Test Scores Up in Glendale

According to the Los Angeles Times, more students in Glendale are meeting or surpassing their grade level requirements, according to data released Monday by the California Department of Education.

The growth is on par with the rest of the state, which saw its scores increase for an eighth consecutive year. State scores grew by about two percentage points to 52.3% in English language arts and 48% in math.

In Glendale, 66.7% students tested at or above proficiency on the English portion of the California Standards Test, an accountability exam that's intended to measure student skills at grade level.

The score improved from 64% last year and 59.6% in 2008, while math scores increased by more than 2% to 63.4%, up from 61% in 2009.

The California Standards Test is a central component that determines elementary and middle school Academic Performance Index, a measure that contributes to property values that is scheduled to be released Aug. 31. It also determines the API of high schools, but is weighed with other variables, like the exit exam.
