PSSA & Keystone Performance
The files below contain PSSA/Keystone results information for SY 2009-2010 through SY 2021-2022 at the School and District levels.
An important note about results for SY 2019-2020 and SY 2020-2021: Due to COVID-19 school closures, the PSSA and Keystone exams were not administered in Spring 2020 (for SY 2019-20). In SY 2020-21, due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic, students were 100% virtual for most of the school year. SY 2020-21 PSSA & Keystone participation was low, and therefore, results are not published here. To learn more about district-wide assessments administered in SY 2020-2021, view this issue brief.
Files provided for each year available are:
- Actual Performance files: calculated using actual student performance levels.
- Accountability Performance files: calculated using the student performance levels used for accountability reporting purposes, which are revised to meet state mandated caps for PASA.
Both files contain results for grades 3-8 and 11 on the English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, and Science portions of the Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA) exam. They also include results for grade 11 on the Algebra I, Biology, and Literature exams that make up the Keystone end-of-course assessments. Results are reported for All Students, and are also broken down by Gender, Ethnicity, English Language Learner (ELL) status, Special Education (IEP) status, and Economically Disadvantaged status.
