Preliminary TAKS Results Show Students Faired Well
Preliminary Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) results are in and, once again Coppell ISD ranks at the top. Overall, students show success in the area of Social Studies, where 100% of “All Students” Met Standard in 8th and 11th grade and 99 percent of 10th graders Met Standard. Commended scores were 77%, 83%, and 69% correspondingly. Ninety-nine percent of “All Students” also Met Standard in 8th, 9th, and 11th grade Reading and 7th grade Writing. Commended scores in each of these areas were 75%, 55%, 60%, and 68% respectively. Commended scores mean students mastered the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) curriculum with a score of 90% or above.
“We are very proud that our preliminary results show that our students scored so well on the state assessments. Most impressive is the percentage of our students who performed at the Commended level. This is due to the hard work of our students, the level of support we receive from our parents and the community, and the high quality of our teachers. However, we consider this level of achievement as just the beginning for Coppell ISD as we strive to be the ‘Best of the 21st Century,'” noted Rhonda Carr, Director of Assessment and Accountability.
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) will announce preliminary accountability ratings on July 30, 2010 which include not only TAKS performance, but other indicators such as graduation rates and Gold Performance Acknowledgements.
