Maryland School Assessment Scores Dip

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland School Assessment scores are down this year.
    
The Maryland State Department of Education released results on Tuesday.

The percentage of elementary students scoring at the proficient levels in reading fell from 88.2 percent in 2012 to 86.4 percent this year. The percentage of elementary students scoring in the proficient levels in mathematics dropped from 87.7 percent to 83.9 percent.
