Mixed NECAP news for local schools

January 31, 2014

WOONSOCKET — The number of Rhode Island students meeting at least partial proficiency for state testing of their math skills has increased, but the latest results for the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) released by the Department of Education still show students in urban districts like Woonsocket have more work to do to meet the state’s new graduation requirements.

State Commissioner of Education Deborah Gist and Gov. Lincoln Chafee released NECAP results Friday showing that 73 percent of the state’s current high school seniors have met the graduation requirement for mathematics and will be able to earn a diploma under the new requirements this spring.
