators are not teaching well.
• North Carolina is not alone in this transition. New York, Kentucky,
Tennessee, and Florida recently administered Common Core –
aligned assessments and each state experienced substantial drops
in proficiency. Many other states across the country will report
similar results this year and next, reflecting the adoption of more
rigorous standards.

Comparing 2011-12 and 2012-13 test results
IS NOT an “apples to apples” comparison
• Old standards v. New standards
• Traditional state assessments v. New common core assessments
• Lower cut scores v. higher cut scores
• Retests v. no retests
• The tests from the 2011-12 school year and the 2012-13 school are
dramatically different.

What Does This Mean?
•The Bar is higher for passing the test
•The test is more rigorous
•The curriculum standards are more rigorous
•Tests from 2012-13 provide a baseline for
moving forward
•OP will rise to the challenge to meet the goals.
•We have adjusted our School Improvement Plan Goals for reading
to address improvement

The Work Ahead
• We have work to do
• The bar has been raised and we will rise to it
• We are looking at “how do we do things differently”
• Maximizing Core Instruction Time
• Resources funneled into Core Instruction
• Third Grade Reading and 4th Grade Reading are prioritized
•OP is successful with kids and that same commitment to our
children for learning is present.
16
This is an example
of how we used to
teach.
17
To prepare
people to be
workers in
the
industrial
age.
18
But today,
teachers are
tasked with
making
students
college and
career ready,
to prepare
them for a
work force that
may not exist
yet. The ability
to
communicate,
think critically
and collaborate
are key skills
for students to
learn.
19
At OP
Hand in
Hand,
We
Build
the
Future
20
We need you to
join us!
We have a lot of work to do today to prepare our students for the future. Your
monetary gift to the PTA – Invest for Success campaign supports our teachers in
getting the tools they need to help our students be successful. Please donate to
the IFS Campaign.
