Louisiana Education Dept.: 'LEAP'Mastery Dcores Hold Steady



 

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The state Department of Education says the percentage of Louisiana students demonstrating "mastery" of English language arts and math held steady in tests given this year.

And, there was a 2 percent increase in social studies mastery.

But officials said traditionally disadvantaged students — those from low income homes, black students and students with disabilities — continued to lag.

The department on Tuesday released the 2018 results from Louisiana Education Assessment Program testing.

Forty-three percent of students overall in grads three through 12 demonstrated mastery or better in English arts; 33 percent in math.

Social Studies testing for grades three through eight showed 27 percent of students earning a "mastery" score.
