Subgroup Achievement and Gap Trends: South Dakota, 2010
Center on Education Policy
This paper profiles the student subgroup achievement and gap trends in South Dakota for 2010. South Dakota's demographic profile is such that, with the exception of Native American students, there are fewer than 500 students in the racial/ethnic subgroups at the various grade levels, and therefore these groups are too small to count for this study. In grade 8 (the only grade in which subgroup trends were analyzed by achievement level), the white, Native American, low-income, male and female subgroups made progress at the proficient-and-above, and advanced levels in math. Progress in narrowing achievement gaps at grades 4, 8, and 11 was mixed. The state introduced new reading testing in 2009, so trend data for reading that include 2009 are not available. Comparable data were available in math for 2006-2009. (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.]
