Statewide test results: 83 percent of Bluford students failed math
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 Bluford Grade School math scores, about 17 percent met expectations and none 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 30 percent approached expectations, while 38 percent partially met expectations and 16 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Statewide, 31 percent of students passed the test and 69 percent failed.
