Sure, it’s the start of the new school year. But it’s never too early to start thinking about graduation – and about what students must do before they can march to the tune of “Pomp and Circumstance.”
To better prepare students and their teachers for that day, the Department of Education’s released the results of last year’s California High School Exit Exam.
In California it’s a must – if you’re in public school and want to graduate, you have to pass the CAHSEE – the California High School Exit Exam. That’s why students start getting tested in the 10th grade.
It appears that statewide, most students are on track to turn the tassels on their mortarboards by 2014.
Here’s the statewide breakdown:
• 84% of students statewide passed the Math portion of the exam
• 83% of students statewide passed the English Language Arts portion of the Exam
