New North Dakota student test info can help parents, Baesler says
BISMARCK - Student results from the North Dakota State Assessment for English and math are now available for parents to request from their childrens’ schools, the state superintendent said.
Kirsten Baesler said they offer helpful information about the progress of each student’s learning.
The results are called Individual Student Reports. The North Dakota State Assessment itself was given this spring to students in grades three through eight, and to students in the 10th grade.
Making assessment scores quickly available have made the results more valuable to parents and teachers, Baesler said in a news release. Parents who wish to see the reports should request them from their child’s school principal.
The reports show graphically where a student is on a proficiency scale, Baesler said. An individual student’s scores may be compared to his or her peer groups in the school, district, or state.
