2012 STANFORD AND APRENDA NORM-REFERENCED TEST(NRT) RESULTS
The district has received the spring 2012 Stanford 10 and Aprenda 3 results for students ingrades 1
8. This year Houston Independent School District (HISD) assessed elementary andmiddle school students. This is the first year that HISD has not assessed high school levelgrades. This year the testing window for the norm-referenced test (NRT) was May 7–15. Beloware summaries of HISD’s performance of all students, as well as non-special education studentsonly, in grades 1
8 on Stanford 10 and Aprenda 3 tests.The results provided include:
 
The National Percentile Rank (NPR)
is a score that quantifies the rank order of studentperformance for each subtest score compared to the national norming sample.
 
The Normal Curve Equivalents (NCE)
is a score which is referenced to a nationallyrepresentative group of students and can be compared across grades and time.
 
At or Above 50
th
Percentile
provides a baseline for average student performance.Students who score at the 50
th
percentile, are by definition, on grade level. Thispercentage can be compared across grades and over time.

- National Percentile Ranks indicate the relative standing of a student in comparison with other students in the same grade inthe national norm-reference group.(--) No Data Available.
In the spring of 2012, the highest NPR for HISD non-special education students on theStanford 10 assessment was found in fifth and seventh grade science where studentsranked at the 74
th
and 65
th
percentile, respectively.
Average NCE increases were found at two grade levels in reading and language, fourgrade levels in environment/science, and one grade level in social science.The percentages of students who scored at or above the 50

national percentile on Stanford 10for each grade during the spring of 2011 and 2012 are presented in
