3 3 Agenda ReadiStep and the College and Career Readiness Pathway Revising the ReadiStep Score Scale Benefits of the Revised Scale Resources and Additional Information

4 4 The Role of ReadiStep The College and Career Readiness Pathway

5 5 A Pathway to Performance College and Career Readiness Expectations for All Students Three integrated assessments – one powerful tool The College Boards College and Career Readiness Pathway is a series of integrated diagnostic assessments that measures college and career readiness from the eighth through the 12th grades Intervening Early Identifying Opportunity Providing College Access

6 6 ReadiStep : The First Step Consistent content and format –Same content areas: reading, writing and mathematics –Same skill categories at grade-appropriate levels –Same format and question types Consistent tools and reports –Skills Insight –Summary of Answers and Skills (SOAS) –College Readiness Benchmarks – New! Designed to work with the PSAT/NMSQT ® and SAT ®

7 7 Revising the Score Scale Strengthening the Link to the PSAT/NMSQT ® and SAT ®

8 8 ReadiStep Score Scale Analysis Objectives –Put ReadiStep on the same scale as the PSAT/NMSQT ® and SAT ® –Allow for growth measurement and more integrated reporting –Establish benchmarks linked to the PSAT/NMSQT and SAT Process –Conducted a field trial to collect additional data in Fall 2011 –Performed extensive analyses of field trial results and other data –Consulted an outside panel of experts –Developed a revised ReadiStep score scale –Will implement new scale starting in

9 9 Scores on a scale of 2 to 8 per section (0.2 increments) Designed for easy interpretation, using end points that look similar to those of the PSAT/NMSQT ® (20–80) and SAT ® (200–800) However, the ReadiStep scale itself was independent of the other assessments scales Original ReadiStep Score Scale 2 – 8 20 (200) – 80 (800)

10 10 Revised ReadiStep Score Scale Scores on a scale of 1 to 7 per section (0.1 increments) Linked directly to PSAT/NMSQT ® and SAT ® score scales Accounts for lower skill levels of students in middle grades Original Scale: 2–8 per section 0.2 increments Original Scale: 2–8 per section 0.2 increments Revised Scale: 1–7 per section 0.1 increments Revised Scale: 1–7 per section 0.1 increments

13 13 Key Benefits Revised ReadiStep Score Scale

14 14 Benefits of the New ReadiStep Scale Allows ReadiStep to be interpreted within the context of PSAT/NMSQT and SAT score scales Allows for growth measurement and reporting –Linked scale makes it simpler to gauge progress Allows for a progression of linked college readiness benchmarks from 8th grade through high school –ReadiStep benchmark will be available beginning in Direct link to PSAT/NMSQT ® and SAT ® score scales
