Kids score well in English, low in math in new Missouri test

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Most Missouri students scored at least proficient in English on a new statewide test last school year, while students in most grades scored lower in math.

The scores released Tuesday by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education are the first from a new assessment given in the spring.

Revised English and math standards based on the national Common Core guidelines for student learning were fully implemented for the first time last school year. The test was meant to gauge how well students are learning those new standards.

Between 55 and 59 percent of students in grades three through eight scored advanced or proficient in English.

Math scores ranged from a low of about 28 percent of some eighth-grade students scoring at least proficiently to 52 percent in third grade.
