S-G state test scores show high levels of proficiency

The New York State Education Department has released the results of statewide testing taken by students in grades 3-8 in April and May in both English Language Arts and mathematics.

Statewide, in ELA, 45.2 percent of all test takers in grades 3-8 scored at the proficient level (Levels 3 and 4). In math, 44.5 percent of all test takers in grades 3-8 scored at the proficient level.

Except on four tests, at least 46 percent of Scotia-Glenville students scored in the proficiency range – level 3 or 4 – on the state tests.

On four exams – grade 4 math (39 percent proficient), grade 7 ELA (44 percent proficient), grade 8 ELA (43 percent proficient) and grade 8 math (23 percent proficient) – student performance fell below that threshold.

This occurred at the same time that the statewide test refusal rate dropped to 18 percent, down from 19 percent in 2017.
