Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: Vermont, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in Vermont for 2010. Vermont's demographic profile is such that achievement trends could only be determined for white, male and female, and low-income student subgroups. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), the white, low-income, male and female subgroups made progress at the proficient-and-above, and advanced levels in reading and math but showed some declines at the basic level. Progress in narrowing achievement gaps between low-income and non-low-income students and between boys and girls at grades 4 and 8 was mixed. 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.]
