2016 PARCC Results by Subgroup by Grade and Subject


Achievement Levels:
L5 = Level 5: Exceeded Expectations (varies by grade - 850)
L4 = Level 4: Met Expectations (750 - varies by grade)
L3 = Level 3: Approached Expectations (725-749)
L2 = Level 2: Partially met Expectations (700-724)
L1 = Level 1: Did not meet Expectations (650-699)


Trans. SGP = Transitional Student Growth Percentile
generated using current PARCC and prior MCAS scores
Trans. CPI = Transitional Composite Performance Index
generated using linked PARCC and MCAS scores

NOTE: Since only a portion of students in grades 3-8 participated in 2016 PARCC in ELA/L and Mathematics, a representative sample of students from across Massachusetts was used to estimate student achievement at the state level in those subjects.
NOTE: Students who took the Alternate Assessment are included in Mean CPI, but not in achievement level or growth results.

NOTE: In 2016, assessment participation was calculated two ways: First, the 2016 participation rate for each subgroup in each subject area test was calculated. If the actual 2016 participation rate was lower than 95 percent for any group in any subject, that rate was compared to the average of the most recent two years of assessment participation data for that group and subject. The higher of the two resulting rates was factored into the assignment of the school or district's 2016 accountability and assistance level.

 

2015 Massachusetts and Nationwide NAEP Results by Student Group
Average Scaled Scores and Percentages of Students at Each Achievement Level


About the Data

NAEP, or the National Assessment of Educational Progress, is often called the "Nation's Report Card." It is the only measure of student achievement in the United States that allows you to compare the performance of students in Massachusetts with the performance of students across the nation or in other states. Students take the NAEP in reading and mathematics every two years. When reviewing these results, it is important to keep in mind that the NAEP results are based on a small sample of students across Massachusetts, not the population of Massachusetts students. For more information, please visit http://www.doe.mass.edu/mcas/naep/faq.html.

The following symbols are used to denote the NAEP achievement levels: A for Advanced, P+ for Proficient and above, B+ for Basic and above, BB for Below Basic. The symbol "#" means that the estimated number of students rounds to zero.

Participation Rates for Students with Disabilities and for English Language Learner Students

The NAEP program has always endeavored to assess all students selected for testing. In all NAEP schools, accommodations are provided as necessary for students with disabilities and/or English language learners. School staff who are familiar with these students are asked a series of questions to help them decide whether each student should participate in the assessment and whether the student needs accommodations.
