Grade school 08

About 7 percent of Brooks Middle School students passed annual math assessments in 2017 and 93 percent of students failed, according to a South Cook News analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Brooks Middle School math scores, about 7 percent met expectations and none exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 24 percent approached expectations, while 37 percent partially met expectations and 33 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Brooks Middle School, which enrolled 419 students in 2017, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 31 percent of students passed the test and 69 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only five percent 'exceeded' expectations.
