Sharon Otterman reports: “City students posted modest gains on elementary and middle school statewide tests this year, showing more improvement than students in the state as a whole and in New York State’s other large cities, officials said Monday.

State officials toughened scoring last year after determining that the tests had become too easy to pass.”
