TEST SCORES: Des Moines Students Improving
The latest testing shows Des Moines students are making improvements in reading and math.
Every grade level improved with grade 11 seeing the biggest increase at 4.5-percent. Grades three through five increased 2.4-percent while sixth through eighth graders improved by just over one-percent.
Math scores also improved in all grade levels.
However, some students with disabilities, Asian students, Hispanic students and African-American students struggled in math.
The data was presented to the school board during Tuesday night’s meeting.
