At the March 18th school board meeting Mrs. Ramirez defended her assertion that Investigations has helped students in her district. She cited a pass rate, 82.2%, obtained from PWCS staff, that indicated to her that Investigations was helping the students in Woodbridge District.
One quick question, which really should have been asked by Mrs Ramirez, what was the pass rate before Investigations was implemented?
Because one number tells you nothing. Comparing the pass rate for Woodbridge District after Investigations was mandated to the pass rate before it was mandated gives that number meaning.
Maybe the reason comparative rates weren’t provided is because the pass rate in Woodbrige before Investigations was mandated was higher.
