ISTEP Interpretation The following is a brief interpretation of ISTEP+ data from Lynhurst Middle School over the past few years. First, it is to be noted this year’s data showed very little change from last year. For example, the school’s percentage pass in LA and Math was 48% this year compared to 50.4% last year. With that being said, the schools data is better and has remained steady since 2003-2004 school year. It is also important to note, this year’s current 8 th grade class did not score well on the English/LA test scoring a 49%. This was the lowest group score for the school. On the flip side, Lynhurst 7 th graders scored 81% in Math. This was also a strong section for the 8 th grade.
Breaking down the testing groups, the data suggests the following: Female students score better on all tests than males at both grade levels. Ethnicity results are varied. White, Multiracial and Hispanic students score well on different tests. However, I feel it important to note black students underperform other ethnic groups. Special Education students far underperform students in the regular education in both grade levels on both math and LA tests. There is a minor difference in the performance of free/reduced and paid students. However, the greatest margin of difference is 10% in 8 th grade LA. Overall, this was the lowest subtest for the entire school in 2008-2009. Limited English speakers score below non-limited. It is noted that this did not occur on the math test. Both groups scored similar with the limited scoring slightly higher than the non- limited.
