ILEARN results 2019

Results of the state's new ILEARN standardized test were publicly released. ILEARN is a computer-adaptive assessment, which means every time a student answers a question, his or her response helps determine the next question asked.

In all, 47.9% of students in grades 3 through 8 were deemed proficient in English Language Arts and 47.8% in math. Just 37.1% passed both. Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick acknowledged that implementation dips usually come with a new assessment. Compared to last year, scores dropped 16% in English and 11% in math.

Locally, district-wide totals for proficiency in both English and math didn't crack 50% for any corporations in Allen County. Scores ranged from 25.5% in Fort Wayne Community Schools to 47.5% in Northwest Allen County Schools. East Allen County Schools and Southwest Allen County Schools scored 38% and 41.6% respectively.

Each district had at least one school that scored above 50% in English and math proficiency.
