Title: The Nationís Report Card: Trial Urban District Assessment Mathematics 2011
Description: This report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) presents results from the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in mathematics. Representative samples of fourth- and eighth-grade public school students from 21 urban districts participated in the 2011 assessment. Student performance is reported as average scale scores and as percentages of students who attained the achievement levels set by the National Assessment Governing Board. District results are compared to results for all students attending public schools in the nation and large cities (i.e., cities with populations of 250,000 or more) overall and by race/ethnicity and eligibility for free/reduced-price school lunch. In 2011, scores for both fourth- and eighth-graders in 6 districts were higher than the scores for students in large cities, and scores for both grades were lower in 10 districts. Among the 18 districts that also participated in the 2009 assessment, scores were higher in 2011 for four districts at grade 4 and six districts at grade 8. There were no significant declines in scores from 2009 to 2011 at either grade.
