Gwinnett Students Perform Well on GHSGT

Gwinnett County Public Schools released assessment results, recently, that indicate that the vast majority of Gwinnett’s 9,403 juniors tested passed the writing portion of the 2010-11 Georgia High School Graduation Test on their first try. The system’s 98 percent passing rate, which is three points higher than the state’s 95 percent average, is up two percentage points from last year.

Students throughout Georgia must pass the writing assessment along with four subtests in core academic subjects in order to earn a Georgia high school diploma. The subtests-- in the subjects of language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science-- are administered to eleventh graders each spring.

Students who did not achieve a passing score in the first administration of the state writing test will have several opportunities to retake the test before their class graduates. A school-by-school report shows that gains were made in the percent passing in every single cluster.
