Woodland testing shows students excel at math, strong at reading, science

New Jersey’s 2012 Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (ASK) testing for fifth through eighth grade shows Woodland School students passing the math, language/reading and science tests at a higher rate than the state average.

Woodland_School_3_no_dateIn sixth and seventh grade in particular, students beat the state average in proficiency and advanced proficiency.

In all categories in all years, the percentage that passed the test — the combined number of students who scored proficient or advanced proficient — was better than the state average.

Other than in sixth- and seventh-grade math, however, Woodland had a much higher proficient score than the state average, but had a lower percentage of students scoring advanced proficient.
