Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Massachusetts, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in Massachusetts for 2010. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), Massachusetts showed across-the-board gains--improvements in both reading and math at the basic, proficient and advanced levels for all racial/ethnic subgroups, low income students, and boys and girls. Results on achievement gaps were mixed. Comparable data were available for reading from 2006 through 2009 for grade 8, and from 2005 through 2009 for grade 4 and 10. Math data were available from 2001 through 2009, but the data were not disaggregated for all subgroups in math until 2005. (Contains 7 tables.)
