Student Accountability Standards Reports 2002

-In 1997, pursuant to growing concerns regarding the issue of social promotions, the North Carolina General Assembly ratified GS 115C-12. Among other things, the statute directed the State Board of Education (SBE) to develop “grade-level student proficiency benchmarks” and to “establish a Committee on Standards and Accountability.” The Committee on Standards and Accountability recommended that the SBE adopt four gateways through which students must pass to be promoted to the next grade level. This report addresses North Carolina’s student performance on the three gateways that are in effect at this time.
