By following the data diagonally you can see how the “same” group of students scored each year on their progression through the grades from 3rd to 7th.  Please note, that as students move in/out there could be a slight difference in the assessment results as the groups change a little.

5th graders take an additional test in the area of writing.  We do not have NECAP comparative data as each year a different set of 5th graders take the assessment.  On the NECAP assessment in writing 71% of our students scored in the proficient or above category.   

The NECAP data helps schools to determine if programs are working for groups of students.  This assessment is designed to test students’ knowledge on the previous school year’s content material.  Over the next few months, our professionals will work to analyze the item results from both multiple choice and open response questions to see where groups of students are having difficulty.  Sometimes we find that children know the concepts, but have trouble with either the explanation in writing or the “show your work” part of the questions.  This analysis is critical to our decisions about next steps for our learners as we look at big picture programming.

Soon the Department of Education will be sending us your child’s specific NECAP results report.  Our office will be mailing these results out to families.  We hope that this overview of the results at school level will help you to further understand your child’s performance.  As always, we welcome any questions or concerns or further discussion on how we use this data to drive our programming.
