  • Testing and Accountability Update: Legislation, School GradesJuly, 2013Dr. Karen SchaferDirector, Office of Accountability and Testing

  • Impact of HB 1076The bill establishes new standard high school diploma requirements for students entering 9th grade in the 2013-14 school year and thereafter, alters testing requirements for previous cohorts of high school students, and establishes Scholar and Merit diploma designations.

    *

  • Bills passed in Florida in 2006 and 2010 significantly increased the math and science credits and testing requirements for high school graduation. Requirements were the same for all students seeking a regular diploma.Course & EOC Requirements: What Was*

  • Merit Diploma DesignationIn addition to the requirements for a standard diploma, a student pursuing a Merit designation must attain one or more industry certifications from a state-approved list.*

  • Scholar Diploma DesignationAdditional requirements to earn a Scholar designation:*

    SubjectScholar Diploma RequirementEnglishPass the 11th grade ELA common core assessment, effective when the state transitions to common core assessmentsMathematicsEarn 1 credit in Algebra II and 1 credit in Statistics or an equally rigorous course. When the state transitions to common core assessments, students must pass the Algebra II common core assessment.

    SciencePass the Biology I EOC assessment and earn 1 credit in Chemistry or Physics and 1 credit in an equally rigorous course.Social StudiesPass the U.S. History EOC assessment.

    Foreign LanguageEarn 2 credits in the same foreign language.

    OtherEarn at least 1 credit in an AP, IB, AICE, or a dual enrollment course.

  • Summary of Graduation ChangesStudents who took Biology or Geometry prior to the 2013-14 school year will no longer be required to pass the Biology I and Geometry EOC assessments to earn course credit. Beginning with students in gr. 9 in 2013-14, the Biology and Geometry EOCs count 30 % of a students final course grade. No student is required to earn a credit in Algebra II and Chemistry or Physics to earn a standard high school diploma. High school students may earn a Scholar diploma designation if they satisfy course and testing requirements above-and-beyond those required for a standard diploma, e.g., earn credits in Algebra II and Chemistry or Physics and an equally rigorous science course and pass the Biology I and U.S. History EOC assessments. Students pursuing a Merit designation must attain one or more industry certifications. *

  • Summary of Assessment RequirementsChanges to math and science credit and testing requirements for a standard HS diploma:

    The award of high school course credit in Algebra I, Biology I, and Geometry will no longer be tied to passing EOC assessments. This applies to all 2012-13 and future high school students, including students who have already taken the assessments. Student must pass the Alg I EOC to meet the graduation requirement, not to earn credit*

  • Summary of Assessment RequirementsNo student, including 2012-13 9th graders, will be required to pass the Biology I and Geometry EOC assessments in order to earn a standard diploma. Passage of the Biology I EOC assessment is only required if a student pursues the Scholar designation.

    No student, including 2012-13 9th graders, will be required to earn a math credit in Algebra II or science credits in Chemistry or Physics to earn a standard diploma, just for the Scholar designation. *

  • SB 1076 Impact on Middle Grades*

  • SB 1076 Impact on Middle GradesFCAT Remediation for middle grades (6-8)

    Reading: Level 1 OR Level 2Must enroll in remedial course or a content area course in which remediation strategies are incorporated into course Repeals remediation exemption for middle grade students (6-8) who scored Level 1 or 2 who scored L3 or better in previous 3 years

    Math: Level 1 or Level 2Student must receive remediation which may be integrated into the students required math courses.Bill does not specifically address remediation for Level 1,2 Algebra EOC BUT passing the EOC is a graduation requirement

    *

  • SB 1076 Impact on High SchoolsFCAT Remediation for high school students

    Reading: Level 1 OR Level 2 on 9th or 10th grade FCATMust be enrolled in and complete intensive remedial course or be placed in content area course that includes remediation of deficit skillsLegislation no longer includes remediation exemption for HS students who scored Level 1 or 2 who scored L3 or better in previous 3 years beginning with 2013-14 cohort

    Math: Level 1 or Level 2 on Algebra 1 EOCMust be enrolled in and complete intensive remedial course or be placed in content area course that includes remediation of deficit skills*

  • Impact of SB 1076 on Prior CohortsEven though legislation did not take effect until July 1, 2013, many of its changes impact students in cohorts who are yet to graduate.Eliminates Geometry and Biology EOCs as graduation requirements or to earn creditEliminates courses that were listed as graduation requirements (Algebra II, Physics)Changes graduation requirements

  • Prior Cohorts and Scholar DesignationGenerally speaking, students who entered high school before the 2013-14 school year may pursue a Scholar designation. However, a students ability to pursue the designation may depend on whether the EOC assessment for a course was implemented at the time the student took the course. Because statewide administration of the Biology I and U.S. History EOC assessments began in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 school years, respectively, students who took these courses before implementation of the EOC assessments would have to take and pass the assessments to earn the designation. Nothing prevents a school board from allowing these students to sit for future administrations of these assessments solely for the purpose of qualifying for the scholar designation or, regarding students who took the Biology I EOC assessment in the 2011-12 or 2012-13 school years, retroactively applying the passing score on the assessment to the students score to determine qualification for the designation.House of Representatives Final Bill AnalysisMay 6, 2013*
