Posted on 06/25/2013
Results on the 2013 Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) for Floyd County Schools shows more students moving from the "meets" to "exceeds" level of curriculum mastery. This continues the trend of solid academic performance for the school system on the state test that measures student mastery of academic content in Georgia’s curriculum. 

The official statewide results of the CRCT were released today by State Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Barge.  The results show increases across all grade levels in the percentage of Floyd County students scoring at the exceeds level on the reading content-area. The percentage of students meeting or exceeding the standard continued to be above 90 percent in reading with all grade levels scoring between 93.9 percent for third-grade and 97.9 percent for eighth-grade.  The system increased the percentage of students scoring at the exceeds level in all grade levels for 2013.  Across all content areas and grade levels, Floyd County Schools increased the number of students exceeding the state standard in 22 out of 30 categories. 

“It is encouraging that our children are increasingly performing at the exceeds level on the CRCT,” said Superintendent Dr. Jeff McDaniel. “Our goal of improving the graduation rate and the quality of graduates leaving our schools begins with success in teaching and learning at the elementary and middle school grade levels.” 

Reading and English language arts were strength areas for Floyd students with all grade levels achieving above the 90 percent level of meeting or exceeding the standard. Scores also increased over last year’s system totals in four of the six grade levels on the math portion of the test and Floyd students outperformed the state at all grade levels in meeting and exceeding in math.
