About 60 percent of Cass Junior High School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2018 and 40 percent of students failed, according to a DuPage Policy Journal analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Cass Junior High School English language scores, about 45 percent met expectations and 15 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 27 percent approached expectations, while 9 percent partially met expectations and 4 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Cass Junior High School, which enrolled 292 students in 2018, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only six percent 'exceeded' expectations.
