Low Standardized Test Scores For New Mexico Elementary Students

Nov 10, 2015

Only around a quarter of New Mexico students in grade 3 to 8 met proficiency or better benchmarks for reading and writing on new standardized tests.

And less than 10 percent of the state's 8th graders met expectations or better when it came to math.

Those were the results from spring exams released recently by state Public Education Department officials.

Education Secretary Hanna Skandera says she expected scores to be lower since standards were raised. She called the results an "honest" assessment of how students are doing.
