State releases yearly check on student progress

SEATTLE -- Results of the state's yearly check on its goal of closing the proficiency gap among Washington state students by half for reading and mathematics have been released, and it shows there is work left to do.
Tallied at the state level, only one student sub-group is meeting goals so far. The statewide results show that Asian students are meeting the goals. No other group did.
The state has until 2017 to close the proficiency gaps among students of different races, ethnicities and income levels. The students tested in these results are in grades third through eighth and 10th grade.
The results of the "Annual Measurable Objectives" released Thursday also allow school districts and parents to gauge progress. Last year was the first year the state used this measuring system.
