By East Central Reporter Reports | Jan 6, 2018


About 60 percent of Beecher City Grade School students passed annual math assessments in 2017 and 40 percent of students failed, according to a East Central Reporter analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Beecher City Grade School math scores, about 53 percent met expectations and 7 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 32 percent approached expectations, while 5 percent partially met expectations and 3 percent did not meet them. 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, 31 percent of students passed the test and 69 percent failed.

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