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: 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; CA and LA—reading data not available for the state assessment, so English Language Arts (ELA) data used; AL, KY, MA, MI, MN, MO, NV, NH, NM, OH, RI, SD, TN, UT, VT, WA, and WV—state assessment data not available; NE—results deleted because state results are 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. For more information on the number of schools in the 2003 NAEP sample, see Appendix A (745K PDF) in The Nation's Report Card: Reading 2003.
