You can find out the mean scaled score foe ELA in district 2. You can also find that number for your child's middle school. If you take the number of students tested and the % who got a four you will also be able to see exactly how many students in your child's school/grade who have a 4. These might give you some insight [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] so upset. dd always scores double 4s in state tests. now in 7th grade when it counts for high school admissions, she gets a mid 3 on ELA!!! (luckily a mid 4 on math). how bad is this??? i am not sure she will test into the school she wants which is a specialized and otherwise we are looking at the same high performing manhattan schools everyone else is -- like ELRO. 25 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
