state test scores by district

While we wait for individual (check your personal aris link in a couple of weeks) and school wide scores to be entered online. We have some district wide scores. As reported they are way down to compensate for what the Board of Regents felt was grade inflation next to NY State's national progress. While the 3rd, 4th and 7th grade 3s and 4s scores are way down, when you separate out the kids scoring at level 4 (above grade level) are almost all up by a bit. Interesting. So perhaps if you have a student who regularly scores high, maybe you can sleep a little easier until your individual scores come out.
