HOW DO YOU FIND OUT YOUR STATE TESTING SCORES?
Although this information is available in Family Access, if you would like a paper copy, they are available for pick up. Students or parents may stop into our main office to request a score report from our Dean of Students, Mr. Gai.
- Log in to Student or Family Access.
- On the left menu, select "Test Scores".
- A list of all standardized test scores will be listed. A summary of the state testing scores for Washington State graduation purposes will be under the selection "GDWa-GraduateofWA". Click on "Show Scores."
- If a student has met the requirement, it will say "Yes" under the subject column (see circled areas below). The example shows a student that has met all four state testing requirements. Under "Section: Tests", there is a summary of the number of attempts for each type of test and the highest score met so far. A 400 is a standard passing score for Reading, Math, and Science. A 17 is a standard passing score for Writing. The various score levels can be found at the OSPI Scale Scores: State Assessments page.
As a brand new feature, you can now access the Individual Student Report results (this more detailed overview of your student’s score) starting with the Fall Smarter Balanced Testing. It can be viewed in Family Access by choosing the Portfolio tab and then the Fall 2017 SBA ELA (English Language Arts) or Math tab. The reports will be available online for the current school year. Parents are encouraged to print the reports prior to June.
Although this information is available in Family Access, if you would like a paper copy, they are also available for pick up until June as well. Students or parents may stop into our main office to request a score report from our Dean of Students, Mr. Gai. This is the same form that can now be accessed in the Portfolio tab of Family Access and offers a more detailed score report.
