What score reports can you expect when you test with CHEWV?
First, you will receive the complete IOWA score reports directly from BJUP. The Profile Narrative provides the National Percentile Rank (NPR) for each subtest along with the five scores that must be averaged to obtain the “mean” for WV homeschoolers. The number of items and percent correct can also be quite helpful to the parent.
However, the composite scores are probably the most valuable. More information about how to use this score report can be found here.
*Please note that actual score reports received may look different than the samples shown.
The Performance Profile score report has additional graphs and is basically a synopsis of scores.
While these reports are both very valuable to the parent, neither of the above reports are ideal to send to the county. Both contain additional information that is not required by WV law. We do not recommend submitting information that is not required for a variety of reasons. That’s where the WV-specific CHEWV reports come in handy.
CHEWV testing families can request one of two CHEWV-generated score reports. The first is the County Report which is designed to be turned in to the county for grades 3, 5, 8, and 11. It contains all the information that must be submitted according to the law.
The other option is our Progress Report. It is designed to help the parent determine the progress of each child according to WV’s standards – helping them determine whether “acceptable progress” – as defined by 18-8-1c2 – has been made for the year. Used with our flow chart, it’s easy to see what the next step is. The Progress Report is appropriate in years when scores must be kept on record but not submitted to the county, i.e., K, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, and 12th.
