The purpose of this project was to develop a reference guide for administrators to use with standardized test data. Standardized tests are regularly given to students in our public schools. Often, the results are published for the community. It is important for the building principal to use these data in positive ways to enhance student growth. The suggestions in the guide are meant to facilitate effective use of standardized test data by administrators.
