Cumulative Results for Putnam County
These numbers, based on test score data, track how much students learned from year to year, based on a national average of 100. A school of mostly low-scoring students and a school of mostly high-scoring students would get the same marks if it helped its students improve their scores by the same amount. Each school's gains are compared to the national average for gains in reading, math, science and social studies.
A score of 100, for example, means that students learned as much as the national average in that grade and that subject. A score of 200 means that students at a school learned twice as much as the national average in a given subject. The scores are a 3-year average of the gains for students in grades 4-8.
