STATE EXPERIENCES IMPROVED PERFORMANCE ON CRCT
Georgia’s elementary and middle schools saw improved performance on the majority of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (or CRCTs) taken this school year.
Results from the 2013 CRCTs reflect a one-year improvement in the percentage of students meeting and exceeding on 18 of the 30 content-area tests, with no change on seven tests and decreases in five tests, according to a release from the Georgia Department of Education.
State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge states, “Our results this year on the CRCT show consistent progress and we continue to see many students scoring in the exceeds category. This is a testament to the great work our teachers are doing to take students to higher levels of learning.”
State law requires that students in third-, fifth-, and eighth-grade meet or exceed expectations of the CRCT in reading in order to be promoted. Fifth- and eighth-grade students must also meet or exceed expectations on the CRCT in mathematics.
Floyd County and Rome City Schools both met or exceeded the state average on this year’s CRCTs. School-level results are expected to be released no later than July 10th.
