Atlanta (WAOK)-Good news for students, teachers and administrators in Georgia. Scores from the Spring Criterion Reference Competency Test are in and they are better for the third year in a row. The latest results of the CRCT were released on June 9 by the Georgia Department of Education.

The report shows student results on the 2011 Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) are up in almost every grade and content area. A one-year improvement on 23 of the 30 content-area tests was noted. There was no one-year change on five tests and a decrease on only two tests (grade 4 reading and grade 6 English/Language Arts).

Among the highlights of the 2011 CRCT report:
- Reading, grade 5: Ninety-one (91) percent of students passed the reading CRCT, a one-year increase of one point, and a one-year increase of 10 points in the number of students exceeding the standard.

- Reading, grade 8: Ninety-six (96) percent of students passed the reading CRCT, a one-year increase of one point and an increase of seven points since GPS implementation (2006).

- Mathematics, grade 7: The pass rate was 89 percent, an increase of four points in one year and 15 points since GPS implementation (2007).

- Mathematics, grade 8: The pass rate was 78 percent, an increase of four points in one year and 16 points since GPS implementation (2008).

- Science, grade 3: The percentage of students exceeding the standard increased six points in one year.

- Social Studies, grade 6: The pass rate was 72 percent, an increase of eight points in one year.
