District Science Results by Race/Ethnicity

Racial/ethnic groups in participating districts kept pace with large central cities.

  • At grade 4, White, Black, and Hispanic students in Austin and Houston outperformed their counterparts in large central cities. This was also the case for White students in Atlanta.
  • At grade 8, White students in Austin, Houston, and Charlotte, as well as Hispanic students in Austin, outperformed their peers in large central cities.
Average fourth-grade NAEP science scores and percentages of White students within each achievement level in 2005

# The estimate rounds to zero.
* Average scores are significantly different from large central city public schools.
** Average scores are significantly different from the nation (public schools).
NOTE: Race categories exclude Hispanic origin. The NAEP science scale ranges from 0 to 300. Detail may not sum to totals because of rounding. The shaded bars are graphed using unrounded numbers.
