The State Board of Education voted unanimously to adopt a cut score of 926 for the third grade literacy assessment. Mississippi Department of Education staff reported that 15 percent of Mississippi’s third-graders did not meet that cut score when the test was administered for the first time last month.
Students who did not pass the test the first time will have two more opportunities to take it this year, once between May 18 and May 22, and again between June 29 and August 7.
Students who have not passed the test by the August 7 re-take opportunity will be retained in third grade and will receive intensive reading interventions.
Parents of third-graders should expect to receive individual student score reports by early next week.
