Worth Noting All GP schools met the Michigan Adequate Yearly Progress Standard. Test results remain high with inclusion of special education students. Even with more students taking AP, ACT, and SAT, scores remain stable or improved. (Usually, the more students who take a test, the lower the average score.)
Following Through Comparing test scores from previous years, where possible. Analyzing the real meaning of the numbers. Looking for patterns. Studying gender discrepancies. Identifying emerging problems.
