Weighted Averages for School Progress

Grade level scores for the MSA will be reported and disaggregated for all students who took the test. For purposes of School Progress, the grade level scores of students who count for School Progress will be combined to create one subject score for the school. The average will be weighted according to the number of students in each grade. For example, in a school with 25 third-graders and 50 fifth-graders, the third grade reading score would count for one-third of the school reading score, the fifth grade would count for two-thirds.
