Can someone explain to me the ISA scores? What do you think of the ISA test?

My kids go to a charter school and they use ISA tests. I get the results and don't quite fully understand all of it. There is the dot where my child lands on the scale and there is a darker and lighter bands. I don't understand what is considered good. Anything above a 500? 600?

Anyone familiar with this?

1. Ugh. IMO, the ISA is not designed for individual parents or students.

It's for administrators. Now, let me climb down off my soap box.

Thank you.

To understand your child's score, see the last 3 (-ish) pages of this:

2. So it's like a bell curve representation of my child's scores

In relation to all the other kids in her grade level? At her school? Or how she did in relation to other kids around the world?

The school touts these scores because they tend to do well. But I am not sure we are given all the information. I may be calling them and making an appointment to meet with an administrator soon.

Thanks for the link.
