Basic Measurement Concepts

The chapter discusses the different ways of presenting student results and how that presentation can change our perspective of the data. For example, Student X scored at the 96th percentile on Exam 1, scoring higher than 24 of his 25 classmates. Student X scored a 62% of Exam 1 answering only 62% of the 100 questions correct. As a person now familiar with the various levels of assessment, how does the assessment data of Student X reflect the data at the classroom level? Why is the presentation of Student X’s assessment data as a percentile or % correct matter? Explain your answer using the text for support.
