Missouri's Annual Performance Reports Released
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) has released the results of the Missouri Assessment Program tests. The full release and results can be found at this link on the DESE website.
You can also find a district-by-district breakdown of the scores in a PDF here.
According the DESE, "MAP test scores and other performance measures are used to develop school- and district- level Annual Performance Reports (APRs). The APR, the foundation for Missouri's accreditation requirements for public school districts, provides an update on how schools and local education agencies are meeting state education standards in five areas: academic achievement, subgroup achievement, college and career or high school readiness, attendance, and graduation rate. APRs will be released later in August."
Regarding the results in today's report DESE says student achievement held steady in communications and increased in science.
