South Dakota Students Exceed SBAC Expectations.

The AP (9/21, Lammers) reports that South Dakota education officials released the first round of SBAC test resultson Monday, saying that “students performed better than expected,” though “less than half of them reached levels considered proficient.” The article reports that Secretary of Education Melody Schopp “said the results are in line with other states using the Smarter Balance tests.”

        KELO-TV Sioux Falls, SD (9/22) also covers this story on its website, noting that officials “are pleased even though numbers might look low.” This piece quotes Schopp saying, “The students really exceeded what our predictions were early on,” noting that state projections were based on 2014 SBAC field tests.
