Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Alabama
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Alabama students showed gains across the board in reading and math--at the basic, proficient, and advanced levels for all racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. Progress was made in narrowing achievement gaps between racial/ethnic subgroups, between low income and non-low income students, and between boys and girls (in reading). Comparable data were available from 2005 through 2009. (Contains 9 tables.)
