By Local Labs News Service | Jan 20, 2019


About 13 percent of Riverton Middle School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2018 and 87 percent of students failed, according to a Sangamon Sun analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Riverton Middle School English language scores, about 12 percent met expectations and 1 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 28 percent approached expectations, while 28 percent partially met expectations and 31 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Riverton Middle School, which enrolled 415 students in 2018, fell below state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only six percent 'exceeded' expectations.
