Here is a look at the lowest-scoring elementary schools in Utah, according to the state's criterion-referenced tests, or CRT. The CRT tests gauge student performance and shows which schools are performing better than others in scores. The rankings are based on the percentages of students who have passed CRT tests proficiently. The Deseret News averaged language arts, math and science scores together to get an overall percentage. In order to be considered "proficient," a student has to score more than 50 percent correct. Check out the top 30 schools in Utah. The Deseret News conducted the same study last year to meaure school proficiency. Here is a link to last year's results. The data is found on the Utah State Office of Education's website.
