FISD students make grade on STAAR, TAKS results
By Richard Zowie —
Preliminary test results for Texas public school students’ educational proficiency are in, and local students overall received passing grades.
Official results won’t be released until later this year, possibly by August, Fredericksburg Independent School District officials said. Preliminary results don’t reflect accountability standards.
FISD trustees received the preliminary State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness and Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills for local students during the assistant superintendents’ reports at a recent meeting.
According to the preliminary results:
Local third graders for 2014 scored a 78 on reading, compared to the state average of 76. Third graders also scored 79 overall in math, nine points higher than the state average of 70.
In fourth grade, the reading score was 80 to the state’s 74. In writing, the fourth graders scored a 74 to the state’s 73. In math, the fourth graders scored 77, seven points higher than the state’s 70.
Fifth graders scored an 89 in reading, 13 points above the state’s 76, while scoring 12 points higher in math with a 91 to the state’s 79.
