State Testing Scores Released
I thought that I would post a quick reminder that in the very near future, the test results reports for your students from last year will be coming home with your students.  Please remember that the state moved the cut scores way up this year so the scores for the state and for our district all fell by about half from where they have traditionally been.  In a laymen's example, the state moved the score for an "A" from a 90% to a 93% which causes the bottom scores for a passing grade to move from say a 60% to a 70% which is very significant.  Our district did fall from where we were last year and where we have been traditionally, but in terms of how we compared to the state averages, we actually went up in almost every subject area.  I am saying all of this to you because many of your students may have scored advanced in years past and this year they may have scored significantly lower.  These scores do not reflect any bad change in their abilities or the school's performance but simply a change in the scoring mechanism for the state.  If you have questions about your child's report, please feel free to contact their school office.  The following links from the state department of education will help further explain this situation.
