Average reading scores of U.S. 4th grade students, by race/ethnicity: 2011

*p<.05. Significantly different from the U.S. average score.
NOTE: Reporting standards were not met for American Indian/Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander. Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, and Asian includes Pacific Islander and Native Hawaiian. Racial categories exclude Hispanic origin. Students who identified themselves as being of Hispanic origin were classified as Hispanic, regardless of their race. Although data for some race/ethnicities are not shown separately because the reporting standards were not met, they are included in the U.S. and state totals shown throughout the report. See appendix A in this report for more information. The standard errors of the estimates are shown in table E-5 available at http://nces.ed.gov/pubsearch/pubsinfo.asp?pubid=2013010.
