Test Score and Status Key

Reading and Listening will have Self-Evaluation Levels up to Level 7. Rating for Writing and Speaking is done using Benchmark Levels 1-8. The levels are associated with the benchmark categories of Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced as shown in the Level Keys below.

 For more information about these levels please refer to our STAMP Benchmarks & Rubric Guide.

screenshot of the Status key found

The test taker has not started this section of the test. If all sections are marked NS the test taker has completed only the Profile.

The test taker has started, but not completed, this section of the test. For the Writing and Speaking sections, click the IP to see how many responses have been submitted.

This section of the test is complete, but the rating is not complete for one or more responses. Click the SP to see how many responses have been rated.

Writing or Speaking sections will have the status NR (Not Ratable) if a rater is not able to rate any of the responses in the section. See possible reasons for NR (Not Ratable) status here.

As the STAMP test is increasingly used for higher stakes purposes like awarding either credit or the Seal of Biliteracy, Avant has also increased the rigor of our rating process. The purpose of the zero score is simply to act as a flag that a potential test taker agreement violation has been identified in the response. See possible reasons for a Zero Score (0) here.

Possible Reasons for NR (Not Ratable) Status

Technology Issues

SPEAKING: No audio, buzzing, static/noises or low audio volume that prevents an accurate score. These are clear cases of technology hindering the ability to complete the task.

WRITING: The test taker indicates that no keyboard was set up for character-based languages or had other typing/input issues.

Other​

SPEAKING: The test taker is speaking, however, there are loud background noises like disruptive test takers near the test taker, fire alarms, teachers giving instructions/directions in the background, or the test taker is whispering, preventing the raters from being able to adequately hear the complete response.

SPEAKING/WRITING: The test taker describes the picture or reads/translates the prompt or responds using dialect.

Possible Reasons for Zero Score

Test Agreement Violation

  • Using ANY outside resources (translation support).
  • Writing out your Speaking response and reading it (flagged for poor pronunciation of very common words and/or a reading cadence rather than fluent or natural flow).
  • Any action or evidence that the test taker may have received assistance or support in completing any portion of the task.

Please refer to the test taker agreement items found here.

Non-Target Language

The response is given entirely in a language other than the target/test language.

No Attempt to Respond / Only ONE Target Language Word

WRITING: No response given.

SPEAKING/WRITING:  Speaking response submitted with only background noise (no response), or ONLY ONE target language word. The test taker responds with “I DON’T KNOW” or a similar response in English or the testing language.

Off Topic

The response fails to address ANY portion of the prompt or task.

Gibberish

The language provided makes no sense to even a sympathetic reader/listener.

Violent Language

Any language that is threatening, menacing, or violent towards ANY participant in the narrative or to the reader.

Profane Language

Any language that is vulgar, offensive, profane, or disrespectful towards ANY participant in the narrative or to the reader.

Review Test Results

Self-Evaluation Reading and Listening Sections Scores

The Avant STAMP WS language proficiency test is a semi-adaptive test. Test takers will be asked to answer seven self-evaluation questions that best represent their skill/ability level in both the Reading and Listening sections. The self-evaluated reading score is used to determine the level of prompt delivered for the writing section. The same applies for the listening self-evaluation related to the speaking prompts. This allows the language productive sections to be more appropriately leveled for the test taker.

Refer to the STAMP WS Self-Evaluation Guide for more information regarding the type of questions in this section.

Writing and Speaking Section Scores

Writing and Speaking scores are typically available from 7 to 10  business days after test completion. Scores may be available sooner, so check the test results screen periodically to determine the rating progress. Click on any score to see additional details or to access Writing and Speaking responses. During busy testing times (March-June), scoring may take longer. Please plan accordingly.

What Does The Minus Sign Mean?

A minus sign after the score for a Writing or Speaking section notates that, of the three necessary ratable responses, the test taker only submitted one. This is an alert that limited evidence was available to establish the score.

Accessing Writing and Speaking Responses

You’re able to see the written responses and listen to recorded audio responses that test takers submit. For the Writing and Speaking sections, click on the section score to bring up the section details. Click on Response 1, Response 2 or Response 3 to access the test taker’s actual response for each specific task. This can also be helpful for understanding why responses were scored Zero or Not Ratable.

High (H) and Low (L) Indicators for Individual Responses

High (H) and Low (L) indicators for individual responses are included in the sidebar of the report. This assists testing coordinators and teachers in better understanding the range of responses that can occur in each sub-level for an individual test taker. These indicators serve a similar purpose as the Scaled Scores for Reading and Listening and can be used for research and review purposes.

Composite Score

Composite Scores are available when all sections have been completed, scored, and rated. The Composite Score represents a test taker’s scores added together and divided by the total number of sections assessed.

Testing Group Averages

The number in the graph for Writing and Speaking represents all test taker scores divided by the number of test takers with a score for the specific skill. The number in the graph for the Composite Score represents all test takers’ Composite Scores added together and divided by the total number of test takers in this testing group. Self-Evaluated scores for Reading and Listening are not included in these graphs.

STAMP WS - Testing Group Averages

Reading and Listening graphs will have no results.

Composite scores are calculated from Writing and Speaking sections.

Distribution of Test Takers Across Levels

The bar graphs show what percentage of test takers are scoring at each specific level for Writing and Speaking. Reading and Listening graphs will have no data.

STAP WS - Distribution of Test Takers

Reading and Listening graphs will have no results but, will still have a placeholder.

Individual Reports

Access and download Individual Reports for test takers. For best results, wait until all testing and rating is complete.

How to access Individual Reports for one or all test takers

Create Individual Report for a specific test taker:

hotspot
  1. Click on the report icon to access the Individual Report for a test taker.
  2. Click on the Printer icon to print out the Individual Report (you can create a PDF version of the report if your printer selection includes a PDF writer).

Create Individual Reports for multiple or all test takers on the list:

  1. Click the box to the left of the test takers for which you wish to generate reports.
  2. Click on the Printer icon, then click on Individual Reports and then click on either All or Selected
  3.  Click on the Printer icon on the report.

Individual Report Example

STAMP WS Individual Report sample.

Individual Reports include the following sections and information:

  • Self-Evaluation Reading Section score (generated by Avant)
  • Writing Section score (rated by Avant)
  • Self-Evaluation Listening Section score (generated by Avant)
  • Speaking Section score (rated by Avant)
  • Composite Score
  • Level Descriptions
  • Suggestions to ‘Power Up’ to the next level

Self-Evaluation Reading and Self-Evaluation Listening sections will show a score generated by Avant once a test taker completes each section.

Writing and Speaking sections will show a scoring graphic. These inverted pyramids have a filled area that depicts the level attained in Writing and Speaking sections accordingly once rating is completed by Avant.

For the Writing and Speaking sections of the test, an additional shaded area will appear if the test taker had one response that rated at a higher level. This serves as an alert that the test taker is operating across a range of proficiency levels with this skill. This situation is quite common for test takers in the Novice and Intermediate ranges, mostly due to limited topic exposure and control.

Level Description field (the text to the right of scores) provides explanation of what test takers at each level are generally able to do.

Suggestions field provides Power Up suggestions to help test takers attain higher levels (see Avant Power Up Guide for more information).

If desired, the Individual Report can be distributed to test takers or parents, along with the Avant STAMP Benchmark & Rubric Guide.
