Georgia 8th Grade CRCT Scores, 2008 – 2014: What do they mean?

Latest Story

Here are a few tables and graphs that tell a story about testing in Georgia since 2008.  Using state data, I assembled a few graphs and charts for your use and interpretation.

Table 1. This a table showing scale scores on the state CRCT test in reading, English language arts, math, science, and social studies.


Chart 1: Scatter Plot of the same data.  Note the trend in each subject.

ImageChart 2. Line Graph showing the trends that are obvious in each subject.


Question: What can we make from the table and two charts?  Are teachers helping students learn the core subjects?  Or is the state in free fall, with schools failing.
