Understanding Scores Developmental Scale Scores Percentiles
Three types of scores are reported: Developmental Scale Scores Percentiles Achievement Levels

Developmental Scale Scores
This score allows for the comparison of the student’s EOG scores by subject from one grade to the next. The developmental scale score is like a ruler that measures growth in reading and mathematics from year to year. Just like height in inches, the student’s scores in reading and mathematics are expected to increase.

These levels are used to identify student performance.
Achievement Levels These levels are used to identify student performance. Level I: Students lack sufficient knowledge and skills to be successful at the next grade level. Level II: Students have inconsistent mastery of knowledge and skills and are minimally prepared to be successful at the next grade level. Level III: Students consistently demonstrate mastery of knowledge and skills and are well prepared for the next grade level. Level IV: Students consistently perform in a superior manner beyond that required to be proficient at the next grade level.

Math EOG Test Taking Strategies
Eliminate incorrect answers Use problem solving strategies Underlining / highlighting key words/phrases Leave behind evidence of understanding Practice with Calculators Eliminating extraneous information Checking your work – is your answer reasonable? Plug in your answer for each problem: it is multiple choice! Show work for ALL problems Use estimation strategies before solving problems

What You Can Do! Encourage students to take their time on assignments – don’t rush! Reinforce strategies taught and used at school Check your child’s homework for understanding Ask your child to EXPLAIN their reasoning Integrate real world concepts into their daily activities (time, money, reading data, estimation, cooking, etc)
