Free and Reduced Lunch Students In fourth grade there were 37 states that improved on their mathematic score from 2009 to 2011. 12 states improved their score by 3 or 4 points. 25 states, including Indiana, had 4th grade students improve their average scale score by 1 or 2 points. There were some states who improved but did not assess all of the students with disabilities and English language learners. This must be taken into account when considering improvement. 4th Grade Average Student Scale Score improvements for student qualified for Free and Reduced Lunch from 2009 to 2011 * states that did not meet National Inclusion Policy– students with disabilities and English language learners

NOTE: The NAEP Mathematics scale ranges from 0 to 500. Some apparent differences between estimates may not be statistically significant.

Indiana’s 8th grade students had the 7th highest mathematics score. There were 18 states that had the same or higher scale score than Indiana, however, 6 of those states did not meet student inclusion guidelines set by the National Assessment Governing Board. The expectation is to have each state have at least 85% of their students with disabilities and English language leaner population who were selected to participate. The indicated states with asterisks fell below 85% in either one or both areas.
