State test results show 11-percent of seniors won't graduate on time

The Texas Education Agency says most students did well in this year's round of TAKS testing.

Eighth grade TAKS scores stay stable and there was a slight drop in 11th grade scores but overall the news was good, Texas Education Agency Spokeswoman Debbie Ratcliff said. TAKS test scores were up for grades four, six, seven, nine and and 10.

Ratcliff says there is still work to be done. For example she says science scores aren’t as high as the agency wants them to be. Eighty-nine percent of graduating seniors have passed all parts of the test.
