The NWEA test is intended to be a predictor for the state MAP testing that we administer in the spring. Here are some of my findings when poring over the data:
- Students chose to make Math the first of the three tests students took.
- Every single student saw improvement on the math test! Fifteen students met or exceeded their projected growth. Our most significant improvement was an 18-point increase!
- The median growth percentile for our class was sixty-nine.
- Seven are predicted to score proficient (or advanced) on the MAP test. The rest are very near the line and could be proficient with continuing improvement.
- Students took the Language test next.
- Our success is apparently minimal in this area, with five students slipping a few points from their fall scores (same as last year) and one maintaining a flat score (same as last year). One student, however, increased the language score by an incredible 21 points!
- Only seven students grew at a higher rate than the national average in language. Since we began the year with a larger deficit in math, that is where most of the focus has been in our class, so this may account for the lower numbers here. The percentage predicted to be successful is already higher than the other two areas.
- The MAP test combines Reading and Language, but the language sections, the NWEA predicts twelve students will be proficient (or advanced). Unfortunately, one student remains below the standards, but many fall in the middle and are within striking range.
- We saved the reading test for last.
- While three students' scores decreased slightly, all others improved. Eleven exceeded their expected growth. The student with the largest growth made an 18-point jump!
- Ten increased at a high rate than the national average.
- Our median growth percentile stands at sixty.
- Again, the MAP test will combine Reading and Language, but for the reading portion, the NWEA predicts ten Hoggatteers will be proficient (or advanced). All others are in striking range, as well.
