PVAAS:

Our student enrollment information has been uploaded to the PVAAS system to allow access to the PVAAS projections for students currently enrolled in your school. You can now search for students based on where they are currently enrolled rather than where they were last tested. You can now access the PVAAS Student Projection Reports and PVAAS Projection Summary Reports for students who: have changed grade levels, have changed schools (elementary to middle school, and middle to high school), and/or who are new to your local education agency (LEA). Please see the document titled, “What should educators know about PVAAS student probabilities?” on the PVAAS login page. Also, please review the e-Learning titled “Student Projections” and “Student Search & Custom Student Report” for additional information.
