Ninety-three percent of California high school seniors passed the California High School Exit Exam last year, according to State Superintendent Jack O'Connell, who released results Thursday. The results reflect a 2.1 percent increase over the previous year's scores.

Locally, both Lodi Unified School District and Galt Joint Union High School District boasted small increases in the percentage of students who passed the test during their sophomore year - the first opportunity students have to take the test.

    So now we know that our 17 and 18 year old twelfth graders can actually pass an exam designed for the Eighth grade. If 8th grqders can pass the test, why do they need to spend four more yeatrs in school? Why don't you call the exam - waht it really is? The middle school promotion exam. What are you really telling us? JUST SAY IT. Why do we have to hear year after year of lame excuses? A 12th grade test should be given to 12th graders. Tell us your reasons.

    according to those blogs all ready posted it appears the Lodi Unified School District is damned if the do nd damed if they don't. Remember this testing is not the idea of the school district. It was put into place by a demoract controlled legislature.

    Could it be that the math scores are high since it is based on 8th grade math. LA is sophmore curriculum.

    Wow! We surpassed the County-wide average. Is this how success is measured, against the historically low county test scores? Sounds like bonus check time down at the Taj Mahal.

    And exactly why do we hear thru the town grapevine that Tokay is a better school? Maybe that was before the mold was found, because now both facilities are trashed, out of date, and disgusting.

    How about next year you lower the passing percentage in order to report even better scores, because it's all about the test scores, not how much the students have learned, or are prepared for the next level of education.
