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

A worrisome sign:

Test scores at this school fall below the state average. This means that most students at this school are not 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 explore higher-performing schools in your area to find the best opportunities for your child to succeed.

Student progress

Very concerning:

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

Depending on the school's test scores, student progress (also known as student growth) means different things.

Very low progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point and falling even farther behind their peers.

Very low progress with high test scores means... students have strong academic skills but that the school is not contributing to student learning as much as other schools in the state.


Parent tip

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and how it might use this information to improve its programs.
