Features of the Score Report
Scale Score

A student’s raw score is converted to a developmental scale score. This score is used to compare the student’s end-of-grade scores from one year to the next.

Achievement Levels

There are four achievement levels in relation to the scale score. The levels range from Level I through Level IV. Levels III and IV are indicators of mastery of skills for that grade. These are predetermined performance standards that allow for comparison of performance to grade level expectations.

Percentile Rank

The percentile compares the student’s performance to all other North Carolina students who took the test in the “norming year”. This rank shows that the student performed at a level equal to or better than the stated percent of students. The higher the percentile, the better a student performed in relation to other students in that grade.

The reading comprehension report list the reading categories which show the types of items on the reading test. The math report list the math goals from the four mathematics strands.

Note that the report does not show how many problems the student missed in each area, only the number of problems that are included on the test for that category or strand. This makes planning for future instruction difficult.

• Cognition- initial strategies a reader uses to understand the selection. Refers to the purpose and organization of the selection. Includes the application of context clues to determine meaning, summarizing, and identifying the purpose of text features.
• Interpretation- requires the reader to develop a more complete understanding of the text. It may ask students to clarify, explain the significance, extend, and adapt ideas.
• Critical Stance- refers to questions that ask the reader to look at the selection objectively. This requires the reader to apply processes like comparing/contrasting and understanding the impact of literary elements.
• Connections- refers to connecting knowledge from selection to other information and experiences. Requires the reader to relate the selection to events outside the story.
