L.A., Orange County Students Show Gains on Standardized Tests

Los Angeles County students continue to make modest gains on state standardized tests, although only half of them met or exceeded the state standard in English and less than half met or exceeded it in math, according to scores released Wednesday by the California Department of Education.

The performance of Los Angeles County students on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress tests generally mirrored that of students statewide, according to the department.

The CAASPP tests were administered in the spring to more than 3 million students across the state in grades 3-8 and 11.

In Los Angeles County, 21.73% of the more than 740,000 students who took the tests exceeded the state standard in English, up from 20.58% the previous year. According to the state, 28.48% met the standard, up slightly from 28.35% last year; while 22.65% “nearly” met the standard, down from 22.84% last year; and 27.14% failed to meet it, down from 28.23% last year.
