I found one online for the old version in excel, but does anyone know of one for the new system, where you can enter raw scores on each section and it will give you the weighted scale score?

It's useless until they publish the cut score.

Yes, there isn't one yet for this "new" process.

I know we don't have the cut score yet, but most things I've read say it's expected to be close to, if not the same, as the previous version. I was just going to play around with the numbers and possibilities! Im a nerd! Lol

I've also heard that the new cut score will LIKELY be in the ballpark of the old one - no guarantee. But go ahead and use the old calculator and see how it comes out - just in case!

I don't think the available calculator weights the components properly. C1=40% of total (but the SR is weighted more heavily than the CR), C2-4 is 60% but C2 and C4 are 15% of that 60% and C3 is 30% of the 60%.

Ugh, so confusing!

I'll just wait til NYE.

STI and CRI equal
Old 06-16-2017, 08:21 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #8

The SRI are 20% and the three combined CRI are also 20%. However, each individual CRI is only receives a score which is 1/3 of the 20%. As I understand in order to pass you must score the minimum floor score on the SRI and each individual CRI (1.75) but also meet the undetermined average score. I think that's right.

Oh well, going to try to enjoy the summer for a while now!! It's such a relief to just finish! 4 components in one year was the toughest thing I've ever done in my entire life!!

So, ZY...even though you successfully finished all 4 in one year (CONGRATS BTW!), would you recommend that timeline to others? Or do you wish you'd taken 2 years? Maybe it depends on the outcome? Just curious. As a CSP, it's hard to advise when candidates ask about the timeline.

I wouldn't recommend it, UNLESS you really begin preparing in the summer of the year before understanding the requirements, brainstorming lessons, reading standards over and over, and immediately beginning C4 because it was the Component that killed me. I felt like it was the most confusing and ambiguous as far as the questions in the written commentary. My student need and professional need were not the same but closely related, and I found several questions that seemed similar! Oh and ALL those forms!! Unfortunately, I got really sick for a few months on and off early in the school year. I found it was my gallbladder and was better when I had it removed. So it delayed the time I actually started. I had only recorded lessons the first half of the year. I initially only planned to do C2 and C3, but added them all in January! It is not easy by any means to do them all, but I would highly suggest to anyone else who decides to be sure to start C4 early and make sure to plan and gather data throughout the year. I would advise to set strict goals for yourself based on a timeline to spread it out. If you break them up, I suggest C2 and C3 the first year, then C4 and C1.

I've had that gall bladder thing myself - had mine removed before the laser surgery was in place and had a lengthy recovery, fortunately during the summer. YUK!

My thinking is in line with your suggestions...THANKS for sharing!

Calculator

I've used the following calculator to see and tweak numbers. I included the percentages for each component.
C 1 - 3 CR each about 7% = 0.0667, 0.0667, 0.0666 (must equal 1 to calculate total)
C 1 - SR is 20% = .20
C 2 - 15% = .15
C 3 - 30% = .30
C 4 - 15% = .15

I think...that that doesn't calculate it properly. C3 isn't 30% of the total; it is 30% of the 60%.

C1 is 40% of the total score.
C2-4 is 60% of the total score.
Within that 60%, C2 & C4 are 30% (15% each) and C3 is 30%.

It's all too complicated for this little pea brain...until all the new scoring info/cut score comes out. Then I'll know what to do.

The percentages are correct. C3 is 30% of the whole.

I've seen that pie chart, but have heard it is inaccurate because it doesn't take into account the weighted scores within the 2 sections. Who knows?! I guess we will find out NYE.

Here is the link to a score calculator that was posted several weeks ago- I finally found it, again!!

Don't know who created it nor if its accurate or not. But heck, it's fun to do some hypotheticals and provide scores by which to pray specifically.

I can access a score calculator in my NBPTS portfolio page. It properly weights everything -- we just have no idea what the cut-off is. But I was able to access it through my regular portfolio log-in, if I scrolled to past years.

(Maybe this calculator is only available on the portfolio page if you already have scores returned? I don't know.)
