Earlier this week, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) published state, local and school level data from students who completed Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP) exams last school year. Results for MCAP assessments in English Language Arts (ELA), mathematics, and science for the 2022-2023 school year are now available on the 2023 Maryland Report Card website.
Data released by the state this week include ELA results from Grades 3-8 and high school students, math results from Grades 3-8 and high school students, and science data from Grades 5 and 8. The newly available reports include MCAP data for each school that shows the percent of students in each performance area.
MSDE reports MCAP performance assessment data using four levels: Distinguished Learner (Level 4); Proficient Learner (Level 3); Developing Learner (Level 2); and Beginning Learner (Level 1). A data analysis for Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) overall MCAP results from last school year is outlined here on the school system website.
Parents receive their child’s state assessment results through a document called an Individual Score Report, or ISR. Reports for the 2022-2023 school year were sent home with students earlier this month.
Additional data for CCPS released this week by the state includes information about educator qualifications and per-pupil expenditures. Per-pupil expenditure is the expected cost of educating each student in the school system. This figure is calculated by dividing the school’s operating costs by total enrollment. CCPS is required to report its official enrollment to MSDE on Sept. 30 annually.
