What should I do if a 4th grade student does not pass the reversal items in the Grade 4 item set?
This is a unique circumstance. When a 4th grade student reverses to the Grade 1 item set, he or she may receive an inflated score due to the easier items designed for 1st grade examinees. On pg. 59 of the updated Examiner's Manual, you will find the discussion and our recommendations on how to address this situation. The Grade 2 item set may be more appropriate in some circumstances.
