The Bottom Line

  • We can also see the average performance of all students in Grade 3-8 throughout a district. Example: Despite progress in recent years, in Urban High Need Districts overall, about half are achieving all the standards. In Average Need Districts, about 70 percent are. In Low Need Districts, over 80 percent are.

  • We can also continue to see how students in Grade 4 and 8 are performing relative to previous years. There is very little change in the percentage meeting all the standards (Level 3 and 4).
