The largest performance drop occurred in the lower grade levels. There were also significant drops overall in math.

”From Mach until then, kids were learning from instructional packets, instructional videos so that is also an impact of that,” said And we also know we can not really measure the exact level of what that engagement was from students from march to the end of the school year 2020.”

Grades 9 through 12 increased proficiency in social studies but scores dropped in English language arts and in math.
