The State Board of Education has released this year's scores.
Statewide, 85.5% of students passed. That's slightly better than 2013 and scores have improved each year.
Students took the first IREAD test in 2011 and only 80% of students passed that year.
Scores for individual schools and corporations will be out later this month.
