The Nation’s Report Card: Mathematics and Reading 2011, Trial Urban District Assessment, Grades 4 and 8
Please join the National Assessment Governing Board on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2011 at 10 a.m. EST for a live event and webcast to release the results of The Nation’s Report Card: Mathematics and Reading 2011, Trial Urban District Assessment, Grades 4 and 8.
The results for each of the 21 cities participating in the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) will include comparisons to large cities and the nation, and achievement gap data by racial/ethnic group, income level, and gender. These results expand on recently released national NAEP data showing the highest average mathematics scores to date, mixed results for reading achievement, and states’ progress in closing achievement gaps.
Jack Buckley, commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, will present the data. He will be joined by Andrés Alonso, chief executive officer of Baltimore City Public Schools and member of the National Assessment Governing Board; and Michael Casserly, executive director of Council of the Great City Schools. Tonya Miles, also a member of the National Assessment Governing Board, will moderate the event.
