The state Education Department has released the results of the April 2012 math and English assessments for third-through eighth-graders .
The Education Department reports that average scale scores on this year’s exams in both English and math are slightly higher than last year in most grades, and there is a small increase in the percentage of grades 3-8 students across the state who met or exceeded the proficiency standard on both exams.
Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. said next year's tests will be tougher, but he said he believes New York's teachers and students will rise to the challenge of higher standards for learning.
A searchable version of the complete report of all schools can be seen at www.p12.nysed.gov/irs/ela-math/2012/DistrictandBuildingAggregates-StateReport.pdf.
