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

Very concerning:

Test scores at this school fall far below the state average. This suggests that students at this school are likely not performing at grade level.


Parent tips

Test scores are important to look at because they indicate where students are performing compared to grade-level standards. 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.

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.

Student progress
This rating measures how much students at this school improved from one year to the next, compared to students with similar proficiency levels at other schools in the state.

Very concerning:

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

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


Parent tip

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