Timberlane is justly encouraged by the recently reported improvement in AP scores for 2015. They show a marked improvement overall for our district and demonstrate the hard work of our teachers and students.
It is important, however, to put these results in the context of the rest of our state for 2015:
- 15 subject areas tested at Timberlane
- 4 subject areas at Timberlane scored higher than the state mean results [Computer Science, English, Environmental Science, European History]
- 11 subject areas at Timberlane scored lower than the state mean results.
While encouraging and certainly in the right direction, we must keep striving*. A close look at the score breakout by subject back to 2011 is certainly instructive.
*a previous version said we need to get more 1’s and 2’s… that was a brain cramp and thanks to Dr. Metzler for pointing that out. Obviously we need more 5’s and 4’s!
