The LDOE released the following statement regarding the scores: "The 2014 tests are part of a transition process to higher expectations in Louisiana, which commenced in 2010. In 2013, students took modified LEAP and iLEAP tests that were partially aligned to the new standards. In 2015, Louisiana students will take the same English Language Arts and math assessments administered in more than a dozen other states, providing the first comprehensive assessment of the state's educational competitiveness."
