  • Introduce yourself. Introduce Performance Series:
  • Agenda T
  • “ Performance Series is an online computer adaptive assessment available in reading, math, and science. PS uses computer adaptive testing to determine an individual student’s instructional level, in a given content area. Meaning: the student will answer questions to determine his/her learning ability level, regardless of grade level.” “ Computer Adaptive”- i.e., GRE, GMAT A chosen way to assess students Two separate assessments (in the two subject areas) Math assesses all NCTM strands (Algebra, Number and Ops, Geometry, Measurement and Data Analysis and Prob); Reading assesses Vocab and comprehension (fiction, non-fiction and long passage

    3. 3. What is Performance Series? • New students in grades K-10 are required to take placement tests before curriculum may be shipped. For k-1st grade, we have a paper test to email to the family. They will need to know to print the test in color and scan, fax or mail the results to us for review. • The Performance Series placement test should be taken by students in 2nd –10th grade. The results of this test are used for initial placement of the student. • Students are required to take the placement test again at the end of the first semester and at the end of the year to measure growth.. 3Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation.

    5. 5. Preparing Students for taking the Placement Test Testing Script (Parents, please read this script to your student) Today you will take a [subject] test. This test helps me and your advisors at Bridgeway Academy understand what you have learned so far and how they can help you learn more. Today’s test is a little like a paper and pencil test, where you read from a test booklet and fill in bubbles. And it’s a little like using a web page, because it’s on a computer. This test is different than other tests you’ve taken. If you get a question wrong, it will give you an easier one next. If you get a question right, it will give you a harder one next. This helps the test figure out exactly how much you know about [subject]. Do you have any questions about this? [pause] If you need help in any way, you can ask me during the test. Are you comfortable? Can you use your mouse? Can you see your computer screen clearly? [Pause] Select español in the bottom right-hand corner if you want to see the test instructions in Spanish. The questions are all multiple-choice. Be sure to pick the best answer. To pick an answer, click on the letter you want (like filling a bubble, but with the mouse) or anywhere on the answer itself. You can also type the letter you want on the keyboard. 5Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. best and answer It’s very important to do your All rights reserved. all items carefully.

    24. 24. Understanding the Performance Series Profile Report • Scaled Score • The Scaled Score is comparable to an “educational yardstick.” The score ranges from 1300- 3700. As a student “grows” throughout the year and over years, this is the score to look to monitor longitudinal progress. • The scale stays the same throughout the program so that a student’s growth and progress can be tracked over an extended period of time 24Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. All rights reserved.
    25. 25. 25Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. All rights reserved.
    26. 26. The Unit Score • Advisors use the USR as an indicator to determine a particular unit in which a student has a displayed a strength or weakness (e.g., Reading – Vocabulary). TO use the score for this purpose the USR must not numerically overlap with the other unit-based scores, meaning the score range is entirely higher or lower than the numerical value of the other unit-based scores. To further illustrate the point of advisors determining a student’s strength or weakness area, refer to the steps below: 26Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. All rights reserved.
    27. 27. Identify the upper and lower bound of a USR that appears to be lower or higher than other USRS. For example: The Vocabulary USR = (2100-2300- 2500) and appears to be lower than one or more of the other USRs (indicating a potential area of weakness) 27Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. All rights reserved.
    28. 28. • If trying to determine an area of weakness, compare the upper bound of the lowers/lower USR to the lower bounds of the other USRs. The upper bound of the USR in the unit of weakness must fall below and NOT equal the lower bound of all other USRs. – For Example: Compare the upper bound of Vocabulary (2500) to the lower bounds of Long Passage (3040), Fiction (2990), and Nonfiction (2590). (2500) is entirely below the lower bounds of the other USRs with no numerical overlap,. Therefore, this student has a statistically significant area of weakness in Vocabulary. • If trying to determine an area of strength, compare the lower bound of the highest/higher USR to the upper bounds of the other USRs. The lower bound of the USR is the unit of strength must be above and not equal to the upper bound of all other URSs. – NOTE: If the unit-based scores all numerically overlap, the student does not have a statistically significant strength or weakness in any unit. 28Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation. All rights reserved.
    29. 29. Determining Instructional Next Steps • Academic Advisor use the USR scores in combination with the unit-based Suggested Learning Objectives and the overall Scaled Score to determine instructional next steps. If a student demonstrates a strength or weakness in a particular unit, the advisor can strategically select Unit Study guides to send to the student to complete. The advisor will also review the student curriculum selection and make adjustments as necessary to strengthen the student in areas of weakness. 29Copyright © 2008 Scantron Corporation.
