National Center for Education Statistics
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 School District of Philadelphia's student achievement in reading. In 2009, the average score of eighth-grade students in Philadelphia was 247. This was not significantly different from the average score of 252 for public school students in large cities. The percentage of students in Philadelphia who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 15 percent in 2009. This percentage was not significantly different from that in large cities (21 percent). The percentage of students in Philadelphia who performed at or above the NAEP "Basic" level was 56 percent in 2009. This percentage was smaller than that in large cities (63 percent).
