About the New Mexico Standards Based Assessment: There are two purposes for the New Mexico Standards Based Assessments:

1. To determine the level at which New Mexico students achieve the New Mexico Content Standards. Each assessment is designed to measure the state content standards as delineated in the Assessment Frameworks; the SBA provides an accurate picture of student achievement of the New Mexico Content Standards.

2. To measure the progress of students over time. In the past, measures of student progress were restricted to comparing one year’s class with another year’s class. With the development of vertical scales for reading, writing, mathematics, and science, the progress of each student and group of students can be examined each year in the tested content areas.

Structure of the New Mexico Standards Based Assessments

The SBAs are paper-and-pencil assessments that are aligned to the New Mexico Content Standards, Benchmarks, and Performance Standards. The assessments consist of multiple sections for eachcontent area. Per the following table, all areas except Writing have three sessions and Writing has two sessions. Test items are multiple choice (MC) and constructed response (CR). For CR items students write out their responses as opposed to filling in a bubble next to an answer choice as happens with MC items. The ratio of CR items to MC items is 70 percent MC and 30 percent CR, but because of the greater number of potential points for CR items, the point ratio for any given content area’s test is about 50 percent of points from MC items and 50 percent of points from CR items.

For the Reading, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies assessments, CR items may require either short answer responses (SA) or open-ended responses (OE). Students can earn up to two points for SA responses and up to four points for OE responses. CR items are scored according to previously established rubrics. Although there are generic rubric templates for the SA and OE items, please be aware that for actual scoring, they are customized for each specific item. These generic rubrics can be found in the Assessment and Evaluation web page. The item specific rubrics cannot be published because to do so would compromise item security.

Open Quote Even though it is a juvenile prison, through my own experience attending High School while i was there, I can say that all of the teachers and staff at the facility are unbelievably motivating. This school strongly encourages each student to plan a future and complete High School and as for students who are over the age of 17 or 18 and have no High School Credits, they are offered to take a GED test. After passing the GED test you are giving a formal and deserving Graduation and most important a Diploma.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
