Fourth-Grade Math Proficiency, 2017

Definition: Fourth-grade mathematics proficiency gives the percentage of fourth-grade public school students in the United States who scored at or above proficiency level in mathematics in 2017. Public schools include charter schools and exclude Bureau of Indian Education schools and Department of Defense Education Activity schools. These are the same data as found in the Home Visiting Yearbook 2018 because more recent data were not yet available.
