The Nation's Report Card Reading 2011 State Snapshot Report. Alaska. Grade 8, Public Schools
National Center for Education Statistics
Each state and jurisdiction that participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2011 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 2011 to other states/jurisdictions, average scores for state/jurisdiction and nation (public), results for student groups in 2011, and score gaps for student groups are included. In 2011, the average score of eighth-grade students in Alaska was 261. This was lower than the average score of 264 for public school students in the nation. The average score for students in Alaska in 2011 (261) was not significantly different from their average score in 2009 (259) and was higher than their average score in 2003 (256). In 2011, the score gap between students in Alaska at the 75th percentile and students at the 25th percentile was 46 points. This performance gap was not significantly different from that of 2003 (50 points). The percentage of students in Alaska who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 31 percent in 2011. This percentage was greater than that in 2009 (27 percent) and was greater than that in 2003 (27 percent).
