California students scored better on this year’s state tests — but fewer than half met college readiness goals

The Los Angeles Times – Sonali Kohli, Joy Resmovits and Sandra Poindexter

“If the state’s revamped standardized tests are accurately measuring what they set out to measure, one thing is clear: California has miles to go before all of its students are on an equal footing to face an economy that increasingly demands a college degree and stronger workplace skills. The good news, if there is good news, is there’s improvement over last year. This is the second year the test results have been released to the public, and the first allowing for year-to-year comparison. Across the state, 48% of students met English language arts standards and 37% met math standards, according to the test results released Wednesday morning. That compares with 44% in English and 34% in math last year. That means that more than half of the test-takers in each subject still fell short.”(more)
