On July 17, 2018, a cadre of North Dakota educators assembled under the direction of the American Institutes for Research to establish achievement level cut scores for the North Dakota State Assessments in English language arts (ELA) and mathematics. The methodology of bookmark standard setting was applied to establish the cut scores for assessments in grades 3 through 8 and grade 10. The methodology to establish the cut scores was reviewed by assessment experts on the North Dakota Technical Advisory Committee to affirm the credibility of the recommended cut scores. Beginning with the score results from the spring 2018 administration of the state assessments, the cut scores are approved and will be applied annually to the North Dakota State Assessments in English language arts and mathematics.
