Correlation of Hi. SET to Other Assessments Using Hi. SET Cut Scores to Identify

Correlation of Hi. SET to Other Assessments Using Hi. SET Cut Scores to Identify Proficiency Levels that Equate to Standards as Measured by College Placement Tests • We have linked the item pool we use for the Hi. SET to collegereadiness benchmarks used for the ACT in studies conducted by the University of Iowa. • Empirical data from these studies identifies the location on the Hi. SET scale that is consistent with ACT’s college and career readiness benchmarks in the various test areas. • Initially, we will use concordance tables that establish the relationship between ACT scores and COMPASS scores to establish a similar relationship between Hi. SET and COMPASS scores. • However, over time, ETS and the ITP/University of Iowa will work with Nevada to monitor the appropriateness of these readiness indicators for your college and workplace populations. • This process would involve collecting both COMPASS and Hi. SET scores for a sample of individuals. Copyright © 2013 by Educational Testing Service. All rights reserved. ETS, the ETS logo and LISTENING. LEARNING.
