More NECAP Scores to be Released
State Education Commissioner Deborah Gist is releasing additional results from the standardized test known as NECAP. The report will include school-level data for all Rhode Island public schools, and comparisons to other New England states using NECAP.
At the end of February, the Rhode Island Department of Education released an abridged summary of NECAP results, revealing scores for seniors facing a new test-linked graduation requirement. The early release was intended to give schools and students time to prepare if they did not do well enough to earn a diploma.
The NECAP test of English, Math and Writing is administered to all Rhode Island 3rd-5th graders and 11th in October. Roughly 4,000 high School seniors who needed to improve their scores to graduate also took the test.
