Scores Released - PSAT and Fall SBA

PSAT: Sophomores and Juniors

Scores have been released for students who participated in the PSAT in October.  Students are receiving their score reports and tests back through their SAT Prep class or social studies class.  

Over 90% of our sophomores and juniors took the PSAT.  The sophomores had an average score of 1055 (compared to a state average of 953) and the juniors had an average score of 1147 (compared to a state average of 1013).

 

Fall Smarter Balanced Assessments: Juniors and Seniors

 Scores have been released for students who participated in the Fall Smarter Balance Assessments (SBA) for English-Language Arts (ELA) and Math. 

  • Current seniors are required to pass the SBA for ELA and a math test (End of Course Exam in Algebra or Geometry, or the SBA for Math). 
  • Current juniors are required to pass the SBA for English-Language Arts and the SBA for Math.  The same requirements are in place for current sophomores and freshmen.

The state sets the passing scores for each assessment, so the passing score for ELA is 2548 or higher and the passing score for Math is 2595 or higher.  At this point approximately 96% of juniors have met the ELA requirement and 80% of juniors have met the Math requirement.

Students who completed assessments this Fall received a copy of their score report in their language arts class or through the main office.  The scores should show up in Family Access within the next few weeks.

In the Spring, any juniors and seniors who need to complete any testing requirement will have another chance to test.  Also, current sophomores will have their first opportunity to pass both assessments.

If you have any questions about the graduation testing requirements or would like another copy of your student’s score report for the PSAT or SBA, feel free to contact Erin Armstrong, Dean of Students (armstronge2@issaquah.wednet.edu or 425-837-4948).
