NOTE: Groups not shown are included in overall. In NAEP, lower-income students are students identified as eligible for the National School Lunch Program. Black includes African American, and Hispanic includes Latino. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin. The 50th percentile represents the middle score in the distribution of scores for public school students nationally. The average score for these students, however, fell below that point at the 47th percentile because there was a greater concentration of scores toward the lower end of the scale compared to the higher end.
