Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Arkansas
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Arkansas showed across-the-board gains--improvements in reading and math at the basic, proficient and advanced levels for all racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. The gains were quite large in most instances, especially at the proficient level. However, progress on narrowing of achievement gaps was mixed, because comparison groups (white and non-low income students) also improved their performance on state tests. Comparable data were available from 2005 through 2009 for grades 4 and 8, and from 2001 through 2009 for high school. (Contains 9 tables.) [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 Arkansas report , see ED507933.]
