Change In Test Standards Result In Lower Illinois Scores

The release of results on school performance will show a drop in the percentage of students passing the Illinois Standards Achievement test last school year.

The reason that the scores went down was mainly due to the state board of education's decision to toughen the grading scale for grade schools so it matches that used by high schools.

But if the old scoring method were still in use, more students would actually have made gains.   This year, only 62 of 863 districts achieved growth benchmarks set under federal No Child Left Behind law, down from 152 last year.
