STAMP 4S Score Interpretation Guide

Interpreting the Reading and Listening Score Ranges: Level and Scaled

Benchmark Levels are grouped by major levels (Novice, Intermediate and Advanced). Within each major level are three sub-levels that are aligned to the ACTFL Proficiency Guidelines. Scaled Scores provide additional breakdown within each sub-level.
Scaled Scores can be helpful to track incremental progress when doing pre and post testing. Note that for the Scaled Scores there is approximately +/- 10 point standard error for an individual test taker’s results. This should be kept in mind when comparing student scores or when comparing student performance to the cut scores for various proficiency levels.
Due to the low number of tests taken in 2019-2020, averages for Avant STAMP assessments are not available for this time period. We expect to be able to update this reporting for 2021 when available.
Currently, Scaled Scores are not available for English, Italian, Polish, Russian, or Chinese Traditional (Reading). We plan to provide Scaled Scores for these languages in the 2021-2022 school year if there is adequate data available for a specific language.
