By Local Labs News Service | Dec 30, 2017


About 23 percent of Beecher Junior High School students passed annual math assessments in 2017 and 77 percent of students failed, according to a Will County Gazette 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 Beecher Junior High School math scores, about 23 percent met expectations and 0.8 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 39 percent approached expectations, while 24 percent partially met expectations and 13 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 Beecher Junior High School, which enrolled 256 students in 2017, fell below state averages.

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

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