Delaware students took a brand new standardized test last school year. And now we finally have a feel for how they fared.

The state released preliminary test results on Wednesday. That’s a lot of data floating out into the ether.

We decided to harvest some of those numbers and make them easier for you, the public, to digest. In the tabs below you’ll find info for how each district and school in Delaware performed on the new test, known as Smarter Balanced. We also included data detailing how each district and school performed on the prior assessment, so you’ll have some method of comparison. (To find out why scores dropped so dramatically for many schools, check out our other coverage) The percentages tell you what portion of students scored high enough to be considered proficient in the given subject area. And yes, all those single-digit numbers are for real.

This is not a complete data set. Students in grades 3-8 and 11 take the test. In order to make this tool easier to navigate, we only included data from grades 5, 8, and 11. One final note, 11th-graders didn’t take last year’s test. So the 2014 high school numbers refer to how that year’s 10th-graders performed.

All that said, happy exploring.
