The Maryland State Department of Education released more data this week on student achievement, offering a sobering look at how the pandemic has affected school systems across the region. The scores come from the first Maryland standardized tests given since the beginning of the pandemic. The assessments measured a student’s proficiency in English language arts, math and science at the grade level they completed the year before. Students in grades 3 through 8 as well as some high schools completed the testing in the fall.
