# Georgia’s 2019 NAEP Ethnic and Gender Fourth Grade Math Performance as Grades Part 2

This post is part two of five posts addressing Georgia’s 2019 NAEP assessments, follow the links for Part One, and Part Three.

In the datum below you will find:

> Scaled scores transcribed as grades rounded to the nearest whole number.  Example: a 48.87 would round to a 49.

> Scaled scores transcribed as grades as entry-and-exits for Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, and Advanced are rounded to the nearest whole number, or rounded for continuity. Example and entry-and-exit of “42.8 to 49.6” and “49.8 to 56.2” will be shown as “43 to 49” and “50 to 56,” as seen in the sections below.

> Percents are as reported on the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) and may not equal 100% due to rounding.

> Scaled scores transcribed as grades for academic gaps rounded to one decimal place.

The Academic GAP you are not used to seeing.

The academic gaps, as shown in Table 1, are based on who leads academically, and the difference. Not based on an Education Authority story pitting one ethnic group against all others. If the Afterclap committed such an offense we would justifiably be charged with institutional racism and bigotry and would be guilty of the offense, because we know it to be a lie.

Table 1: Mathematics, Grade 4, Gaps by Ethnicity and Gender

 Ethnicity and Gender Mean Scaled Scores Scale Score Difference from Asian Students Grade Equivalents Grade Points Difference from Asian Students Asian 273 54.6 Two or more races 250 23 50 4.6 White 249 24 49.8 4.8 Male 238 35 47.6 7.0 Female 238 35 47.6 7.0 Georgia All students 238 35 47.6 7.0 Hispanic 230 43 46 8.6 Black 224 49 44.8 9.8

Congress has had oversight responsibilities of the National Assessment of Education Progress since 1978, with the enactment of Public Law 95–561 during the Jimmy Carter administration.

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.
