Definition and Source
Percent of total public school students enrolled in Grades 4 and 8 scoring at the “proficient level”
(i.e., Levels 3 and 4 combined) on the ACT Aspire test in mathematics and reading. Level 3 and 4 scores are defined as those which meet or exceed benchmark scores for the specified subject and grade level. Students who exceed benchmark scores are considered on target for college readiness by the time they reach the 11th grade.
Special tabulations provided by the Alabama State Department of Education.
Test scores prior to the 2013-14 school year were based on percent of public school students enrolled in Grade 4 scoring at Level Four on the Alabama Mathematics Test (ARMT). Level 4 scores are defined as those which “exceed academic content standards.”
