Quantifying State-Level Academic Achievement Gaps


by Terry Spradlin November 14, 2005

In September 2005, the Center for Evaluation and Education Policy (CEEP) at Indiana University Bloomington issued a state-level report that quantified the academic achievement gaps that persist in Indiana between subgroups of students. This report received extensive media coverage across the state and has contributed to the K12 education policy reform discussion policy makers and education leaders are having. The study entailed an in-depth analysis of a number of performance measures (in addition to state standardized testing) over time that could be replicated in other states to provide a clear picture of the extent of their achievement gaps. Following are the highlights of the CEEP report regarding the achievement gaps in Indiana.
