  • Description: Results from the 2013 NAEP assessments show fourth-and eighth-graders making progress in mathematics and reading. Nationally representative samples of more than 376,000 fourth-graders and 341,000 eighth-graders were assessed in either mathematics or reading in 2013. Results are reported for public and private school students in the nation, and for public school students in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Department of Defense schools. This snapshot report covers the overall results, achievement level percentages and average score results, comparison of the average scores in 2013 to other states/jurisdictions, average scores for state/jurisdiction and nation (public), results for student groups in 2013, and score gaps for student groups. In 2013, the average score of eighth-grade students in the District of Columbia was 265. This was lower than the average score of 284 for public school students in the nation. The average score for students in the District of Columbia in 2013 (265) was higher than their average score in 2011 (260) and in 1990 (231). The score gap between higher performing students in the District of Columbia (those at the 75th percentile) and lower performing students (those at the 25th percentile) was 51 points in 2013. This performance gap was wider than that in 1990 (43 points). The percentage of students in the District of Columbia who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 19 percent in 2013. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2011 (17 percent) and was greater than that in 1990 (3 percent). The percentage of students in the District of Columbia who performed at or above the NAEP "Basic" level was 54 percent in 2013. This percentage was greater than that in 2011 (48 percent) and in 1990 (17 percent). [For the main report, "The Nation's Report Card: A First Look--2013 Mathematics and Reading.
