State Item Data

For 2018-19, NC Check-Ins were built from statewide field tested items and the data are derived from a representative sample of students from across the state. This data differ from previous NC Check-In data, which were run after testing was completed and was only comprised of data from the schools that administered the NC Check-Ins.

Please note that comparing results to state-level results is not particularly meaningful. Different schools and classes may be at different places in covering the content based on testing windows and calendars. The purpose of the NC Check-Ins is to provide individual and classroom level formative feedback. Comparisons to other classrooms, schools, or local education agencies (LEAs) is neither encouraged, nor advised. The North Carolina Department of Public Instruction is providing the state-level report for general information purposes only. It would be a misinterpretation for an LEA to conclude that their students performed better or worse than another LEA or the state. The value in the NC Check-In results is for teachers to determine if their students have learned the content standards that were covered in their classrooms prior to the assessments.
