District Science Results for English Language Learners Who Could Be Assessed

Compared to English language learners in large central city schools...

  • at grade 4 in Austin and Houston, English language learners who were assessed had higher average scores, while those in Chicago and New York City had lower average scores.
  • at grade 8 in Charlotte, English language learners who were assessed had higher average scores, while those in Los Angeles had lower average scores.

As shown in the distribution table for each grade, the percentage of students identified as English language learners varies across districts.

#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: 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.
