Scores from Colorado’s new social studies and science tests for K-12 students show mixed results.
The exams have five rankings.
For science, 34 percent of Colorado’s fifth graders and 32 percent of eighth graders scored in the highest range.
However, statewide 32 percent of fourth graders and 45 percent of seventh graders scored in the lowest range on the social studies test.
The exams were taken by students last school year.
