3 PREFACE The Texas Examinations for Master Teachers (TExMaT) Program has its origins in legislation passed in 1999 (House Bill 2307) that required the creation of the Master Reading Teacher (MRT) Certificate, the development of standards for the certificate, and the development of a Master Reading Teacher examination. In 2001, the Texas legislature passed legislation creating two additional categories of Master Teacher Certificates, the Master Mathematics Teacher (three certificates: Early Childhood Grade 4, Grades 4 8, and Grades 8 12) and Master Technology Teacher (Early Childhood Grade 12). The Master Mathematics Teacher Certificate was created by the 77th Texas Legislature "to ensure that there are teachers with special training to work with other teachers and with students in order to improve student mathematics performance...." A Master Mathematics Teacher will be an individual who holds a Master Mathematics Teacher Certificate and whose primary duties are to teach mathematics and to serve as a mathematics teacher mentor to other teachers. A Master Mathematics Teacher Certificate may be obtained by individuals who: hold a teaching certificate, have at least three years of teaching experience, complete an SBECapproved Master Mathematics Teacher preparation program, AND pass the TExMaT Master Mathematics Teacher EC 4, 4 8, or 8 12 certification examination. The development of the educator standards for the Master Mathematics Teacher Certificates was completed in November The first SBECapproved Master Mathematics Teacher preparation programs became available during the summer of The TExMaT Master Mathematics Teacher certification examinations will be administered for the first time in the summer of This manual is designed to help examinees prepare for the new Master Mathematics Teacher 4 8 test. Its purpose is to familiarize examinees with the competencies to be tested, test item formats, and pertinent study resources. Educator preparation program staff may also find this information useful as they help examinees prepare for careers as Texas Master Teachers.

5 SECTION I THE NEW TEXMAT TESTS Successful performance on the TExMaT examination is required for the issuance of a Texas Master Teacher certificate. Each TExMaT test is a criterionreferenced examination designed to measure the knowledge and skills delineated in the corresponding TExMaT test framework. Each test framework is based on standards that were developed by Texas educators and other education stakeholders. Each TExMaT test is designed to measure the requisite knowledge and skills that an initially certified Texas Master Teacher in this field must possess. This test includes multiplechoice items (questions) as well as a case study assignment for which candidates will construct a written response. Development of the New TExMaT Tests Committees of Texas educators and interested citizens guide the development of the new TExMaT tests by participating in each stage of the test development process. These working committees are comprised of Texas educators from public and charter schools, faculty from educator preparation programs, education service center staff, representatives from professional educator organizations, content experts, and members of the business community. The committees are balanced in terms of position, affiliation, years of experience, ethnicity, gender, and geographical location. The committee membership is rotated during the development process so that numerous Texas stakeholders may be actively involved. The steps in the process to develop the TExMaT tests are described below. 1. Develop Standards. Committees are convened to recommend what an initially certified Master Teacher in this field should know and be able to do. To ensure vertical alignment of standards across the range of instructional levels, individuals with expertise in early childhood, elementary, middle, or high school education meet jointly to articulate the critical knowledge and skills for a particular content area. Participants begin their dialogue using a "clean slate" approach with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) as the focal point. Draft standards are written to incorporate the TEKS and to expand upon that content to ensure that an initially certified Master Teacher in this field possesses the appropriate level of both knowledge and skills to instruct successfully. 2. Review Standards. Committees review and revise the draft standards. The revised draft standards are then placed on the SBEC Web site for public review and comment. These comments are used to prepare a final draft of the standards that will be presented to the SBEC Board for discussion, the State Board of Education (SBOE) for review and comment, and the SBEC Board for approval. 3. Develop Test Frameworks. Committees review and revise draft test frameworks that are based on the standards. These frameworks outline the specific competencies to be measured on the new TExMaT tests. The TExMaT competencies represent the critical components of the standards that can be measured with either a paperandpencilbased or a computerbased examination, as appropriate. Draft frameworks are not finalized until after the standards are approved and the job analysis/content validation survey (see #4) is complete. TExMaT Preparation Manual Master Mathematics Teacher 4 8 1
6 4. Conduct Job Analysis/Content Validation Surveys. A representative sample of Texas educators who practice in or prepare individuals for each of the fields for which a Master Teacher certificate has been proposed are surveyed to determine the relative job importance of each competency outlined in the test framework for that content area. Frameworks are revised as needed following an analysis of the survey responses. 5. Develop and Review New Test Items. The test contractor develops draft items (multiplechoice and case study assignments) that are designed to measure the competencies described in the test framework. Committees review the newly developed test items that have been written to reflect the competencies in the new test frameworks and may accept, revise, or reject test items. Committee members scrutinize the draft items for appropriateness of content and difficulty; clarity; match to the competencies; and potential ethnic, gender, and regional bias. 6. Conduct Pilot Test of New Test Items. All of the newly developed test items that have been deemed acceptable by the item review committees are then administered to an appropriate sample of candidates for certification. 7. Review Pilot Test Data. Pilot test results are reviewed to ensure that the test items are valid, reliable, and free from bias. 8. Administer New TExMaT Tests. New TExMaT tests are constructed to reflect the competencies, and the tests are administered to candidates for certification. 9. Set Passing Standard. A Standard Setting Committee convenes to review performance data from the initial administration of each new TExMaT test and to recommend a final passing standard for that test. SBEC considers this recommendation as it establishes a passing score on the test. Taking the TExMaT Master Mathematics Teacher Test and Receiving Scores Please refer to the current TExMaT registration bulletin for information on test dates, sites, fees, registration procedures, and policies. You will be mailed a score report approximately four weeks after each test you take. The report will indicate whether you have passed the test and will include: a total test scaled score. Scaled scores are reported to allow for the comparison of scores on the same contentarea test taken on different test administration dates. The total scaled score is not the percentage of items answered correctly and is not determined by averaging the number of questions answered correctly in each domain. For all TExMaT tests, the score scale is with a scaled score of 240 as the minimum passing score. This score represents the minimum level of competency required to be a Master Teacher in this field in Texas public schools. a holistic score for your response to the case study assignment. your performance in the major content domains of the test and in the specific content competencies of the test. This information may be useful in identifying strengths and weaknesses in your content preparation and can be used for further study or for preparing to retake the test. information to help you understand the score scale and interpret your results. You will not receive a score report if you are absent or choose to cancel your score. 2 TExMaT Preparation Manual Master Mathematics Teacher 4 8
7 Additionally, unofficial score report information will be posted on the Internet on the score report mailing date of each test administration. Information about receiving unofficial scores via the Internet and other score report topics may be found on the SBEC Web site at Educator Standards Complete, approved educator standards are posted on the SBEC Web site at TExMaT Preparation Manual Master Mathematics Teacher 4 8 3

9 SECTION II USING THE TEST FRAMEWORK The Texas Examinations for Master Teachers (TExMaT) test measures the content and professional knowledge required of an initially certified Master Teacher in this field. This manual is designed to guide your preparation by helping you become familiar with the material to be covered on the test. When preparing for this test, you should focus on the competencies and descriptive statements, which delineate the content that is eligible for testing. A portion of the content is represented in the sample items that are included in this manual. These test questions represent only a sample of items. Thus, your test preparation should focus on the complete content eligible for testing, as specified in the competencies and descriptive statements. Organization of the TExMaT Test Framework The test framework is based on the educator standards for this field. The content covered by this test is organized into broad areas of content called domains. Each domain covers one or more of the educator standards for this field. Within each domain, the content is further defined by a set of competencies. Each competency is composed of two major parts: 1. the competency statement, which broadly defines what an initially certified Master Teacher in this field should know and be able to do, and 2. the descriptive statements, which describe in greater detail the knowledge and skills eligible for testing. The educator standards being assessed within each domain are listed for reference at the beginning of the test framework. These are then followed by a complete set of the framework's competencies and descriptive statements. An example of a competency and its accompanying descriptive statements is provided on the next page. TExMaT Preparation Manual Master Mathematics Teacher 4 8 5
