State Test Scores Delayed until November
The N.C. Department of Instruction has delayed reporting the 2012-13 Common Core State Standard test scores to the N.C. State Board of Education until November. The scores originally were to be released in October. The new state tests were aligned to the first year of the new Common Core State Standards and N.C. Essential Standards curricula.
NCDPI will send home individual students' test reports in November and publish school growth scores online later, at a time yet to be determined. Tammy Howard, NCDPI director of accountability, answers questions about the new tests and score reports in this article, entitled "What do N.C. Common Core Test Results Reveal?"
