2016/2017 ITBS Testing Results
The table below shows grade equivalent scores, and this compares your child’s performance on grade level material against the average performance of students at other grade levels on that same material. If your 5th grade child is scored at the grade equivalent of 8.1, that means that she or he can solve 5th grade math problems at the same level as the average 8th grader. The averages above reflect the performance of the whole class; individual students may be higher or lower. At the time of testing, each grade level was in the sixth month; in parenthesis you will see the grade level at the time of testing.
Conclusion: St. Thomas students consistently scored beyond their school age (e.g.: 3.6 is the chronological age and 5.0 is the reading grade equivalent for third grade in reading).
The table below shows national percentile ranks for students from STES compared to national averages. Percentile ranks range from 1 to 99 and compare your child’s performance with other students at the same grade. A percentile rank of 50 is average. If the class average is 70, that means the average of the class is higher than 70 out of 100 students of the same grade. Percentile rank is not the same as percentage correct; rather it is used for comparison.
Conclusion: St. Thomas accepts students who achieve at or above grade level. Grade level class averages consistently reflect performance far above the 50th National Percentile Rank.
Our teachers and students should be congratulated on their excellent performance on ITBS. Unlike public schools, our students do not spend hours practicing for these tests. These tests reflect the well-rounded curriculum that we offer at STES, and the effective pedagogical practices of our teachers.
