Quality Counts 2014 report

The18th annual edition of Quality Counts rates states and the nation on key student-performance
and finance indicators. The K-12 Achievement Index assesses state performance against a broad set of 18 separate indicators or criteria, including results on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, high school graduation rates, and scores on Advanced Placement exams. Unlike more-limited score cards on student achievement, the index analyzes results across three crucial dimensions: current state performance, improvements over time, and equity as measured by poverty-based achievement gaps. Findings point out the negative impact of poverty.
