    This is bad policy. The reason EOC’s and other STARR test are not scaled 0-100 is the state population is to large to be able to run the statistics necessary to provide a valid and reliable criterion refernced test using this scale. Attempting to deconstruct the statistics generated by scale scores is inherently unreliable and problematic. We already have the most norm referenced criterion referenced test conceivable. Attempting to convert scale scores to a 100 point scale is at the least a logical fallacy… an illusion at the worst a lie.
