Colorado educators say the latest statewide student test results show some students are struggling, after years of improvement in statewide scores.

Education commissioner Dwight Jones says he has appointed Ken Turner as a deputy commissioner to figure out what's holding up progress on the Colorado Student Achievement Program, or CSAP.

Scores released Tuesday show the percentage of students who are proficient or advanced in reading rose in four grades between 2006 and 2007.

It declined in three grades and stayed the same in one.

The performance of third-graders on the Spanish reading test also declined.

Writing proficiency increased in four grades, declined in three and stayed the same in one.

Math showed improvement in four grades, declined in three and remained the same in one.

The only real gain was in science, where all three grades tested showed an increase.

    Maybe students would have better test scores if schools wouldn't close every time there is a snow flake in the air.
