NATIONAL PR – National percentile ranks indicate the relative standing of a student in comparison with other students in the same grade who took the test. Percentile ranks range from a low of 1 to a high of 99 with 50 denoting average performance for the grade.
GRADE EQUIVALENT – A Grade Equivalent is a score that represents the average performance of students tested in a given month of the school year. The grade equivalent scale ranges from K.0 (beginning Kindergarten) to 12.9 (12th grade – 9th month) with scores above 12.9 designated as PHS (post high school). This number indicates that our students scored as well as students who are at that particular grade level.
