City students make gains in Common Core exams

  // Wednesday, 13 August 2014 09:06 //

Despite persistent alarm bell-ringing over the implementation of tough new standards, city students made considerable gains in math – and smaller gains in reading – on the state’s challenging 2014 Common Core exams, new results show.

Proficiency rates for city kids in grade three to eight rose by 4.4 percentage points in math — from 30.1 to 34.5 percent — and by 2 percentange points in reading, from 27.4 to 29.4 percent.

City kids also gained ground on their peers in the rest of the state, where overall proficiency rates edged up only slightly since last year, to 35.8 percent in math and 31.4 percent in reading.

“This is still a transition period. It will take time before the changes taking place in our classrooms are fully reflected in the test scores,” cautioned State Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch.
