Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: New York
Center on Education Policy
In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), New York showed a clear trend of gains in reading and math at the basic-and-above, proficient-and-above, and advanced levels for all major subgroups with just a few exceptions. Achievement gaps in reading and math also narrowed at grades 4 and 8 for most subgroups according to both percentages proficient and average (mean) scores. Comparable data were available for 2006-2009 at grades 4 and 8. Trends could not be determined for grade 11 because New York administers end-of-course exams that students take at different points in high school, depending on when they have completed the appropriate courses. (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 New York report, see ED507960.]
