About 47 percent of South Middle School students passed annual math assessments in 2018 and 53 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 South Middle School math scores, about 40 percent met expectations and 7 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 29 percent approached expectations, while 11 percent partially met expectations and 6 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 South Middle School, which enrolled 904 students in 2018, surpassed state averages.

Statewide, 31 percent of students passed the test and 69 percent failed.

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