Attention Wilcox Parents and Students,

 

We were informed today that the new HAWK pedestrian beacons will be turned on by the city tonight.This is a huge improvement in student safety, but will slow down the flow in the parking lot as the community gets used to the new traffic conditions. Wilcox administrators will be at the beacons at 7:30 AM and at the 12:20 release teaching our students how to properly use the beacons. We would like to strongly encourage any parent that drives their student to school to get to Wilcox early. Construction is ongoing and Monroe will only be one lane both ways. We are anticipating very bad traffic in the morning and in the afternoon. 

 

We are excited that the City has partnered with Santa Clara Unified School District to add this new safety feature for our students. Knowing how to approach the beacons is an important educational moment for the whole community since the HAWK lights are in several places around the City and often an unfamiliar type of traffic signal. The City of Santa Clara has prepared an educational video and educational flyer that will show both pedestrians and motorists how to approach the beacons. This information can also be found on our School Loop homepage.

Online score reports do more than show you which skills you should work on. They also connect you to:

Posted by: Christina Nelson Watkins
Published: 12/11/17




Audience: Homepage, Guidance, Guidance and Homepage

Calculating Your Score

Because there’s no penalty for guessing, your raw score is the number of questions you answered correctly. Raw scores are converted to scores on a scale of 160 to 760 using a process called equating. Equating adjusts for slight differences in difficulty between various versions of the test (such as versions taken on different days).

The College Board uses equating to make sure there’s no advantage in taking the test on a particular day. A score of 400, for instance, on one day’s test means the same thing as a 400 on a test taken on a different day—even though the questions are different.

Making Sense of the Numbers

Score ranges, mean (average) scores, benchmarks, and percentiles can be used to see if you’re on track for college readiness.

For the next few years, norm groups for the score ranges, mean scores, and percentiles described below will be derived from research data, not the prior year’s test-taking populations. A norm group, also called a reference population, is the group whose data your results are compared to.

Score Ranges

Tests can’t measure exactly what you know, and many factors can affect your score. After all, no two days are the same, and if you were to take the PSAT/NMSQT or PSAT 10 three times in a week or once a week for a month, your scores would vary.

That’s why it’s helpful to think of each score as a range that extends from a few points below to a few points above the score earned. Score ranges show how much your score might change with repeated testing, assuming that your skill level remains the same.

Mean (Average) Scores

Your score report will show you the mean, or average, scores earned by typical U.S. test-takers per grade. Unless your score is much lower than average, you’re probably developing the kinds of reading, writing and language, and math skills you’ll need in college.

College Readiness Benchmarks

You’ll see a benchmark for each section of the PSAT/NMSQT and PSAT 10. Benchmarks are the scores that represent college readiness. In other words, if you score at or above the benchmark, you’re on track to be ready for college when you graduate high school.

If you score below the benchmark, you still have time to work on your skills. Use the detailed feedback in your online score report to see which skills need the most improvement.

Percentile Ranks

A percentile rank is a number between 1 and 99 that shows how you scored compared to other students. It represents the percentage of students whose scores fall at or below your score.

For example, a 10th-grade student in the 57th percentile scored higher than or equal to 57 percent of 10th-graders.
