CPS releases ISAT scores

Data released by Chicago Public Schools on Tuesday show that the percentage of CPS students in grades three through eight that met or exceeded state standards on this year’s Illinois State Achievement Test dramatically decreased from last year, a result of state officials’ decision to raise the threshold for passing scores.

The Illinois State Board of Education also made revisions to the test this year to align 20 percent of the ISAT questions with the more rigorous Common Core State Standards.
