Where can I find the test results?
To check the results, go to your account, choose the Report Page, and then Yearly Dashboard. In the "Metametrics Assessment" section you can see three circles and three numbers: PT Quantile score (Placement Test), MY Quantile score (if student took the Mid-Year Test), and the EOY Quantile score (End-Of-Year Test).
Note! The exact Quantile score is shown only to premium users. Users without premium access see colored dots indicating whether a student’s assessment performance is on grade level or below grade level.
There are four possible categories that children may fall into based on their score:
Students who are far below the grade-level readiness (red dot)
Students who are below the grade-level readiness (pink dot)
Students who are on grade-level (light blue dot)
Students who exceed grade-level readiness (dark blue dot)
Can I see student responses on the test?
How to evaluate the EOY Quantile Measure?
The End-of-Year Test shows your students' next grade readiness. For each grade level, we have separated out groups of students based on their Quantile scores. You can see their levels HERE. For a quick check, look at the circle near the Quantile score. A light blue circle means that the student is ready for the next grade, a dark blue circle means the student is more than ready, a pink circle means the student is approaching readiness, and a red circle means that he or she partially meets the grade level.
The result in Quantiles can be much higher than the threshold value of the "Exceeds" level. If a student has a significantly high Quantile measure, it doesn’t mean that the results correspond to a higher grade level. The End-of-Year Test consists of questions that only measure readiness for the next grade. A high Quantile score only means that the student has answered all the test questions correctly. It doesn't mean that the student is ready to jump ahead more than one grade level of study.
Why can I see a negative Quantile number?
Quantiles are normalized in such a way that 0 in Quantiles corresponds to the very beginning of 1st grade, and negative values correspond to the level of K and PreK.
Why might a student have a lower score on the End-Of-Year Test than on the Placement Test?
Sometimes you see negative growth. This could have happened for various reasons. Here are the most common ones:
Parents helped with the Placement Test. Many students took the test at home due to the Covid-19 situation. Unfortunately, some parents solved the test with their children, believing that they were helping them learn. In this case, students' results on PT can be extremely high, but the End-of-Year Test shows their real level.
Students were overwhelmed. We try to make our content as friendly as possible, but for a variety of reasons, students can get overwhelmed, bored, or tired when taking the test and just click on any answer. In this case, it is best to reset the test. Learn how to do so below.
Students scored very high on the Placement Test. If your student's test results match the "Exceeds" level, it means that his/her Quantile score is well above 90% of the students from the same grade. The End-Of-Year Test shows readiness for the next grade and consists of questions that meet the standards of the current grade. It is more advanced, and perhaps this affected the results. But if his/her score still matches the "Exceeds" level on the chart, you have nothing to worry about.
How can I reset the test?
In case you are not satisfied with the test results for a good reason, there is always the option to reset it within 14 days after the test is taken. To do so, choose the Control Panel tab in your account and click the Reset button opposite the name of the student who needs to take the test again.
