2018 Milestones Results

posted Aug 8, 2018, 6:44 PM by Tobie Jones   [ updated Jan 17, 2019, 5:10 AM ]

Dear Students, Parents, Faculty, Staff, and Community Members,

In this week’s Jackson Herald, the headlines include a story summarizing the results from the 2018 Milestones End of Grade Assessments and the 2018 End of Course Test results. Though the results were reported accurately for the End of Grade (Grades 3, 5, and 8), the results were NOT reported accurately for the 2018 End of Course Test results at Commerce High School.

Commerce High School is on a 4x4 traditional block schedule which means that students earn a full year of credit each semester. The results reported in the newspaper only tell part of the story. I can only assume that the newspaper pulled their results from the Department of Education website (which only reports results from spring semester). Please find below the accurate overall (year-long) results for Commerce High School.

  • Ninth Grade Literature- 11% of students scored at Level 1 (14 of 133) NOT 19.6%

  • Algebra I- 22% of students scored at Level 1 (31 of 144)

  • American Literature and Composition- 13% of students scored at Level 1 (16 of 122) NOT 22.8%

  • Biology- 19% of students scored at Level 1 (18 of 96) NOT 30.9%

  • Economics- 17% of students scored at Level 1 (15 of 87) NOT 18%

  • Geometry- 10% of students scored at Level 1 (8 of 82) NOT 25%

  • US History- 23% of students scored at Level 1 (27 of 120) NOT 44%

We understand that we still have work to do at every grade level; however, our students and faculty/staff members/administrators are working too hard to report inaccurate data. Please let me know if you have questions.

Sincerely,

Joy R. Tolbert

Superintendent
