First, here's the overall good news, with upward movement on the percent of students reaching all three of the college readiness benchmarks set by the Council on Postsecondary Education.
Second, here's a look at the trends for subgroups, this time showing composite scores (combining English, math, reading, and science) rather than percent meeting benchmarks. Highlighted, you can see that:
- African American students made no gains compared to last year
- Hispanic students lost one-tenth of a point
- American Indian students gained three-tenths of a point, growing a bit faster than students overall, with results still far behind their white classmates
Results for students with disabilities and students who receive free or reduced-price meals were not included in the press release but will be included in the 2014-15 school report cards now scheduled for release in early October.
