At the latest January Board meeting, the Maryland Department of Education released an update to 2021-2022 school year in English language arts (ELA) and mathematic assessment data.

This update details student proficiency in the new Maryland Comprehensive Assessment Program (MCAP).

According to the data, statewide ELA results have returned to pre-pandemic proficiency rates with improvements across all grade levels and student groups.

Students across all grade levels attained similar or improved proficiency rates in comparison to their 2018-2019 performance.

However, the data for math rates tell a different story. The percentage of students proficient on the math assessments has not returned to pre-pandemic levels of proficiency.
