Education, U.S. Department of. “United States Education Dashboard – Detail.” United             States Education Dashboard – Detail. N.p., n.d. Web. 03 Nov. 2016.

This chart was made from the United States Education dashboard and depicts a change in  percentage of 8th grade students passing a math proficiency exam given by the state of Hawaii. The bar chart shows that students who are at or above basic proficiency had a change of 6 from 2007 to 2009 (United States Education Dashboard 1). Those who were proficient in the exam changed by 4 from 2007 to 2009 and those who were advanced changed by 1 percent (1). Overall the difference in percentage from 2007 to 2009 changed by 11 (Hawaiian mathematics proficiency, Plotly). This shows that education has improved in Hawaii in 2007 to 2009, which implies that more efficient teaching methods were possibly used or that there was implementation of new technology.
