Test Scores 1984-85 and 1988-1995
Below are score charts that came from the Arkansas Department of Education in 1984-85 and 1988 -1995. These are copied pictures from the actual ADE documents. Fourth, seventh, and tenth grades were first used for accountability. Then in 1995 they changed and used 5th graders instead of 4th graders.
