Making Sense of your Child’s Test Scores

Carin Illig from the Children’s Dyslexia Center in Lexington, MA sent a valuable article from Wrightslaw about how you can make sense of your child’s standardized test scores and be a better advocate for them.  The article is too long to print here but may be of some help to parents.  Some things to remember – excerpted from the article:

“Although test scores are important, they should not be your only source of information.
• First, tests may not measure what they appear to measure.
• Second, all tests do not measure a child’s skills comprehensively.
• Third, even the best tests are not perfectly reliable.”

You can find that article here.
