Schools

By East Central Reporter Reports | Jan 4, 2018


About 38 percent of Lincoln Elementary School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2017 and 62 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 Lincoln Elementary School English language scores, about 34 percent met expectations and 4 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 19 percent partially met expectations and 11 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 Lincoln Elementary School, which enrolled 342 students in 2017, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

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