Note: In 2015, Vermont joined the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium which created an assessment that is fully aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Since the student test scores released establish a new baseline aligned with the Common Core, they should not be compared to previous statewide test scores.

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.
