INFO REGARDING MATH 7 ACC PLACEMENT TEST FOR INCOMING GRADE 6 STUDENTS  CURRENT CUSD GRADE 5 STUDENTS (updated 10/8/14)
This year’s Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test will be administered in all Grade 5 classrooms on Thursday, May 7, 2015. The Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test consists of forty multiple choice questions and three “Explain Your Reasoning” questions. All test questions are directly aligned to one or more of the Grade 6 Common Core math standards; a small number of questions addressing addition and subtraction of fractions are also included. Students will have 45 minutes to answer the forty multiple choice questions, then 15 minutes to answer the three “Explain Your Reasoning” questions.
To qualify to enroll in Math 7 Accelerated in grade 6, students must score EITHER (1) 80% or higher on the multiple choice section of the test OR (2) 70% or higher on the multiple choice section of the test AND 70% or higher on the "Explain Your Reasoning" section of the test.
Students/Parents will be notified of a student's Grade 6 math course placement during middle school registration in August 2015.
All Grade 5 students who do not pass the Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test on May 7 will be placed in Math 6 to start the 201516 school year, however, during middle school during registration, a parent may sign up their child to be given a retake opportunity. All retake tests will be administered at each CUSD middle school during one predetermined date during the first week of the school. Students who pass the retake opportunity will be transferred to Math 7 Accelerated as soon as possible.
Last year's Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test is available for download by clicking:
"Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test" administered to Capistrano USD Grade 5 students in May 2014.
This year's Math 7 Accelerated Placement Test, although similar in format to last year's version, will have completely different questions aligned to the Common Core Grade 6 Math Standards, along with a few questions addressing addition and subtraction of fractions, which are taught in Grade 5.

INFO REGARDING MIDTERM AND FINAL EXAM STUDY GUIDES
A number of Capistrano USD middle school math teachers throughout many of our district’s middle schools are piloting a variety of Common Corealigned textbooks during the first semester/first two quarters of this school year. As of result, there will be no districtwide, universallyused midterms, and therefore students will need to check with their math teacher to find out what midterm study materials are appropriate for their specific math class.
The following Capistrano USD endofcourse final exam study guides for the 201314 school year were used to review for last school year's Capistrano USD endofcourse final exams, including placement testing for students new to the school district. The 201314 Algebra 1 EndofCourse Final Exam Study Guide and Geometry EndofCourse Final Exam Study Guide documents applied to middle school Algebra 1 and Geometry courses.
