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

Very concerning:

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.

Student progress

Good news!

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

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

High progress with low test scores means... that students are starting at a low point but the school is doing a great job at supporting their academic growth compared to most other schools.

High progress with high test scores means students have strong academic skills and the school is a doing an excellent job at supporting academic growth compared to most other schools.


Parent tip

Ask the school how it interprets this rating and what you can do to support the school's success.
