Georgia’s 2019 NAEP Ethnic and Gender Eighth Grade Math Performance as Grades Part 3

Ethnic groups are listed by academic performance as measured by the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP). Students identified as Asians have led the assessment results for most of the current century. In 2019 it is estimated that 56% plus of Georgia’s Asian students were left behind, based on NAEP’s academic expectations.

This post is part three of five posts addressing Georgia’s 2019 NAEP assessments, follow links for Part One The Corrected and Upgraded Edition, and Part Two.

Georgia’s average Student Grade in Eighth Grade Math was a 56.

The Academic GAP you are not used to seeing.

The academic gaps, as shown in Table 1, are based on measured academic performance.

TABLE 1: Grade 8 Mathematics, Academic Gaps, by National Assessment of Education Progress scale scores, and Grade Equivalents.

Ethnicity and Gender 0 to 500 Mean Scaled Scores Scale Score Difference from Asian Students 0 to 100        Grade Equivalents Grade Difference from Asian Students
Asian

324

65
White

292

32 58 6
Two or more races 283 41 57 8
Female 280 44 56 9
Georgia All students 279 45 56 9
Male 279 45 56 9
Hispanic 275 49 55 10
Black 262 62 52 12

* All scale scores and grade equivalents rounded to the nearest whole number.

** Due to rounding, differences may not appear exact. Examples: (1) a 64.8 would round to 65. (2) a 52.4 would round to 52. (3) a 12.4 would round to 12.

*** Rounding was the last function performed in the creation of Table 1: Grade 8 Mathematics, Academic Gaps, by National Assessment of Education Progress scale scores, and Grade Equivalents.

Table 1: shows the NAEP difference between Asian and Black student results as 62 scaled score points. However, when viewed as traditional grade values, the difference is 12 points.

 

OPINION

“While 62-scaled points and 12-grade points rounded, have the same weight, the presentation makes a difference when considering what needs to be done to catch up, move forward, or give up. Still, none of the total group averages are the equivalent of a 70 out of a possible 100 for a grade. What we have been doing for more than a half-century during the birth through high school graduation years has not been getting the job done for a supermajority of America’s students.”

 

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.

As a work in progress, if you have read any of our previous posts you will see how we are changing the format of the data, by streamlining the presentation. The goal is to show more facts in less space because your time is valuable. And we want you to know that your time here is a valuable use of that time.

As always, we welcome questions about the work and suggestions pertinent to accomplishing our goal.

METHODOLOGY

All scaled scores and equivalent grades are rounded to the nearest whole number. Example: 248.87 would round to a 249. Except for scores showing exit and entry grades, which are adjusted up or down to a whole number to delineate performance levels. All percentages are rounded to the nearest whole number.
