This analysis indicated that from variables theorized to influenced score changes in NAEP reading scores from 1994-1998, two were the most consistent with pattern of correlations found in the data. Together, both median household income (AVGINC) and the percentage of students eligible for free and reduced-priced lunch (FRELCH) had fairly large impacts on reading score change. Additionally, the rate of change in reading scores varied across states. AVGINC had constant growth over time, while FRELCH's Development over time was quite slow in both model and an alternative model. (Contains 2 figures.)
