Scores Down On Tougher Tests
Posted August 28th, 2013 @ 5:13pm

Test scores show that some Oklahoma school students are struggling with new rigorous assessments. State School Superintendent Janet Barresi on Wednesday released preliminary test scores to districts across the state. "Fifth and eighth grade writing and science, and in biology we saw a depression in those scores," she said. She's asking people to be patient, though. She calls the new tests a difficult process that will eventually lead to more opportunities and better lives for school children. Districts have 30 days to review the test scores before they are made public.
