Reporting Progress and Proficiency
Qualifiers and Score
The relationship between the qualifier and proficiency scale is shown. The proficiency scales define growth between the content scores. As shown, a student may show partial growth or success in proficiently meeting target content throughout the school year. The growth is represented as 2.5 and 1.5 and reported as AEG –approaching expectations with growth or TEG targeting expectations with growth.
Further Explanation of the Proficiency Levels
A child that rides a bicycle with training wheels and needs someone for support and to be there to push them along is defined as a 2.0 or AE which means that the child is getting close to meeting expectations and can do basic content and skills.
The next step in learning to ride a bicycle would be to remove the training wheels and adult support. A child that rides a bicycle independently is successfully meeting expectations and is defined as a 3.0 or ME. At times, you may experience falling, but you get right back up on the bicycle and continue riding.
Now, if you are really confident and skilled at riding a bicycle, you may want to apply your knowledge and skills deeper by trying some tricks or willies. A child that rides a bicycle independently and can apply their skills is defined as a 4.0 or EE. The child still has a bicycle but can demonstrate performance at a deeper level than the expectation of the standard, but not grade level.
