| ISAT scores show Achievement Gap closing in District 2
|Research shows demographics are a key factor in student achievement. Students who are white or Asian typically perform higher than students who are learning English, are low-income or Hispanic. That is the main reason the No Child Left Behind Act requires schools to measure student test score results based on demographics.
Recently released scores on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test show District 2’s efforts to close that gap are paying off.
In the last five years, the performance gap between District 2’s white subgroup and Limited English students closed 23.3 percentage points in reading, with 71.5 percent of Limited English students meeting or exceeding standards.
