District Testing Information

Credit by Exam

Credit by Examination—If a Student Has Taken the Course/Subject (Grades 6–12) A student who has previously taken a course or subject but did not receive credit or a final grade for it may, in circumstances determined by the principal or attendance committee, be permitted to earn credit or a final grade by passing an examination approved by the district’s board of trustees on the essential knowledge and skills defined for that course or subject. Examples of prior instruction include incomplete coursework due to a failed course or excessive absences, homeschooling, or coursework by a student transferring from a nonaccredited school. The opportunity to earn credit by examination after the student has had prior instruction is sometimes referred to as “credit recovery.” If the student is granted approval to take an examination for this purpose, the student must score at least 70 on the examination to receive credit for the course or subject. The attendance review committee may also offer a student with excessive absences an opportunity to earn credit for a course by passing an examination. [See the school counselor and policy EHDB(LOCAL) for more information.]

Credit by Examination for Advancement/Acceleration—If a Student Has Not Taken the Course/Subject A student will be permitted to earn credit by examination for an academic course or subject area for which the student had no prior instruction for advancement or to accelerate to the next grade level.

TELPAS

TELPAS assesses the English language proficiency of K–12 ELs in four language domains—listening, speaking, reading, and writing. English language proficiency assessments in grades K–12 are federally required to evaluate ELs' progress in becoming proficient in the use of academic English. The assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 differ in the following ways:

  • grades K–1: TELPAS includes holistically rated listening, speaking, reading, and writing assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions.
  • grades 2–12: TELPAS includes multiple-choice reading tests, holistically rated student writing collections, and online listening and speaking assessments.

Local District Assessment –  NWEA Maps

NWEA

Brock ISD will administer the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress Growth, or MAP Growth, assessments this school year as part of a comprehensive assessment system. NWEA MAP Growth is a nationally normed, standardized achievement test that measures what learners know and informs what they're ready to learn next by using a computer adaptive test that adjusts to the ability and knowledge of the learner. Your child's educator will use the results of the NWEA MAP Growth assessments to better understand your child's individual needs and to help him/her progress in the assessed area. 

Brock ISD students in grades Kindergarten through 11th take the NWEA MAP Growth assessment in reading and writing. Kindergarten through 9th take the assessment in math.  Students will test three times a year, at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year. This assessment is not for a grade however, it is important that students try their best. Your child's educator will use the results of the NWEA MAP Growth assessments to better understand your child's individual needs and to help him/her progress in the assessed area.  Because the assessment is a growth measure, it can track the growth of the learner between testing events and over multiple years of testing. 

Please watch the videos in the link to learn more about NWEA MAP and prepare you and your students for this assessment.
