Puerto Rico performance in mathematics unchanged between 2011 and 2013
This report focuses on the performance of students on the 2013 NAEP mathematics assessment administered in Spanish to public school students in Puerto Rico. Because of technical issues in earlier administrations, results are available for 2011 and 2013 only (see About the Assessment for more details). Average scores for students in Puerto Rico were unchanged between 2011 and 2013, with fourth-graders scoring 182 in both years and eighth-graders scoring 218. Students who scored at least 214 at grade 4 and at least 262 at grade 8 reached the Basic achievement level, which denotes partial mastery of prerequisite knowledge and skills that are fundamental for proficient work at the grade assessed. One percent or fewer of fourth- and eighth-grade students in Puerto Rico scored at or above the Proficient level.
