HOW IMPORTANT ARE CRCT TESTS and SCORES?  

If students fail, most are still passed

Georgia 2008 CRCT scores

The Georgia Department of Education released official district and school-level results on the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests on June 23, 2008

Teachers, parents and students have been debating these tests since preliminary statewide scores showed large numbers of students failed the eighth-grade math test and social studies exams for grades six and seven.

Public school students in grades 1-8 are required to take the CRCT in reading, English and math. Students in grades 3-8 also take science and social studies exams.

Third-graders must pass the reading exam for promotion. Students in grades five and eight must pass the reading and math tests for promotion.

If 10 or less students took a test, the scores from those tests are listed as NA.

No passing CRCT score? No problem

Under state law, Georgia public school students are supposed to pass math and reading Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests in grades 5 and 8, and reading in grade 3. But an analysis by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found most schools promoted the majority of students who did not pass the tests in 2006 and 2007.

Here is the percentage of failing students promoted by school and by school district.
