End-of-year marks and achievement test results in intermediate grade math and reading were linked to high-stakes test results at the secondary level. The results suggest that analysis of marks and test scores would alert educators to students who may be at-risk.

The discussion included professional development needed by teachers, principals, and school psychologists in order to make a research-based realignment of the curriculum and adjustments to the instructional program.
