The chart from ILA 4 had to do with the percentage of students at or above passing proficiency for a math exam for 8th graders in Hawaii. This chart was taken from the United States education dashboard and shows the percentages of ethnicities of 8th graders in California who passed a Standardized Math Exam (United States Education Dashboard 1). In the other chart, there was an increase in percentages in those who are at or above the passing proficiency of the exam from 2007 to 2009. In this chart, all the percentages stay the same except for Hispanics and Native American/ Alaskan Natives. The Hispanic percentage increased by 1 percent while the data for Native Americans did not meet the reporting standard (California Mathematics Proficiency, Plotly). This shows that there actually was an increase from 2007 to 2009 in both charts. These changes could possibly show that the increase in percentages could be due to technological or teaching advancements/improvements.
