Compared to 2017, middle school KPREP results released today showed potentially important increases in reading and writing proficiency, but also showed proficiency declines in mathematics and social studies.
As shown in the table below, this pattern was visible for all students and also English learners, students eligible for free or reduced-price meals, Hispanic students, and students of two or more races. For African American students, proficiency increased in social studies as well as reading and writing, but for students with identified disabilities, only the writing results improved.
