Background: The Nation's Report Card is the largest ongoing assessment of what U.S. students know and can do. Annually, students across the country participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress in different subjects in grades 4, 8 and 12. Every other year, the Council of the Great City Schools member districts have the opportunity to be selected through an application process for the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA). As a result of participation, TUDA districts receive results for reading and math in grades 4 and 8. Milwaukee Public Schools participated as a TUDA in 2009, 2011, and 2013. The district withdrew from participation in 2015 in hopes of being able to benchmark with other districts using the Smarter Balanced Assessments, which was then discontinued during the first administration. When that opportunity failed to materialize, MPS was fortunate that Congress expanded the TUDA participation and MPS was able to again participate. This assessment is the only way to benchmark with other similar districts on an assessment that has not changed since its beginning in 1998.

This presentation will highlight information about our performance on the 2017 NAEP assessment in reading and math at grades 4 and 8 compared to 26 other TUDA districts, the national public average and the large urban districts value.
