New goals in math tests outlined for Virginia students

New goals in math tests outlined for Virginia students | Educational Literature | Scoop.it

Superintendent of Public Instruction, Patricia I. Wright will present to the State Board of Education the restructured math objectives she is calling "aggressive," as Virginia attempts to close the achievement gap between high and low performing schools and students.

 

Virginia officials proposed the changes after criticism that expectations were too low in the wake of expected poor results on new, more difficult math tests. On those tests, overall pass rates fell from 87% in the 2010-2011 school year to 68% last year.
