Above-grade-level tests work to spread out the population of advanced learners to see where one might fall among other students who perform at the top end of in-grade-level tests. In this way, they can provide a clearer sense of the level of challenge a student might need. The tests being accepted through this pilot are not administered above-grade-level, so they cannot provide that level of information. However, what we hope to learn is whether students who perform in the top 98th percentile on state and nationally normed tests are successful in CTY’s above-level course work. In this way, we may identify students who need additional challenge who may not have qualified through traditional Talent Search assessments.
How do the tests accepted under the pilot provide an indication of how a student may fair in courses designed for those whose academic needs are two or more grade levels above their current grade? Print
