Document Number: 5060Beating the Odds IV: A City-by-City Analysis of Student Performance and Achievement Gap on State Assessments - The fourth in a series, this report provides the results on reading and math assessments in the 2002-03 academic year for students in the 61-member urban districts of the Council of the Great City Schools. It provides student demographic and staffing data for every district, compares district data and results with those of their respective state overall, and disaggregates scores by race, income, English proficiency and disability. The results indicate that, while the districts reported on are still scoring as a group below state and national averages in math and reading, they are both raising student performance levels in these subject areas and narrowing achievement gaps. An executive summary and summary tables are also available, as well as profiles for all 61-member cities.
