Students show improvement on standardized tests

Local elementary, middle and high schools showed an overall improvement on state standardized test scores last year, according to education officials.

The Mountain View Whisman School District saw a 2 percent overall increase in English language arts scores and a 3 percent overall increase in mathematics scores, as measured by 2010 California Standards Test, according to a report released by the district. Overall scores are up 13 and 14 percent, respectively, since the 2005-06 school year.

The Mountain View-Los Altos Union High School District also showed improvement over last year's scores in every area tested. Freshmen improved most in algebra (10 percent), sophomores improved most in chemistry (9 percent) and juniors improved most in their summative high school math (6 percent).
