The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.
According to Alwood Middle/High School English language scores, about 45 percent met expectations and 19 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.
Another 27 percent approached expectations, while 10 percent partially met expectations and none did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.
Test results at Alwood Middle/High School, which enrolled 199 students in 2018, surpassed state averages.
Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.
Of students statewide who passed, only six percent 'exceeded' expectations.
