Excellent reliability; at the level of the best standardized tests. There are probably a few items which could be improved.
The slider can be used to select a year, or to scroll through years from tothough gap estimates are not available for all states in all years, particularly from To highlight a particular state in the figure, select it from the "Select state" pull-down menu.
The map shows the size of the achievement gap in each state, for the selected group, grade, subject, and year, measured in standard deviation units. NAEP is not administered in every year for every subject and grade; states without data for a particular year, subject, group, and grade combination are shaded in grey.
In addition to the map, the figure to the left shows the average test scores for each group in each state. Close In the last two decades, racial achievement gaps have been narrowing in most states, but have widened in a small number of states.
Although the white-black and white-Hispanic achievement gaps have been narrowing nationally over the last decade or more, the rate at which these gaps are changing varies among the states. The Main NAEP data provide repeated measures of the size of these achievement gaps in each of the states between and On average, the within-state white-black achievement gaps have been narrowing at a rate of roughly 0.
The corresponding rate for white-Hispanic gaps is roughly 0. Although the gaps are, on average, closing, they are doing so very slowly, compared to their current size.
Nonetheless, there are some states where the gaps are closing much more rapidly. Likewise, many states that have seen no significant change from in the white-black achievement gap 21 states or the white-Hispanic gap 28 states.
In only three states Maine, Vermont, and Colorado has the white-black gap increased significantly in the last decade.
In only one has the white-Hispanic gap increased West Virginia.Because of the complexity and size of the PISA international database, this report’s analysis is restricted to the comparative test performance of adolescents in the United States, in three top-scoring countries, and in three other post-industrial countries similar to the United States.
The Negative Influence of Education Schools on the K Curriculum. Introduction. Teacher educators as a group tend to discourage scientific research on the effectiveness and effects of the pedagogical theories and practices that they promote in coursework for aspiring or practicing teachers and administrators.
In the wake of the PISA score release, Secretary Duncan requested that the OECD prepare a report on lessons for the United States from international test data. On this figure, the states can be sorted, using the "Sort by" pull-down menu, to examine the relative performance of each state’s white, black, and Hispanic students.
Close In the last two decades, racial achievement gaps have been narrowing in most states, but have widened in a small number of states. School accountability—the process of evaluating school performance on the basis of student performance measures—is increasingly prevalent around the world.
In the United States, accountability has become a centerpiece of both Democratic and Republican federal administrations' education policies.
