MIDLAND - STAAR Test results are finally in for Midland students.

Surprisingly, Midland ISD's scores mirror the statewide results.

When it comes to math and science, students passed with flying colors, and at times, far exceeded the state's results.

However reading and writing was their downfall.

But it's not just in the Basin.

Across the state, student scores took a dramatic fall when it came to language arts.

Now for students that didn't make the grade, they will have to retake the test if they want to graduate.
