Earlier this week the Cobb County School District released results of the latest Iowa Test of Basic Skills, which were taken in October.
Third graders’ average composite scores ranked in the 68th percentile, meaning that Cobb third graders scored equal to or better than 68 percent of all other U.S. third grade students who participated in the test.
Composite scores for Cobb fifth graders ranked in the 65th percentile and the district's seventh graders came in the 62nd percentile.
The latest test results also reflect how Cobb students are faring in grade equivalency measurements.
The figure before the decimal represents the grade level of the student’s performance, while the digits that follow the decimal represent the month within the grade.
A score of score of 7.2, for example, means the student’s performance was similar to that expected of a seventh grader taking the same test during the second month of school.
