    Pretty much prove that this trend to data driven instruction doesn't  work.
    This year the passing score for 8th grade math on the State of Texas Assessment of Academic Skills is 35 percent.
    For Social Studies it varies from 46 percent to 49 percent, depending on grade level.
    Yeah, 35 percent on a multiple choice test, where chance gives you a 25 percent chance of getting any question correct. So if you are an average guesser, but you know the answer to 6 of the 60 questions,you pass.

    •  So (0+ / 0-)

      the Texas state education system is a complete failure and this is  somehow proof that a "data driven"  education system is is flawed? lol

      That sounds like logic which would come out of a state where 35% on a multiple choice test is considered passing.
