ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – State education officials say students in Georgia’s elementary and middle schools improved on most of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests — or CRCTs — taken this year.

The state Department of Education released statewide results of the 2013 standardized tests on Tuesday.

Agency officials say the results show a one-year improvement in the percentage of students meeting and exceeding standards on 18 of the 30 content-area tests, no change on seven tests and decreases on five tests.

Also, students saw increases in the “exceeds performance” rating on 24 of the 30 content areas.

State School Superintendent John Barge said in a statement that the results show consistent progress by Georgia students.

State officials say school-level CRCT results will be available no later than July 10.
