3rd Grade Testing by School and Race

While the tools and procedures for measuring proficiency have changed over time, NYSED has considered student performance at levels 3-4 to be proficient throughout the timeframe of the data presented here. While performance at level 2 is not considered proficient, students performing at level 2 or above are considered on track to graduate. Please see this 2021 NYSED press release for a definition of ELA performance levels.
