COLUMBIA - Recent data analysis shows Missouri has progressed toward higher national rankings in education. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education launched the Top 10 by 20 program in 2009. The program's goal is for Missouri to rank among the top 10 states by 2020.

Since 2010, MAP test scores have gradually increased in several areas of education. Although some subjects, like math, are lower than average, they still show the numbers have slighty improved.

The data shows the percent of students in Missouri scoring at or above proficiency level in mathematics increased from 51.2 percent in 2009 to 53.2 percent in 2014. Some mid-Missouri schools have exceeded even those results. The 2015 Map results showed Cole County R-1 district scored 63.3 percent proficiency in math.

Missouri students also show in social studies. The proficiency level increased by 5.2 percent in 2 years setting the students in Missouri at 55.4 percent in 2014.

The 2015 target for all Missouri students in social studies was 57.1 percent. The 2020 goal is 65.3 percent. 

Another mid-Missouri school district, Columbia 93, shows 2015 test results list them at 62.7 percent proficiency. Not only did they exceed 2015 goals, but this district along with several other mid-Missouri districts like Jefferson C-123 and Morgan CO. R-II are well on their way to reaching the 2020 goal as well. 

The 10 by 20 program's list of goals also includes increased attendance. Data shows all students' attendance records have gradually improved since 2011. 

The 2020 target goal is 90 percent. The 2014 records show a 89.3 percent attendance rate. 

Missouri students still have about five years to reach all of the program's goals. DESE's 10 by 20 analysis and Missouri state test scores show the program is making some progress and already achieving some of its goals. 

DESE said measures, data and comparisons will continue to be updated as data becomes available. An updated data analysis for the 10 by 20 program is set to be released this month.
