Math Proficiency - 8th Grade

Reports & Graphics

Definition

Percentage of 8th-grade students who perform at or above proficient in math, 2011.

Description

Educational attainment is a major factor in an individual’s future earning power, and the math skills that students develop in middle school are critical to future academic success. Students who fail to demonstrate grade level proficiency in math are at risk of being tracked into non-college prep courses in high school, which can perpetuate the process of falling behind and exclude them from opportunities for higher learning. A low percentage of students performing at or above grade-level proficiency can indicate a larger, underlying education problem within the state, such as poor teacher quality or spending inequity in high-poverty districts.
