Virtual Schooling in the News

Well, this is a new feature that will allow me to post at least once a week... Here are some online news items about virtual schooling that my Google news alert service sent to me.

Arkansas Virtual School Shows Strong Results on ITBS Scores
PR Newswire (press release) - New York,NY,USA

The Arkansas Department of Education has released the Arkansas Virtual School (ARVS) results on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) for the 2004-2005 school year. ARVS students posted very strong scores on the state-mandated assessments. Students in grades K through 8 took the norm-referenced ITBS which compares students' performance against a national norm group. The ITBS can be used to compare the performance of one group of students against other groups of students. All ARVS students were tested at their local school districts alongside other students enrolled in the respective districts.

That's all for this week, but I'll be back again next week with more items from this service.
