2015 National Assessment of Education Progress Trial Urban District Assessment: Results for Austin Independent School District
Austin ISD is one of 21 US urban school districts participating in the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA). AISD students consistently perform well on the 4th and 8th grade reading and math assessments.
The disparity in passing rates of at-risk and not at-risk students decreased for nearly half of STAAR subjects and grades, but increased in nearly as many cases. However, the gap narrowed to the smallest measured in six years of graduation rates.
This report describes the AISD at-risk student population and expenditures for 2012-2013, results from program evaluations conducted in 2011-2012 and 2012-2013, and the longitudinal disparity between performance of at-risk and not-at-risk students.
