By Local Labs News Service | Feb 27, 2018


About 37 percent of Geff Elementary School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2017 and 63 percent of students failed, according to a SE Illinois News analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Geff Elementary School English language scores, about 35 percent met expectations and 2 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 33 percent approached expectations, while 14 percent partially met expectations and 16 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Geff Elementary School, which enrolled 98 students in 2017, fell below state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only five percent 'exceeded' expectations.
