Note: In the case of missing percentages, ECF estimated the missing numbers in the proportions suggested by the state NAEP distribution.

Note: If the free/reduced lunch percent for a school was reported as <5%, >95%, or as a range, it was changed to a whole number for graphing purposes.

Each state defines for itself what “proficient” means; some states have a rigorous definition, while others are less strict in their standards. To see how states compare, ECF has published charts showing the percentage of students deemed proficient in various subjects and grade levels and compared them to percentages reported for each state by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP, or “The Nation’s Report Card”), considered to be the gold standard.
