Use the fields above, alone or in combination, to filter the records.

Examples:
cdts='x0162990252886' and eth=4 - for one school's Latino population.
or use rcdts='150162990252886' and eth=4 - for the same result but note that rcdts codes have changed in some regions like suburban cook schools. So cdts is better, just remember to cut off the first two digits that represent the region.
sex=2 and (eth=4 or eth=3) - for statewide male Latinos and Afr Ams. Note: querying large groups like this may take a couple minutes.
cdts in ('x0162990252886', 'x0162990252772', 'x0162990254244') and eth=4 - to compile three school's Latino populations.
cdts like 'x0162990%' and eth=4 - to compile all district 299 Latino population.
By clicking on the links below you will change the baseline year of the statewide data used to determine stanine cutoffs that normalize your data. For some purposes it makes sense to use the same baseline for all years of data. However for general purposes it is best to use the default behavior which is to calculate the stanine of each year's data with that year's statewide data.

Default Baseline (Current) - This is the recommended behavior that calculates each year's stanines from that year's statewide data.
2001 and 2006 Static Baseline - This will calculate 2001-2005 stanines against the 2001 statewide data and the 2006-present stanines against the 2006 statewide data.
xChi Baseline - This will calculate each year's stanines from that year's xChi statewide baseline data.

Statewide and CPS Baseline with Full Demographic Markers - This is the recommended behavior that calculates each year's stanines from that year's statewide data.
2001 and 2006 Static Statewide and CPS Baseline with Full Demographic Markers - This will calculate 2001-2005 stanines against the 2001 statewide data and the 2006-present stanines against the 2006 statewide data.

xChi Statewide with Full Demographic Markers - This calculates each year's stanines from that year's statewide data.
2001 and 2006 Static xChi Statewide with Full Demographic Markers - This will calculate 2001-2005 stanines against the 2001 statewide data and the 2006-present stanines against the 2006 statewide data.
These next two have been disabled, let me know if you need them back:
2006 Baseline - This will calculate each year's stanines against the 2006 statewide data.
2001 Baseline - This will calculate each year's stanines against the 2001 statewide data.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Why do the counts of students in some quartile and stanine groups have decimal values? How can there be a fraction of a student?
The reason there are decimals is to account for the fact that there are students just above and just below the given percentile may have the same scale score. So there is no clean break in determining the quartile or stanine boundary. To accomodate this in sub-populations, we look at the state data and take all students on the quartile or stanine cutoff score and assign a proportion to the lower quartile or stanine and the remainder (sometimes a decimal) to the next quartile or stanine. So in the sub-population we use this same proportion to distribute students who land on the quartile or stanine cutoff score, some student are counted towards the lower quartile/stanine and others to the next group. And often the result of the proportioning is a fraction of a student.

Why are there no cutoff scores or deduct values for composite scores?
Composite scores agreggate scores from all the grades available. Each grade has a different cutoff score so we don't use the cutoff scores to calculate this. See below for a note on how they are calulated.

How are Composites calculated?
Compostites are calculated based on the counts in each quartile, stanine, and academic standard group. The counts are totaled among all the grade levels and tests in the composite group, then the quartile, stanine, and academic standard percentiles are calculated based on the totals. This is essentially a weighted average of all the percentiles in the target group.
