Academic Performance

The Missouri Assessment Program tests students in English Language Arts (Grades 3-8), Mathematics (Grades 3-8), and Science (Grades 5 and 8).  The results of those assessments for the last five years are provided below.  The graphs present student achievement both as MPI and the Percent of students scoring Proficient/Advanced.  The MAP Performance Index (MPI) accounts for the number of students who score Proficient or Advanced in a subject as well as students performing at the Basic and Below Basic levels.  Because there have been changes in the testing program during the last five years, a change in performance from one year to the next may reflect as much on the change in tests as on actual student performance.

Annual Performance Report (APR) and Attendance information is also presented.  Note that Attendance reflects the percent of students whose attendance is 90% or better–not average daily attendance.  Missouri uses this measure as part of the APR reporting process.

We provide comparison of La Salle Middle School’s performance to that of St. Louis Public Schools, the State of Missouri average performance, and to individual schools that serve the same community or are otherwise similar to La Salle.

In addition to the required Missouri state assessments, La Salle utilizes locally administered assessments to guide instruction throughout the year.

The Missouri Assessment Program tests students in English Language Arts (Grades 3-8), Mathematics (Grades 3-8), and Science (Grades 5 and 8).  The results of those assessments for the last five years are provided below.  The measure presented in graphic form is the MAP Performance Index (MPI), which accounts for the number of students who score Proficient or Advanced in a subject as well as students performing at a Basic level instead of Below Basic.  For those interested, tables of the percent of only students scoring Proficient and Advanced are provided at the bottom of the page.  Because there have been changes in the testing program during the last five years, a change in performance from one year to the next may reflect as much on the change in tests as on actual student performance.
