Report Card: English Benchmark

​​​

​​

​The percentage of students earning a ‘C’ or better in English Language Arts​

 8th View Benchmark

Understanding the data

The benchmark displays the percentage of 8th grade students earning a 'C' or better in their English/Language Arts course at the end of each semester.

Because a school year includes two calendar years, such as 2014-2015, the school year on the benchmark chart is identified by the second calendar year. For example, the 2014-2015 school year is identified as 2015 on the chart.​​

The data can be viewed by district, region, school, and race. It can be further filtered by gender, English Language Learner status, free and reduced lunch status, special education status, and race.

Logic

Number of 8th grade students earning a grade of 'C' or higher divided by the total number of 8th grade students enrolled in English/Language Arts courses.
