National Center for Education Statistics
Each state and jurisdiction that participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2009 reading assessment receives a one-page snapshot report that presents key findings and trends in a condensed format. Overall results, achievement level percentages and average score results, comparison of the average score in 2009 to other states/jurisdictions, average scores for state/jurisdiction and nation (public), results for student groups in 2009, and score gaps for student groups are included. In 2009, the average score of fourth-grade students in Maryland was 226. This was higher than the average score of 220 for public school students in the nation. The average score for students in Maryland in 2009 (226) was not significantly different from their average score in 2007 (225) and was higher than their average score in 1992 (211). In 2009, the score gap between students in Maryland at the 75th percentile and students at the 25th percentile was 47 points. This performance gap was not significantly different from that of 1992 (49 points). The percentage of students in Maryland who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 37 percent in 2009.
