The National Center for Education Statistics released the 2013 NAEP this morning for 4th and 8th grade Reading and Math. I will be crunching the numbers for some time to come, but here is a quick look at the net results by state jurisdiction (combined 2013 scores minus combined 2011 scores).
Quick takes: DC and TN crushed the ball with gains four times larger than the national average. These look to be truly historic gains with both DC and TN scoring statistically significantly higher in all four tests.
Indiana scores big with gains almost three times the national average. Florida gets back on track with gains more than twice the national average.
More number crunching to follow but a
for top gainers DC, TN and IN is already in order.
