How is the ADAM Total Score calculated?
The total score in the ADAM assessment is the sum of all the raw scores (skills) for the five strands of ADAM, which is then converted to a grade-level equivalency. This means it is weighted by the number of skills in each strand. Thus, the Numbers and Operation strand, which has 14 sub-tests, carries the most weight in the total score.

Note that raw scores increment with each skill mastered. So, for instance, the Fractions sub-test has a possible raw score of 0 to 26. This is because there are 26 skills that need to be mastered in the area of fractions. Mastery of each skill is done via 3+ questions testing each specific skill--i.e., adding fractions with unlike denominators, etc.

Finally, the grade equivalency is determined by what is expected to be mastered based on common math standards. ADAM, as you may recall, is a criterion-referenced assessment. Thus, scoring is based on each student's independent mastery of skills and/or concepts.

When you bring additional fields into a conversion, Quick Base often finds inconsistencies. For example, say you're converting your Companies column into its own table. One company, Acme Corporation, has offices in New York, Dallas and Portland. So, when you add the City column to the conversion, Quick Base finds three different locations for Acme. A single value in the column you're converting can only match one value in any additional field. Quick Base needs you to clean up the extra cities before it can create your new table. To do so, you have one of two choices:

  • If you want to create three separate Acme records (Acme-New York, Acme-Dallas and Acme-Portland) click the Conform link at the top of the column.
  • If the dissimilar entries are mistakes (say Acme only has one office in New York and the other locations are data-entry errors) go back into your table and correct the inconsistencies—in this case, changing all locations to New York. Then try the conversion again.
