**Rising 6th Grade Math Placement Information**

General InformationGeneral Information

Rising sixth graders

**currently taking 5th Grade Math**have several math options available to them including the following:

Math 6This course is the grade-level math course. It covers one year of content. |
Math 6 PlusThis course is an accelerated math course that offers roughly 1.3 years of content in one school year. It includes all sixth grade math standards and roughly one-third of the seventh grade math standards. |
Compacted Math 6 Plus / 7 PlusThis course is a highly accelerated math course that offers roughly 2.5 years of content in one school year. It includes all sixth grade math standards, all of the seventh grade math standards, and roughly one-half of the eighth grade math standards. |

*Rising sixth graders who are currently taking*

**Math 6 Plus**will take Math 7 Plus next. In cases where students did not pass the course and/or the End-of Grade (EOG) test, this placement should be considered carefully by the school and the parent collaboratively.

**Placement Criteria**To be placed in

__Math 6 Plus__, a student needs to have the following:

- EVAAS Probability of scoring a Level IV on the NC Math I End-of-Course (EOC) Test: 70% or higher, and
- Score of Level IV or higher on their current year Math EOG
*Note*: Because the EVAAS score provides a probability based on past testing history, we know that this may not account for a student who has shown great growth within the last year of learning. Therefore, if a student scored a Level IV or higher on their most recent EOG and has an overall grade of "4" in standards based grading for fifth grade, they too qualify for Math 6 Plus.

To be placed in

__Compacted Math 6 Plus / 7 Plus__, a student needs to have the following:

- EVAAS Probability: 97% or higher, and
- Score of Level V on the current year Math EOG

**If a student does not have an EOG score or an EVAAS probability score, the placement should be made by the school based on available data.**

**Additional Information**- Parents requesting a higher or lower placement can submit a waiver to their school principal. Rising sixth graders should submit this to their current elementary school principal for review.
- Placement will be reviewed again once end-of-year data (EOG grades for the current year, classmarks for the current year) are available.
- Skipping of content is not permitted except through the Single Subject Acceleration (SSA) process. A waiver may not be submitted to skip content.
- Students who participated in Math 6 Plus as fifth graders and successfully completed the course will be placed in Math 7 Plus unless a waiver is completed.
