Student History

The Student History report displays the student's performance on prior assessments. Viewing a student's testing history across subjects can be helpful for teachers. However, it's important not to place too much emphasis on comparing individual scores from one year to the next. The data presented here represents snapshots of the student's academic performance each year and should not be interpreted as a student's growth trend.

The data is presented in a chart and a table.­ ­To view the report for a different test or subject, choose from the list under the Tests/Subjects tab in the blue menu bar.

Understanding the Graph

The data in the chart is expressed in reference group percentiles.

The data points marked with a red triangle represent the student's scores on previous assessments in the selected subject.

The data points marked with a green diamond represent the average score for the school in which the student tested each year.

The data points marked with a blue circle represent the average score for the LEA/district in which the student tested each year. If the school and LEA/district averages are the same, the LEA/district's data points will be under the school's data points and will not be visible.

Understanding the Table

The State NCE\Score column lists the student's scores on prior assessments in this subject. Scores for assessments analyzed with the growth standard methodology are expressed as reference group NCEs. In the Scale Score column prior scores for assessments analyzed with the predictive methodology are listed as reference group scale scores.

The %-ile column displays the reference group percentile for each of the student's scores.

The Perf Level column displays the student's state performance level for each state assessment.

ACCESS for ELLs

ACCESS for ELLs Interpretive Guide for Score Reports Spring 2020: Understanding Student Scores provides information about these assessments. It includes additional details about the proficiency levels by subject in Appendix A: Proficiency Level Descriptors (Grades 1-12) and Appendix B: Proficiency Level Descriptors (Kindergarten). ACCESS for ELLs reports do not include state percentiles in tables or graphs.
