The "truth" is not somewhere between the claims of Willingham and those of the experts and UNC. Willingham is completely wrong; she reported the "age normalized or standard values" as being "estimated grade levels". The normal distribution (or "bell curve") is the basis for most statistical analysis. A standard value is based on the percentage of those in some reference group who made less than that raw value, reported as the value with that same percentile on a normal distribution specified by its M and SD (mean and standard deviation). Examples: IQ (M=100, SD=15), SAT Verbal (M=500,SD=50), SATA (M=10,SD=3). Always on a normalized scale, 17% of the scores will be less than (M-SD); 3%, 2 SD. For SAT Verbal those 450 and 400; for SATA, 7 and 4.
SATA standard values are age dependent. Thus the 10 means higer than half those your age, not grade 10. For someone 18, the RV of 14 is a SV of 10 and a grade equivalent of 13 (college freshmen).
Just as SV is age based, estimated grade level is based on the median raw score (M) for students in that grade. GLs for SATA are valid for 10-16, below 10 estimated by just extending the trend lines. Roughly 60% percent of the at risk group had estimated grade levels of 12 and above.
Now about those who Willingham claimed read like three year olds? While they were not reading below grade 4, they were still in that lowest 3% with scores more than 2 SD below the mean (or less than 400 SAT V).
With only 25 questions, the standard values are very sensitive to slight differences in age or the answer to one question. Those with LDs often score far lower on the timed vocabulary subtest than on the reading comprehension subtest which is not time limited.
Those with SAT V less than 450 will need remedial English and a lot of support, but all made above 400. That and the reforms are encouraging signs.
McAdoo. I wonder if he ever learned that it was Willingham who had turned him and Wiley in for cheating?

Implying "keep it classy" is anything near the buttmad rage he drops on any other fanbase when something is said about his goddess Dean.

Then you missed his post in the thread where he said
Keep it Classy UNC fans, you don't want to be in the same SS Classless boat as DoltSAC, KatY, Hal, Nips, Pwnt, and others...

Wait, you actually didn't miss it because you responded with
smitty is butthurt and whining about NC State posters when his ilk clearly do the same thing in the same thread.
You must have just forgotten. They say that the mind is the second thing to go.
