Missouri Test Results Drop for K-12 Public School Students

Preliminary statewide standardized test results show student performance declined last academic year for Missouri’s public school students. State information shows 45-percent of students met grade level in English Language Arts, 35-percent in Math, and 37-percent in Science. During a press conference, K-12 State Education Commissioner Margie Vandeven says student learning has been impacted by the pandemic in a variety of ways.

The largest drop was nearly 10-percent in Algebra One and the smallest declines were less than two-percent in English, grades four through eight and Math in grade eight.
