2015 MAP test results released

Students from five St. Charles County school districts generally scored higher than state averages in English, math and science according to the latest Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) test results released earlier this month.

The tests, administered in school districts throughout the state last spring, were based on Common Core learning standards in reading and math.  Common Core is considered by some to be a harder set of standards developed by a consortium of states.

Statewide, 59.7 students passed the English language arts test, 45.2 percent passed the math test, 56.7 percent passed science and 63.4 percent passed the social studies portion of the test.

The test was administered in English language arts and math for grades three through eight, science for grade five and eight, and algebra 1, English II, biology I and American government.

Locally, in the Francis Howell School District, 75.5 percent of students passed the English language arts test, 64.2 percent passed math, 76 percent passed science, and 80.9 percent passed social studies.

In the Fort Zumwalt School District, 72.7 percent passed the English language arts test, 59.2 percent passed math, 70.8 percent passed science and 83.9 percent passed social studies.

In all, 72.3 percent of students passed the English language arts test in the Orchard Farm School District, 56.4 percent passed the math test, 63 percent passed science, and 50 percent passed social studies.

Results also show that 65.9 percent of St. Charles School District students passed the English language arts test, 46.4 percent passed the math, 60 percent passed the science test and 49.1 percent passed the social studies test.

In Wentzville, 72.3 percent of students passed the English language arts test, 60.6 passed math, 71.2 percent passed the science and 75.1 percent passed the social studies test.

Only the social study results in the Orchard Farm and St. Charles school districts were below the statewide passing percentage.
