2019 Twelfth Grade NAEP Science Report

Almost two years past the Cohort Class of 2019 arrived at Terminus Station in their Birth through High School Graduation Journey. As potential life-long-Learners, data shows the Class of 2019 was left behind, unprepared, and inadequately learned. Yet they were forced out of their Factory-model, Assembly line, Age-group promotion, Schools.

The last part of this report shows the cumulative effect of Parent-education levels on student learning.  If you have read the Eighth-Grade results, this will not be new. Otherwise, this may be the first time you have seen the Parent impact on learning.

The results you will see here are different from the classic misdirection released through the Media by “The U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics, National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)” to the public. The Afterclap uses a proprietary Mathematical Formula and Process, “Calculating the Percent of a Perfect Score.

The process produces two essential products:

1. The percent of points earned.

2. The equivalent Classroom Grade.

The math is not complicated. However, students are expected to master this level of math before leaving the Eighth-Grade.

Calculating the Percent of a Perfect Score is vital because, in Education and Communication, the Sender must start where the Receiver’s level of knowledge is. Otherwise, all the Receiver hears or sees is misdirection or misinformation because they do not understand it. At The Afterclap, we believe a super-majority of the adults in the United States understands percent and classroom grades ranging from zero to a perfect score of one-hundred.

To convert a Percent of a Perfect Score to a classroom grade, drop the percent sign and round to the nearest whole number.  All average scores found within this post are classroom equivalent grades.

All students.
