About 23 percent of Grove Junior High School students passed annual English language arts assessments in 2018 and 77 percent of students failed, according to a North Cook News analysis of the latest Illinois schools report card.

The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers, or PARCC, is administered to third- through eighth-graders in Illinois, testing them in reading and math based on Common Core standards.

According to Grove Junior High School English language scores, about 20 percent met expectations and 3 percent exceeded them. Students whose results are in either category are considered to be most ready to move on to the next level and are most prepared for college or work.

Another 28 percent approached expectations, while 23 percent partially met expectations and 26 percent did not meet them. Students who scored in these categories are not ready for the next level of schooling, according to the test.

Test results at Grove Junior High School, which enrolled 943 students in 2018, fell below state averages.

Statewide, 37 percent of students passed the test and 63 percent failed.

Of students statewide who passed, only six percent 'exceeded' expectations.
