Lanseboro School Board discusses test results

Posted in Education

At its regular meeting on November 20, the Lanesboro school board discussed the results of 11th grade scores on math in MCA state standard testing, with scores falling slightly below a statewide average of 30-percent. Seventh and Eighth graders did better on reading evaluations as a result of increased time dedicated to reading and language arts in the classroom.

Conversation followed about how to improve math performance. High School Principal Brett Clarke pointed out areas of concern. The result of tests taken in April are not completed and released until September, which leaves any changes in texts and teaching one year behind. He suggested that there is a computer sample testing program available that is specific and is scored immediately so adaptations can be made in a more timely manner. Text books that are purchased are often written and geared toward teaching to the tests but these texts are not always the best for comprehensive information. Teachers may offer supplementary materials and helpful internet resources to augment the current text books and curriculum to improve the students overall educational experience.

• The winter holiday break will begin at 11:15 a.m. on December 23 and students will return on January 5th.
