Junior High Math Updates
New STAAR Date for 8th Grade Math
TEA has provided the attached spreadsheet with resources on Project Share to support mathematics instruction. Some resources under Algebra can be used for 7th/8th grades.
The 7th grade, 8th grade, and Pre-Algebra checkpoints are 28 questions based on SEs that have been taught during the first semester. There will be 2-3 questions per readiness standard and 1 question for most of the supporting standards. The questions have not been pulled from CSCOPE questions (Note: the Pre-Algebra checkpoint is different from the 7th grade checkpoint). Algebra will be giving the same checkpoint as the high schools. The Algebra checkpoint will be 36 questions pulled from the 2014 released EOC based on SEs that were taught in the first semester. The checkpoints should be completed in two hours.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
