|Message for Parents of Katy ISD 7th Grade Students||Message for Parents of Katy ISD 7th Grade Students||2015-06-08T22:30:09Z||<div class="ExternalClass068DDFB69B1248ED8E49687E05448D8E"><p>Parents of Katy ISD 7<sup>th</sup> Grade Students – </p><p>Katy ISD has just been alerted by Pearson, the test contractor for STAAR exams, of a reporting error on all 7<sup>th</sup> grade Confidential Student Reports (CSR) that were sent home. In the STAAR Writing section, there are two scores reported for the writing compositions. One score for the Expository composition, and one score for the Personal Narrative composition. The scores are reversed on the report you received. </p><p>For example, if your child's CSR shows 10/16 for Expository, and 8/16 for Personal Narrative, your child actually scored 8/16 for Expository and 10/16 for Personal Narrative.</p><p>This error does not impact your child's overall writing score, Level II: Met Satisfactory standard, or Level III: Advanced standard. Accurate CSRs will be sent home in early fall with correct composition scores and will be updated to include the new math standards when they are set. </p><p>If you have any questions, please contact your child's Principal. </p></div>|
