Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: North Carolina, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in North Carolina for 2010. In grade 8 math (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), North Carolina made gains across the board for all major subgroups at the basic-and-above, proficient-and-above, and advanced levels. Progress in narrowing achievement gaps in math was mixed at grades 4 and 8, depending on whether one looked at percentages proficient or average (mean) scores. Comparable data were available in math for 2006-2009. Recent trends could not be determined in reading because the state changed its reading test in 2008. High school trends could not be determined because none of North Carolina's various end-of-course exams is administered to all students. (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.]
