District Projection Summary

Interpreting the Data

The student projections found in the EVAAS restricted website are the same calculations provided as in previous years and are based only on student information from the 2018-19 school year and earlier. The projections are based on each student's testing history from 2019 and earlier as well as the average schooling experience from 2019. These projections do not use achievement data from the 2019-20 school year.

For example, if a student in fourth grade took an ELA assessment in 2018-19, then they received a student projection in fall 2019 for fifth and sixth grade. Since there was no assessment in spring 2020, the student's sixth-grade projection would remain the same in fall 2020. These projections, when combined with information and resources available locally, might assist educators with planning for students' academic success.

This report summarizes students' probabilities of success on future assessments. Combined with other data, this report is useful as an indicator for comprehensive planning, intervention and enrichment planning, and resource allocation.

It's important to consider the relative size of each probability category on your reports. This information is helpful in setting priorities for the current school year.

If most of your students have at least a 70% probability of reaching the Level 3 range, you might want to focus on:

  • Maintaining students at that performance level
  • Providing enrichment opportunities to move students to Level 4 or 5 range
  • Providing targeted interventions for the students in lower probability ranges

On the other hand, if most of your students have less than a 40% probability of reaching the Level 3 range, you might want to focus on:

  • Determining appropriate level of courses to support needs of students
  • Strategies teachers can use in core course to support students in being better prepared for college readiness
  • Determining available resources for which students and parents can access for needed skill improvement
  • Providing additional supports and interventions for college readiness skills
  • Determining if prep courses should be offered in various areas
