SD = Students with Disabilities.
LEP = Limited English Proficient students.
NOTE: Within each grade level, the combined SD and/or LEP portion of the table is not a sum of the separate SD and LEP portions because some students were identified as both SD and LEP. Such students would be counted separately in the bottom portions, but counted only once in the top portion.
Within each portion of the table, percentages may not sum properly due to rounding. In 1994, the geography assessment was conducted at the same time as the 1994 U.S. history assessment. The identification and exclusion of special-needs students occurred after they were sampled, but before they could be assigned either a history or geography session. As a consequence, the 1994 sample sizes for identified and excluded students appear larger than would be expected given the weighted percentages that were calculations based on the geography sample only.
