1) Answer the "new questions" that we discussed on May 17th (in black)
2) Check your previous work and make sure you've answered the purple questions.

New Questions:
How is growth measured as defined by the test developer?
What are the DC averages?
What is the national average or norm?
WHAT IS YOUR SUGGESTION FOR AN ACHIEVABLE TARGET/MINIMUM LEVEL ACCEPTABLE FOR GROWTH? (so if we go with a yes/no dichotomous scoring scheme)
WHAT IS YOU SUGGESTION FOR A REACH/IDEAL TARGET FOR GROWTH? (so if we go with a low/mid/high performance three tiered scoring scheme)

  • If the Supera can also be used for ACHIEVEMENT please copy and paste the above questions and answer FOR ACHIEVEMENT rather than growth.

Old Questions:
- Quick overview of this assessment.
- What are the proficiency levels or cut scores?
- How is growth calculated for this assessment (i.e., 3 points is adequate growth for students in the 220-250 range)
- Test reliability if that information is available.- anything else you find relevant about the assessment and how scores are used
- Anything else you find relevant about the assessment and how scores are used.

Supera Test: Evaluaciones Essenciales (Spanish)
The Supera test is a paper based, selected response test in reading/language arts and mathematics. Students record responses on a Scantron form. The test provides norm-referenced information data that Spanish GED teachers can use to inform instruction. The test developer designed the test to indicate student grade level performance in Spanish. Student growth is measured by grade level(i.e. a 3.4 score on a pre-test means student performed at a 3rd grade and 4 month level; a 4.5 score on the post would mean student performed at a 4th grade and 5 month level; growth in this example would be 1.1 meaning 1 grade and 1 month level improvement).
