Online Reporting System User Guide 2017-2018(Coming Soon)

This user guide provides instructions on how to generate reports to see which students have or have not completed assessments and how to generate reports with student score information.

This sample score report shows a student’s best performance on the HSA Science Assessment that may be taken three times. It also shows whether a student has reached proficiency in the different areas of science, and suggests how the family can help him or her improve in these areas.

The student’s performance on the items is summarized in an overall test score referred to as the scale score. The scale scores are divided into four performance levels using three performance standards (i.e., cut scores). The scale score ranges for each performance level are provided in this table.

This document describes how a student demonstrates understanding of science concepts at the well below, approaches, meets and exceeds proficiency performance levels.
