About half of the 234,000 elementary and middle school students tested during the last school year were not at grade level in reading or math, state education officials announced today.
But a higher proportion of students were at grade level than in the previous year.
In math, 44 percent of students tested last spring were at grade level compared to 40.1 percent in spring 2015. On the English exam, which includes reading and writing, 55.7 percent of students tested last spring were at goal compared to 52.4 percent the previous year.
Education officials said the scores showed both how much progress had been made and how far the schools still have to go.
