For the fourth year in a row, students across Georgia posted gains on the state’s standardized tests, or CRCTs. The scores released by the Department of Education Thursday show that third through eighth graders are performing better on nearly every test subject and grade level.
Some Georgia schools have added security measures for a high-stakes test this month. Students statewide are taking the Criterion Referenced Competency Test. The state is sending test monitors into schools previously suspected in cheating scandals. Atlanta schools have the most serious charges and security.
