Grade Placement (GP)

Grade Placement (GP) is a numeric representation of a student's grade level, based on the specific month in which a student completes an assignment or test.

Renaissance considers the “standard” school year to run from September through June and assigns increment values of 0.0 through 0.9 to these months.

The decimal values of the months are shown, beginning with 0.0 in September and increasing by .1 every month, ending with 0.9 in June. July and August can be either 0.0 or 0.99.

* See the Star Assessments™ for Math Technical Manual or the
Star Assessments™ for Reading Technical Manual for more information.

The software automatically assigns grade placements using a student's grade level and the month in which a test was taken or an assignment completed.

Grade Placements for pre-K students are negative numbers.

Percentile Rank (PR) and Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE) values are based not only on the Scaled Score but also on the grade placement of the student at the time of the test.

GP can be found on the following reports:
