Statewide test results: 84 percent of Chester 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 Chester Elementary School math scores, about 16 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 33 percent approached expectations, while 32 percent partially met expectations and 20 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.
