For the most part, students in Door and Kewaunee counties are at or above the state averages in scores on standardized tests released yesterday by the Department of Public Instruction. Area schools were especially strong in science and math.
Algoma School Superintendent Ron Welch says he doesn’t get too excited about comparing Algoma’s test scores to other districts.
The tests were administered last fall to students in 4th through 8th grades as well as 10th graders. Welch says a new computerized test will be given to students statewide starting next year.
