NOTE: NAEP mathematics cut scores at grade 8 are 262 for Basic and 299 for Proficient. The following states’ grade 8 mathematics test data were not used in the analysis or received special treatment: VA—results deleted due to discrepancies between state assessment data and the state document; CT and LA—standard used for mapping is different from the standard specified as the AYP level; AL, CA, KS, MN, NE, NH, NM, NV, OH, RI, SD, TN, UT, VT, WA, and WV—state assessment data not available. For more information about missing states and exclusion rates in each state, see A Profile of State Assessment Standards. For more information on the number of schools in the 2003 NAEP sample, see Appendix A (672K PDF) in The Nation's Report Card: Mathematics 2003.
