NORTH COAST CHRISTIAN SCHOOL S.A.T. SCORES FOR 2005-2006 These results are based on national norms using the Stanford Achievement Test Series, Ninth Edition A grade equivalent is based on a10-month school year. If a student scores at the average of all fifth graders tested in the first month of the school year, he or she would obtain a G.E. (grade equivalency ) of 5.1. Following are the class averages: Grade 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th 11th G.E 2.4 4.7 3.8 6.0 7.5 N/A 9.3 10.3 Post High School 11.8 11.7 Grade equivalent (G.E.) is a norm-referenced score and caution should be used when interpreting this type of score. For example, if a student at the end of fourth grade obtains a G.E. of 8.8 on a mathematics test, this does not mean that the child can do eighth-grade work. Rather, it means that the child obtained the same score as an average student in the eighth month of the eighth grade, had the eighth-grade student taken the fourth grade test.
