## Rising 7th Grade Math Placement Information

****

__General Information__Rising seventh graders

**who are taking Math 6 or Math 6 Plus in sixth grade**have several math options available to them including the following:

Math 7This course is the grade-level math course. It covers one year of content. This course can be taken by seventh grade students who took Math 6 or Math 6 Plus in the previous school year. |
Math 7 PlusThis course is an accelerated math course. It includes approximately three-quarters of the seventh grade content and one-half of the eighth grade content. This course is most likely taken by students who were in Math 6 Plus the previous year but can be taken by students who excelled in Math 6 with proper supports. |
NC Math 1 (HS Credit)This course is an accelerated math course that offers the last half of the eighth grade standards along with all standards associated with the first high school credit course. This course is open to those students who have already completed Math 7 Plus. |

*Rising seventh graders*

**who are taking Math 7 Plus**as a sixth grader should plan to transition to NC Math 1. If a student wants to continue building a strong foundation prior to moving to Math I, they should talk with their counselor about appropriate options.

**Placement Criteria**To be placed in

__Math 7 Plus__, a student needs to have the following:

- EVAAS Probability of scoring a Level IV on the NC Math 1 End-of-Course (EOC) Test: 70% or higher, and
- Score of Level IV or higher on the 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 C or better in Math 6 Plus, they too qualify for Math 7 Plus.

*If a student does not have an EOG score or an EVAAS probability score, the placement in Math 7 or Math 7 Plus should be made by the school based on available data.*To be placed in

__NC Math 1 (HS Credit)__

**,**a student needs to have the following:

- EVAAS Probability of scoring a Level IV on the NC Math 1 End-of-Course (EOC) Test: 70% or higher, and
- EOG Math Score of Level IV or higher.
*Note:*A student must have completed Math 7 Plus before enrolling in this course. Students in Math 7 will not be enrolled in this course because it causes them to skip a significant amount of content.

**Additional Information**- Parents requesting a higher or lower placement can submit a waiver to their school principal.
- 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 enrolling in NC Math 1 (HS Credit) are not permitted to withdraw from the course after the 20th day of class due to state policy. They are also subject to take the End-of-Course (EOC) test that will count as 20% of the overall course grade.
- Students participating in NC Math 1 (HS Credit) in 7th grade are on track to take NC Math 2 in 8th grade. For about half of the middle schools in WCPSS, Math 2 is taught virtually through the North Carolina Virtual Public School.
