The revised content standards for Math I were adopted by the NC State Board of Education in June 2016.
The previous math specification document included information about the end-of-grade (EOG) grades 3-8 math assessments and the end-of-course (EOC) Math I assessment. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) produced two specification documents to replace it.
1- 2016–17 End-of-Course Assessment of NC Math 1―North Carolina Assessment Specifications (November 1, 2016): This document reflects the changes to the EOC assessment due to the content standard revisions. Please share this document with your schools.
2- End-of-Grade Grades 3-8 Math Assessments―North Carolina Assessment Specifications (Revised November 1, 2016): First and foremost there have been no changes to the EOG grades 3-8 assessments. The Math I EOC information was removed from the document and additional information about EOG math assessments was included. The last page of this document (page 12) includes a history of the revisions.
- November 1, 2016: All EOC information was removed and placed in a separate document (i.e., 2016–17 End-of-Course Assessment of NC Math 1―North Carolina Assessment Specifications).
- Because the document was being revised the NCDPI took the opportunity to add some information. All of the added information is available in various administrative or policy documents with one exception. The table provided on page 4 provides information about the number of embedded field test items per grade level.
