Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Georgia
Center on Education Policy
Georgia has made some changes in its testing program in recent years. As a result, trend data were only available for reading in grades 4 and 8 from 2006 through 2009, and only at the proficient and advanced levels. In math, data were only available for the high school level from 2004 through 2009. Achievement data for low income students were also unavailable. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Georgia students showed gains in reading at the proficient and advanced levels for racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. The limited data show that progress has been made in narrowing achievement gaps in reading between the African American and Latino subgroups and the white subgroup at grades 4 and 8. Gaps also narrowed in high school math. (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 Georgia report, see ED507939.]
