SBA Math Score Report
CHARTS BELOW DESCRIBE WHAT YOU SEE ON THE SCORE REPORT ABOVE:
The number in the left column in the first chart below corresponds to the number shown on the sample report above.  The description in the right hand column provides either the specific text from the score report or (if the text is in italics) a description of that section of the report.

# Exact Text or Description
 1a Your child's Mathematics Score
1b Your child's Mathematics Score shown on a Level 1-4 scale compared to School, District, and State averages.
 2 For comparison purposes,  you're provided with average scores received by students tested at the same grade level as your child. 
If your child took the High School SBA test, then the
Graduation Cut Score (minimum score required to meet graduation requirements) is also shown:

School Average score: ####
District Average score: ####
State Average score: ####

Note: Averages are not reported if student took High School Off-Grade Level test.
 3 Math Performance Level Descriptions for students who tested at their current grade level

Level 4 The student has exceeded the achievement standard and demonstrates the knowledge and skills in mathematics needed for likely success in a career and entry-level credit-bearing college coursework after high school.
Level 3 The student has met the achievement standard and demonstrates the knowledge and skills in mathematics needed for likely success in a career and entry-level credit-bearing college coursework after completing high school coursework.
Level 2 The student has nearly met the achievement standard and may require further development to demonstrate the knowledge and skills in mathematics needed for likely success in a career and entry-level credit-bearing college coursework after high school.
Level 1 The student has not met the achievement standard and needs substantial improvement to demonstrate the knowledge and skills in mathematics needed for likely success in a career and entry-level credit-bearing college coursework after high school.

HS Off
Grade Level Test Taken
If this is a report for a high school special education student who took an Off-Grade Level test, text instead reads as follows:

Level 4 The student has exceeded the achievement level necessary to meet this student's assessment graduation requirement in Mathematics.
Level 3 The student has met the achievement level necessary to meet this student's assessment graduation requirement in mathematics.
Level 2 The student has nearly met the achievement level necessary to meet this student's assessment graduation requirement in mathematics.
Level 1 The student has not met the achievement level necessary to meet this student's assessment graduation requirement in mathematics.

On a Grade 3-8 Score Report
How does this compare?
On Grade 3-8 score reports: This provides a text description that describes where your child's score fell in relation to the School, District, and State averages as shown on the report in section 3.

(Your child's name)'s Mathematics scale score is ####.  This score is (higher than, similar to, or lower than) the average score of (your child's grade level) graders in your child's school, (higher than, similar to, or lower than) that of (your child's grade level) graders in  your child's district, and (higher than, similar to, or lower than) that of (your child's grade level) graders statewide.

On a
HS Score Report
On High School score reports: This provides a text description as to whether your child met the college and career ready cut score and it gives you the graduation cut score.  To meet the college and career ready cut score your child must score in the Level 3 or 4 range.

(Your child's name)'
s score of #### (meets or does not meet) the career and college ready cut score.  A score of 2595 is needed to meet the Mathematics assessment graduation requirement, if not already met.  For more information, see www.k12.wa.us/GraduationRequirements.

On a
HS Off-Grade Level Score Report
On High School Off-Grade Level score reports: If a high school special education student has taken an Off-Grade Level assessment, this section describes whether the student met their graduation requirement based on that test.  To pass an Off-Grade Level assessment the student must score in the Level 3 or 4 range.

(Your child's name)'s score of #### falls within the score range of ####-#### (Level #). 
If your child's score was within Level 3 or 4 it will then read: 
This score is above the student's Mathematics assessment graduation requirement as designated in the student's IEP.
OR If your child's score was within Level 1 or 2, it will then read: 
This score does not fulfill the student's Mathematics assessment graduation requirement as designated in the student's IEP.

5 A student's test score can vary if the test is taken several times.  If your child were tested again, it is likely that (your child's name) would receive a score between #### and #### (range of scores your child might earn taking into account a margin of error).

6 FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions for students who tested at their own grade level)

What is the Smarter Balanced Mathematics Assessment?
This assessment is aligned to the academic standards for mathematics.  These standards identify what students should know and be able to do to graduate high school ready for college and the workplace.  They challenge students to develop a deeper understanding of subject matter, learn how to think critically, and apply what they are learning to the real world.

What is a claim?
Mathematical claims are broad statements that identify the knowledge and skills students should know and be able to do as they progress toward college and career readiness.  How your Student performed on each claim is found in the columns to the right.

Where can I find more information about the student score?
A test score guide can be found at http://testscoreguide.org/wa/

FAQ's (for high school special education students who took an Off-Grade Level test)

What is the Off-Grade Level Smarter Balanced Mathematics Assessment?
The Off-Grade Level Mathematics assessment contains items that gather evidence of a student's understanding of the academic standards for mathematics.   This assessment may be used to meet assessment graduation requirements.

What is a claim?
Mathematical claims are broad statements that identify the knowledge and skills students should know and be able to do as they progress toward college and career readiness.  How your Student performed on each claim is found in the columns to the right.

What score meets the assessment graduation requirement designated in the student's IEP?
Scores that fall within Levels 3 and 4 are considered as fulfilling the requirement.


7: How did (your child's name) perform on the different claims of the test?

For each claim (sub-category of Mathematics) the report indicates whether your child performed either Below Standard, At/Near Standard, or Above Standard.  The chart below provides the comments you may see, depending on the performance level symbols displayed on your child's report.


Table describing the performance levels for each claim for mathematics
Performance Level  Claim 1: Concepts and Procedures Claim 2 & 4: Problem Solving and Modeling and Data Analysis Claim 3: Communicating Reasoning
 
Below Standard
Student has difficulty explaining and applying mathematical concepts and interpreting and carrying out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.  Student has difficulty solving a range of complex well-posed problems in pure and applied mathematics, making productive use of knowledge and problem solving strategies.  Student has difficulty analyzing complex, real-world scenarios and has difficulty constructing and using mathematical  models to interpret and solve problems. Student has difficulty clearly and precisely constructing viable arguments to support their own reasoning and to critique the reasoning of others.
 
At/Near Standard
Student may be able to explain and apply mathematical concepts and interpret and carry out mathematical procedures with precision and fluency.
