PSSA/KEYSTONE DATA

There are four buckets of scores: Advanced and Proficient are acceptable; Basic and Below Basic are less than satisfactory.

The state gives two sets of data for each test. One is for the entire school population.  The second set of data is for the Historically Low Achievers Group.  This group includes Economically Disadvantaged, English Language Learners and Special Education students.  Some of the students in this group score advanced.  

The next three charts compare the % proficient from 2015 through 2018.  First is English, followed by Math and then Science.
