Lets say for instance…
“If a student were assessed right now on a
skill, at what level would the student likely perform?”
Since a student’s grade on a standard/concept is
meant to be an indication of their level of understanding of that specific skill
(at that moment in time), then the Power Law formula can be used to calculate
grades. This calculation assists in showing the grading trend, as opposed to an
average of all the grades.
