State Test Score Trends through 2008-09, Part 1: Rising Scores on State Tests and NAEP. Utah
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles Utah'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 grade 8 reading. In grade 4 reading, the percentage scoring proficient on the state test showed a very slight (less than 1 percentage point) increase, while the percentage scoring basic on NAEP decreased. Average annual gains in reading were larger on the state test than on NAEP at both grades. Average (mean) test scores decreased between 2005 and 2009 in grade 4 reading on both the state test and NAEP. In grade 8 reading, however, average scores decreased on the state test but increased on NAEP. (Contains 1 footnote.)
