No, of course I don't have them. But finally attacking some backlogged e-mail, I wanted to update you on the PSAT results from last year.
As you may recall, Boeing generously funded the district so that all the 9th, 10th and 11th graders could take the PSAT. This was about rigor we were told and to show the kids what they would need to do to get to college. The parents received their individual child's score but oddly, no data came out for the district, each school, grade level, etc.
I first got the answer that there was no time or staff available for this work. Then I received this reply:
"In response to your request below, as I mentioned before, the data is not in a format that can be incorporated into our database, so at this time I am unable to provide you with the statistical results you have requested without compromising student confidentiality."
So I called the College Board (who gives the PSAT) and the woman there said she couldn't understand that answer because they give the data out just so districts can do statistical analysis. So I have to surmise that the "database" (could it be the VAX is the culprit?) is the problem. Otherwise, why is this a state secret?
Oh well, because the guy I spoke to at Boeing says Boeing is to receive a report by December 31st with the results.
