New CCSD Test Scores
New CCSD Test Scores

Listen
AIR DATE: July 26, 2011

Scores for two Clark County School District standardized tests are out and the district didn't do as well as they hoped. CCSD saw a drop in scores for The 2011 Criterion Reference Test and the Nevada High School Proficiency Exam. District officials says more rigorous test and higher standards led to the lower test scores. We talk with Sue Daellenbach, the assistant superintendent of assessment with CCSD and Bob Schaeffer, Public Education Director with the National Center for Fair and Open Testing about what these scores tell us about performance in Clark County.
