Test scores
Find out what state standardized test scores really tell you about a school – and what they don’t.

Worth a deeper look:

Test scores at this school are about the same as the state average, though still below the top-performing schools in the state. Because test scores in some states are so low, many students at this school may not be performing at grade level.


Parent tips

Ask the school what it’s doing to help students who are behind. Understand what on-track learning looks like, and ask the school what it’s doing to accelerate progress for students.

A worrisome sign:

This school is below the state average in key measures of college and career readiness.

(Remember: high graduation rates don't mean much if students are graduating without the coursework and test scores they need to succeed.)


Parent tip

Ask the schools what it’s doing to improve access to advanced classes and help prepare students for college entrance tests.
