5 The Learning Gap Learning Gaps Persist In State Mastery Test Scores Edge Up, But Blacks, Hispanics, Poor Lag Behind March 6, 2002 By ROBERT A. FRAHM, Courant Staff Writer Black and Hispanic children continue to make slow, steady gains in academic performance but still lag far behind most Connecticut public school students, new test results show. Only 25 percent of black and Hispanic children reach the state's fourth-grade reading goal, for example, compared with more than 70 percent of white students, according to Connecticut Mastery Test scores being released today. Overall scores edged upward, but the test, which reached greater numbers of special education and non-English speaking students this year, identifies one in five of Connecticut's fourth-graders as a poor reader. Aside from the poor performance of many blacks and Hispanics, major learning gaps persist among non-English speakers and the poor. And the latest scores show that boys lag well behind girls in writing skills on the annual exam, the state's chief measure of academic progress.
