AssessmentsAssessments

Students in grades 3-8 and high school participated in the PARCC assessments in English Language Arts and Mathematics. PARCC complements, but does not replace, the existing Maryland School Assessment, which assesses performance in science in grades 5 and 8; the Alternate Maryland School Assessment (for students with disabilities); or the Maryland High School Assessments in Biology and Government. In addition students take other assessments such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress and college Readiness tests like AP and SAT. Students who are identified as English learners also take an annual English language proficiency assessment.

graduationGraduation

Maryland reports on the progress students make towards graduation and their plans post-graduation. Federal law requires that Maryland use an adjusted cohort graduation rate and dropout rate. These adjusted rates ensure that all students who enter 9th grade together are accounted for at the end of three, four or five years.
