Whether it was reading, writing or arithmetic — or social studies or science — Bryan County students again fared well on Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests in 2013, the Georgia Department of Education announced Tuesday.
“We had increases in every grade level,” said Dr. Bradley Anderson, assistant superintendent for teaching and learning. “There were areas where we didn’t gain ground but we maintained. But a part of that is because when you’re already at 98 or 99 percent, it’s hard to move that 1 or 2 percent. But that’s our goal. That’s where we strive to be.”
Among the DOE’s findings was that Bryan County students improved in a majority of areas compared to last year.
Students in third through eighth grades take the CRCT, which tests their knowledge in reading, English/language arts, math, science and social studies. Local students made gains almost across the board and in every grade over last year, Anderson said.
