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.

Student progress

Worth a deeper look:

Students at this school are making average academic progress given where they were last year, compared to other students in the state.

Average student progress (also known as student growth) means different things. In some states, the average progress is so low, a majority of students are not ready for college and career. It also depends on the school's test scores.

Average progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but keeping up with their peers.

Average progress with high test scores means... students have strong academic skills and the school is contributing to student learning at about the same rate as other schools in the state.


Parent tip

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to help students grow and reach their full potential.
