• Lexile score based on the Reading Inventory
    All  students participate in the Reading Inventory throughout the year to measure progress. Our closest indicator to how students will perform on the math EOG is their accurate Lexile level which is measured by the RI ( Reading Inventory).  Students take the RI assessment at least 3 times throughout the year.   We will focus on using https://lexile.com at school (in the classroom and media center) to find books on your child’s reading level.  Your child should be reading books 100 points below and 50 points above their level in order to help them make significant growth in their reading. Please help them by using these resources to find books that your child is interested in reading (fiction and non-fiction) within their reading level in order to see improvement.  Click here for a video that explains the Lexile measure https://youtu.be/AiFm2Jr8FzY 
     
    Below is the correlation between reading level and EOG performance.

    Quantile score based on the scholastic Math Inventory
    All fourth grade students participate in the Scholastic Math Inventory throughout the year to measure progress. Our closest indicator to how students will perform on the math EOG is their accurate Quantile level which is measured by the MI ( Math Inventory).  Students take the MI assessment at least 3 times throughout the year.  Ask your teacher and child about their personal Quantile measurement. This measurement is also used by the middle school to help determine math placement. 

    Below is the correlation between math level and EOG performance. 
     
     
     
    Level 3 Sufficient Command   SMI score of  725Q to 760Q
    Level 4 Solid Command  SMI score of   765Q to 950Q
    Level 5 Superior Command   SMI score of  950Q and Above
