Standardized Test Scores

ACT Aspire test scores from the 2016/17 school year for OLPS 3rd through 6th graders.
The National Percentile Scores* for our school are as follows:

ACT Aspire Scores per Grade Level:

Third Grade:

English 73; Math 68; Reading 62; Science 68; Writing 66

Fourth Grade:

English 78; Math 63; Reading 58; Science 70; Writing 79

Fifth Grade:

English 77; Math 64; Reading 61; Science 79; Writing 54

Sixth Grade:

English 72; Math 62; Reading 53; Science 53; Writing 83
*A National Percentile Score means that our students - per grade level - scored as well as or better than the percentage of students on their grade level nationwide who took the same test. (i.e. Gr. 6 - Writing 83: this means that 83% of the 6th graders nationwide who took the same test scored below our 6th graders in Writing.)

Each year, we use the data gathered from these tests, to guide our academic initiatives. For 2017-2018, we purchased a new Reading series in 1st grade and are implementing authentic literature based Reading in grades 2-6. Additionally, grades 3-6 are incorporating non-fiction texts and stressing higher order thinking skills - critical, logical, reflective, metacognitive, and creative thinking. We are continuing to practice timed writings in Language Arts and to include constructed response questions in all major subject areas. We are also continuing to place emphasis on memorizing math facts (+, -, /, X) and on conceptual understanding - deep comprehension of mathematical ideas.

You can help us accomplish this by practicing math facts with your children, encouraging them to use their Mathletics account, and making sure that they spend some time reading every single day.
