Definition and Source



Disparity in the percent of White and Hispanic students is rated as demonstrating readiness for kindergarten in the domains of "language and literacy" and "mathematical thinking" (average) on the Maryland Model for School Readiness kindergarten assessment for the school year ending in that year.

For example, a value of 15 means that there is a 15% point gap between the percent of White students and the percent of Hispanic students demonstrating readiness for kindergarten. A positive number indicates that a higher percentage of White students than Hispanic students are fully ready for kindergarten. 

Larger numbers indicate a greater disparity.
