Each district that participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2009 Trial Urban District Assessment in reading receives a one-page snapshot report that presents key findings and trends in a condensed format. This report presents the results for Boston Public Schools' student achievement in reading. In 2009, the average score of fourth grade students in Boston was 215. This was higher than the average score of 210 for public school students in large cities. The average score for students in Boston in 2009 (215) was higher than their average score in 2007 (210) and was higher than their average score in 2003 (206). In 2009, the score gap between students in Boston at the 75th percentile and students at the 25th percentile was 42 points. This performance gap was not significantly different from that of 2003 (42 points). The percentage of students in Boston who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 24 percent in 2009.
