Percent of Fifth Graders (2012-13) or Grades 3 to 8 Students (2015-2016) Meeting Basic Reading Proficiency
Kansas State Department of Education
Data represent academic years 2011-12 to 2015-16. From 2012-2013, data represent the percentage of 5th grade students in the top three performance levels on the reading assessment (exemplary, exceeds standard and meets standard). 2014 marked the first year that students transitioned to a new state assessment (English and Language Arts, or ELA) towards the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards (KCCRS). However, affected by computer system hacks, the 2014 test results were not released. 2015 and 2016 data represent the percentage of 3rd through 8th graders that met their grade-level performance standard in the ELA assessment.
