NH students show improvement on statewide assessment results

Granite State students participating in the 2015-16 statewide assessment program showed improvement in all test categories, according to Commissioner of Education, Virginia M. Barry.

The percentage of students meeting or exceeding achievement level benchmarks increased 3 percent in both English language arts/evidenced based reading and writing an mathematics.

For the first time, NH is providing accountability data for those schools and districts who are participating in Performance Assessment of Competency Education (PACE), integrated into the state-level overall accountability information.

"Rigorous comparability studies completed by the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment in Dover, NH show that assessment results produced by NH educators are as rigorous in evaluating student performance as state or national assessments," said Barry.

Eleventh-grade students also participated for the first time in the College Board's School Day SAT as a part of the statewide assessment program.
