  3. Understanding & Interpreting Test Results
  4. Monday, 16 December 2019
I'm curious ... are you tired of hearing the phrase "multiple measures?" I am. I want to know how educators should combine results from two or three different assessments to reach a better conclusion about a student's mastery of algebra basics? What if NWEA's math results look strong and the CAASPP/SBAC results look weak? Should you combine them at all? Or toss out the test that's least revealing of student growth? Or perhaps factor in teacher-assigned grades?

Shouldn't results with the least imprecision and the closest fit to what students have been taught prevail? Let me know what you think.
