— North Carolina Public Schools released results of testing from the 2012-13 school year Thursday. Those results fed the state’s READY Accountability model, which cobbles together measures of student performance and progress to gauge how ready students are for college or to take on careers.

In the data below, the “percent of students proficient” indicates the aggregate number of students in a school or school district who were able to meet or exceed performance standards on end-of-year tests.

The “federal growth expectations” column indicates how well a school did in meeting federal guidelines. They measure how much students are learning rather than their absolute mastery of a particular topic. If a school “exceeds” that standard, many students showed more academic growth than would have normally been expected within one year. Schools that “met” expectations were those where most students showed a year’s worth of learning over one year. Those where expectations were “not met” were schools where most students did not show a year’s worth of academic growth over the school year.

    'i find it very disturbing that having half of your students performing at "grade level" means you have met your goal as a school!!!!'

    Depends on the school. The 5th highest scoring elementary school (Olive Chapel) didn't meet their goal and they scored 74%!
