Sometime in May we will be having our End of Course CGA Post Test. It’s a biggie, and it’s worth up to 4,000 XP.
You will gain XP in two ways:
- Growth – How much have you grown as a student? For all of you, I’m looking for at least 30% points in growth over your baseline CGA scores from back in August.
- Mastery – Can you prove that you are a master of the content? The state recognizes a 70% as mastery of a subject… earn at least a 70% on the End of Course CGA to get 2,000 XP.
Here’s a rubric for your experience points:
| Quarter Credit
| No Credit
|Growth – show at least 30 points in gains.||Growth – show 20-29 points in gains.||Growth – show 10-19 points in gains.||Growth – show 0-9 points in gains.|
|Mastery – score at least a 70%.||Mastery – score a 60-69%.||Mastery – score a 50-59%.||Mastery – score a 0-49%.|
Here’s your baseline scores so that you can see what you made originally, and what you need to score in Growth and Mastery to gain all 4,000 XP. Your names have been replaced with a code number. The code is your class period followed by your clicker number.
Here’s an overview of the standards that will be on the End of Course CGA, as well as the number of questions associated with each one. Notice that plate tectonics, Punnett Squares and light/heat questions are hit pretty hard!
