NAEP Scores Flat for Students with Disabilities

by Sandy Shacklady-White

The Institute of Education Sciences recently released the 2017 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results for math and reading. Students with disabilities received flat scores on the “Nations Report Card.” Results indicate a failure to close the gap with students not identified as having disabilities, who also reflected generally flat performance since the 2015 assessment. Most students with disabilities performed in the “below basic” achievement level.
NAEP results serve as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, U.S. History, and in technology and engineering literacy.
