Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Kansas, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in Kansas for 2010. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Kansas students showed across-the-board gains--both reading and math at the basic, proficient, and advanced levels for racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. Achievement gaps between racial/ethnic subgroups and between low income and non-low income students improved across the board. The gap in reading between boys and girls also narrowed. Comparable data were available from 2006 through 2009 for grades 4 and 8, and 2007 through 2009 at the high school level. (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.]
