UNDATED  (AP) – Minnesota students are showing slight progress on the reading portion of the state’s standardized tests, but 11th graders fared better on the math test.

The state’s Department of Education released on Wednesday morning the results of the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments taken by students last spring.

The number of Minnesota students who scored as proficient on reading increased 1.6 percentage points to 74 percent while the number of 11th graders who made the grade in math increased 5.3 percentage points to 49 percent.

Sartell-St. Stephen school district also released their results.  Students in that district outperformed the state averages in all areas, with a range of anywhere from 6% to almost 30% higher than the state average.
