Local Scoring Tool

The Local Scoring Tool (LST) is a Web-based application that calculates CELDT raw scores, scale scores, and performance levels. This application can be used on commonly available Internet browsers (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer 9.0 and higher, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, and Google Chrome) to quickly and easily score the CELDT at the local level.

The 2016–17 Edition of the software can:

  • Export calculated scale scores and performance levels into a spreadsheet (CSV format) for use by LEAs
  • Produce a printable Preliminary Local Student Score Report

Tips for Using the Local Scoring Tool (PDF), the LST Tutorial and and a LST Excel Template (XLS) are available to assist districts in using this dynamic tool.

Important: Use the LST only for the 2016–17 Edition of the CELDT.
The 2015–16 Edition of the LST is no longer available.
