Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Rhode Island
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Rhode Island showed gains--improvements in reading and math at the basic, proficient, and advanced levels for most racial/ethnic subgroups, low-income students, and boys and girls. Achievement gaps between students narrowed in most cases at grades 4 and 8. Comparable data were available for 2006-2009 at grades 4 and 8, however, there were not enough years of data to discern trends at grade 11. (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 Rhode Island report, see ED507953.]
