Capital Region elementary school test scores

chalk on chalk board ledgeThe state Education Department released results from the English and math proficiency tests for grades 3-8 this week.

So, we pulled out the results for Capital Region school districts. A compact, easy-skim version is after the jump -- with links to more detail. (If you want a school-by-school breakdown, NYSED makes that available, too.)

On to the data, some of which are sobering...

A few things before we dive in:

+ Scores are down considerably this year because NYSED changed the cut off points for what's considered passing (levels 3 and 4). [NYT]

+ The numbers below represent the percent of all the students (grades 3-8) who took the tests in each school district that passed. Obviously, that's a bit blunt -- the links that follow each county breakdown have grade-by-grade and test-by-test detail.

Thanks for the school-by-school breakdown link...most helpful.

Just followed another link you've posted at the end of the article. If you want to have some real fun add another column to the charts above with the English & Math scores- "per-pupil spending". Whoa.

@EAC: For even more fun, don't use the officially published per-pupil tally. (Which is "adjusted" by subtracting many capital and other expense) Take the total budget of the district, and divide by the student body.

Leaf Peeper Porter - a rich, malty dark beer nicely balanced by a touch of local apple cider (pre-fermentation for nice dry cider notes), ginger, cinnamon, and locally grown hops to brighten everything up. Basically, a rich dark beer finished with a nice apple-y fall crispness, perfect for fall in the Capital Region!
