Where they failed

July 02, 2011

Results of the 2011 Maryland School Assessment tests for grades 3 to 8 were released Wednesday.

This included math and reading results for 32 elementary and middle schools in Washington County Public Schools. Results for Hancock Middle-Senior High School won't be available until High School Assessment results are released later this summer because the school is a joint middle and high school.

Wednesday's release included data on whether schools, student subgroups and grade levels met Adequate Yearly Progress goals set for the 2011 school year.

Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) is based on the percentage of students who score at or above the proficiency level on Maryland School Assessment Tests.
