How many students opted out of the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) in Washington State? Short answer: More than you probably imagined.
Now that the final numbers are out, let’s dig in and see what happened.
We knew the opt out numbers were going to be huge. Last week’s OSPI report confirmed that. Across the state, the opt out rate for 11th grade was 49.3% for ELA and 52.9% for Math. This translates into:
37,112 students opted out of the English Language Arts (ELA)
39,444 students opted out of Math
(Opt outs are reported as “No Score”. Click image to enlarge.)
Now let’s do a quick run down on the other grades. Although the numbers lack the dramatic impact of the 11th grade, these figures are higher than what was reported by OSPI in July.
1,590 opted out of the ELA
1,680 for Math
