Spring 2017 PROJECTED ESTIMATES – Raw Score Conversion Ranges for Spring 2017 STAAR Assessments (REV 01/10/2017) (Using Performance Standards Identified in PROPOSED Commissioner Rule Published December 7, 2016)

The ESTIMATED raw score ranges reported in this table were calculated by applying the %age of items required for students to meet the applicable performance standard on the Spring 2016 (English) paper administration versions of the indicated STAAR assessments to the maximum raw scores for each assessment in Spring 2017. The ESTIMATED raw score ranges are ONLY estimated projections for the Spring 2017 assessments. This table is intended SOLELY to provide approximations or reasonable estimates of the ranges of raw cut points for the applicable scale score performance standards specified in PROPOSED Commissioner Rule for the Spring 2017 STAAR assessments.
