But that trend does not apply to IUSD, says Irene Brady, the district’s coordinator of assessment and evaluation.
“We have improved over time, but most dramatically in the last two years,” Brady told IUSD NewsFlash. “Additionally, it seems the largest increase was seen in writing.”
Indeed, district writing scores on the famed college entrance exam jumped a whopping 24 points since 2006, while math and critical reading scores spiked by 17 points and 14 points, respectively.
Here’s a look at how IUSD students performed on all three portions of the test, along with averages from California and elsewhere across the country:
