> RE:		Final State Testing Results
> The following link will direct you to the final state, district, and
> school Core CRT results.  These results are considered complete and
> accurate for state reporting requirements and NCLB requirements.
> <http://www.usoe.k12.ut.us/eval/WhatsNew/AssessmentResults.htm>
> As you know there have been other results released in draft form. District
> received paper copies of draft results that reflected separate results for
> standard administration and accommodated administration. Those results do
> not comply with NCLB requirements to report all students' results. You
> should not use the hard copy results that were received initially for
> reporting purposes.
> Also note that the secondary language arts state level results were
> emailed to the testing directors last week. The State Board of Education
> did approve the proficiency levels, however we are verifying the
> application of these cut scores to ensure accurate information at the
> school level. The results will be posted as soon as possible, please check
> the link above for updated information.
> Thank you for your patience. We welcome your questions as you prepare your
> district reports.
