Fillmore County schools, top to bottom


Fri, Sep 30th, 2011
Posted in Education

What if we compared all public schools at numerous grade levels in Fillmore County in the areas of math, reading and science? Which schools would stand out amongst their peers?

The 2011 Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment was released on September 14, 2011, making all reports available in Excel and PDF formats as a measure of public accountability to taxpayers by the Minnesota Department of Education.

For the sake of comparison, I performed the monotonous routine of a spreadsheet sort and filter with hopes of producing prevailing results. Throughout this article, the numbers tell a story about how each public school in Fillmore County is performing with Minnesota's standardized test.

Included are the rankings by grade level with respect to math, reading and science, starting with the highest average score down to the lowest average score per school district. Also, included are the number of students tested at each school, which plays a role in the game of averages. In addition, the statewide averages per grade within a subject are identified in bold and italics throughout the rankings.
