RIT scores and grade level
During our weekly teacher PLC today, a teacher brought up a good question that created some disucssion.
A 6th grade student scores a 237, according to the 2011 Norm scale, he is at an 11th grade normed level.
While this does mean that the student is performing very high in 6th grade, does it mean that the student is ready for 11th grade material in math? Would this student be able to comprehend that level of math?
Are there any ideas on this topic?
