How to interpret diagnostic results
See above for instructions on how to view diagnostic results for individual children.
The diagnostic level indicates where within the grade/year group the child has been placed in relation to your school’s standards/curriculum.
Each level is made up of a number of skills, ordered according to the order they are usually taught in school. If a child is placed at ‘Grade 3.2’ we believe they are working at a level, around 20% through third-grade skills.
In the American Standard, the diagnostic score will correlate with the standard Grade level. For example, a Diagnostic score of 2.60 means the child will be working on around 60% through the 2nd-grade skills.
Diagnostic score of 0.00
If your child has received a diagnostic score of 0.00, it does not mean that they have failed to answer any question correctly.
A 0.00 means that the child will be starting at the beginning of the skill plan as they did not get a minimum of 80% accuracy in the easiest skill to progress further in the diagnostic.
What does ‘In progress’ mean?
If you see ‘In progress’, the child has not completed the diagnostic and you will have to wait until the child completes the diagnostic before seeing their results.
