NOTE: NAEP reading cut scores at grade 8 are 243 for Basic and 281 for Proficient. The following states' grade 8 reading test data were not used in the analysis or received special treatment: ME, MT, and VA—discrepancies exist between the state assessment data and the state document; CA and LA—reading data not available for the state assessment, so English Language Arts (ELA) data used; KY, MA, MI, MN, MO, NV, and WA—neither reading nor ELA data available in the state data file; AL, NH, RI, SD, UT, and VT—state assessment data not available. NE—state results were based on assessments developed by each local education agency. For more information about missing states and exclusion rates in each state, see A Profile of State Assessment Standards.
