KS State Assessments Flat

Joe Denoyer - November 10, 2016 3:06 pm

A top Kansas education official says results of the 2016 state assessment tests were essentially flat, but he expects to see improvements in the future.
Education Commissioner Randy Watson reported on the results to members of the Kansas State Board of Education on Wednesday.
Those numbers show that 41.33 percent of Kansas students in third through 10th grades met or exceeded grade-level reading expectations in the spring, down from 42.02 percent in 2015.
The data also show that 34.44 percent of those students met grade-level math expectations for college and career readiness, up from 33.04 percent in 2015.
More students performed at the highest level in reading and math than in 2015, but there also were more students performing at the lowest level.
