Nearly 95 percent of students in the Class of 2011 have passed the high school exit exam.  That's up a smidge from last year.   Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson says this year's tests showed improvement among African-American and Hispanic students as well.  The passage rate for African-Americans was nearly 91 percent, and for Hispanic students it was 93 percent.  That's up about a percentage point for both groups.  Torlakson says the "achievement gap" between white students and their African-American and Hispanic counterparts is also shrinking.   California high school students first take the test in tenth grade and have multiple opportunities to re-take it if they fail.
