Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Alaska
Center on Education Policy
Alaska showed improvement in reading and math in grade 8 at the proficient level for almost all racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls (subgroup trends were not available at the basic or advanced levels). Most student subgroups had upward trends in percentages proficient, with a few exceptions. Gains in math tended to be larger than in reading. Trends in closing achievement gaps were mixed. Comparable data were available from 2005 through 2009 for grades 3 and 8, and from 2006 through 2009 for grade 10. (Contains 9 tables.)
