Testing Scores Up for Christian County Schools

 

cc board educationHOPKINSVILLE, KY (2/29/12) – Officials with Christian County Public Schools have released the latest EXPLORE and PLAN testing data. The results were presented during a Tuesday afternoon press conference and show scores are up this year.

The EXPLORE assessment is given to 8th grade students across the state. Locally, students at Christian County Middle, Hopkinsville Middle and North Drive Middle School took the test. When comparing the 2011-2012 academic year with the 2010-2011 year, all three middle schools showed improvement in every academic area. Some areas saw a point or higher increase over the previous year. Hopkinsville Middle School surpasses the state composite score by .2 of a point for the first time in history. The district composite score has risen .7 of a point from last year. Superintendent Brady Link commented on the EXPLORE results, “When everybody improves in every area, we’re very, very proud of that.”

The PLAN assessment is administered to 10th graders state-wide. Students from Christian County High and Hopkinsville High School took the test. When comparing this academic year to the previous year, both schools showed improvement. Hopkinsville High School demonstrated improvement in every academic discipline except math. HHS now scores at the state’s composite score of 17 (for the second time in history). Christian County High School also showed improvements in all academic disciplines. The district composite score has risen .5 of a point from last year.

Link says, “This is the best year we’ve ever had for improvement from one year to the next. We’ve had more improvement from last year to this year than we’ve ever had before. We’re very proud of that.” Administration of the EXPLORE, PLAN and ACT assessments was mandated by Senate Bill 130 in the 2006 session of the Kentucky General Assembly. The tests are designed to help schools focus on meeting academic standards across the entire secondary school program.
