PARCC Scores and Report Cards Released

Whether a student is considered proficient has also changed with the PARCC Under ISAT, there were four ratings, 2 were proficient, 2 were not. Under PARCC, there are five levels, 2 levels are proficient, 3 are not, with level three meaning a student is approaching standards and has demonstrated proficiency on some standards but maybe not every standard at the time the test was administered.

That said, 25% of Willow Springs School students met or exceeded the standards. This is lower than we expected. Statewide, 33% of students met or exceeded the standards. We also know that our students are not defined by a single test score. Our MAP scores, which we also started administering last year, indicate that 59% of our students met their goals and grew academically last school year.

We’re using the PARCC data as it was intended to be used – as a guide to inform curriculum decisions to strengthen our educational program for our children. This year, we began a new math program that teaches a deeper understanding of how math works. We’ve, also been focusing on the types of questions we ask our students to answer. We’re working to have students use multiple sources when answering some harder questions. Along with this, we’re asking our students to do more research, utilizing all the print and technology available in order to sharpen their critical thinking skills. We’re always looking to strengthen our program for your children.
