The CommonLit Pre-Assessment provides teachers with data on their students' performance compared to one another, as well as all other CommonLit students in the same grade who took the same pre-assessment.
On the Pre-Assessment Performance Data page, you will see your students' raw scores as well as a percentile score for how they did compared to other students in their grade who took the same grade-level pre-assessment. You will see them grouped by percentile and raw score. The Student Performance Groups are split at the 10, 30, and 70 percentiles. So, for example, students who receive a Percentile ranking between 30-69 would fall into the "Medium Performers" group.
You will also see students' average percentages on specific standards groupings. For teachers with classes in grades 3-5, teachers will see data related to Common Core State Standards 1-4. For teachers with students in classes from grades 6-12, teachers will see data related to standards 1-6.
There is no item analysis provided for the pre-assessment. Writing performance is not assessed by the pre-assessment.
At this time, the pre-assessment does not provide a reading level as a quantitative measure, such as a Lexile level.
Note: If your district has chosen to purchase CommonLit’s Interim Assessments, you will not have access to the Pre-Assessment feature on CommonLit.org. Instead, you’ll be able to collect baseline data through the first interim assessment that your district administers.
