BATON ROUGE - Superintendent of Education John White says the first glimpse of how Louisiana students fared on Common Core tests will be Oct. 12.

Those statewide results will show how about 320,000 students did on the exams in March and May, and eventually how they compare with their peers in other states.

Students will be placed in one of five categories: advanced, mastery, basic, approaching basic and unsatisfactory.

Comparisons between states on the math, reading and writing assessments will be possible once 10 other states and the District of Columbia also release their results.

White made his comments Monday, the same day education department officials began sharing preliminary results of the tests with roughly half of the state's 70 local school superintendents.
