“Chicago students’ scores, well below average in third grade, improve from third to eighth grade in Chicago at a rate faster than 96 percent of districts in the US. And Chicago third-graders’ test scores are higher in more recent student cohorts than in older cohorts. These patterns are evident both on the Illinois Standards Achievement Test results and the NAEP assessments, which suggests that the patterns of test score growth reflect real improvements in students’ academic skills” -Stanford CEPA Report
