Placement Protocol Ninth Grade PlacementFor the 2018-19 School Year
Note: This placement protocol uses the available predictive data from seventh and eighth grade that has historically provided the best correlation to later success in mathematics. The placement process is based on the understanding that the Mathematics Course 1 through Course 3 sequence will put students on a college and career pathway and will offer them later avenues to such advanced courses as calculus.
Eighth grade students will need to have the following for initial placement into Math Course 2:
a) A seventh grade Math Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment of Standards Exceeded
b) An eighth grade Math Smarter Balanced Summative Assessment of Standards Exceeded
A third locally decided metric is used if the student is "in the bubble"
All other students will be placed in Mathematics Course 1 in ninth grade.
