After a long embargo period, the Nebraska Department of Education has released the 2016-17 NeSA scores. We are so proud of our students for the outstanding job that they did on their tests and we are proud of our teachers for preparing our students.
Chadron Middle School out performed the state average at every grade level and in every subject on the 2016-17 NeSA test. Two areas of strength for Chadron Middle School were on the mathematics and science assessments where over 80% of students in each grade level met or exceeded proficiency standards.
2016-17 was the first year that new English-Language Arts (ELA) test was administered. In addition, Chadron Middle School implemented a new Reading/Language Arts curriculum. Typically, scores go down when a new test is administered and when a new curriculum is adopted. That said, our students still out performed the state. This is a testament to the alignment work and training that our ELA teachers and Mrs. Moore did before fully implementing the new curriculum. It also speaks to the effort that our students put into their studies and the excellent that support that they get from their parents.
Again, congratulations to our students and teachers for their excellent performance!
