Once again, Peabody students lagged behind state averages on math and science. although they did make some marginal progress over last year's scores, primarily in science and technology.
On the English Language Arts (ELA) portion of the exam, Peabody again met the state average of 69 percent for proficient or higher scores, but still trailed behind in math by the same margin, which is now 54 percent versus 59.
Science and technology/engineering scores, however, improved to 53 percent for proficient and higher, up from 50 percent overall last year, and now trail the state average by just 1 percent.
