Drum Point Rd Elementary School, of the Brick Twp School District, Scores High in Math and Science
The primary grades are often considered the most important years of a child’s school career. In grades K-5, students acquire content knowledge that they will use as the foundation for the rest of their education. As with all of the core subjects, there are certain objectives for mathematics that should be addressed in the primary grades.
In 2012-13 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey.
The test scores for the Drum Point Elementary School:
3rd Graders tested 12% points higher in Math than the state average
4th Graders tested 2% points higher in Math, 1% higher in Science and 3% higher in language arts than the state average
5th Graders tested 4% points higher in Math than the state average.
