First things first: You can find out how your state, county, district, school and/or grade did on California’s 2009 spring standardized tests by clicking here.
If you want schoolwide scores (rather than grade by grade) for Oakland, you’re in luck. Once again, the Oakland school district’s number crunchers have come through by compiling a very readable and informative spreadsheet that looks at results, by school, for English language arts and math.
The right half of the spreadsheet shows the percentage of students who showed proficiency in math or English, as well as the percentage-point change from last year. (Green is good. Red is not.) The left half shows the percentage of kids who scored poorly on the tests.
As you can see, most of the elementary school’s scores improved, once again. This year, many of the middle schools did, too; check out the math scores for West Oakland Middle School and Cole.
There’s so much information, it’s a bit overwhelming. What caught your eye?
