State assessments, which are used to measure student achievement in reading, math, and science, are designed by each state to measure the content the state has determined appropriate for that grade and subject. As a result, both the content on the tests and achievement standards students must meet to be considered “proficient” vary widely across states, so proficiency rates should not be compared across states. Many states have also changed their standards and assessments at some point in the process of measuring their students, so it is often not possible to create a trend line that looks at changes in achievement across years, since a change could actually reflect a change in the assessment.

Through the 2009-10 school year, states were allowed to calculate student graduation rates differently, as long as the figure represents students who graduated in the standard number of years (i.e., four). Starting in the 2010-11, states converted to an adjusted cohort graduation rate, which may or may not be the same as the calculation they used in prior years. Due to the potential differences, caution should be used when comparing graduation rates across states.

For detailed information about state assessments and graduation rates, please see the state Accountability Workbooks, which can be found at: State Accountability Workbooks:

1 Description: The statewide number of long-term students testing below grade level in reading upon entry into a state agency juvenile corrections or juvenile detention facility.; Academic Year: 2008-09; Grade: N/A; Note: The total statewide number of long-term students testing below grade level in reading upon entry into a state agency juvenile corrections or juvenile detention facility. Long-term students are those who have been enrolled in a program for 90 or more consecutive calendar days. Only pre-test data are required to determine grade level upon entry; long-term students who have either pre- and post-test data or pre-test-only data may be included in this item. A juvenile corrections program serves delinquent children and youth and is a public or private residential facility, other than a foster home, that is operated for the care of children and youth who have been adjudicated delinquent or in need of supervision, including programs serving adjudicated youth (including non-secure facilities and group homes). A juvenile detention program is a shorter-term detention facility that provides care to children who require secure custody pending court adjudication, court disposition, or execution of a court order, or care to children after commitment. A dash (-) indicates that the data are missing or not available. The symbol "n <" indicates that the data has been suppressed due to a small count. A “†” symbol means not applicable.; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2008-09:; Data Uploaded On: 06/11/2012
