The gap group score combines the same six subjects, but looks only at students who make it to proficient or distinguished, without any partial or extra credit, and only at students from historically under-served groups: low income, limited English, students with disabilities, and students from African American, Hispanic, and American Indian/Native American backgrounds.
If we continue this pace of improvement, we can expect to see all students fully on track for college and career readiness--as shown by reaching a full 100--within:
- 10 years for elementary achievement/all students and 17 years for elementary gap group.
- 18 years for middle school achievement and 29 for middle gap group.
- 29 for high school achievement and 54 for gap group.
