It would have been helpful to include in the article the reforms the Education Trust-Midwest is proposing. Also, based on the photo I assume that students' Spanish literacy is improving?

Hello Jack, we included a link to the Education Trust-Midwest report that has numerous examples of states, and individual Michigan schools, who are making progress.

Would like to know what the New Standard Academy did differently from all the others to make such a tremendous increase in reading skills for their students. Is this an anomaly or did they implement some new program that really works? They are about the only school in Genesee County that made a real improvement. Also the figures seem to show that most schools improved between 2014-15 and 2015-16 but dropped back to initial rates or worse the next year. What the heck is going on?

The significant drops seen in many of these percentages over one year periods should make one suspicious that something happened effecting them. Kids just don't become that much uniformly dumber in one year!

As a teacher educator, these kinds of comparisons really bother me. Declining scores in most schools in the state, across every demographic, tells me more about issues with testing than with our students. This big a discrepancy from last year to this has me wondering about the equivalence validity of the two tests--in other words, did they truly test the same skills in the same way? Such wild swings of scores from year to year in many schools also indicates problems with the test or statistical analysis. Was it more difficult this year? Was it the same test as in previous years? Were equivalent groups tested--in other words, was the population that took the test demographically similar to the ones in the the years before? And what does it mean that other states delivered "similar tests?" Were item difficulty scores the same across other states' tests?

At the very least, we should be looking at trends across several years instead of panicking when all scores drop in one year. That's a disservice to our teachers and students.

These are very good questions. The student population taking the tests are identical - the tests were given to all third-graders, not a survey of third-graders. We are looking at a trend over three years, not an individual year's scores. We can't look at more years than three because this test has only been used in Michigan for three years.

I understand your concern about this being a disservice, but I have to disagree for one major reason: In two years, this same test is going to be used to determine how many third-graders are being retained in grade; a trend of decline in proficiency needs to be noted now so the state isn't facing a crisis of 30,000 third-graders suddenly failing.

These three columns represent three different groups of students. I'd like to know where these students tested when arriving at school day 1 measured against their scores in 3rd grade, a growth measure if you will. That is the only significant measure of individual student achievement.
Furthermore, a proficiency number just reveals who crossed an arbitrary bar and "made it." How many students were just below the bar and with some help could have crossed that proficiency bar also? A single statistical number is great for the math-challenged but reveals little. One must go deep into the numbers to find out more about what is actually occurring regarding reading instruction and back up at home with parents or guardians.
I know I'm a math guy who only spent 40 years in education. So, what do I know.

I'm sure you know a heck of a lot, Bob. Your points are well taken. Our point would be this: this test, measuring proficiency, is going to be used in two years to determine which third-graders are retained in grade. It's important to increase public awareness of the issue. As to your point about diving deeper into the data behind the proficiency percentage, I'm hoping that's exactly what they are doing in MDE now. Thanks for reading.

Michigan ranks 47th in the nation in the ratio of students to school librarians. Only 8% of our students' school have access to a full-time school librarian (also called media specialist) and only 18% have access to a full or part-time school librarian. Yet, multiple studies show that access to a school librarian significantly improves student reading (and other) achievement. A Michigan study showed that schools with (certified) librarians have 35 percent more fourth graders who score proficient or above than school without (certified) librarians. See this document for details on studies/data: http://bit.ly/evidSLMS. If Michigan truly has a commitment to improving literacy in our state, Michigan must support school libraries and student access to certified school librarians.

Is this using the original passing is 75% correct, or the "improved" 60% correct. I remember when they pulled this switch on the MEAP to make things look better. Is that still the case.

This data leaves out that "Satisfactory" rubric.
