Do you know what the top possible scores are in each category?

Hi Leslie, The numbers above are percentages - so all out of 100. This is the percentage of students in each grade and each subject that scored at or above state standards for proficiency. Does that answer your question? Sorry, I know it's a little confusing.

In other words, for 8th graders, who scored the following, it means. Math 27.9 28.3 32.5 Reading 63.4 58 65.7 Science 13.1 14.1 15.9 so 77% of Dearborn students could not meet the state math requirements. So 87% of Dearborn students could not meet the state Science requirements. That is using Jessica's interpretation of the numbers as confirmed in the article. Time to institute teacher pay with the merit system, and right now the merit is not very high according to the state of Michigan. The teaching concept needs to be rethought. Perhaps we can drop the farm mentality, teach kids year round like the rest of the civilized world , and move up in the world rankings, instead of dropping , like now we are 34th in math. What are other countries doing differently that produce much better results? Education is taken seriously. Until we drop the farm mentality , that will not happen in the USA. Teachers need a benchmark to be held to, and it is not happening . This is a bench mark of sorts, and what is the reaction? Indifference........ I bet the Montessori kids were the ones causing the grades to be on the high side, those kids plus the home schooled ones. Who always wins the spelling bees.? Home school kids. If parents don't really care, then what will initiate a change? Parents and choice with their wallets, that's what. Good results get the kids and the state bucks, simple as that. Competition.
