Grade Equivelancy

Grade equivalent scores represent the grade level of a student's demonstrated ability based upon the number and difficulty of questions answered correctly. Grade equivalent scores are given as a decimal with the grade level year preceding the decimal point and month into that grade following the decimal point. For example, a grade equivalency score of 8.2 means that the student tested at 8th grade and two months into the 8th grade. In the graphs below, the red line indicates the tested grade level of the student and the bars represent testing results above or below that grade level.

Percentile Ranking

Percentile scores are equivalent to the percentage of students from the tested norm group who received scores lower than the student. For example, a student with a percentile score of 73 means that the student did better than 73% of the students in the tested norm group. Percentile scores do not represent the percentage of questions answered correctly. Percentiles are useful for comparing a student's performance to the performance of other students of the same grade level.

In the pie charts below, the blue area represents the percentage of students in the norm group that the tested student perform better than. The portion of the pie chart in black, represents the percentage of the students in the norm group that performed better than the tested student.

In the line graph below, percentile results are represented by the blue lines.

Stanine

The term stanine is derived from the STAndard score from a NINE-unit scale. Stanines are simply a rating from 1 to 9 indicating a student's performance on that section of the test. In the graphs below, color is used to reflect the ranking of the student's scores, using red to indicate low scores, changing to yellow for average scores, and finally to green for the highest scores.

The following table lists the meaning of each score:

9) Highest Level

8) High Level

7) Well Above Average

6) Slightly Above Average

5) Average

4) Slightly Below Average

3) Well Below Average

2) Low Level

1) Lowest Level

Raw Scores

Raw scores are the actual number of questions answered correctly within a given section of the test and given in the format *X*/*Y* where *X* is the number of questions answered correctly and *Y* is the total number of questions in that section of the test. For example, a raw score of 72/80 means that 72 questions were answered correctly out of 80 questions. Raw scores are typically not used for any type of comparison or statistical calculation since each test section varies in difficulty and number of questions asked.

In the graphs below, the number of questions answered correctly are represented by the blue lines and the number of questions either not answered or answered incorrectly are represented by the black lines.
