5th graders beat regional and state percentages on writing assessment

The Spring 2010 Georgia Fifth Grade Writing Assessment results show that Fayette’s students on average outperformed their counterparts across the state.
Fayette’s scores breakdown as follows: 20 percent did not meet the standard, 70 percent met the standard and 10 percent exceeded the standard. A total of 1,569 students were tested.

Comparing the state’s results to Fayette’s, seven percent more students did not meet the standard, and four and three percent less students, respectively, met and exceeded the standard. Likewise at the regional level (includes Butts, Fayette, Henry, Lamar, Newton, Pike, Spalding and Upson counties) six percent more students did not meet the standard, and two and four percent less students, respectively, met and exceeded the standard.

The Georgia Writing Assessment is administered to students in grades three, five, eight and 11. The assessments provide information to students about their writing performance and areas of strength and challenge.
