To the Parents/Guardians of ________________________SID: ________________GRD: _____ 

Your student recently took a Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) screener assessment for mathematics and/or reading. Math Inventory is a computerized test that assesses students’ mathematics understanding along a developmental continuum. The Math Inventory generates a Quantile® (Q) score. Reading Inventory is a computerized assessment that evaluates students’ reading ability. The Reading Inventory generates a reader Lexile® (L) score. Teachers use inventory results together with performance on other assessments to help plan appropriate instruction and support as students learn new concepts and skills. Your student’s assessment results from the recent testing window are reported in the chart below.

Current score provides a way to measure growth. You can compare your student’s current score to the end-of-year grade level range. You can also compare your student’s scores from one window to the next to see progress in reading or mathematics. Generally, a student’s Quantile and Lexile scores will increase throughout the school year. When the current score is a negative value, it means that your student performed at the early stages of mathematics or literacy development on this current assessment.

Current performance level indicates how your student’s score compares to end-of-year expectations. A student who achieves a Proficient or Advanced performance level by the end of the school year is considered to be performing at grade level and is on track to meet the demands of college and career by the end of high school. For students whose performance level is Basic or Below Basic, school staff will review available data to determine if additional assessments and/or interventions are needed. The school will communicate any next steps for your student. 

If you have questions about these assessment results or your student’s strengths and needs in mathematics or reading, please contact your student’s teacher. If your student qualifies for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) services, please keep in mind that the screener assessment is administered in English, and your student is in the process of developing English language proficiency. Contact your student’s ESOL teacher for information on your student’s English language development.
