1 Interpretive Guide Guide Interpretive 2015 KANSAS ASSESSMENT PROGRAM SCORE REPORTS

2 Understanding THE 2015 STUDENT TEST SCORE REPORT This year marks the first time Kansas students were assessed in English language arts and mathematics using the new Kansas College and Career Ready Academic Assessment. Developed by the Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation at the University of Kansas, it fully aligns to the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards. Kansas Assessment Program tests also align to Kansas content standards, which help educators and policymakers evaluate student learning and meet federal and state accountability requirements. TEST TEST TEST PURPOSE COMPONENTS FORMAT These student scores can be used to: Understand your child s test results level as defined by the state of Kansas in English language arts and mathematics Compare your child s performance to other students in the school, district, and state Help identify your child s relative strengths and limitations For 2015, all students in grades 3-8 and grade 10 took untimed computerized assessments in English language arts and mathematics. The ELA assessment contained reading and writing sections, including a multidisciplinary performance task that required students to read, take notes, and then write a response. Grades 4 and 7 also took a science assessment, and grades 6-8 participated in a required field test for history, social studies, and government. Unlike previous assessments, this computerized test employs technologyenhanced items that require students to do more than pick the right answer from a list. For example, students were required to order items, create categories, label areas, plot graphs, and select multiple responses. Also different from last year is the use of scaled scores based on analysis of a large number of scores for the same test using expert committee-based decisions and mathematical formulas. With scaled scores, it doesn t matter what version of an assessment a student took because the scores would be similar. To obtain a scale score, the total number of score points attained by a student on a test is converted to a scale score, which looks different but still means the same. For instance, the fraction ¼ means the same when converted to the decimal.25. Kansas weighted scaled scores range from 220, the lowest, to 380, the highest score. Scaled scores create a measurement that isn t attached to one type of test. That makes it easier to identify a student s performance level as well as strengths and weaknesses across tested subjects. While scale scores allow consistent reporting and score comparison, they do so only within a grade and content area.

4 STUDENT TEST SCORE REPORT Student name, identification number, and test year are here. 2 This area provides grade level, content area assessed, school, and district The arrow points to the student s score. Note the thicker line that divides standards-achieved levels (3, 4) from those that have not (1, 2). The four regions differ in size because score ranges for performance levels (maximum score possible for the performance level minus minimum score possible for the performance level) are not equal Additional graphs show how this student compares to other students in the school, district, and state. A small percentage of students also may have the notification exited (student was not enrolled in the reporting school at year end), incomplete (student did not complete all sections of assessment), or data not shown to protect student privacy (total number of students by grade and content area was too small to report fairly and accurately). 5 The score range possible within each achievement level was determined by more than 150 Kansas educators who gathered in the 2015 summer to recommend cut scores, which categorize students based on their state assessment performance last spring. Differing for each grade and content area, the four performance levels are Level 1, a student is below grade level; Level 2, a student is at grade level, but not on track for college or career readiness; Level 3, a student is at grade level and on track for college or career readiness; and Level 4, a student exceeds grade-level expectations and is on track for college or the workplace. At the 2015 September State Board of Education meeting, members approved these cut scores and four performance levels. 6 Skills listed indicate capabilities for the student s achievement level within the content level. Detailed information about Kansas standards can be found at the Kansas Assessment Program website at

5 STUDENT TEST SCORE REPORT 7 The Kansas Assessment Program builds on Kansas standards by focusing on broader skills and strategies rather than separate skills. This underlying framework organizes Kansas standards into claims, which are broad statements about student mastery of standards ( evidence ). CLAIMS TARGETS STANDARDS EVIDENCE At the state level, the mean claim score for each claim was set to 110, and variance in scores determined the spread of scale scores. In 2015, the lowest and highest scores possible are 104 and 116, respectively, so the range of scores is very narrow. In general, subscores are highly correlated to each other and to the total score. 8 Claim scores are based on different numbers of test items. Generally, claim scores with more items will have smaller standard error of measurement. Claim score ranges differ from the overall test score If the number of items for a claim is too small, that claim can t be reliably reported on its own. So it may be combined with other claims and will contribute to the total score in a content area. 10 Included on the Kansas State Department of Education website are academic content standards and contact information. The Kansas Assessment Program website offers practice tests, news items, and a Frequently Asked Questions section. Students are allowed as much time as they need to take the assessments.
