2017 ERB Results!

Written by Seth Pozzi on .

While Woodland Hills Private School is open to all students and not exclusively for gifted, talented and high achieving students, many families choose WHPS for the advanced and enriched academic program. Over the past few years, with the adoption of cutting-edge curriculum and enhanced teacher training, we have found new ways to help our high-achieving students reach new heights.

To that end, we were pleased this week to receive our students’ ERB results from the spring. This assessment compares our students to peers in private and independent schools across the country, and unlike the test children take in California public schools, the ERB uses a constructed response section to look at students’ thinking, not just multiple choice questions. Thus, it assesses critical thinking at a much deeper level.

Here are the results from this year’s graduating class:

LOGICAL THINKING: QUANTITATIVE REASONING, MATHEMATICS

  • 60% of our students scored in the 8th stanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally.
  • 87% of our students scored in the 7th stanine, which means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally.

 LITERACY: READING, WRITING, VERBAL REASONING

  • 53% of our students scored in the 8th stanine, which means they were in the top 11% of students who tested nationally.
  • 73% of our students scored in the 7th staninewhich means they were in the top 23% of students who tested nationally.                     

 Parents in grades 3-5 will be receiving their child’s individual ERB score report via email this week. Please watch for this email and don’t hesitate to contact the school office if you have any questions.
