Raytown School District scores

As previously reported, the State ratings of the Raytown School District dropped from an 85.0 in 2013 to a 71.8 in 2014.  The good news is that the reality of this is not as it appears. These scores are based on the School District meeting State set goals, and are not directly related to raw test scores and those goals are not the same across school districts.  The other good news, or at least not as bad, is that the decline was very slight when looking at a rating more directly related to student knowledge as measured by a nationally standardized test. That rating is the Raytown District’s average ACT scores. These only fell 0.1 from a 19.9 to a 19.8.   The bad news is that the Raytown average score of 19.8 is below Missouri average, and below the required level to be admitted to many Missouri Colleges. Requirements for University of Central Missouri are provided as an example below the table.

The percentage of Raytown students taking the ACT also continues to be an area for concern. While that number has increased slightly over the past eight years, Raytown students consistently take the test in fewer numbers than the state average would predict (13% lower in 2014).
