BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — New test results show most New York elementary and middle school students still aren’t on track to graduate ready for college, but education leaders saw progress in gains in math across all races and economic levels.

State education officials on Thursday released results of English and math tests given to students in grades 3 through 8 in April. It was the second year tests were based on the Common Core curriculum adopted by most states to improve college readiness.

Once again, less than a third of students, 31 percent, scored well enough in English to be considered proficient and on track to graduate college-ready.

In math, 36 percent were proficient, compared to 31 percent last year.

Test results are used in annual teacher evaluations and can be considered for student placements.
