Verona Students Improve on HSPA Scores

The Verona School District has seen a decrease in students who are partially proficient which means an increase in students who are proficient or advanced proficient.

The Verona Board of Education reviewed a preliminary report on district testing results for the 2011-2012 school year, during its Tuesday night public meeting.

The district has seen a decrease in kids who are partially proficient on the High School Proficiency Assessment (HSPA), said Forte.

“We always look to have a zero but we brought our number down,” he said. “Any percent decrease is a good thing.”

Decreasing the number of partially proficient students means that more students were in the proficient or advanced proficient categories, which signals an improvement in test scores.

“It's a preliminary test report,” said Forte. “In the spring when the rest of the data is realesed we will provide a more comprehensive report.”

The full district testing report is attached.
