Medical Lake holds its own with results
Reports from the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction show fairly steady Measurement of Student Progress test results for the Medical Lake School District.
Math scores were mixed compared to last year, with a noticeable drop in fifth-grade results, with only 38.7 percent of students meeting standards. While that drop was significant, seventh-graders jumped up from 51 percent to 69 percent meeting standards.
Overall, reading showed a slight improvement across the board, with third, fourth and 10th grades hitting scores well into the 80 percent range.
Another marked improvement was in the End of Course Biology test, where scores jumped up to 86 percent from 71 percent last year.
