New definitions of the Achievement Levels and clarification of EOCT levels vs. MIlestones levels are listed below. Please share with students and discuss before we send scores home so they will understand how their previous scores stack up against the Milestones Achievement Levels. This will go a long way in clearing up any concerns with the drop in scores from EOCT to Milestones.
The "Distinguished Learner" and "Proficient Learner" students would have typically had previous scores meeting the "Exceeds" level of achievement. Those scoring "Proficient" or "Developing" on the Milestones would most likely have been a student who "Met Expectations" the previous year and those scoring "Beginning Learner" on the Milestones would have been those students who "Did Not Meet" expectations on the EOCT.
