SUBJECT: OAK GROVE SCHOOL DISTRICT TEST SCORES RISE
SAN JOSE – DISTRICT STUDENTS CONTINUE PROGRESS ON STATEWIDE TESTS
Students in the Oak Grove School District (OGSD) advanced in English and Math according to recently-release results from the 2018 California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). The exams are administered to all 3-8th grade students each year in the areas of Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA).
- In ELA, 54% of OGSD students met or exceeded standards. This represents a 4% increase from 2016-17. Our overall ELA results exceeded the state by 4%.
- All grade levels showed an increase in ELA results in comparison to 2017. The highest growth in ELA is grade 8 with +8%.
- In Math, 46% of Oak Grove students are meeting or exceeding the Math Standards. Our overall math results exceeded the state by 7%.
- All grade levels showed a maintenance or increase in math results from 2017. 5th grade showed the highest growth with a 5% increase.
This is the fourth year of the computer-based tests, which use California’s challenging academic standards. Superintendent, José Manzo was impressed with the continual growth that Oak Grove students continue to have, “These tests ask students to write clearly, think critically, and solve complex problems, as they will need to do in college and 21st century careers. These results could not be achieved without our staff’s dedication to rigor, relevance and engagement and the student’s hard work and perseverance.”
The District will be analyzing the data to help inform our instructional support for teachers and schools, target coaching supports and professional development plans to continue alignment to grade level standards.
