Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: California
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), California students made gains across the board in reading at the basic, proficient, and advanced levels for racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. In math, there were some declines at the basic achievement level. In terms of percentages proficient, achievement gaps between racial/ethnic subgroups, low income and non-low income students, and boys and girls (in reading) narrowed almost across the board. However, this was not confirmed by the mean (average) score measure. Comparable data were available from 2004 through 2009. [For the main report, "State Test Score Trends through 2008-09, Part 2: Slow and Uneven Progress in Narrowing Gaps", see ED513914. For the 2009 California report, see ED507934.]
