Dallas NOTE: The 2017 assessed sample for Dallas in grade 4 reading was not representative of the target population for two major reporting groups: Hispanic and English language learner students. Assessed samples in Dallas for other grades and subjects in 2017 were unaffected.
NOTE: Black includes African American, Hispanic includes Latino, and Pacific Islander includes Native Hawaiian. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin. Prior to 2011, students in the "two or more races" category were categorized as "unclassified." DCPS = District of Columbia Public Schools. The NAEP Reading scale ranges from 0 to 500. Some apparent differences between estimates may not be statistically significant. Analyze results with NAEP Data Explorer.
