School Achievement Scores Stagnate

As the new school year begins, education achievement test results from last year showed few gains statewide, and some slippage.

In grades three through seven, fewer than half of students tested as “proficient” or “advanced” in reading. Only 35 percent of fifth through seventh graders tested as “proficient” or “advanced” in math. Fewer than 20 percent of fifth graders tested as “proficient” or “advanced” in social studies.

State Superintendent Michael Rice cautioned that achievement tests are “snapshots” that reflect “only a very small portion of a student’s education.”

A recent ranking by “U.S. News and World Report” placed Michigan’s K-12 schools 29th in the nation.
