More L.A. Unified Students Reach Goals On Statewide Exams, District Says

More students in the Los Angeles Unified School District met statewide goals on standardized tests in 2016 than they did last year, district officials said at a meeting Tuesday.

Scores on the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress increased in both English and math, they reported. In English, 39% of students reached statewide goals, compared with 33% in 2015. In math, the district said, 29% of students reached those goals, compared to 25% last year.
