The New York State Testing Program results for the students within the Diocese of Brooklyn have been posted and we are extremely proud of the continued success of our students, teachers and principals!
The chart below compares the Diocesan state test results directly to those students tested in the New York State and New York City public schools which show the percent of students who are proficient for their grade level. Proficiency on state tests is defined by any student who scores at Level 3 or Level 4 (meets/exceeds proficiency for grade level respectively).
The 2019 Diocesan results for ELA in Grades 4, 6 and 7 are off the charts against the city and state. We are pleased to report that for the first time in 2019, we tested Grade 7 students in ELA; our seventh graders attained 54.9 percent proficiency. Diocesan seventh graders far surpassed the state by 15.2 percentage points and the city by 12.2 percentage points.
In Grade 7 Math, our results were competitive with 42.4 percent of diocesan students reaching proficiency and scored slightly higher than the city and slightly less than the state. However, our grade 4 students outpaced both the city and state in Math with a diocesan proficiency of 51.3 percent. In Grade 6 Math, we trailed the city and state slightly.
