SBAC Student Report Information

The SBAC student score report is new to all of us, so I wanted to provide some help in learning what information it contains.

This is a quick introduction, and I will add more information as time goes on. If you have any questions, please send me an email at cperantoni@wrvschool.org. You can also get an annotated student report from the state here: http://vt.portal.airast.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/VT_ISR_Guide.pdf. The state’s document is longer and provides much more detail.

If you want to know more about why students are tested using the SBAC, here is a letter from Rebecca Holcombe, Vermont's Secretary of Education. 


 

A Quick Introduction

Here is an image of a score report with some key sections highlighted. Explanations follow.

Here’s what they represent, top to bottom and left to right.

Box 1: Which test this is about. You will get separate reports for Mathematics and English/Language Arts.

Box 2: A legend to help you understand the “claim” information at the very bottom of the page.

Box 3: Your child’s name.

Box 4 (left-center of the page): Your child’s “scale score.” This is a number that can fall anywhere between 2000 and 3000.

Box 5 (shaded in green): This describes the overall level of your child’s achievement.

Box 6: This box lets you compare your child’s achievement against statewide, OESU-wide and school-wide averages.

Box 7 (lower left): These are the “claims,” the detailed areas that are tested by the SBAC.

Box 8: The symbols and description give you detail about how your child achieved in each of the claims. The symbols are described in box 2 (top right).
