Houston, Bibb eighth grades show gains on CRCT

Eighth graders in Houston and Bibb County both showed gains in this year's CRCT results.

In both districts, the students showed gains over last year in all five categories: reading, English, math, science and social studies.

In reading, for example, 93 percent of Bibb's eighth graders meet or exceed the state standards. That's up a point from last year.

In Houston, just over 98 percent of the kids made or beat the standard. That's up two tenths of a point.

Statewide, 97 percent of the students made the grade.

In all five areas, more Houston eighth graders met or exceeded the standard than the state average. Bibb eighth-graders scored below the state in all five areas.

The statewide Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests tests are aimed at measuring students' progress in key subjects. The test is given to students in grades 3-8.

Next year, the CRCT will be replaced by a new test, the Georgia Milestones.
