The Colorado Department of Education released statewide results from the first round of PARCC tests students took in the spring.
The results from the new and more challenging English and math tests, as expected, were bleak. But state officials cautioned not to worry.
New data, also released Thursday, showed a growing opt-out movement.
If you’re looking for data about a particular school or school district, you’ll have to wait until December. That information will be released publicly Dec. 11.
