La. releases annual standardized test scores

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Louisiana education officials say 69 percent of public school students scored at the basic or better level on standardized tests this year.

The overall percentage was the same as in 2013. However, officials note that the tests are becoming more challenging as the state continues efforts that Education Superintendent John White says are designed to better prepare students for college. 

Also, Tuesday's figures show an increase in the percentage of students scoring at the "mastery" level in both English and math. In English Language Arts, 27 percent of students performed at the mastery level or higher, compared to 26 percent in 2013.

For math, 25 percent of students scored at mastery or higher this year. The department said that is a 2 point increase from 23 percent in 2013.
