Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Nebraska
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Nebraska made gains across the board at the proficient-and-above level for all major racial/ethnic subgroups and low-income students in reading and math. Achievement gaps also narrowed across the board for all subgroups analyzed at grades 4, 8, and 11. Comparable data were available at the proficient level only for 2003-2009 in reading and 2002-2009 in math, so trends at the basic-and-above and advanced levels could not be determined. (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. For the 2009 Nebraska report, see ED507950.]
