Data Source


"LNE" = Low Number Event. A LNE occurs when the number of children is masked by the reporting agency because it is so low that revealing the number could potentially identify a specific child.

"NA" = Not Applicable. No student of that race/ethnicity took the exam in this year.

The U.S. Department of Education requires that information on student ethnicity and race be collected separately. Respondents may select only one category for ethnicity (Hispanic/Latino or Not Hispanic/Latino) but may select multiple designations for race. Respondents who select "Hispanic/Latino" for ethnicity are counted in this category for aggregate reporting, regardless of the responses provided to the question on race. Respondents who select “Not Hispanic/Latino” for ethnicity, and select more than one category for race, will be counted in the category “Two or More Races” for aggregate reporting.
