A higher percentage of our students are scoring in the Does Not Meet the Standard/Performance Level 1 category than the State average in Science in all three grades.
Again, we are scoring lower than the State average in all three grades.
This test is only required for the 8th graders. However, we had the 6th and 7th graders take the assessment, too. Overall, 92% of our 8th graders achieved mastery/competency which is good. But, why did students in 8th grade perform so much better than the 6th and 7thgraders? Does anyone have an explanation?

Our goals: <br />To increase the number of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who meet or exceed the CRCT performance standards in science by a minimum of 3% by 2013.<br />To increase the number of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who meet or exceed the CRCT performance standards in social studies by a minimum of 3% by 2013.<br />To increase the number of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students achieving mastery/competency on the OAS Technology Literacy Test by 3% by 2013.<br />
How can we achieve these goals?<br />All classrooms now have 21st Century technology tools for teacher and STUDENT use!<br />
