  1. 2010 STARInterpreting and Using Results August 11, 2010 Webcast Webcast starts at 9:00 a.m.

  2. Objectives Workshop participants will be able to: • Describe the purposes of STAR reports • Interpret STAR results • Explain key statistics • Compare and contrast types of reports • Identify proper uses of reports Post-Test Workshop

  3. Agenda • What’s New? • Results and Statistical Analysis • Using Results • Summary and Internet Reports • Data CDs • Individual Student Reports • Early Assessment Program Post-Test Workshop

  4. California Modified Assessment (CMA) reports Scale score, performance levels for Grades 6–8 English−Language Arts (ELA) Grades 6–7 mathematics Grade 8 science Percent correct for ELA grade 9 Life Science, grade 10 Algebra I What’s New in 2010 Manual (M) 2 Post-Test Workshop

  5. More What’s New M 2 • Standards-based Test in Spanish (STS) reports • Scale score, performance levels for • Grades 5–7 Reading/Language Arts (RLA) • Grades 5–7 mathematics • Percent correct for • Grades 8–11 RLA • Grades 7–11 Algebra I • Grades 8–11 Geometry • Subgroup Summary: Ethnicity • Grade 11 – Early Assessment Program (EAP) – California Community Colleges added Post-Test Workshop

  6. Quiz Question 1 Which of these tests had scale scores reported for the first time in 2010? • CST for World History • CAPA for Science • CMA for math grade 7 and science grade 8 • STS for math grade 7 and Algebra I Post-Test Workshop

  7. Quiz Question 1 Which of these tests had scale scores reported for the first time in 2010? C. CMA for math grade 7 and science grade 8 Post-Test Workshop

  8. Results: Purposes of STAR Reports M 4 • Report progress of students toward proficiency on the state’s academic content standards • Notify where improvement needed • To help students’ achievement • To improve educational programs • Provide data for state and federal accountability programs Post-Test Workshop

  9. Results: Performance Levels M 8−10 • State Goal: All students score at proficient or higher • CAPA Proficient: 35 or higher scale score • 350 or higher scale score • All CST • STS, grades 2–7, excluding Algebra I • CMA, grades 3–8, excluding Algebra I Post-Test Workshop

  10. Results: Other Performance Levels M 8−10;Appendix B • Advanced • Basic cut score • CAPA: 30 • CST: 300 • CMA, grades 3–8: 300(excluding Algebra I) • STS, grades 2–7: 300(excluding Algebra I) • Below basic • Far below basic • Cut points vary for advanced and below basic by • Subject • Grade Post-Test Workshop

  11. Results: Scale Scores M 8−10 • Scale scores allow same score to mean same thing across test versions within grade and content area • Accounts for differences in difficulty • Scale score ranges by program: • CST, CMA (grades 3–8, excluding Algebra I), STS (grades 2–7, excluding Algebra I): 150–600 for each grade and subject • CAPA: 15–60 for each level and subject Post-Test Workshop

  12. Results: Equating M 8 • Psychometric procedure • Adjusts for test difficulty • Additional information in the CST Technical Report on the CDE Web site Post-Test Workshop

  13. Results: Reporting Clusters(Content Areas) M 8−12;Appendix A • Three to six clusters for each subject • May be useful as indicators of individual or group strengths and weaknesses • But . . . Reporting clusters should be interpreted with caution Post-Test Workshop

  14. Results: Cluster Percent Correct Available for 2010 M 8−12;Appendix A • CST: all • CMA: • Grades 3–8, excluding Algebra I • STS: all Post-Test Workshop

  15. Results: Reporting ClusterCautions M 8−12;Appendix A • Based on small numbers of items; therefore, may not be reliable or generalizable • NOT equated from year to year • Should not compare reporting cluster percent correct from year to year Post-Test Workshop

  16. Interpreting Reporting Clusters or Content Areas in the Same Year M 8−12;Appendix A • Compare to percent-correct range of proficient students statewide Post-Test Workshop

  17. 2010 CST Reporting Clusters: Number of Questions and Average Percent Correct M Appendix A To be finalized with complete data in 2010 Post-Test Guide, after August 16. Post-Test Workshop

  18. Examples—Interpreting Reporting Clusters for the CST for Geometry M 11 Post-Test Workshop

  19. Quiz Question 2 What is a scale score? • Percent correct of all questions • Mean percent correct of all questions • An adjustment of this year’s and last year’s raw scores to show changes • An adjustment of the raw score to account for differences in difficulty Post-Test Workshop

  20. Quiz Question 2 What is a scale score? D. An adjustment of the raw score to account for differences in difficulty Post-Test Workshop

  21. Using Results M 4 • For instructional decisions with other data • Used in Academic Performance Index (API) calculations: CSTs, CAPA, CMA (only grades 3–8, excluding Algebra I) • Used in adequate yearly progress (AYP) calculations, ELA and mathematics: • Grades 2–8, CSTs • Grades 3–8, CMA (excluding Algebra I) • Grades 2–8 and 10, CAPA Post-Test Workshop

  22. Year-to-Year ComparisonsDo Compare CSTs:Same Grade and Same Content Area M 13−16 • Mean scale score • Same content and grade, varying years • Percent in each performance level • Same content by grade across years • e.g., 2009 ELA grade 10 with 2010 ELA grade 10 Post-Test Workshop

  23. Year-to-Year ComparisonsDo Compare CSTs:Percent Proficient and Advanced M 13−16 • Percentage of students scoring at PROFICIENT and above • For a given grade and subject, e.g., Percent proficient and above for grade 3 math in 2009 and 2010 • For a given subject and aggregated grades, e.g., Percent proficient and above for grades 2– 6 mathematics in 2009 and 2010 • Across grades and a subject, e.g., Percent proficient and above in all courses and all grades Post-Test Workshop

  24. Year-to-Year ComparisonsDON’T Compare M 13−16 • Individual scale scores or statistics based on scale scores for different grades or content areas • Subjects by grade are independently scaled • Different content standards are measured in different grades • Cohorts across grades • Across tests • CMA grades 6−11, STS grades 5−11 to previous years • CAPA, CMA grades 3−5, STS grades 2−4 to years before 2009 Post-Test Workshop

  26. Quiz Question 3 What is the best comparison for CST scores of students within a middle school? • 2009 mean scale scores for ELA of a cohort of grade 7 students with 2010 scale scores for ELA of the same students in grade 8 • 2009 mean scale scores for ELA for grade 8 students with 2010 mean scale scores for ELA for grade 8 students • 2009 mean percent correct scores for ELA with 2010 percent correct scores for ELA for the same students in grade 8 • 2009 mean percent correct scores for ELA for grade 8 students with 2010 mean percent correct for ELA for grade 8 students Post-Test Workshop
