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.
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.
