After the Fall assessment we looked at Cohorts of students, our 3rd graders dropped 9.3 RIT points in the grade-level mean from when they took the test last spring as 2nd graders. Is this typical?
Thanks for your question. A fall in scores can result from summer slide. Check out the replies to a similar question about a drop between spring to fall RIT scores.
Did your 2nd graders take the MAP Growth K-2 test? If so, then read this article about the decline in RIT scores between MAP Growth K-2 and 2-5 testing.
Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

Question, do second grade student generally show more growth than other grades? Our second graders take the 2-5 test.
Thanks for your question. The amount of growth varies for every student. You can use the NWEA norms to see what's typical at each grade level. Let us know if you have any other questions.
