Web Extra: Muscogee County CRCT results breakdown

From Muscogee County School District

Based on the fact that Adequately Yearly Progress (AYP) Performance Indicators focus on English Language Arts/Reading and Mathematics, our schools have specifically targeted those content areas for improvement in order to succeed in making AYP.

In doing this, our science scores have not increased at the rate we would like to see.   The four year trend in science CRCT scores for grades 3 – 8 are as follows:

MCSD CRCT Passing Percentages
Grade 3
         Science
         2008    2009    2010    2011
MCSD    68    72    73    68

As you can see, we have seen improvement in CRCT science scores over the last four years in grades 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th.

However, 3rd had no increase and 5th had a decrease.

It is important that we do a better job in science and find ways to balance the time spent on this content area as well as build better capacity in the integration of literacy standards in Science and Mathematics curriculum.
