State Test Score Trends through 2008-09, Part 1: Rising Scores on State Tests and NAEP. Arizona
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles Arizona's test score trends through 2008-09. Between 2005 and 2009, the percentages of students reaching the proficient level on the state test and the basic level on NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) increased in grades 4 and 8 in both reading and math. Average annual gains were generally larger on the state test than on NAEP. There was one exception in grade 8 math where the average annual gain was larger at the basic level on NAEP. Trends in average (mean) test scores moved in the same direction (up) as trends in percentages proficient/basic. (Contains 1 footnote.)
