The Class Performance by Domain chart displays:
Overall Score (scale score A scale score is a score that can be compared with other tests on the same scale. For MSDA Diagnostic assessments, scale scores can be used to measure growth over time.)—The average of all scale scores of all students who have completed the assessment.Scale Score Example
A score of 1300 on a Level A Diagnostic (Kindergarten) means roughly the same as a score of 1300 on a Level B Diagnostic (Grade 1). So if a student scored a 1300 in Kindergarten and a 1350 in Grade 1, we can say that their math achievement increased by 50 scale score points.
Domain Scale Scores—Each domain score is the average of the domain scores of each student who has completed the assessment. Scores are determined by students' performance on questions aligned to the domain.
Overall Average Score—The average of all scale scores of all students who have completed the assessment. A legend shows the score ranges for Exceeds, Meets, Approaching, and Does Not Meet expectations, and the number of students who fall into that performance category for the assessment. Click the link if available to see a list of students in the performance category.
The Placement by Domain table displays:
The list of students who have completed the assessment.
Overall Scale Score—The student's overall scale score for all domains in the assessment, along with their performance category.
National Percentile—The student's national percentile ranking for the assessment.
Placement by Domain—The number of correct questions out of the total number of questions for the specified domain in the assessment. Because each student completes a unique assessment, students may have varied numbers of questions per domain.
