Middle Level Extension: Simplified Example

  • Level 3 Math Regents Exam is equated to scale score of 663*.

  • Billy scores a 623 in Grade 5 Math.

  • Billy enrolls in a new middle school in Grade 6.

  • Billy is 40 points below proficiency (663-623).

  • Billy has four years to become proficient.

  • Billy must close the gap by 1/4 (10 points) in Grade 6.

  • Billy‚Äôs proficiency target in Grade 6 is 633 (623 + 10).

  • If Billy remained in his original school in Grade 6, then his proficiency target would have been 637.

(650**-623= 27/2 years = 13.5 + 623 = 637.)
