Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Maryland, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in Maryland for 2010. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Maryland had data for racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls at the proficient and advanced levels. The percentage of students reaching the proficient and advanced levels on state tests increased for all subgroups in both reading and math. Achievement gaps narrowed for all subgroups at grades 4 and 8. Comparable data were available from 2004 through 2009 for grade 4, 2003 through 2009 for grade 8, and 2008 to 2009 for grade 10 (not enough years of data to constitute a trend at the high school level). (Contains 7 tables.) [For the main report, "State Test Score Trends through 2008-09, Part 2: Slow and Uneven Progress in Narrowing Gaps", see ED513914.]
