So I got B's PIAT-r test results back today. I think he did well? I'm not really sure? Our evaluator sent a detailed explanation of the results I just can't seem to wrap my head around them! It says that B did better than 70% of kids his age that took the test. That seems OK. Maybe I am expecting too much? I guess I wanted him to do better than 90% of kids his age... Too much? :-)
It also says that his scores were consistent with the scores of someone who was 11-10 (11 years and 10 months old) or grade 6.5. He is 11. Well, he will be in 2 days. :-) And we are about 3/4 of our way through 5th grade. Does that mean that 30% of the kids do better than this? I guess that makes sense.
Does anyone out there have experience with the PIAT-r standardized test? I guess that next year it will be easier because I will have prior tests to compare scores with. All I have from the past year are PSSAs.
