NAEP 2009 Reading Report for Massachusetts (Embargoed)
Student Eligibility for the National School Lunch Program
NAEP collects data on eligibility for the federal program providing free or reduced-price school lunches. The free/reduced-price lunch component of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) offered through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is designed to ensure that children near or below the poverty line receive nourishing meals. Eligibility is determined through the USDA's Income Eligibility Guidelines, and results for this category of students are included as an indicator of low family income. NAEP first collected information on participation in this program in 1996; therefore, cross-year comparisons to assessments prior to 1996 cannot be made.
Tables 5-A and 5-B show average scale scores and achievement-level data for public school students at grades 4 and 8 in Massachusetts and the nation, by student eligibility for the NSLP.

Grade 4 Scale Score Results by Free/Reduced-Price School Lunch Eligibility

 In 2009, students in Massachusetts eligible for free/reduced-price lunch had an average reading scale score of 215. This was lower than that of students in Massachusetts not eligible for this program (243).

 In 2009, students in Massachusetts who were eligible for free/reduced-price school lunch had an average score that was lower than that of students who were not eligible for free/reduced-price school lunch by 28 points. In 1998, the average score for students in Massachusetts who were eligible for free/reduced-price school lunch was lower than the score of those not eligible by 28 points.

 Students in Massachusetts eligible for free/reduced-price lunch had an average scale score (215) in 2009 that was higher than that of students in the nation who were eligible (206).

In Massachusetts, students eligible for free/reduced-price lunch had an average reading scale score in 2009 that was higher than that of eligible students in 1998, 2003, and 2005, but not significantly different from that of eligible students in 2002 and 2007.

Grade 4 Achievement-Level Results by Free/Reduced-Price School Lunch Eligibility
 In Massachusetts, 23 percent of students who were eligible for free/reduced-price lunch and 59 percent of those who were not eligible for this program performed at or above Proficient in 2009. These percentages were significantly different from one another.

 For students in Massachusetts in 2009 who were eligible for free/reduced-price lunch, the percentage at or above Proficient (23 percent) was greater than the corresponding percentage for their counterparts around the nation (17 percent).

 In Massachusetts, the percentage of students eligible for free/reduced-price lunch who performed at or above Proficient for 2009 was greater than the percentage for 1998, but not significantly different from the corresponding percentages for 2002, 2003, 2005, and 2007.
