|Test scores, accreditation released|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Holyoke School District’s 2014 Transitional Colorado Assessment Program results for reading, writing and math have been released. The subjects of science and social studies are part of the Colorado Measures of Academic Success given for the first time in the spring of 2014, and those results are not available at this time.
The district met or exceeded the state average of proficient and advanced students on 10 of the 24 tests released. In recent years, the district has fluctuated between 9-12 of 27 tests given, so the 2014 scores are very much in line with results in recent years.
Results come in two categories: status and growth. The status scores are the percentage of students who score at the proficient or advanced levels. Students also receive growth scores which show the amount of improvement from one year to the next compared to other students who started at the same point.
Superintendent Bret Miles said, “There is a great deal to celebrate this year. Four out of seven of our reading growth scores are the best we have ever had in the district since growth scores were introduced in the state six years ago.”
