There’s a mix of good and bad news in the results of the Missouri Assessment Program reading scores. The latest scores for 7th graders show “satisfactory” levels of 64 percent, with 72 percent of 3rd graders reaching the “satisfactory” level. “Proficiency” levels are not where Education Commissioner Kent King wants to see them. Only about a third of 3rd and 7th graders taking the reading tests reached that level. King says there is a lot of room for improvement.
