Third Grade Proficiency in DC: Little Progress (2007-2011). Policy Brief
O'Keefe, Bonnie
DC Action for Children
Analysis of DC Comprehensive Assessment System (DC CAS) scores from 2007 to 2011 found no evidence of statistically significant changes in third grade math or reading proficiency at the citywide level, among traditional public schools or public charter schools, among racial and ethnic groups or by economic advantage or disadvantage. Neighborhood-level analysis of 2011 third grade DC CAS reading and math scores showed wide variations in test performance among neighborhoods. The neighborhood analysis also indicated close correlations between aggregated proficiency in neighborhood schools and neighborhood economic indicators such as poverty and median family income. (Contains 7 figures, 28 endnotes, and 3 footnotes.)
