NOTE: The numbers reported in this table are rounded. Subtracting the 2007 values from the 2009 values will not return the exact differences that appear in tables A-1 and A-2 in the appendix of the full report. Relative error is a measure of how well the mapping procedure reproduces the percentages reported by the state as meeting the standard in each NAEP-participating school.
