CHAPPAQUA, N.Y.-- New York State released the results of the Grades 3 to 8 English Language Assessments and Math Assessment results for the Chappaqua Central School District Wednesday with the district performing better overall than the state average.

In the state, 31.1 percent of the students met or exceeded the ELA proficiency standard (level 3); 31 percent met or exceeded the math proficiency standard (level 3).

The percentage of students deemed proficient is significantly lower than in 2011-12. The state said the change in scores is largely the result of the shift in the assessments to measure the common core standards, which more accurately reflect students' progress toward college and career readiness.

"The world has changed, the economy has changed, and what our students need to know has changed," Board of Regents Chancellor Merryl H. Tisch said. "These scores reflect a new baseline and a new beginning. We have just finished the first year of a dramatic shift in teaching and learning."

In Chappaqua, scores were down, though they were still above the state average.

"It's impossible to compare previous results because the tests are different," Superintendent Lyn McKay said. "Following any state assessment, administrators work carefully to analyze the results and prepare accordingly to meet students needs. We see this as one way to look at student learning."

In Grade 3 ELA, 7 percent of students were at level 1 proficiency, 17.3 percent of students were at level 2, 62.3 percent were at level 3 and 13.4 percent were at level 4.
