Nelson, Peter M.; Van Norman, Ethan R.; VanDerHeyden, Amanda – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
We used existing reading (n = 1,498) and math (n = 2,260) data to evaluate state test scores for screening middle school students. In Phase 1, state test data were used to create a research-derived cut score that was optimal for predicting state test performance the following year. In Phase 2, those cut scores were applied with future cohorts.…
