|Parish biggest gains in iLEAP in English Language Arts|
Concordia Parish Supt. Loretta Blankenstein said the biggest gain for students on the iLEAP came in the area of English Language Arts.
State and local results were released on Friday.
Blankenstein said the 6th grade in the parish moved up three percent in basic and above, and decreased three percent in below basic.
Seventh grade increased four percent in basic and above, while Ninth grade increased four percent in basic and above and decreased four percent in the areas below basic. Other areas showed minimal or equal growth compared with last year's scores.
State officials were pleased with the marks statewide.
"From a testing standpoint, 2008 has been a success," said State Superintendent Paul G. Pastorek. "When you look at these scores in tandem with the results from LEAP, our districts have much to be proud of and so do our kids."
In Concordia, Blankenstein said, "We appreciate all of the efforts put forth by our personnel, parents, and children. We are proud of our gains on both the LEAP and the iLEAP, but are aware that there is always room for improvement.
"School administrators, and central office personnel will be analyzing the data during the summer to plan for the 2008-2009 school year. We look forward to the challenge and making additional gains in the upcoming year."
The iLEAP, which stands for Integrated Louisiana Educational Assessment Program, replaced The Iowa Tests beginning in the 2005-2006 school year, making this the third year from which schools and districts are able to track student performance. The iLEAP is aligned with Louisiana's Comprehensive Curriculum, benchmarks as well as Grade-Level Expectations in the areas of English Language Arts, mathematics, science and social studies and is compliant with the federal government's No Child Left Behind Act.
