The State Report Card released recently by the South Dakota Dept.of Education gives a glimpse of student performance in English, math and science.

Students take the statewide assessments in English language arts and math in grades 3-8 and 11. They take the statewide assessment in science in grades 5, 8, and 11.

The information below shows how each population of students performed. It is broken down by group to show whether or not a school is serving all of its students well. When there are gaps for certain groups of students, schools can use that information to understand how they can better serve those groups to ensure that all students are performing at grade level.

Statewide, one of the concerns is that Native American students and economically disadvantaged students consistently score lower than other students.

Statewide, 23% of Native students tested as proficient in reading and writing English; 14% in math and 13% in science. Timber Lake’s Native students scored 61% in English, 55% in math and 45% in science.
