Larke, Patricia J.; Webb-Hasan, Gwendolyn; Jimarez, Teresa; Li, Yeping
Journal of Case Studies in Education, v6 Sep 2014
This study provides a critical look at achievement of African American (AA), and Latino (L) females in third and fifth grades on the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS) in reading, mathematics and science. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the 2007 and 2011 TAKS raw data. Data analyses indicate that AAL females had the lowest mean scores in reading, mathematics and science. This study brings light to the lack of preparation of AAL females in their early school experiences for a trajectory in STEM careers.
