[b]Lyman scores above the State average on Writing test[/b]

Posted by Nicole
Seventy percent of Lymans fifth graders and seventy-eight percent of Lymans ninth graders can write well enough to score proficient or better on a nationally-normed writing assessment that was given last October. This compares at the state level to fifty percent of grade five and sixty four percent of grade nine respectively.

An analytical scoring system is used for the Stanford Writing Test using a four-point scale that scores writing samples from a low of 1 to a high of 4 in six characteristics: Ideas and Development; Organization, Unity, and Coherence; Word Choice; Sentences and Paragraphs; Grammar and Usage; and Writing Mechanics.

Mark Dunn, Lyman School Counselor said, We are pleased again this year with our scores. Our fifth graders scored 20 percentage points above their peers in the state and our freshmen were 14 points higher. Our teachers have really put an emphasis on writing and our students want to do well in this area as well.
