Scaled Score (SS)

The Scaled Score (SS) is the most fundamental score produced by Star Reading tests. It ranges from 0 to 1400 and spans grades 1 through 12. It is calculated based on the difficulty of the questions and the number of correct responses. The Scaled Score is useful for comparing student performance over time and across grades. In Star Reading tests, all other norm-referenced scores are derived from the Scaled Score.

The Scaled Score is included in these reports: the Annual Progress Report, Diagnostic Report, the Growth Report, the Instructional Planning - Class Report, the Instructional Planning - Student Report, the Screening Report, the Student Progress Monitoring Report, the Summary Report, and the Test Record Report.
