The results for the Common Core tests administered to students earlier this year have been released.
The results show a majority of North Country students fell under the proficiency standards outlined by the tests.
The tests were administered to students in Grades 3-8 for both Math and English.
Most of the students in the tri-county area fell either in level one or level 2 in the rankings, meaning below proficiency or partially proficient. Level 3 under the exams marks proficient.
The tests have been controversial with some parents electing to have their children opt out of the exams when they were held last spring.
According to state wide results, 20 percent of eligible tests takers did not take the exams.
Overall, 30% to 40% of students statewide who did take the tests scored a level 3.
