About 13 percent of Barack H. Obama Learning Academy students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2017 and 87 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 Barack H. Obama Learning Academy English language scores, about 12 percent met expectations and 0.6 percent 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 26 percent approached expectations, while 30 percent partially met expectations and 32 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 Barack H. Obama Learning Academy, which enrolled 477 students in 2017, fell below state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

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