An Easy Tool for Comparing State Performance and Improvement
We’ve just updated our State Academic Performance and Improvement Tool with the recently released 2013 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results.
Want to know how student achievement trends in your state compare with those of other states? How about with the United States as a whole? Our tool allows you to easily see how your state’s current performance and improvement over the past decade compare with other states and the national average.
Using NAEP data, the tool creates charts that let you answer questions such as:
- Is my state performing better or worse than the nation as a whole?
- Is my state improving faster or slower than the rest of the country?
- Are there states that are performing better or improving faster that my state can learn from?
The tool allows you to see how your state fares in fourth and eighth-grade reading and math. And, importantly, you can see how your state compares to others, based on overall results and results for different groups of students, including low-income and higher-income, white, African American, Latino, Asian/Pacific Islander, and American Indian.
Check it out to see how your state compares.
