Description: This memorandum presents results of 2016 Montgomery County Public Schools' (MCPS) Assessment Program in Primary Reading (AP-PR) with comparison results from school years 2013 through 2015 for kindergarten and Grade 2. Grade 1 2016 AP-PR results are used as the new baseline due to the addition of the written comprehension portion into the benchmark requirements. Kindergarteners demonstrated a slight one-year improvement in the percentage of meeting or exceeding the grade-level reading benchmark at Text Level 4 and proficiency at Text Level 6 in 2016. In Grade 2, a small one-year decrease in AP-PR performance in 2016 was indeed preceded by a slight one-year increase in 2015.
