How does this state serve all students?
Schools are responsible for the success of all students, including students in specific student groups. When students in a group fall behind peers outside their group, an achievement gap is identified.
An achievement gap is decreasing (improving) when the performance of the group improves from the previous year more than the performance of their peers outside the group. The achievement gap remains the same when the difference in performance of the group versus their peers outside the group is the same as the previous year. The achievement gap is growing (worsening) when the performance difference of the group versus their peers outside the group increases.
Comparison charts will appear only for the selected student group when sufficient data are available.
