New Schools in the 2000 Assessment

As a result of this process, four new schools had their weights trimmed at grade 4 (one each in Connecticut and Missouri and two in Kansas), and ten schools had their weights trimmed at grade 8 (one each in Georgia, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, and West Virginia; and five in Wyoming).

The following tables show the distribution of the new-school trimming factor SCHTFCT among the 2000 state assessment's participating jurisdictions by grade (fourth and eighth), assessment subject (mathematics and science), and reporting population. Reporting populations differ by whether accommodations were offered to disabled or limited English proficiency (SD/LEP) students. The non-accommodated reporting population, also known as the R2 reporting population, includes all non SD/LEP students plus SD/LEP students from non-accommodated sessions. The accommodated reporting population, also known as the R3 reporting population, includes all non SD/LEP students plus SD/LEP students from accommodated sessions.
