How To Understand Performance

Your child’s scores include performance scores for each subject area. Here are the performance levels and what they mean:

Level III: Accomplished

Students exhibit the ability to use higher-level thinking and more complex skills, which includes making inferences, comparisons, and solving multi-step problems.

Level II: Satisfactory

Students exhibit the ability to determine relationships, integrate multiple pieces of information, extend details, identify concepts, and match concepts that are similar.

Level I: Developing

Students are able to acknowledge concepts, but they demonstrate a minimal or inconsistent understanding of the knowledge and skills that are linked to content measured in this grade or course.
