    1. HIGH SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT IN AMERICA:What Do We Know? Louisiana High School Commission The Education Trust December, 2004

    2. What Do We Know About Student Achievement?

    3. 12th Grade Achievement In Math and Science is Up Somewhat

    4. High School Achievement: Math and Science: NAEP Long-Term Trends Source: NAEP 1999 Trends in Academic Progress.

    5. In Reading, 12th Grade Achievement is Headed Downward

    6. HIGH SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT: READING AND WRITINGNAEP Long-Term Trends

    7. What about different groups of students?

    8. Gaps Narrow 1970-88NAEP Reading 17 Year-Olds Source: US Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics. NAEP 1999 Trends in Academic Progress (p. 107) Washington, DC: US Department of Education, August 2000

    10. Between 1988-90, that progress came to a halt…and gaps began to widen once again.

    13. How much learning takes place at each level?

    14. Students Make More Growth Grade 5 to 8 than Grade 9 to 12

    15. Academic GrowthGrades 5-8, 9-12

    16. Value Added in High School Declined During the Nineties

    36. Louisiana?

    37. Over Past Decade, State Among the Biggest Gainers in Student Achievement in Elementary, Middle Grades

    38. NAEP 4th Grade Math: LA (1992-2003)

    39. NAEP 8th Grade Math: LA (1992-2003)

    40. LA: NAEP Grade 4 Math Over Last Decade • LA students made third biggest growth in country; • Growth for Whites and Blacks exceeded national growth; • In 2003, performance of each group of students not much different than national average.

    41. LA: NAEP Grade 8 Math Over Last Decade • Second in growth overall; • Fourth in growth for black students; • Second in growth for white students;

    42. NAEP READING OVER DECADE: LA 4th Graders • Growth for white students tied for ninth nationally; • Achievement for black students flat.
