2019 Fourth Grade NAEP Science Results

At the end of the time between Birth and this Fourth Grade Cohort, these Lifelong learners are already behind published expectations and hope. What was not released, if it was collected at all, was the impact of Adult-education levels. However, this impact is part of the Eighth-Grade-Cohort release. The effect of Adult-education levels is brought up because the time between a child’s birth and their fourth year in elementary school is within the years needed to lay and build the foundations for life-long learning. At the time of the assessment, roughly nine years had passed, and with the current release of information, eleven years have passed. How is it possible to make up for eleven years used ineffectively?

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 math is not complicated. You or your child is/were expected to master it before leaving the Eighth-Grade.

The process produces two essential products:

1. The percent of points earned.

2. The equivalent Classroom 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 percents 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.
