ASSESSMENT
INFORMATION
TASSP June 2007
QUANTILES
 Reported on Confidential Student Reports for TAKS
mathematics
 Linked to a student’s mathematics score on TAKS
and is one indicator of his or her mathematical ability
 Based on a study using 2006 TAKS data to link
TAKS with the Quantile Framework
 An educational tool that helps schools and parents
evaluate and monitor students’ mathematical
achievement
TASSP June 2007
QUANTILES
 Do not translate specifically to a grade level
 Span the curriculum from kindergarten through
grade 12, ranging from 0Q to above 1400Q
 Help track student’s growth in mathematics
over time, no matter what grade he or she is in
 More information at www.Quantiles.com
TASSP June 2007
Student Success Initiative (SSI)
 The goal of the SSI is to ensure that all students receive the
instruction and support they need to be academically successful in
mathematics and reading.
 A student must be given three opportunities to pass the required
assessments.
 If after three opportunities a student is not successful, the student
is automatically retained.
 A student’s parents may appeal the automatic retention.
 The Grade Placement Committee (GPC) only by unanimous
decision may promote a student to the next grade level.
TASSP June 2007
Student Success Initiative (SSI)
 In spring 2008, 8th graders will be subject to all SSI
requirements for both reading and mathematics.
 The GPC Manual is being revised for 2007-2008 to
include information regarding grade 8.
 The 2007-2008 GPC Manual will be posted to our
website and shipped to districts in
August/September 2007.
 The GPC Manual contains sample forms and
letters, flowcharts, and FAQs.
TASSP June 2007
Student Success Initiative (SSI)
 The first administration of the TAKS grade 5 and
grade 8 mathematics tests is in early April 2008.
 The second administration of the TAKS grade 5
and grade 8 mathematics tests is in mid May 2008.
 The third administration of the TAKS grade 5 and
grade 8 mathematics tests is in early July 2008.
