More Than Half Of NC Students Pass Year-End Tests

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- New results show most North Carolina students earned passing marks on reading and math tests after state officials changed the requirements.


The results released Thursday by state officials show that about 56 percent of students in grades 3-8 scored high enough on end-of-grade tests to be considered proficient in reading. In math tests, about 51 percent of students were considered proficient.


The results reflect a change approved in March that expands the criteria for students to be considered proficient. Because of change, some students who would have been previously labeled as failing to meet grade-level requirements are now considered as having sufficient skills to advance to the next grade.


Last year under the old standards, less than half of students in grades 3 through 8 scored in the proficient range.
