The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), in partnership with the National Assessment Governing Board and the Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS), created the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in 2002 to support the improvement of student achievement in the nation's large urban districts. NAEP TUDA results in mathematics and reading are based on representative samples of 1,100 to 2,300 public school students at grade 4 and 900 to 2,100 public school students at grade 8 in each participating urban district in 2013. Twenty-one urban districts participated in the 2013 assessments. This one-page report presents overall results, achievement-level percentages and average score results, scores at selected percentiles, average scores for district and large cities, results for student groups in 2013, and score gaps for student groups. In 2013, the average score of fourth-grade students in Houston was 236. This was not significantly different from the average score of 235 for public school students in large cities. The average score for students in Houston in 2013 (236) was not significantly different from their average score in 2011 (237) and was higher than their average score in 2003 (227). The score gap between higher performing students in Houston (those at the 75th percentile) and lower performing students (those at the 25th percentile) was 36 points in 2013. This performance gap was not significantly different from that in 2003 (33 points). The percentage of students in Houston who performed at or above the NAEP "Proficient" level was 32 percent in 2013. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2011 (32 percent) and was greater than that in 2003 (18 percent). The percentage of students in Houston who performed at or above the NAEP "Basic" level was 80 percent in 2013. This percentage was not significantly different from that in 2011 (82 percent) and was greater than that in 2003 (70 percent).
