At its Oct. 16 meeting, the board of education heard an update on Barrington 220 assessment data from Ben Ditkowsky, Ph.D., Barrington 220 Director of Data, Assessment and Program Evaluation. 

The report highlighted the college readiness of Barrington students. More than 80% of Barrington students go to college and the majority of those students graduate within six years

The report also shows an increase in student enrollment in Advanced Placement classes, over the last five years. Approximately 90% of Barrington students who take the optional AP exam earn college credit while enrolled in high school. 

Finally, the report reviewed the results of state testing, which aims to predict college and career readiness. The data shows Barrington 220 students continue to outperform the state, as they are 1.5 to two times more likely to meet expectations on PARCC testing.
