† Not applicable. The inclusion/exclusion criteria used to produce the tabulations require high school graduates to have a positive number of English credits.

! Interpret data with caution. Users are cautioned against performing t-tests on cells with NAEP proficiency estimates that have been calculated with less than 62 observations (N). NAEP considers a cell size of 62 the minimum required for performing meaningful comparisons.

‡ Reporting standards not met. Means and standard errors based on less than 30 observations are not reported.

1 American Indian includes Alaska Native, Black includes African American, Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian, and Hispanic includes Latino. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin unless specified.

2 "Region of the country" refers to the Census-defined regions. For more information about Census-defined regions, see the U.S. Census Bureau online publication "Census Regions and Divisions of the United States" (http://www.census.gov/geo/www/us_regdiv.pdf [1.1M PDF]).
