elementary school assessments
Elementary School - Assessments
  • The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a common test taken by a sample of students in every state, making it a reliable yardstick for comparing achievement through elementary school.
  • Comparing the percentage of 4th graders scoring at or above Proficient on NAEP with those deemed proficient on state tests reveals a much lower proficiency standard on most state tests.

middle school
Middle School
  • Students who take challenging courses and meet high standards in middle school are much more likely to enter high school ready to succeed.

Algebra is widely recognized as a “gateway” course—students who take it by the end of 8th grade are much more likely to take rigorous courses in high school that lead to a college degree.

middle school achievement gap
Middle School – Achievement Gap
  • In most states, there is an achievement gap that separates African American, Latino and Native American students from White and Asian students.

How large is that gap in your state?

How successful has your state been in closing it over time?

high school
High School
  • Research has shown that a powerful predictor of whether high school students will graduate and earn a college degree is the rigor of the high school curriculum they complete.

Advanced Placement (AP) exams show how many students are taking challenging courses and attempting to earn college credit while still in high school.

high school state assessments
High School – State Assessments
  • All states have high school assessments that students take by the 10th or 11th grade. In almost half of the states, students must pass these tests in order to graduate.

Are students who pass the high school tests truly prepared for success in college or work?

Few states have designed their high school assessments to answer whether passing students are prepared for success in college and work.

high school graduating on time
High School – Graduating on Time
  • Nationwide, nearly 30% of high school students don’t graduate on time, and the figures are much lower for disadvantaged minority students than for white and Asian students.

Without a high school diploma, students’ chances for success in college or the workplace are severely restricted.

postsecondary attainment
Postsecondary Attainment
  • Earning a postsecondary credential has become increasingly important in today’s economy, and some states have made significant gains in college going rates.

College admission is only the first step. A quarter of college freshmen will not return for their sophomore year.

Only slightly more than half of students in 4-year colleges earn a degree within six years.
