Starting in June as students and teachers leave for the summer, state test scores (e.g., AzMERIT, PARCC, and SBAC) start rolling in. At this point, some districts/charters have already begun to upload their scores into Galileo and I would like to encourage you to upload your scores as well. Why? There are a number of reasons:
- We use this information to determine how well our tests correlate to the state assessment.
- We will generate a Forecast Report that compares benchmark scores of your students to the state assessment. The Forecast Report will display correlations and forecasting accuracy – how well we did at classifying students at various risk levels (high risk, moderate risk, low risk, or on-course).
- The state assessment data is placed in forms that can be used to generate reports (individual or aggregate) or to filter report results.
State assessment scores are uploaded through the Data Upload Planner in Galileo. To upload your scores go to: Setup, Data Setup, Data Upload Planner and then click on Create New Upload Plan. If you need help, please don’t hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or your Field Services Coordinator at email@example.com.
