Dist. 186 Officials: Standardized Test Results Skewed by Cut Score


Fewer District 186 students are meeting or exceeding the state’s standards in reading or math, but district officials say those numbers are misleading.

 

Springfield… and most other school districts… are seeing a sharp dropoff in those numbers because the state has changed the “cut score,” the number at which a student is considered to be in compliance with those standards.

 

Officials say if the same standard had been applied last year, the district would show an overall two-percent increase in test scores, with bigger gains among African-American and low-income students.
