Scores are also reported at selected percentiles, showing changes in the performance of lower-, middle-, and higher-performing students. Results for groups of students defined by various background characteristics (e.g., gender, race/ethnicity, and students; eligibility for free or reduced-price school lunch) are included, as well as sample assessment questions with examples of student responses...

Students at all levels of performance made gains, resulting in higher percentages of students at or above the Basic and Proficient achievemnet levels..."
