  • There is an impact on the student’s graduation program requirements. This is very different from the TAKS tests. NISD students are typically enrolled in the Recommended Graduation Program because that is required by the state colleges.But, look at the bullets. Read the bullets. Remind the audience that Level II is not the minimum score and this could remove the student from the Recommended Program and move the student to the Minimum Program.
