New Testing Data: Kentucky Schools Show Improvement Over Last Year

According to new data on state assessments, Kentucky students are making progress in basic subjects like reading and math.  In the second year of the Unbridled Learning testing system, overall student performance showed improvement from 2012. 

“The statewide data clearly show we are making progress, though slower than we would like,” said Kentucky Education Commissioner Terry Holliday in a news release. “We’ve raised expectations and aligned them with what students need to be successful; we are moving in the right direction toward the goal of providing a world-class education for every Kentucky student and ensuring all children graduate college/career-ready,” he said.

Here are some of the  scores within the WKU Public Radio listening area.

Bowling Green city schools rank Proficient with an overall district total of 60.0 out of 100 while Warren County schools are classified as Needing Improvement with a total score of 58.3

The Elizabethtown Independent school district gets the top ranking of Distinguished at 64.3 as the overall score while Hardin County schools come in at Proficient with a total ranking of 58.4.
