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: DCPS = District of Columbia Public Schools. National public and Large city are not included in sorting the jurisdictions. Score differences are calculated based on differences between unrounded scores.
