2012-2013 Application for Free/Reduced Meals:
The Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC) has been working diligently with the CSCOPE technology provider to provide public access to CSCOPE lessons. The CSCOPE site will include a new feature that allows parents and members of the general public to access CSCOPE lessons without having to enter a username and password. CSCOPE lessons accessible to the public will be the same lessons provided to districts for the 2013-14 school year, with the exception of material that may be used for grading or student assessment, such as answer keys and any information related to Performance Indicators. The new public access feature is scheduled for launch in early April, 2013.
Lessons available for public viewing will be dynamically linked to the actual CSCOPE lessons in the site provided to districts. As noted earlier, material that may be used for grading or student assessment will not be available for public viewing. Below is a list of lesson content not available for public viewing:
Performance Indicators. There will be a generic statement inserted in the public site anywhere a Performance Indicator is listed that states:
Performance Indicators are authentic learning tasks or projects that provide evidence of student learning. Therefore, these tasks or projects may be used for grading purposes. Please consult your child’s teacher to understand how Performance Indicators may be used in this lesson."
Attachments serving as answer keys or part of Performance Indicators. There will be a generic statement in the Attachments section of the public site that states: "All attachments associated with this lesson are referenced in the body of the lesson. Due to considerations for grading or student assessment, attachments that are connected with Performance Indicators or serve as answer keys are available in the district site and are not accessible on the public website."
