The Nation's Report Card Mathematics 2013 Trial Urban District Snapshot Report. Austin Independent School District. Grade 8, Public Schools
National Center for Education Statistics
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), in partnership with the National Assessment Governing Board and the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS), created the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in 2002 to support the improvement of student achievement in the nation's large urban districts. NAEP TUDA results in mathematics and reading are based on representative samples of 1,100 to 2,300 public school students at grade 4 and 900 to 2,100 public school students at grade 8 in each participating urban district in 2013. Twenty-one urban districts participated in the 2013 assessments. This one-page report presents overall results, achievement-level percentages and average score results, scores at selected percentiles, average scores for district and large cities, results for student groups in 2013, and score gaps for student groups. In 2013, the average score of eighth-grade students in Austin was 285. This was higher than the average score of 276 for public school students in large cities. The average score for students in Austin in 2013 (285) was not significantly different from their average score in 2011 (287) and was higher than their average score in 2005 (281). The score gap between higher performing students in Austin (those at the 75th percentile) and lower performing students (those at the 25th percentile) was 50 points in 2013. This performance gap was not significantly different from that in 2005 (53 points). The percentage of students in Austin who performed at or above the NAEP Proficient level was 35 percent in 2013. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2011 (38 percent) and in 2005 (33 percent). The percentage of students in Austin who performed at or above the NAEP Basic level was 73 percent in 2013. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2011 (74 percent) and was greater than that in 2005 (68 percent).
