Middle School Math Placement Patterns in Berryessa Elementary School District
Primary Researchers: Neal Finkelstein
The Berryessa Union School District (CA) has historically offered numerous math courses options for 7th and 8th graders. In the interest of streamlining (and reducing) the courses offered, the district has initiated a review of how students progress through varying course sequences. The district asked REL West to assist in providing basic descriptive information about students’ enrollment in varying courses that serve as pre-Algebra for 7th graders and Algebra for 8th graders. They are interested in how their students, across a range of math proficiency, progress on standardized test scores and course grades.
