State tests administered to public school students this spring showed that many children have fallen behind in learning over the course of the coronavirus pandemic.

Across the board in all subjects, 52 percent of Moore County Schools students scored a Level 3 or above to indicate an acceptable grasp of the educational standards defined for their grade level.

That’s down from 61 percent in the 2018-2019 school year. North Carolina skipped testing in 2020 after shifting all students to virtual learning that spring.

Principals and teachers across the district have spent the last month, since the state released this spring’s testing data, identifying their schools’ losses and gains. With a few exceptions — sixth grade math results at Crains Creek Middle, the overall strong performance by McDeeds Creek Elementary students in the first year of testing since the school opened — losses outpaced gains.
