PSSA scores are to be released at a presentation by the district on July 23.
Ideally, the data would be released prior to the presentation so that those attending would have time to study the information and prepare questions in advance.
Here is a link to a useful article on how to evaluate results of this type of test. For example, city gains/losses should be compared to statewide gains/losses as a clue to whether the test has become easier or more difficult. State results should also be compared to results on national tests such as the Terra Nova and SAT.
While some may disagree with conclusions drawn by the article (for example, that more charter schools are needed), it does seem to provide information that will be very relevant in interpreting the upcoming PSSA results.
