The data from the CCRA U.S. History Content Assessment is now available in your district folder on the FTP site. Due to this assessment being a field test, this is the only data you will be receiving. The link to the FTP site is below. If you cannot locate your username or password please contact the service desk.
The ranking file you are receiving provides a percentile and ranking for your district, and the schools within your district, to show the comparison to schools and districts across the state. There is information in that file at the overall U.S. History reporting level, which is then separated out into the U.S. History and Civics domains as well. It is important to note that if there were fewer than 10 students that tested in a school or a district, that school or district was not included in the ranking and those fields will appear blank in the file.
Here is some information in how to interpret the file you receive.
|RepLevel||Reporting Level – This will indication if the information is for a school or a district.|
|Code||This is the district or school code.|
|RepOrder||Reporting Order - This indicates the test level for which the information is being provided. 0 = Total CCRA US History Assessment Test Score1 = US History only2 = Civics only|
|Percentile||Percentile is an indication of how the school or district did relative to its cohorts. For example, the 13th percentile means that the school or district had a better average score than 13% of the other schools or districts.|
|Ranking||Ranking is the numerical order in which the score is ranked relative to its cohorts. This would mean that the school or district with a ranking of 1 would have the highest average score. A ranking of 132 would indicate that the school or district has a lower average score than 131 other schools.|
