In 2014-15, Maryland fully implemented the new PARCC assessments, which are aligned to new standards and serve as a reset for the State’s accountability system. In 2017, the third year of implementation, students showed significant improvement in both reading and math. Statewide, Maryland students were at 40.6% in English Language Arts.
Achievement information for schools, school systems, and the State is published in the annual Maryland Report Card. This report provides information for each public school and local school system, showing the school/system’s performance and progress.
