The Georgia Department of Education has released the 2012 results of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests.
The CRCT, taken annually by students in the 3rd through 8th grades, is a gauge that shows if schools are meeting academic goals, and if not, where improvement is needed.
Statewide, the percentage of 3rd-grade students who exceeded the standards in 2012 compared with 2011 increased by:
- 7 percent in Reading
- 3 percent in English/Language Arts
- 3 percent in Math
- 3 percent in Science
- 4 percent in Social Studies
These school-by-school results follow the state DOE’s release of district-by-district results last month. To find the full list of school results, go to the DOE’s link here.
