North Fork students’ state math and English Language Arts proficiency scores rose slightly this year overall, according to results of last spring’s assessments for students in grades 3 through 8 released Wednesday by the New York State Department of Education.
Test scores for the mandated exams are determined by the state’s calculation of proficiency rates (the number of students scoring at levels 3 and 4).
Statewide, about 31 percent of students scored proficient in ELA and 38 percent scored proficient in math this year.
Six students from New Suffolk were eligible to take the test, but the state did not disclose whether the students took the tests, and if so, what their scores were.
