Analysis: Tri Valley CUSD tops local peers with 58% of students passing annual tests
Tri Valley Community Unit School District 3 had the highest rate – 57.6 percent – of students locally who passed the annual state assessments this year, according to a McLean County analysis of Illinois State Board of Education data.
Of the eight districts in McLean County, Ridgeview Community Unit School District 19 had the highest rate of students in the state who fell below standards on the annual tests with 74.4 percent.
Statewide, 34 percent of students met or exceeded expectations. The remaining 66 percent did not meet, partially met or approached expectations.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assesses a student’s aptitude in math and English language arts for elementary to junior level of high school and is based on the Common Core State Standard principles. Illinois is one of eight states participating in PARCC as a means to measure a student’s preparedness for higher education.
The scores – a composite derived from the combined results of the Math and English tests – reveal whether a student is or is not ready for the next level. Student scores either “did not meet,” “partially met,” “approach,” “met” or “exceeded” expectations. Any student who meets or exceeds expectations is considered ready for the next level.
