Rochester students show gains in math, ELA proficiency

Students in the Rochester City School District demonstrated the highest levels of proficiency in five years on New York state exams in math and English language arts, according to information from district officials.
 
The 2018 assessment results showed the following:
 
• Proficiency in ELA among students in grade 3-8 was 11.4 percent, compared to 5 percent in 2013.
 
• Proficiency in math was 10.7 percent, compared to 5 percent in 2013.
 
• The greatest gains in ELA proficiency were seen in grades 3 and 6, with an increase of 6.2 percentage points and 8 percentage points, respectively, from 2017 to 2018.
 
• The greatest gains in math proficiency were in grades 3 and 4, with an increase of 4.1 percentage points and 4.2 percentage points, respectively, from 2017 to 2018.
 
The scores show that the district’s hiring of additional reading teachers and math interventionists, as well as monitoring of student progress every five weeks, is proving effective, Superintendent Barbara Deane-Williams said in a statement.
