In August 2003 the Maryland State Board of Education (MSDE) adopted passing standards for the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) in algebra/data analysis, biology, English 1, and Government. In December 2003, the MSDE released the 2003 HSA results for the state, school systems, and individual schools. MSDE also released recalculated 2002 results based on the adopted passing standards. This report presents the results of the 2003 administration of the four HSAs and summarizes the performance of the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) on these four end-of-course assessments.
