Most Lodi Unified School District students in the Class of 2015 who took the California High School Exit Exam for the first time have seen a steady increase in their passage rates, but are still falling short of the state average of 96 percent — the highest rate since the test was made a graduation requirement. Numbers are in the mid-80s range for both Lodi and Galt students.
The test was administered during the 2012-13 school year to 10th-graders in the subjects of math and English-language arts. Questions are based on the California state standards, which define what students should be learning each year. Results were released Thursday.
