Maryland School Assessment Results Continue to Improve
Maryland State Department of Education
The Maryland School Assessment (MSA) is administered annually to students in grades 3-8 in reading and math. MSA data are used to meet federal No Child Let Behind (NCLB) requirements. This paper presents how Maryland students' reading and mathematics MSA scores continued to improve in 2009, and the achievement gaps among special services and racial subgroups continued to close. This progress can be directly attributed to the steadfast effort put forth by educators throughout the State; in particular, an unwavering focus on improving instruction so students are prepared for the world that awaits them.
