Interpretting new ISAT scores
Did anyone get their kids’ ISAT scores this week? Our school handed them out and there are a lot of charts to see if your child hit the Common Core Exceeds/Meets//Below/Warning levels.
There is lots of detailed information by subject on how many questions the kid got right and where, how they compare to the school, the district, and the state. And how they did on the new awesomely awesome measurement: Extended Writing.
What it does NOT seem to tell you is your child’s percentile.
I wondered if perhaps the percentile was given only for kids in the years applying to Academic Centers and High Schools (grades 5 and 7 when the test was taken) but a parent I know emailed to to say her child’s 5th grade scores didn’t have a percentile.
I checked the OAE site and don’t see anything mentioned yet about the admission rubric being revised for the Scale Scores that are given.
So I’m left wondering how to tell if your child has a decent shot at an Academic Center or even High School as the rubric previously used the percentiles.
This is the link that was referenced in the accompanying letter;
I will write to OAE to see what they see, but was curious if anybody knows anything…
