Georgia’s 2019 NAEP Performance as Grades Part 1.01 The Corrected and Upgraded Edition

In the All Students category for both English and Reading domains, an estimated 91% plus of the students assessed had been left behind and failed to score, a scaled score equivalent grade of 70.

We apologize for the Fourth Grade Math typos. Despite hiding out on the internet we are human, but unlike the media, we don’t hide our mistakes on page six. We give you a splashy headline, and to make it worth your time, we are including percentage estimates of the students left behind.

In this post, Grades and percentages are rounded to the nearest whole number, or adjusted to show continuity when two grades or percentages would round to the same whole number. Percentages may exceed 100%.

This post is part one of five posts addressing Georgia’s 2019 NAEP assessments, follow links for Part Two, and Part Three

The obligatory self-promotion:

As a startup, we are hoping you will find The Afterclap informative, different, and interesting. If you do, we would appreciate your following and sharing.

We are a work in progress, and our first goal is to show assessment results in a self-evident, understandable, and relatable way. We believe if the results were; self-evident, understandable, and relatable. Educational Authorities would not need to explain them to their satisfaction. Or for you to need The Afterclap to translate the Education Authorities explanation.

We welcome questions about the work and suggestions pertinent to accomplishing our goal.
