Another 30 percent approached expectations, 8 percent partially met expectations and 3 percent did not meet expectations. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Beecher City Grade School, which enrolled 134 students in 2017, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 34 percent of students passed the test and 66 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only five percent 'exceeded' expectations.
