OKLAHOMA MAKES MAJOR CHANGES IN TESTING AND THE RESULTS ARE IN

Results for the Spring 2017 are here. Grades 3,4,5,a nd 6 results were given to students on Wednesday (12/6/17) and

Grades 7,8,10, and US History scores were mailed.

You may see a drop in your child's scores.  A Quote from Oklahoma State Department of Education summarizes the situation.

 "We will see a significant drop in the number of students reported as Proficient or Advanced. The decrease does not mean students

are less skilled than last year or that a school is less effective."

 

There are three main reasons many students have lower scores:

    1.  In 2016 Oklahoma adopted more complex standards

    2. The higher standards resulted in more complex testing

    3. The complex testing resulted in higer-level performance scoring

 

The ultimate goal of the State of Oklahoma and its schools is to give students a competitive edge.

Wright City Public Schools is dedicated to preparing your children to become great problem-solvers,

strategic thinkers, and innovators of tomorrow.
